10 inch Semi Rugged Tablet Intel Atom Z3735G Quad Core

Case Story:

Company A develops commercial coffee vending solutions. They are modernizing and revitalizing their system by replacing their traditional mechanical interface and single color display with a digital touch screen. The new machine is expected to accommodate a wider range of product options and higher value specialty drinks, both hot and iced, in addition to the typical coffee or cocoa, strong or light, sugar or cream, merchandise selections.   These new vending machines will be placed in public areas such as work place break rooms, public cafeterias, auto dealer waiting rooms,  hotel lobbies, shopping centers, train stations, airports, and other public venues. This next generation automated vending machine offers customers vivid images of the various product options along with a user-friendly P-CAP touch interface similar to the customers’ tablets or smartphones making purchases a simple and pleasant experience.  For the vendor, adding this technology to their machines may help to expand same-store sales by delivering meaningful and attractive product information and providing a platform for delivering promotional content on the screens.
