TROY, MI -- 365 Retail Markets' 365 Inside device is now compatible with Azkoyen coffee machines, bringing simple, cost-effective cashless payments into the OCS space.

Consumers will now be able to purchase coffee at an Azkoyen coffee machine fitted with a 365 Inside using the 365Pay mobile app; subsequently, operators can get real-time reporting on their machine's sales, profitability analysis and refill status.

365 Inside is a plug-and-play device that plugs directly into vending machines. It utilizes a Bluetooth connection to the 365Pay mobile app, delivering a streamlined way to make purchases and manage accounts.

"Having 365 Inside work with Azkoyen coffee machines is a perfect match," said 365 Retail Markets director of software development, Chad Francis. 365 Inside devices work as an integral part of the 365 Connected Campus by allowing Azkoyen coffee machines to now become part of those campuses. This will allow the thousands and thousands of users to purchase their drinks through the 365Pay app at their convenience."

Azkoyen's Vitro S5 model holds a high-capacity supply of ground coffee, in addition to milk, chocolate and instant coffee and tea, to meet the demands of locations such as hotel breakfast buffets, corporate breakrooms and other large groups. Made of metal, stainless steel, and smoked graphite glass, the machine is designed to be visually appealing in any environment as well as durable and reliable.

"I believe that we can help each other achieve our individual goals while working together to help our customers grow their businesses," said Azkoyen USA national account manager Si Rawls.

Azkoyen USA, based in Charlotte, NC, is the newest addition to the Spain-based Azkoyen Group, an international leader in the OCS and Horeca channels for automatic espresso and coffee machines.
