ATLANTA and CHICAGO, April 13, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Gimme Vending™, the leading provider of data integrity tools to the vending industry, today announced that the company is the proud recipient of the Automatic Merchandiser 2016 Readers' Choice New Product of the Year Award. The Gimme System™ was honored by readers of the leading industry trade publication in the Technology Category. The awards saw a 100 percent increase in the number of readers who cast votes this year.
Gimme Vending is making its public debut at the National Automatic Merchandising Association (NAMA) OneShow in Chicago, April 13 - 15. The company will be showcasing its combination hardware/software solution that turns traditional vending machines into data-producing, “smart” machines at booth 1825.
The Gimme System’s pocket-sized device and mobile app replaces legacy handhelds to reliably pull Data Exchange (DEX) files every time, even in disconnected environments. The consistent and accurate addition of cash and inventory accountability data to an operator’s existing vending management system improves reporting. Users experience faster servicing by as much as 4.5 minutes per machine, a reduction in returns of 11 percent and streamlined pre-kitting. Owners are able to track cash and inventory accountability data in real-time as drivers complete service in the field without downloading, synchronizing or hand-keying.
"We are on a mission to ensure that operators everywhere can reap the benefits of better data to drive profitability and efficiency,” said Cory Hewett, CEO of Gimme Vending. “We are honored that the Gimme System was voted Automatic Merchandiser 2016 Readers' Choice New Product of the Year Award.”
