The high-tech Michigan company introduced several innovations at the National Automatic Merchandising Association's vending trade show this past spring. Among these is 365connect, software that allows both vending machines and unmanned markets to be managed by the same Vending Data Interchange (VDI) solution. Also new are low-cost mobile payment options, payroll deductions for stored-value accounts, layered promotions and enhanced security reports (to reduce fraud). The company's new mobile inventory app, with variance analysis, lets operators use a handheld scanner to simplify inventory reports; it compares expected quantities and sales from different dates against current stock.
