BERKELEY, CA -- LightSPEED Automation's innovative system for pre-kitting snacks and drinks is now fully integrated with Cantaloupe Systems' wireless remote monitoring platform, according to Cantaloupe officials.

LightSPEED accelerates the pre-kitting process by using light signals to direct the activities of pre-kit personnel. The system is said to ensure nearly 100% order accuracy and an average pre-kit speed of more than 5,500 units per hour, saving vending operators as much $100,000 per year in labor.

Cantaloupe's wireless remote monitoring system, known as SEED, provides vending operators with a suite of solutions to more efficiently run their vending businesses based on tracking real-time inventory data on each of their machines. Operators use this data to determine their overall product requirements and to prioritize their machines' restocking needs.

Pairing the LightSPEED pre-kitting enhancement with Cantaloupe's real-time data collection system can greatly improve the efficiency of warehouse operations, which sequentially improves the performance of routes and drivers.

Cantaloupe said LightSPEED's integration with its SEED technology is in the final phase of field testing, and will become commercially available at the upcoming NAMA National Expo in Chicago in September.

LightSPEED Automation can be reached at (888) 400- 5744; Cantaloupe Systems' phone number is (510) 647- 3785.
