Make a difference with vending

‘Recycling’ vending machines are on the rise in our supermarkets. Since the end of last year, more and more machines have appeared in our stores and they usually offer a cash-coupon incentive to use towards the cost of your bill. These machines are well within the scope of Intelligent Vending’s technology and we are surprised that, so far, no one had approached us to make one! Reducing, reusing and recycling is so important to our planet; it is brilliant to see people and corporations joining together to continually raise the level of awareness for this. Intelligent Vending want to show our pride and approval of the efforts being made, particularly through vending, to change our world…in more ways than one!

The Techy Side!

So, it has taken some time, (as we have been absolutely rushed off our feet at Intelligent Vending!) but we have even more updates to our website, and this time it is the technology site! We are so excited by the changes and for you to see our platform overview, now included on our pages. These updates are far from over, and we will be expanding our technology side further and further. So watch this space and keep abreast of our fantastic news, technology and innovative thinking.

More new vending options

After our little revelation yesterday, we have some more for you today! Sadly, the Bespoke Planogram Configuration options were only available as a standard Intelligent Vending service based on the SandenVendo G-snack machines… but let me outline for you what is available for our wider range of vending machines.

We wanted to make our customer journey and experience a rich and effortless one; this inspired us to make our vending machine selections, additions and payment options as straight-forward as possible. We now have even more options available at a mere click of the finger. For those that require Installation and Training, there are 3 options to choose from, including telephone support or an engineer visit. If Vinyl Branding is something you are interested in exploring, there is now a choice of 4 options here, including the High-End & Design Package or a more modest Base Package. We’re specialists in branding equipment and are always pushing the boundaries in terms of the materials used. All our decals are also applied by one of the leading authorised 3M vinyl wrappers in the UK.

As a company we are always looking for ways to improve our customer journey and experience, so we are constantly reflecting on our work, products and services to maintain our high levels of customer care.

New vending options.

We have been busy at Intelligent Vending! Now, on our website we have some exciting news! As a new option, when you buy our vending machines, we now have a Bespoke Planogram Configuration opportunity.  This has been a service we’ve always offered to clients, but it is now readily accessible for clients, making pricing more transparent and selection options via our website even easier! However, this is only available as a standard online offering for SandenVendo vending machines due to their highly flexible build and Japanese innovation, but never-fear, there are some more fabulous options available for a range of vending machines… just wait and see!

90 years in 2 days

In 2 days it is here. The 90 year anniversary celebrations begin. Make sure you don’t miss it! The AVA is hosting this wonderful event; what a fantastic way to start the weekend early. Charity vend prize draw, food of the world, the latest in wine and champagne vending, not to mention the fantastic people that help make it an event to remember! Two more sleeps!

Milk it some more!

It was noted in a previous Intelligent Vending blog, Milk it, that a new visionary concept was on the loose. To reduce our plastic consumption there was a new milk vending machine which people could take their own bottles to and fill them up to their hearts content thus reducing their plastic consumption… well this revolutionary idea seems to have sparked more creative imagination and it has been reported in The Free Press that a family-run farm in North Yorkshire have converted a horsebox into a mobile vending machine! Selling fresh milk and cheese in rural communities. The venture, known as The Home Farmer, offers customers the chance to self-serve whole milk into glass bottles and savour the taste of milk produced from the family’s herd of cows. How udderly brilliant!

The show is accessible for members and non-members and everyone we know is very excited about it. Let’s rock on for another 90 years.

Pockets full of Posy’s

Automated retail is currently coming in leaps and bounds, with more and more products on the market being available from vending machines and kiosks. Intelligent Vending like to keep abreast of new developments and pass any cool and unusual tech-awareness on to the masses. Vending International recently reported that a British company have fresh, hand tied bouquets of flowers available at any time of the day or night. The automated florist in Greater London is installed with a dry-cooling system providing the specific climate that the flowers need, and each unit is installed with an intuitive touchscreen and software system. The vending machine itself is also very aesthetically pleasing. This definitely puts a new slant on ‘stopping to smell the roses.’ Click on the link for the full informative article by Vending International.
