People with little time and an accelerated lifestyle increasingly choose to eat between meals and away from home, so snacks are increasing and now account for almost 50% of meals *. The growing demand for snacks in the vending channel clashes with the low variety and lack of supply of healthy and fresh products in this channel. In this context, ZUMEX®, a strategic partner of global reference for the development of the juice business, leads the offer of the healthy vending market with its new cashless smart machines, under the Healthy-to-go concept.
The company has renewed its line of vending equipment with the launch of Natural Vending, a generation of new intelligent, healthy, and transparent machines that offer a simple, fresh, and healthy alternative to consumers that are more conscious and companies that are more committed with healthy eating.
Natural Vending is the evolution of the firm's high-performance automatic machines, designed with cutting-edge technology. The new intelligent vending machines incorporate the latest advances in both telemetry and cashless payment formulas; and, in addition, they incorporate a programmable cleaning system and a more transparent exterior design, which make their maintenance and management much more comfortable.
Total remote control for optimal management of the vending business
ZUMEX® Natural Vending machines incorporate a new Telemetry Kit that guarantees operators can control their machines remotely via a mobile app; through the centralized control panel that improves the visualization of key business data such as:
· A single user can easily manage all the machines, in any country.
· Collecting updated information with real time sales data and profitability, as well as generated sales reports.
· Managing customized alerts to provide an immediate response capacity.
· Indicating the status of transactions and the type of means of payment (wallet, change, and cashless).
In addition, the new Natural Vending machines have a new cleaning system that is programmable in time or by number of juices, without the need for water intake. Likewise, the ZUMEX® vending machines improve serving the juice through a new more intuitive display that allows customers to serve the juice based on the number of oranges used or by a precise system of filling the cup that allows serving an exact amount of juice.
In short, these important innovations reinforce the remote supervision of all the functions of the machines with detailed information. The automatic planning of service routes, the analysis of profitability and the 80% reduction in the time out of service are just some of the key results and benefits that represent a differential value for both the distributors and the final customer; which allows improving the levels of profitability, maintenance, and user satisfaction.
