Stationery Vending Machines

Schools, colleges and universities are prime, though not the only, sites for vending machines that provide stationery and related materials. Stationery Vending machines deal with the problem of limited opening hours for shops on campus, and they can help to reduce overall staffing costs. Also many colleges, universities and even schools have a number of sites some distance apart, and while it would not be economic to provide a manned retail point at each of these sites, it could be economically viable to install vending machines.

Vending machines have been tested with a wide range of stationery products and can operate well whether they are required to deliver one or two standard items or a wide range of products. Ideally products should be smaller than A4 size so space in the machine is optimised. A degree of rigidity is also important although this can normally be overcome through selection of a different item performing the same function, with some repackaging, or attaching some stiffening mechanism.

Although the priority for educational institutions may be to provide a service for students, vending machines provide an opportunity to gain some income from the transaction, particularly in self managed machines where products are bought at wholesale and sold at recommended retail prices or, if desired, with a degree of subsidy. Alternatively, where the institution has a procurement contract with a particular supplier, the school or college could receive a royalty or rental payment from the provider.

Intelligent Vending has considerable expertise in the area of stationery vending, and is well placed to advise customers regarding different applications and products that work well within an educational environment. We can also advise regarding other locations, for example in public and commercial areas.
