Where goods or services have to be provided on site, cost-effectively and quickly, vending machines have long been the first choice. The requirements on their operation, however, have changed fundamentally. In the IoT (Internet of Things) machines become platforms for controlling offers, accessing rewards, advertising and thus represent a new means of creating customer loyalty.
Large-format, attractive touch displays as well as dialogue-oriented sales and payment processes are another prerequisite along with intelligent, network-capable control systems and HMIs. They enable energy-efficient operation of the machine peripherals, the transfer of sales data into the cloud via telemetry, the interconnection of established and contactless payment systems and the integration of mobile devices and machine with one another via app.
Whether as classical goods vending machines, ticket or pay and display machines, kiosk solution, payment terminal or charging station – dialogue-oriented sales and payment processes, loyalty functions, e-couponing and smart advertising are key developments of our time. They enable the operator to achieve additional sales and acquire new customers.
With its smart vending products, AVANGARD enables these opportunities to be seized. HMI systems suitable for outdoor use with MDB and telemetry capability as well as payment systems such as card reader with antenna make your vending machines fit for the future.
