Through USAT's Jump Start program, USG vending operators can install USAT's ePort cashless payment and wireless telemetry solution with no upfront capital costs.
The technology accepts credit and debit cards, along with other cashless payments, like USG's Sprout prepaid loyalty card. USAT will also provide wireless telemetry services that enable USG members to optimize their route scheduling and preload their trucks.
USG is a buying consortium of over 700 vending companies managing more than 500,000 vending machines that reportedly generate more than $3 billion in annual sales. In May, members of the Vend Marketing Institute, based in Louisville, KY, joined Arlington Heights, IL-based USG. | SEE STORY
USAT's ePort cashless payment system is supported by the company's ePort Connect -- a PCI-compliant, end-to-end suite for processing cashless payments and enabling telemetry services.
