July 9th, 2014 – Vagabond, a cloud-based mobile software and vending management solutions provider (VMS), and AirVend, a provider of innovative touchscreen technology to the vending industry, jointly announce the ability for operators to use both solutions in a streamlined manner. AirVend offers an Android OS-based interactive touchscreen point-of-sale device designed to enhance the consumer purchasing experience. Vagabond allows vending operators to more profitably manage their operations with the touch of a button, by enabling sales tracking in real time and by providing live fill status of every machine at any time.
The joint solution is available immediately. Vagabond customers can take advantage of using AirVend’s touchscreen devices by linking the AirVend units through their existing USA Technologies USA Live account. Chad Francis, AirVend CEO, explained “We’re happy to provide Vagabond as a VMS option to our customers. We look forward to growing our relationship with Vagabond and believe this is a great first step.”
Vagabond President, Juan Jorquera said, “our customer partners have demonstrated a desire to add touchscreen credit card devices to their Vagabond-enabled machines. With this partnership we continue to provide our customers with the tools they need to help grow their businesses.”
“Today’s vending operators are searching for new technologies and solutions that help them better manage their businesses, while providing for new ways to please their customers’ growing needs. We aim to provide just that to our operator partners as we continue to innovate,” said Michael Lovett, Vagabond CEO. “AirVend brings excitement to vending and brings visibility to end-consumers for their nutritional concerns and their increasing lack of cash on hand. The combined AirVend and Vagabond solution provides the industry with an important set of tools to meet these needs and succeed in every way.”
AirVend was founded in April 2012 for the express purpose of bringing affordable, advanced technology to the vending and unattended retail industries. The AirVend system is an interactive touchscreen device that displays nutritional information, provides cashless options and sends real-time data and alerts wirelessly, ensuring that Vending Operators reap the rewards they deserve.
