MALVERN, PA -- USA Technologies Inc. said it has added Rawls Distributing Co., a Canteen franchisee, to its growing list of ePort Connect customers committing to a fully connected operation.

As part of the agreement, USAT will provide cashless and telemetry services that enable and track the acceptance of cash at most machines, along with credit/debit cards, and such mobile wallet payments as Android Pay and Apple Pay through its NFC-capable system.

Established in 1985, Rawls Distributing Co. is one of the largest vending service providers in Savannah, GA. The company worked closely with USAT to enable half of its machines with early versions of USAT's ePort, called Edge ePort, in 2011.

At only 50% deployment, cashless usage on Rawls' vending routes is already up to 33%, accompanied by greater volume and higher profit margins, Rawls Distribution president Robin Rawls reported.
