SandenVendo Announces Integrated Swipe and vīv Mobile Cashless Capabilities

Sept. 22, 2020

SandenVendo's partnership with Vagabond has addressed operator and consumer demand for touchless payment options.  

Dallas TX, September 22nd, 2020 - SandenVendo America, a leader in vending machine manufacturing, has announced their V21 machine models now support dual cashless payment capabilities. The ability for SandenVendo machines to support two cashless devices means that operators can promote health and wellness as consumers continue to opt for #TrulyTouchless selection and payment methods at an increasing rate across all unattended retail sale points.

Vice President of Sales & Marketing at SandenVendo America, Joseph Lavook commented, “Now that our machines have dual cashless capabilities we can provide our customers and partners with a way to offer touchless selection and payment options to their accounts without the fear of missing out on traditional swipe, cash and coin sales. We’re proud to be the first major beverage machine manufacturer to enable dual cashless capabilities.”

SandenVendo’s partnership with Vagabond, a leader in modernizing the vending industry, helped address an influx of demand from operators and accounts for Vagabond’s #TrulyTouchless payments platform on beverage machines, which historically have been limited to a single cashless payment device. Installing vīv touchless mobile payment capabilities alongside a traditional credit card reader provides a touchless payment option without impacting the vending operation.

In addition to SandenVendo’s commitment to supporting a clean, safe and #TrulyTouchless purchasing experience, their dual cashless offering facilitates the entire spectrum of vīv’s benefits. Adding vīv increases revenues because the populations of people who prefer either payment method are slightly different. Millennial and Generation Z consumers, who make up well more than half the US workforce, prefer to use cashless mobile apps because they are faster, more secure and already a part of daily life as they order lunch, taxis, or movie tickets.

Further, the addition of vīv helps operators create loyalty with consumers, enables remote price changing, dynamic pricing to boost sales during slow periods, vīv enabled product rebates, and comprehensive consumer engagement -- by knowing who is buying what, operators can invite consumers back and begin to optimize planograms to promote high-margin products based on individual preferences.
