Consumers are using mobile phones to pay for nearly
everything,  and it won't be long before mobile will become the main method of payment. Vending operators have been adopting mobile payment capability, but they need to speed up the pace if they want to capture their fair share of sales.

Evan Jarecki of Gimme Vending claims mobile pay will take the industry by storm in two years.
and co-founder of Gimme Vending LLC, which provides technology solutions for vending, during a presentation at the National Auto matic Merchandising Association show at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

In two years, Jarecki said mobile payment will take the vending industry by storm. 

While not all customers will use mobile pay, Jarecki said vending operators should offer as many payment options as possible.

He said mobile payment is more convenient for the vending customer than using cash or paying with a payment card.

Avanti Markets
Avanti Markets has introduced a new planogram tool to streamline the merchandising process.  The digital merchandising tool provides an interactive way for operators to determine the most effective way to physically lay out their micro market inventory.

Operators can tailor their stock based on consumer trends to ensure that products are placed where they will sell the best. The simplified interface makes it easy to access planograms, change on-hand levels of products and shift product placement based on inventory or current sales rates. Drivers will stock based on this data to ensure consistency and accountability across their routes.
