VendMe (from German company Cumulocity) is a cloud-based M2M solution that connects vending machines and provides real-time sales and stock level data in a central management, reporting and planning application.
Vending operators can significantly improve operational efficiency, increase sales and connect with their customers. VendMe collects reports on inventory and cash status over the mobile network in real-time.
With VendMe, vending machine operators can plan and schedule machine service (refill) at the optimum time, preventing empty slots in the machine. With the help of VendMe’s workforce management feature, they can implement dynamic route and work planning for the service people (refillers and service technicians).
For service employees, VendMe comes with a smartphone app which provides all needed information about workplans and machines statuses.
Cumulocity stands for fast cloud solutions: a compound word of ‘Cumulus’ (“Cloud”) and ‘Velocity’.
