Solutions Vending International (SVI) ) is an automated retailing technology company. Our experienced team of engineers and developers have designed a software solution to make vending machines intelligent through consumer data and analytics. We work with consumer retail brands, vending machine manufacturers, and vending machine operators help them learn more about their customers. We offer them a unique value proposition that is not available to them, customer data, sales conversion rates, and the ability for customers to create accounts and engage with their machines like never before.
SVI IS THE IoT OF VENDING
Smart vending machines now represent a new breed of machines connected to the internet. Our software helps vending machines not only understand retail customer demographic and sales data, but communicate with one another to understand consumer purchasing behavior, identify venue traffic patterns, and establish a network of connected retail devices. SVI is building a network of connected machines to securely collect and analyze data about consumers and venues across the United States.
Automated retailing is on the rise. In an age of iPads, high-speed Internet service, A.T.M.’s and self check-in at airports, consumers expect instant gratification. Not only are they accustomed to researching and buying products on their own by touching screens and pressing buttons, they often prefer it.
Changing consumer preferences about shopping and the high cost of operating brick-and-mortar stores are inspiring companies to rethink how they sell their products.
Vending machines do not collect sufficient data from or about their customers. Vending machine operators have limited insight on who their customers are and this results in missed sales opportunities. Only 7% of vending machines in the U.S. are ‘intelligent’ (wifi connected, can accept credit card payments and/or monitor inventory remotely); even fewer machines have touch screen capabilities; most importantly traditional machines offer no option to track and monitor how much traffic your ‘store’ receives and your conversion rate based on people passing by.
SVI combines our software solution with point of sale data to generate customer demographic data in order to increase sales. Our software can easily be integrated into new vending machines or retrofit existing machines to make them smarter. Connect to wifi, monitor inventory, capture sales data, customer demographic information, venue traffic pattern data, customer engagement and emotions at the point of sale, and allow for lead generation and advertising are only a few of the features we offer. Our technology can track and count the number of people that pass your ‘store’ to determine your actual sales conversion rates per location.
