"Much of our work during the third quarter also related to the formation of agreements and development to facilitate introduction of our new value-add services that we anticipate will extend USAT's differentiation in the marketplace, as well as our next generation ePort G9 and G10, designed to deliver greater value and improved functionality to our customers while reducing the capital required by USAT for our JumpStart program,” he continued. “For example, we believe our mobile payment and loyalty promotion with Isis is the largest offering of its kind ever introduced to the U.S. vending market. Isis' interest in loyalty is spot on with our own initiatives in this area that include an expanded services suite formed around loyalty that is tailored to the individual business operator. “
"In summary, there are numerous developments that we believe will continue to attract consumers to cashless forms of payment, including mobile payment, loyalty, couponing and other consumer engagement applications," said Herbert. "We have accumulated a base of 4,525 ePort Connect customers that we will continue to work closely with in this very transformative time in the unattended, small-ticket market. Through products and service enhancements, our goal is to improve customer ROI on all levels, which should continue to help boost the rate of cashless adoption, and USAT's continued leadership in this emerging market," concluded Herbert.
