MALVERN, PA -- USA Technologies Inc. said it is working to connect 1,800 of VendPro Refreshment Services' vending machines and micromarkets to its ePort Interactive content-delivery and payments platform. This marks USAT's largest order to date since its acquisition of VendScreen earlier this year.
VendPro will now have access to USAT's cloud-based interactive media and content-delivery management system, enabling the display of nutritional information, issuance of remote refunds and initiation of multimedia-marketing campaigns, among other consumer-facing features. The deployment will allow Irving, TX-based VendPro to track the acceptance of cash, credit or debit cards, and mobile payments using Android Pay and Apple Pay.
The company has also signed up for USAT's Go Cashless program, an educational, point-of-sale marketing program designed to help operators roll out cashless transaction technology and accelerate consumer adoption.
VendPro operates 25 vending, coffee and micromarket routes that service more than 3,000 machines.
