We want people to feel safe using vending machines and also have the best user experience”.

Key highlights of Renetec’s new product:

● Hygienic​. No need to press any buttons on the vending machine, selection of products is done on the phone.

●  Easy to use​. The only solution on the market that does not require additional app installation and registration.
