Vending

With Mappost, vending companies optimize operational flows and successfully deal with the industry's lack of predictability

Mappost offers a next-generation automated route and resource optimization solution for the vending industry which automates processes and planning, to optimize operational flows and help vending businesses deal with the challenges of day-to-day unpredictability. The solution employs telemetry to collect and analyze self-service point data from thousands of devices and transaction systems like world-renowned Nayax. It then automatically turns input into useful information, creating optimized daily routes for each available operator to service, inspect and restock the machines on time.

Moreover, with the help of its smart prediction algorithms and geospatial analysis, the Mappost system continuously checks stock levels and dynamically combines this data with route and device GPS data and visiting costs, which allows it to anticipate restocking in the most cost-efficient way. This way, some machines can be included in the daily routes even before their stock alerts if servicing them will be cost-inefficient later on, thus streamlining and optimizing resources and efforts.

Mappost’s flexibility and the fact that it will always adapt to the needs, growth, and changing business environment of your company, make it an excellent choice for the future.

Companies that use Mappost’s vending solution report higher profitability, operational process digitalization level, and competitiveness since they register fewer kilometers and driving time. This translates into reduced resource consumption, a lower carbon footprint, as well as happier customers which benefit from increased control over stock management, higher product availability, and fewer human errors compared to the outmoded traditional route planning process.
