Don’t you just hate it when that candy bar dispenser is smarter than you are? Especially when it nags you about the excess calories stuffed inside that tempting Snickers bar? That’s a bit of an exaggeration of course, at least for now. But modern vending machines are increasingly equipped with smart Machine-to-Machine technology that does things like report attempts by hooligans to shake loose a tasty snack and alert vendors when the stock of Snickers bars is running low.
Telemetry is a priority for operators because it makes it easier to manage machines in the field. In support of telemetry, our Vending Machine solution VMHero can communicate and be managed over any of the wireless networks supported by our M2M Sims.
Our VMHero helps turn these needs into realities. Vending is a billion dollar industry. As of 2015, there are 35.2 million units globally. Of those, only 1.2 million of them are network connected, and that number is growing by up to 50% annually. Our technology helps you be part of that growth.
