Operators can use VendMAX Dynamic to schedule some or all of their machines on an open schedule (any day) or based on their current set schedule. VendMAX Dynamic schedules machines based on a range of parameters, such as number of sellouts, percent depletion, amount of money in the machine, and the number of days since the last service.
VendMAX 4.1 enhancements enable automatic backups and faster synching times. A new feature allows the handheld to automatically try synching under poor network conditions until it gets a connection. If the handheld is unable to reliably connect, it will keep trying until one is achieved. Call 800-478-7326; www.streamware.com.
