1. Sanitizers and PPE
The COVID-19 pandemic has taught us the importance of sanitizing our hands and wearing protective equipment like masks, face shields, wet wipes, tissues, and more. More importantly, critical care givers need access to such lifesaving commodities so that they can continue providing their services without worrying about access limitations. It is quite likely that people may suddenly run out of these items, or just have an emergency need for them. Such vending machines can be placed in any area with heavy footfall, close to hospitals, subway stations, and so on. At eVending, we have specialized machines for sanitizer and PPE that have been designed and configurated for a safe end-user experience in these trying times. The Sani-Center PPE Vending Machine, for example, provides consumers with safe and easy access to personal protection equipment, safety products, medical supplies and more.
