Vagabond's vīv touchless payments platform is available on all new machines and as a retrofit for machines in the field.  

Dallas TX, June 23rd, 2020 - As workplaces consider how to safely reopen in the current health environment, world-leading vending manufacturer SandenVendo America, has announced the availability of integrated #TrulyTouchless capabilities on their machines through their partnership with Vagabond, a leading technology provider working to modernize convenience services.

SandenVendo now offers the vīv touchless, cashless technology solution as an option on all new machines as well as a retrofit for machines already in the field. The availability of Vagabond's vīv touchless payments platform demonstrates SandenVendo’s commitment to providing safe and secure solutions to operators, accounts and consumers to ensure vending machines continue to be a reliable source of nutrition for workers by eliminating the need to touch the machine.

As people return to work, they are more cautious about how they interact with their workplace environment. Many employers have expressed interest in workplace solutions that reduce all physical interactions with publicly available surfaces and spaces, including self-checkout kiosks and vending equipment. SandenVendo’s new touchless capabilities, powered by vīv, enable operators and accounts to offer SandenVendo’s dependable equipment solutions with a secure and exciting touchless purchase experience that is safer for consumers.

Joseph Lavook, VP of Sales & Marketing at SandenVendo said, “We’re excited to work with the Vagabond team on forward-thinking solutions to problems our customers are facing in the market. vīv-enabled SandenVendo machines are a great solution for operators and workplaces looking to provide consumers with equipment that reduces their anxieties related to interacting with public surfaces. We look forward to working with our many partners to supply equipment that provides a high degree of confidence in our secure and health conscious offerings.”

“We are working with campuses and workplaces across the country whose staff are concerned with physical interactions with their environment upon returning to work, including their vending machines and breakroom markets,” stated Scott Meskin, President at Vagabond. He continued, “We are very proud to partner with SandenVendo to supply a touchless payments solution to workplaces that already rely on their vendors, while also reducing cost for operators, enabling direct consumer marketing as well as remote, two-tier, and dynamic pricing.”
