The most influential technology to come to the vending industry in decades, iVend™, allows your vending machines to keep providing your customers with the products they want without hang-ups.

What We Offer:

  • Commissions

  • Vending machines can be profitable for you and your employees by receiving monthly commissions. Ask about how we can customize a commission program for you.
  • Tokens

  • An excellent way to recognize your employees & customers is by providing them with tokens they can redeem for free products, at no charge to you.
  • Subsidized Vending

  • This is a great way to share the cost of the vended products with your employees & customers. Products are tracked by internal vending meters & regular machine inventories are performed which are then downloaded using hand-held computer devices to ensure accurate reporting. Monthly invoices show in detail what products were purchased in addition to the subsidized balance owed.

How it works:

iVend™ is an infra-red light sensing unit consisting of a light emitter and receiver mounted on each side of the delivery box. During the first vend cycle, if a product is not sensed by a beam of the iVend™ system, the system waits one second then initiates a second vend cycle and rotates the helix until the product is sensed as dropped.

If a product is still not sensed as dropped by the iVend™ system after a full rotation to the home position, the selection will be considered empty or sold out. The customer's credit will be restored and will allow another selection to be made. The selection is then automatically reinstated for future vends.

Your customer is always satisfied.

Cashless Payment

We accept credit cards, debit cards, and other forms of cashless payments. Complete cashless system includes alternative hardware to meet all equipment and connectivity requirements between machine and your business.

Customer Service is available for you and your customers 24/7.
