Global Trend of Smart Vending Machines
According to Frost & Sullivan, the automatic merchandising machine has become a symbol of the world’s quest for convenience, operating 24 hours around the clock, 7 days a week. Unattended retailing has become more popular due to its convenience and low cost.
There has been an increasing number of smart vending machines globally that includes a touch screen interface, increased security for transaction, mobile payments option, speech processing, anti-theft or anti-vandal cameras, multiple modes to transact, cashless system and remote management. Moving away from traditional vending machines selling low-end products such as snacks and drinks, many intelligent vending machines have been implemented and have begun selling higher-end products such as electronic goods and sunglasses.
They are found in many locations in other countries especially at tourist attractions, train stations and airports. These smart vending machines thrive mainly due to the higher security and convenience they offer. As these smart vending machines have not yet entered the Malaysian market, this would be a great opportunity for us to pioneer the Malaysian market using this approach.
