MALVERN, PA — USA Technologies Inc. has announced an expanded agreement with AVM Services, a vending, office coffee and water service company based in Audubon, PA. Under the pact, AVM has upgraded 1,100 machines with USAT's state-of-the-art ePort Connect cashless technology platform, and equipped them with Seed Pro and Seed Office. The operation also is making use of Seed Delivery at 2,000 office coffee services delivery points.

"Through the expanded partnership, AVM will benefit from the reliability and security of USAT's industry-leading ePort cashless payment system on its customers' machines," USAT explained. By harnessing the  power of USAT's patented, cloud-based vending intelligence solutions, the operation plans to optimize its business, increasing revenues while minimizing operating costs.

"We have built our business for generations based on introducing new products and services to our customers, and are recognized for our excellence in service and innovation," said AVM operations vice-president Larry McQuaid.

"We are well on our way to full implementation, and Terry Hovis and Greg Young from the USAT support team have done a tremendous job in supporting us through this effort," McQuaid reported.

AVM Services has also signed up for USAT's Premium Support Service offerings, providing access to USAT's bundle of support services including deployment planning, project management, installation support, training, and tools specific to the marketing cashless programs, as well as marketing support and consultation, mobile payment and loyalty programs and, in some cases, funding support.

"AVM's expanded agreement is a testament to the strength of the combined technologies of ePort Connect and the Seed Pro suite of solutions," said Maeve McKenna Duska, senior vice-president of  development at USA Technologies. "We are proud to help AVM continue the tradition of innovation and service with one of the most powerful, holistic enterprise platforms in the unattended retail market."

AVM Services is a second-generation family-owned business providing vending, office refreshment and water services to customers in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware.

USA Technologies is a pioneer in cashless micropayment solutions for unattended points of sale. The company introduced its first ePort cashless terminal to the vending industry at the National Automatic Merchandising Association's 2000 trade show. Since that debut, USAT has grown into a premier payment technology service provider of integrated cashless and mobile transactions in the self-service retail market. The company provides a broad line of cashless acceptance technologies including its NFC-ready ePort G-series, ePort Mobile for customers on the go, ePort Interactive, and QuickConnect, an API Web service for developers. Through its recent acquisition of Cantaloupe Systems, USAT also offers logistics, dynamic route scheduling, automated pre-kitting, responsive merchandising, inventory management, warehouse and accounting management solutions.
