The next generation of automated vending machines are gradually being found in many of the shopping centers, retail stores, fast food restaurants, public transportation areas, and airports providing customers with new shopping experience brought by advanced technologies. These machines are equipped with 7"/10"/15"/17" single or dual digital touch displays, credit card terminals, receipt printers and bill acceptors allowing versatile payment options as well as offering wider ranges of merchandise for customers to choose from. Many of the traditional beverage vending machines have been transformed from a traditional soda dispenser to an interactive digital signage kiosk with enhanced features such as branding exposure, social media, and building customer relationships for marketing purposes. Some of the high-end models use a built-in camera and live facial analysis technology, enabling advertisers to deliver creative content of suitable targeted shoppers based on the analysis. The new technology helps to expand the sales market of the vending machine industry.
In addition to beverage devices, many other global iconic brands from multiple industries including skin care, cosmetic, education software, and consumer electronics have joined to utilize this state of the art selling platform. The future of the automated vending machines look promising.
