MALVERN, PA -- USA Technologies Inc. has expanded its JumpStart program to include a standalone wireless telemetry solution, allowing customers the flexibility to participate in the program for cashless payments, telemetry, or both.
The JumpStart program enables operators to implement USAT's payment and wireless telemetry solutions with no upfront capital cost or long-term commitment. Its VDI-compliant ePort wireless telemetry solution delivers real-time DEX data compatible with most leading vending management software systems.
The Malvern, PA, company was among the suppliers that collaborated with the National Automatic Merchandising Association to establish the VDI (Vending Data Interchange) standard to facilitate data sharing and interoperability among vending technology platforms and service suppliers.
The expanded JumpStart program enables operators to begin by putting their vending machines on ePort Connect for route management, with the ability to add USAT's cashless solution later without the need to replace hardware or contract with another service provider.
USAT's ePort Connect service platform enables customers to connect with most major route management systems, choose between among different card processors, and have the option to install USAT's cashless payments hardware or hardware from other hardware manufacturers.
