These machines are distributed across locations such as factories and schools. Prior to partnering with us, their vending machine portfolio primarily consisted of beverage and snack machines.

They also want a vending solution that not only boosts brand exposure but also provides direct access to valuable consumer data.




The AI Smart Vending Machine is priced 60%+ lower than beverage machines and 30%+ lower than snack machines. (The client purchased dual-door machine, with even greater cost reductions for single-door machine.)

High Loading Capacity

Optimized space utilization and larger space allow for a greater quantity of products to be displayed.

This machine can vend a variety of products, not only beverages but also a more extensive range of packaged foods. Previous machines were limited in their selection, whether due to vending restrictions or the focus on a single product category.
