VendNext announced that it has launched a VIP wait list on its Website. The company will launch its product in early spring and will be an exhibitor at the NAMA OneShow in Chicago which begins April 9, 2014.
Until recently, VendNext has had a teaser Website with a countdown clock and a form to sign-up for email updates. After the site received thousands of visits and email submissions from interested parties, the company decided to establish a wait list for its product in an effort to prioritize launch. There is a $99 charge to be on the VIP operator wait list. In return, VIP operators will be among the first to obtain the product at launch and receive a $250 credit towards any purchase.
Moreover, should the VIP operator not wish to participate after the product is revealed, the company will provide a refund of 110 percent of the fee.
Paresh Patel, founder of Courtesy Vending and VendScreen, said in a prepared statement, "VendNext is working on something very exciting. And it's all from the perspective of the operator. It's what operators need. We're so confident that operators will like what we have to offer, that we're willing to back it with a 110 percent refund guarantee. There is no risk for an operator to sign-up. I encourage operators to reserve their spot on our wait list to be among the first when we launch in the spring. We guarantee operators won't be disappointed."
Mark Stein, president of Mark Vend Co., remarked, "I am a big supporter of Patel because of the excitement and energy that he brings to the vending industry."
The VIP wait list is available only for operators of vending machines. Other interested parties and operators who prefer to wait and see may still sign up for no charge to receive email updates.
Steve Fischer, owner of Vend NW Distributing Co., said, "I've known Patel since his very first vending machines years ago. What he is doing with VendNext is simply remarkable. He really understands what operators need and he is innovating for them. I know my customers are really anticipating the launch."
