SCOTTSDALE, AZ -- Apriva reports that its Apriva Vend cashless payment system has been chosen for integration into the Just Squeezed fresh orange juice venders operated by Orange Life LLC (Renton, WA) at locations across the Just Squeezed network. The system is expected to begin rolling out later this year.
The Just Squeezed machine, manufactured in Italy and popular in Europe, is bulk-loaded with oranges and prepares a portion of freshly squeezed juice when a vend is initiated; a window in the front allows the patron to watch the process. Orange Life operates the venders in a number of locations across the country, including hospitals, office buildings, schools and retail sites.
"We looked at many options for integrating cashless technology into our business, and Apriva Vend offered the most flexibility and reliability by far," explained Dmitry Churilov, managing director for Just Squeezed. "Other providers required that we use their financial institutions, which would have forced us into a subservient role where we'd have to wait days for settlements. Apriva Vend gives us the freedom to use our existing banking relationships to process cashless sales. This flexibility not only improves cashflow and simplifies operations, it gives us the ability to retain control of our business."
Apriva Vend is an end-to-end service that supplies all the necessary hardware, software, payment processing technologies, carrier services, and backend systems to its vending operator customers.
