Pioneer of digitalized self-service vending machines
The FarmVend concept
Our concept is based on the usage of self-service vending machines which are connected via software. This software was developed by us and makes the system smart and simple. Customers of micro markets start their purchase at the payment terminal where they can select the goods via touch tablet. The purchasing process reminds of an online shop. The only difference is that customers do it in-store and can collect their products immediately after they have paid the selected products.
We combine regionality, tradition and modern techniques which turn the purchasing process to an unique shopping experience.
FarmVend vending machines facilitate the access to regional specialties from regional farmers in which customers’ trust in. More and more customers desire to buy locally and to reduce the contact to other people due to the Corona crisis. The 24/7 accessibility of your shop represents an added value which you can offer to your customers. Another plus is the order and payment process which happens as a bundled process via touch-display and a virtual shopping cart. The big advantage for you as a FarmVend isle-operator is its integrated telemetry. Therefore, you can control and operate the machines from home via internet connection and all sales data are saved and recorded in the system.
Benefit from our innovative system, which revolutionizes farm gate sales.
What is already routine in online shops, is now implemented in direct marketers’ shops with the help of FarmVend.
- Selling without staff
- 24/7 opening hours
- Virtual shopping cart
- Ordering process via touch-display on-site (optional via online shop)
Many customers are scared off by the scarcity of information concerning where, what and when to buy from local farmers.
Our FarmVend system offers nearly unlimited access to the products and can be placed at a central place near the city center without sales staff.
FarmVend = farm + vend (vending machine)
We are the producer of the FarmVend micromarket, which you can buy in St. Pölten, Lower Austria and all over Austria. Moreover, we also sell to other European countries. You can also buy our micro market products in Germany through our partner Guido Klein.
Our vending machines
We offer vending machines for food, beverages, and non-food products. The vending machines can be placed indoors or in roofed outdoor areas. Our offer comprises machines with and without cooling function. Besides the vending machines which carry the products, we also offer machines for steering and operating purposes. The order- and payment terminal as well as the operating module for the vending machines complete our offer.
The vending machines are connected through a software which is developed by us. This method simplifies entering the data into the system through remote maintenance. Customers can select the products and pay, both done at the payment terminal. Everything else is done by the system. Afterwards, vending machines issue the paid products to the customers with the help of QR-codes. Click here for more information.
