Technology - Efficient, Improved Vending Experience

To remain at the forefront of vending, ARC Vending places an emphasis on utilizing emerging technologies that enhance the user experience. We incorporate ergonomic consumer interfaces that facilitate an easy, seamless transaction. Through the use of handheld computer technology interacting with our equipment and our ability to remotely monitor machines, ARC Vending is both efficient and quick to respond. And the software we develop is leading vending into a new era of technological standards, with machines that run smoother, respond faster, and create an entirely new vending experience.

Chicago Vending Technology


Vending's biggest problem has been solved - No more product jams! SureVend uses special infrared technology to ensure that your products vend properly. If a selection doesn't drop, SureVend detects the failure and tries again twice. And if for some reason it still won't drop, consumers can select another product or choose to receive their money back. With this SureVend Technology, you'll avoid tedious service calls, failed vends, and frustrated consumers.

Handheld Devices

Chicago Vending Technology All route drivers carry handheld technology that tracks all items purchased within the machines. By using handheld technology, route schedules can be made more timely and efficiently in addition to tracking fast moving items in the machines.

Using handheld computers, each ARC Vending route driver electronically downloads all sales, inventory and cash accounting data from each vending machine. The data collected from each customer visit includes exact product sales (i.e. how many Snickers bars sold over the last day, week or month). In addition, we closely monitor the exact amount of coins and bills collected from each service visit.

From an item-level merchandising perspective, ARC Vending uses this data to ensure desirable and popular selling products are stocked in each of its vending machines. Thus, a unique product plan-o-gram or customized menu program can be designed and implemented for each customer.

Wireless 24/7 Monitoring

Unlike cafeterias, grocery stores and quick-marts, vending machines provide a valuable service to your location 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. And to ensure that they're working properly, we can incorporate powerful wireless monitoring tools into our machines that let us know when its time to be serviced.

  • Seamless communication and coordination with your machines
  • 24/7 access to cash and machine data for quick customer support
  • 24/7 real-time access to sales inventory for consumers
  • Enhanced functionality for Dynamic Scheduling
  • Automatically turns machine alerts into service calls before you hear from a dissatisfied customer
