Intelligent Vending Machines: A Global Strategic Business Report
San Jose, California (PRWEB) June 10, 2015
Follow us on LinkedIn – Vending machines are currently undergoing a digital transformation, given the growing trend towards Internet-connected devices. The introduction of ‘Internet of Things’ (IoT) into the vending market is facilitating the conversion of traditional vending machines to go beyond just offering snacks and beverages to provide a more engaging and interactive retail experience to users. Armed with various hi-tech features, intelligent vending machines offer a more interactive, personal, and fun experience to customers, while enabling operators and brands to use data analytics and cloud services to enhance efficiency and reduce operational costs. Rapid urbanization and resulting increase in traffic at public places is further strengthening the business case for intelligent vending machines.
Connected vending machines have evolved to become smarter with the use of big data and analytics which help businesses interpret consumer behavior and preferences to design safe, secure, and appropriate product options. Cashless transactions coupled with the emergence of mobile commerce (m-commerce) offers potential growth opportunities for automatic merchandising. With non-food and high priced product vending becoming popular, cashless machines are poised to fuel future growth in the market. Intelligent vending machines perform automatic currency rendering calculations at lightning speed making it far more efficient than manual calculations which are prone to errors. In addition, regulations to display product warnings and accurate and clear product nutrition information, including calorie count, is further driving the adoption of intelligent vending machines.
