Advanced telemetry is an essential feature
The breakdown rate of an automated vending machine often depends on where it is located and the kind of people who use it. However, it is not always due to misuse by unruly or irate customers that may result in any breakdown of the vending machine. Many a time, it is due to poor integration of software or telemetry in the network of machines that result in such issues. Vending machines remain unattended across a vast network spread over a large area and function with the help of advanced telemetry that requires very good integration.

Packaging of products impact vending machines
Emerging trends in packaging are quite difficult to visualize as brands keep changing their packaging designs on the basis of market feedback as well as their own strategic needs. The functioning of a vending machine is considerably influenced by the packaging design of the products it vends. This depends on how the hardware in the machine copes with the different dimensions and weight categories of the products that are vended. Universal vending solutions from Limitless Mobility can create optimum solutions for several packaging dimensions and types.
There’s a lot more that vending machines can do in addition to vending out products that consumers want. For instance, they can offer an additional source of revenue through advertisements that can be displayed on a display screen mounted close to the customer interface of the vending machine.
