Second Hand Snakky

Here at Intelligent Vending we are inundated with requests for second hand or refurbished snack and drink machines.

As a rule, these are very difficult to come by and as such, we run a waiting lists for specific machines- especially considering the high demand from our export partners. However, seeings as its Christmas and we’re feeling festive, we’ve now decided to put 10 machines on to the website which are available on a first come, first served basis. The machine which is available is the popular Snakky RY 6-30 machine which is great if you’re limited space wise as it’s a lovely compact machine.

These machines are second hand, and around 5 years old. They are in great condition and also come with a second hand coin mechanism and delivery for the bargain price of £1313. Not only that…. but, we are even offering maintenance agreements at standard new machine rates as we are so confident in their condition!

Give us a call as we do not want anyone to miss out on this fantastic offer!

And also, don’t forget we are running the amazing price slash promotion this week (untill 20th December)

No shirt, no shoes…

Left the house without your Tee shirt? Gone out for lunch and spilt ketchup down yourself? Has your children run through a water fountain and come out the other side soaking wet through?

Well now thanks to Coinstar (you know – the machine in the supermarkets you throw all the change you’ve had sitting round the house into so you don’t have to count it and take it to the bank) and online tee shirt store Threadless, should any of these predicaments happen to you whilst out and about in Chicago, USA where the machines are in trials in malls, you’re not going to be caught short, nor are you any longer going to have to venture into a store and deal with a sales assistant who will probably just stare at your new ketchup’d tee shirt.

Now, thanks to the Threadless machine you can slide on up to it, pop in your money and pull out a super cool tee shirt before anybody realises how clumsy you are!

Alongside tee shirts printed with the designs currently available on Threadless’ website, there is also the option to purchase tote bags, onesis, hot water bottles and hoodies.

“E-Commerce” is looking like it will become a huge player in the retail market in the not too distant future. As QR codes become more popular, companies are going to see more and more the benefit of having an automated vending machine rather than floods of staff who either mooch around looking sullen and that they can think of a million places they would rather be, or jump and of the shadows and terrify the customers (I’m looking at you, Hollister) not only will it save money on staff costs, but also adds more of a novelty for consumers, a machine they haven’t seen before catches their eye, they buy a great quality product at it, potentially cheaper than its equivalent in a shop (in line with online prices) and without the hassle of queuing, listening to awful, too loud music etc.

We can see this be coming a massive trend throughout the retail market. Have you ever considered vending your product in a similar machine? Let us know in the comments below! And, as ever, if you have any questions regarding what you can and cannot vend, or how we can help you reach your dream of vending your product do not hesitate to get in touch!

 

Ahhh, Alcohol.

A bar in New York City’s Meatpacking district has launched an interesting new way of getting a drink during busy periods. Instead of waiting for your bartender to make, shake and serve you a cocktail, whiskey or wine, you can now simply take your glass to a vending machine (or Enomatic machine as this bar calls them) for a top up.

These machines keep the drink at the optimum temperature, just as they would behind the bar and all you have to do is push a button and place your glass!

Big leather couches and a (potentially) fab atmosphere. This is all in Samantha’s (SATC) neighbourhood, but how would the machine cater to specific requests – especially when it comes to whiskey customers can be very picky if there is too much/not enough ice in their glass.

What do you think? Would you rather go into a bar and not have to put up with bartenders? Not have to worry about how much tip you should give or how much they will take upon a “take you’re own love”? Or do you quite like the human interaction and being able to have your drink made exactly to your requirments?

I missed you so!

Now this is clever! Ever wanted to greet (or be greeted by) your nearest and dearest with a banner expressing how much you missed them? Hours to prepare a banner of epic proportions from a bed sheet is not something most people have the time to do these days so the clever people over at Amsterdam’s Schiphol airport have installed a ‘bannerXpress’ vending machine. Through this machine, you can design your own banner and print it off on canvas in just a matter of minutes, costing between 4 and 15 Euros.

The banners are waterproof and should therefore last a few trips to the airport should your other half be a frequent traveller and you want to act out ‘Love Actually’! The company behind the machines are looking to expand into concert arenas and sports grounds – so you’ll never be far from the opportunity to make an I <3 Justin Bieber banners – along with other airports.

Personally, I think this is a lovely idea. How many times have you been picked up at the airport and heard “oh, I was going to make a banner but I didn’t have time”?! Well, now there is no excuse thanks to this nifty machine! The machine launched yesterday, if you happen to be flying into (or out of) Shriphol Airport let us know if you see – or use- the machine. I’d love to know what the banners actually turn out like!

 

Happy Friday!

A happy customer

A recent testimonial from a happy customer regarding the work Sam Roe, our Strategic Director has been involved in at Derby University with regards to a customised vending solution.

“I have had the pleasure of working closely with Sam Roe over the last 6 months or so, developing a different vending offer for our students. Sam has been extremely generous with his time and always gave sound advice on which products to stock and where to put them in the machines to get the best return.

Sam is passionate about his work, sometimes even obsessive, but always a true professional. I have no problem recommending Sam and his company for any vending needs you may require.”

Game while you guzzle?

Coca-Cola in Japan is modifying many of its vending machines to make them far more interactive with users. This is the next stage in Coca-Cola’s ‘Happiness’ campaign and will promote  brand loyalty for Coke customers.  The addition of QR codes onto machines mean that customers can interactive with the machine and create it a virtual identity, allowing customers to think of a machine they frequently visit as “my machine.”

Checking in at the machine will earn users badges and points, which can be spent customising “their” machine with things like skins, shoes and backgrounds.  The more a customer interacts with a machine, the more personalised its response will be, sending information such as brand updates and news and weather. Also available will be a badge to show that a user has visited machines through out the country – not an easy feat at all, but one no doubt hardcore game and Coke fans will be excited to try and achieve!

Registration for the so-called “Happiness Quest” opens next week, with an added promotional incentive – a one million yen prize which is sure to make it very popular.

This is sure to be a success for Coca-Cola if not just by their sheer presence in the vending world in Japan – by the end of March 2012, they are hoping to have 820,000 machines with QR codes on- but because everyone loves a game, and rather than tweeting “I’m using a vending machine” customers can now scan the QR code and play a quick game as they wait for the bottle of coke to vend. Exciting stuff!
