Automated Retail

Innovation isn’t a trend. It’s a necessity.

Intelligent Vending Transformation

Vending technology is evolving quickly and new or retrofitted machines are engaging shoppers like never before with touch-screen controls, video, audio, scent, gesture-based interaction and cashless payment. Intelligent vending machines also provide businesses real-time insights into their customers’ purchasing patterns. According to Persistence Market Research, the global intelligent vending machines market is expected to reach $15 billion by 2025, with a projected CAGR of more than 15 percent during the forecasted period. Despite the fast pace of anticipated growth, the industry is struggling to meet new market demands and consumer behavior. Low operating margins, a steady rise in rents, ROI concerns and high credit-card transaction fees have slowed adoption.
