Vensolutions

Filling levels, easy accounting, fault reporting, planning the refilling trips – with Vensolutions you always have your vending machines under control.

Connected Vending and Mobile Payment

The telemetry system Vensolutions offers you an effective and legally sound way for your vending machine operating and accounting. It offers controlling and remote diagnosis, simplifies check-up and maintenance of the machines on location and automates your route planning for the refilling trips. This is how vending becomes Connected Vending!



What can Vensolutions do for you as an operator?

With Vensolutions you can control and evaluate all sales, transactions and the vending machine status from your office computer in real time. It can also be connected to your existing ERP-system.

“Fiscal data read-out” is one of the growing trends and requirements in the vending industry. Vensolutions is the holistic approach for active controlling of your operating and service process in the field of vending and company catering.

Vensolutions also supports the planning of your refilling trips by suggesting optimized routes and considering your staffs working times. Let all these be a thing of the past: complicated and error-prone paper lists, long machine down time, unnecessary empty trips and other bad surprises while maintaining your vending machines.

Is there a large event planned in the area where your vending machines are located? Is it going to be extraordinarily hot in the coming days? This means you should be able to sell more cold drinks for example. Thanks to Vensolutions taking various factors into consideration, the predictions are getting constantly more precise. This way you can maximize your potential by planning the best locations and assortments for your vending machines and increase your profitability.

Vencube - the hardware

The Vencube is the heart of the product family and the central control unit inside your vending machine. It is positioned in the stable middle position between the vending machine controls and the payment system.

All money and product movements are monitored here in real time and sent to the Vensoft user platform. This way the status of the vending machine can be efficiently supervised at any time. Failures and disruptions can be fixed promptly or even avoided.

With its product variations alpha (premium model) and beta (basic model, upgradable) the Vencube is the hardware of the unique Vensolutions system.

All data records are SSL encrypted, access protected and signed in addition to check authenticity and integrity. The Vencube case is always sealed to prevent unauthorized opening or manipulation. With its converter technology the Vencube supports all vending specific protocols (Executive, MDB and BDV).

Ventool - the app

Ventool is the mobile solution for controlling and maintaining the system on location. The app is also used for the configuration of the Vencube.

After installing Ventool on an Android-based device, a smart phone or tablet computer can be connected to the Vencube and configurations can be adjusted. This enables a unified handling of the vending machine periphery.

By using the app all data concerning product and money movements is read-out on location and uploaded directly onto the online platform Vensoft. In doing so, the inventory is completed electronically on location - even in areas with weak mobile communication infrastructure.

Today the recording of product movements and inventory, accounting and other data is often still done manually by operators and technicians. With our free app Ventool we have created a solution which optimizes your business process and saves you time and money.
