SAN DIEGO, CA -- Fresh Healthy Vending said it is now offering franchisees of its "healthy" vending program a high-tech vending machine. The interactive vender features a large touchscreen that functions as a product selection panel. Operators have access to a product database containing thousands of 2D and 3D product images and nutritional information to display on the screen.
The machine uses the VE Connect door, which is supplied with a 46" 1080p high-definition video display that presents animatable product images in brilliant color, and which can support many other uses ranging from information display and advertising to games and social interaction. Made by Cleveland's Vendors Exchanger International Inc., VE Connect integrates a camera and a QR code reader to support customer-engagement programs.
The healthy vending company said its new machine shows targeted video content with audio and display graphics or signage, along with a feed from either Facebook or Twitter on a revolving social media banner. Interactive games and prize giveaways can also be set up to encourage repeat use.
Additionally, anonymous facial-recognition technology can interpret buying patterns and suggest purchases. A voice-recognition feature and QR code integration for smartphone messaging add to the machine's interactive capabilities.
