Apriva announced that it will participate in the Atlantic Coast Exposition (ACE), scheduled for Oct. 4 to 6 at the Embassy Suites Kingston Plantation in Myrtle Beach, S.C. Throughout the event, Apriva will display its Apriva Vend™ cashless payments solution, which enables vending operators to integrate cashless vending technology into their operations. Apriva will be located at booth number 300 on the exhibition floor.
"ACE is a high-profile event that gives Apriva an outstanding opportunity to demonstrate the significant value that Apriva Vend provides vending operators," said Rinaldo Spinella, Apriva's executive vice president and general manager for unattended solutions, in a prepared statement. "As more and more operators explore the possibilities of integrating cashless payments technology into their businesses, we are confident that the reliability, simplicity and security of Apriva Vend will be particularly compelling to this market."
An end-to-end solution, Apriva Vend gives vending operators the ability to cost-effectively integrate cashless vending into their operations. Through this solution, operators have the ability to substantially improve customer satisfaction, increase operational efficiency and expand sales and profit margins. Apriva Vend's comprehensive service incorporates system hardware and software, wireless connectivity, transaction and alarm reporting capabilities, and integration with leading payment processors and financial institutions.
According to Spinella, the rising interest in cashless solutions is the direct result of operators looking to break out of a commoditized sales cycle.
"For years, vending operators have been hampered by flat sales and tight margins," he explained. "Those operators that have already implemented cashless technology are reporting remarkable results in terms of increased sales, wider margins, and lower operating costs. This level of success is serving as a catalyst for motivating other operators to seriously consider cashless vending as a viable solution for improving business performance."
