The Digital Checkouts kiosk, shown by Ray Friedrich, accepts credit and stored value cards. It also accepts and dispenses cash and coins. 
Micro markets have given new life to refreshment services over the last several years. They have allowed vending operators to offer more product variety with an upfront investment that in many cases is less than that of a vending bank.

Micro markets have also played a role improving manual feeding in corporate cafeterias. Customers can pick up orders at the food counter and pay for them by scanning the packages at a micro market payment kiosk. In some cases, the  micro market has eliminated the need for a cashier.

A newly developed kiosk from startup Digital Checkouts now allows patrons to place and pay for orders in advance, eliminating the need to pay at the kiosk after picking up the order. This improves the speed of service and removes the need for the servers to attach bar codes to orders .

Ray Friedrich, CEO of Sterling Services Inc., a Canton, Mich.-based refreshment services company, has spearheaded the development of self order kiosks and has deployed them in several industrial cafeterias. He claims the self order kiosks allow patrons to be served faster and significantly improves the economics of a manual feeding operation.

Canteloupe Systems Intregates with Gimme Vending
Cantaloupe Systems, a provider of cloud-based, mobile technologies that deliver an integrated end-to-end vending and payments solution, has partnered with Gimme Vending to integrate Gimme Vending's Bluetooth technology into its front-end driver software, Seed Mobile.
Gimme's technology provides users with a wireless device for drivers to download DEX from machines in areas where it is impossible or impractical for a telemetry device, or in areas with little to no cell coverage.
The Seed key fits in a driver's pocket and allows operators to connect their entire operation. The key also integrates with Seed Mobile, using Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) for security and easier setup than legacy Bluetooth devices.
The Seed key enables DEX-ing without clumsy and expensive cables and doesn't require set up or pairing. It is a rugged IP67 device that is waterproof, dustproof and drop proof without flimsy clips.
