MALVERNE, PA -- A new Verizon Wireless television commercial demonstrates the new face of vending made possible by wireless telemetry.

In the commercial, young Susie's lemonade business expands into a high-tech vending operation that leverages USA Technologies' ePort cashless payment and telemetry system, which is spotlighted close up. The 34-second television spot goes on to demonstrate how remote monitoring of sales data and automatic alerts help Susie keep her machines stocked and her customers happy. It is now airing nationwide on ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, FOX News, CNN and MSNBC.

Verizon Wireless and USA Technologies Inc. announced in April a collaborative effort to accelerate the adoption of wireless small-ticket cashless payment capability and "machine-to-machine" applications through USAT's ePort Connect service. USAT solutions now include the Verizon Wireless network for connectivity that enables credit- and debit-card payments through vending machines. | SEE STORY
