Vending Operations: It’s What’s on the Inside that Counts / The Future of Vending

Artificial intelligence tools can significantly improve the efficiency of a vending operation. This is especially critical in the perishable food segment, which is the most important for winning big accounts but also the least profitable segment. AI allows operators to utilize data such as demographic information to tailor the machine menus to the specific location. Coupled with remote-machine monitoring, the technology enables the operation to service the machines at the most opportune times, enhancing efficiency and improving customer experience.
