It’s Lolly, the digital EPOS and commerce specialist, is proud to announce that it has added a vending offering to its suite of products.
Lolly has partnered with Payter to introduce a cost effective vending product to market. This launch enables the retrofitting of an existing machine to unite vending with Lolly’s integrated hospitality offering.
LollyVend allows vending solutions to be completely managed by the hospitality provider or corporate caterer – creating a dynamic, rewarding vending service. Previously vending options have been difficult to introduce due to costs which outweighed ROI and revenue possibilities from machines. This new product is set to transform the potential of vending for catering and hospitality by allowing providers to have complete control and benefit from vending.
From payment, to management, LollyVend takes vending to the next level. Catering providers are able to see the value taken from a machine in real-time. Vending will be set up to take cashless, card or payment via application. The unit that is deployed will have a QR code scanner, to help individuals using the Lolly application pay seamlessly and be rewarded through their mobile app – adding another unique service to what was once a sterile product.
A fantastic addition to any hospitality or commercial setting where people are working around the clock on a mixture of shift patterns, the Lolly vending solution can provide not only the traditional sweet and savory snacks, but also the healthier options of food that some businesses choose to promote in line with employee wellbeing. Snack options can be clearly labelled to meet Natasha’s Law requirements.
Peter Moore, CEO of It’s Lolly: “We are very excited to be launching LollyVend. Traditionally, vending has remained outside the entire hospitality offering. Now we have launched a vending solution that can be brought into these types of environment, to form part of the digital hospitality journey for the customer or employee.
“The machine has a highly secure and robust chip and pin reader – making it a cost-effective option, and one which finally enables the hospitality provider to take control of their on-site vending. They can remain confident in the security of the machine, even in an unmanned environment.
“For businesses or settings which operate shift timetables this type of machine makes complete sense. It is quick and easy to purchase food, and it also minimises human contact, which is critical in the current COVID climate.”
