Did you read the recent press release about our partnership with Cantaloupe Systems to deploy their Seed Pro cloud-based analytics system across the U.S.? If so, you may be thinking “that’s great, but how does it affect the products and services I receive?” Glad you asked! Telemetry, optimization, integration—big words that mean improved operations for us, and better service for you. Let’s break it down:
- Telemetry lets us gather information from our machines in real time for the most accurate, up-to-date reporting. Better snapshots of machine product levels and sales data allow for efficient service scheduling and product rotation. More variety, less empties, happy customers!
- Optimization means greater efficiency throughout our operations. Seed Pro will help us improve our routes to eliminate unnecessary visits and deliver what you need, when you need it. Saves fuel, time and expenses, all without sacrificing service!
- Integration allows Seed Pro to talk with iVend, our proprietary vending management software. Real time reporting improves service schedules, ensures we come prepared with exactly the items needing to be restocked and dispatches technicians quickly if needed. The right products at the right time—talk about a win-win!
Alongside these valuable benefits for you are time-saving benefits for our route drivers. Our partnership with Cantaloupe enables drivers to leave the warehouse each day with ready-to-go customized bins for each stop on their optimized daily route. This pre-kitting lets drivers hit the road as soon as they arrive at work, which means we’re at your door that much faster!
To sum it all up:
Telemetry + Optimization + Integration = Greater Value and Better Service for You!
