Time was when you’d be hard pressed to encounter a vending machine away from the factory floor. You’d never see them in hotels or shopping centres and why would you? Vending machines were seen as ‘the last resort’: the service you used in extremis when the canteen was closed and you were gagging for a drink and a bite to eat.
‘The fourth emergency service’, perhaps.
Times have changed! Vending machines have become the smart, hi-tech focal points of hotel lobbies, airport lounges; up-market office blocks, universities and public buildings such as leisure centres and hospitals. All of a sudden, they are ‘centre stage’.
What’s more, thanks to rapidly advancing technology, the rules about what can and can’t be sold in a vending machine have been completely re-written. Mambo, the latest in a long line of ground-breaking Necta products from N&W, is designed to offer whatever people need, wherever they need it.
Pasta boxes. Large bottles. Childcare paraphernalia; PPI and electronic devices, you name it: when you’ve got Mambo, what’s on offer no longer depends upon what you can fit into a spiral!
Mambo is, without doubt, a ‘big beast’ of a vending machine. It’s brimming with technology. It can offer for sale as many as 84 product selections. The interior of the machine is divided into two compartments, and although there’s just one cooling unit, you can store products at four different temperatures at the same time. That means you can offer fresh food, cans and bottles, snacks and ‘ambient’ products (which, in this case, means just about anything you fancy…)
Having said that, although it’s Big, it’s easy to handle. Just one person and one pallet truck will get the job done. No bother.
Mambo’s tough, too: all the external components, (the keypad, for instance) are constructed from metal; the delivery bin is reinforced and the user interface is vandal proof.
We could go on and on (and on) about this amazing machine, because it really does take vending to new places. Mambo is entirely capable of becoming the consumers’ retail solution of choice. So, before you get your hands on the full spec for this game-changing machine, or indeed see it for yourself, here’s a handy, ten-point Mambo Bluffers’ Guide, to whet your appetite:
