CandyMachines.com, a leading manufacturer of bulk vending and claw machines based in Midvale, Utah, has acquired the SmartClaw app, a revolutionary management tool for arcade operators. The app is a product of PixPro Media, which is owned by Joel Wenz, a claw machine operator.
"We're thrilled to bring SmartClaw under the CandyMachines.com umbrella and to continue working with Joel and his team to implement our shared vision and roadmap," Kevin Johnson, COO of CandyMachines.com, said in the announcement. "Our mission has always been to provide top-tier equipment and tools to our operators, enabling them to maximize profits and optimize their operations. Whether it's integrating existing payment systems like Nayax, or making SmartClaw an extension of our equipment, this acquisition marks a significant step forward in that direction."
Wenz added in the announcement: "I couldn’t be more excited for SmartClaw to join forces with CandyMachines.com. Their commitment to innovation and quality perfectly aligns with the goals we’ve set for SmartClaw. This is a win-win situation for all involved, especially the operators who will benefit from enhanced tools and capabilities."
SmartClaw is available on both iOS and Android platforms and provides claw machine and arcade operators with invaluable insights into their businesses with minimal effort. The app includes various features like a dynamic Commission Calculator, tracking capabilities for both claw and bulk vending machines, and simplified payment tracking systems.
"We’re committed to leveraging SmartClaw’s capabilities to complement our existing products, making it a true extension of our equipment," Johnson added in the announcement. "Our aim is to develop integrated solutions that simplify collections and provide greater insights into operations, allowing our operators to scale more efficiently."
