July 15, 2020

Vengo Labs plans to deploy touchless technology to 1,400 retail, school, gym and transit locations across the U.S., starting with touchless PPE in the NYC metropolitan area.  

NEW YORK, July 15, 2020  -- Due to COVID-19, people have been forced to change the way they interact with their world virtually overnight. With the country reopening and people leaving their homes to go to the office, visit family, and travel -- personal safety has never been more top-of-mind. That’s why Vengo Labs, the leader in digital kiosk technology, today announced it will deploy touchless retail technology across its network of 1400 gym, school, retail and transit locations around the nation, beginning with the launch of touchless Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for NYC metropolitan commuters, tourists and travelers using the MTA, Metro-North and the Long Island Railroad (LIRR).

“We hear the needs of our clients and their consumers, and the future is touchless,” said Brian Shimmerlik, CEO for Vengo Labs. “Vengo connects brands and consumers in the places they go by offering safe and instant touchless access to the products and samples they need. We love NYC and it is an honor to help keep the city strong by bringing PPE to NYC subway commuters, tourists and travelers at this vital time. We look forward to providing the same positive experience that alleviates customer anxiety to shoppers, students, gym members and commuters nationwide.”

In response to brand and consumer demands driven by the COVID-19 pandemic, Vengo quickly adapted its connected software platform, adding new products and extending them onto mobile to enable the convenience and safety of touchless shopping and sampling everywhere. Through its signature red kiosks, Vengo is providing touchless shopping for PPE in MTA, MetroNorth and LIRR locations across NYC, Connecticut and Long Island. Travelers have the ability to purchase KN95 face masks, hand sanitizer packets and rubber gloves via their phone.
