The product has thermostatically controlled forced air-cooling as well as having product pre-cooling. Each column has an individual vend motor and boasts an anti-theft device. Whether your desired location is in an office, school, university, leisure centre, airport or more, this drinks vending machine offers convenient and essential thirst-quenching cold drinks at the push of a button.

 

Univercelly great performers

Univercell Plus is a UK brand of batteries aimed at the industrial, commercial and consumer sectors. The batteries have been compared to the Duracell Plus (copper-top) battery range… so this suggests they are great performers. With an array of battery sizes all in boxes of 100 this brand really isn’t one to be missed.

A Russian Batch

At Intelligent Wholesale we are never afraid to deal with the niche side of the market, and here we have not one, not two, not three, but an entire bundle of goodies that to some could be a little goldmine! All in amazing condition, this deal showcases ex-test Russian payment systems from a previous Intelligent Vending project. Some are even brand new and still in the original packaging, other pieces of the bundle have been used by Intelligent Vending for configuration of machines and design of electronics for a previous project in Russia. The software may require some updating at a test centre in Russia and the payment systems are all setup for Russian Rubles currency. Never-the-less, if you are after a bargain then this is a phenomenal deal, not to be missed.

Intelligent Wholesale has a rare treat of some, never-before used control boards compatible with SandenVendo machines! They can be quickly reset to factory default settings and reprogrammed via a USB key. Here at Intelligent Wholesale we are very excited about having this cool piece of kit available, but we are sure we won’t have them for long now that the world knows about it! To see a list of machines they are compatible with follow our helpful little link above.

Duracell, there’s no need for an introduction

Duracell must be one of the all-time winners when it comes to household names. Everyone knows who they are and what they do. Well here, at Intelligent Wholesale, we have them.

Renowned for their dependability and long-life these batteries are specifically labelled and packaged for end users and distributors in the professional and industrial market place. These are manufactured to the same high standard as the famous ‘copper and black’ Duracell Plus batteries. INDUSTRIAL batteries are not available in any high street store

Bundle of Laundry

MRSA, SARS BCNU

The Bactokill Air Steriliser has been designed and developed to destroy airborne bacteria and viruses! It has low running costs, has twin speed fan for versatility and as it works it controls the dwell time of air passing through the chamber and over the UVC lamps. It is during this dwell time that the bacteria, moulds and viruses are virtually eliminated! Goodbye you nasty things, be seeing you! (BCNU!)

The Bactokill is also used in destroying, not masking, stubborn malodours in areas such as nursing homes or changing rooms. The versatile nature of the product allows it to be situated in a variety of locations including hospitals, surgeries, waiting rooms, food preparation areas, hospitality environments, homes and offices. This air steriliser even has a fragrance dispensing feature (optional) which could dramatically improve the hygiene and freshness of a space with a selection of delicate scents. TYVM.

Intelligent Vending® Next Generation Automated Retail Solutions…

The vending industry has been in a state of inertia for many years, and while there has been a recognition of the need to change, vending technology remains largely based on that which existed in the 20th Century. The pace of development and the introduction of innovation compare very unfavourably to what has happened in the gaming and kiosk industries, where advances in technology are pounced upon quickly and incorporated into new machines.

A typical example is the recent introduction of credit/debit card & NFC mobile payment solutions which are just breaking though into our market, but are well established elsewhere. With only a very limited number of off-the-shelf solutions currently available for standard vending applications, it is extremely difficult to benchmark products and ensure hardware has the appropriate certification and approvals – even for the largest multi-nationals. Adverse factors (from a vending perspective!) such as the move towards healthy eating and the global recession have created massive financial pressures for traditional vending companies.

There is acceptance that vending needs to progress in order to meet the requirements of the times – in terms of interactivity with the customer and changing the vend activity from functional to rewarding. One of our corporate customers summed this up brilliantly by describing what was traditionally on offer from mainstream vending as ‘boring, dull & outdated’.

As a company, we have always innovated and looked into the future. In terms of products, we have regularly configured vending machines to dispense items that were not thought possible, and we have installed systems into machines that are way beyond what conventional machines were designed to do. On many occasions, however, the limitations of existing vending technology have proved a barrier to delivering exactly to the specification that our clients have required without significant R&D investment and major adaptation to current systems, protocols, and mechanical design. Our expert specialists in the field of software development, SolidWorks, high-end fabrication, electronics, and system architecture are here to help and can resolve many headaches, but they are still invariably frustrated by the inherent limitations of traditional vending platforms.

For example; the advanced hotel system such as Max-eBar® is already replacing traditional minibar provision in hotels, and saving our clients’ money while increasing revenue. This is a very creative solution to a thorny practical problem, but development of innovative systems such as this are often influenced by the inflexibility and limitations of existing vending machines and technology.

Significantly, and very positively, we are now moving to a position where the barriers described above are being overcome, with new system alternatives gradually entering the market, most commonly to date in the premium hot drinks vending arena.

Intelligent Vending intends to be a major contributor to this transformation, and together with our close technology and supply chain partners, we are looking forward to bringing new opportunities and revenue streams to our customers.

We’re sure to be communicating further information regarding this shortly…
