VendScreen personalizes the vending experience while utilizing the intuitive ‘Touch & Swipe’ user interface already familiar to millions of people using smartphones and other touch screen devices every day, so our users gain rich information and interactive services without the hassle of a new learning curve.
VendScreen wirelessly delivers nutrition data and advertising to displays mounted on vending machines while collecting real-time, point-of-sale information for analytics tracking. We give users the ability to review nutrition information prior to purchase while providing operators a seamless and automatic system to comply with the new calorie disclosure law. We offer advertisers uncluttered access to a two-way connection with consumers in a manner previously not possible – at the vending machine at the very moment of the purchase decision!
VendScreen is a complete vending solution with patents pending on the following:
- Device hardware with a one-of-a-kind user interface, which can be installed on new machines or retrofitted onto almost every existing vending machine
- Innovative sync technology, which seamlessly keeps data on the device updated with product and inventory information without any user interaction
- Cloud-based server with rich data processing
Our device and services will add great value to existing and new vending machines, including: * Nutrition information (soon to be required by law) Promotions and advertising * Cashless payment (credit, loyalty and online accounts) Analytical data * DEX data upload for third-party dynamic route scheduling and pre-kitting
In short, we equip vending machines with an Android-based smart device, connect it to the Internet wirelessly, then leverage the setup for a variety of applications, which build value for users, operators and advertisers.
