While there was once a time when the classic 10-digit keypad was the only means of making an order on a vending machine. However, thanks to the vast advances being made in the world of custom vending machines, customers enjoy a variety of transaction methods, between credit card receptacles and futuristic touch screens. If you’re torn between which type of interface to use for your customer base, consider the pros and cons of each:
Touch Screen: By utilizing a touch screen on your snack or retail vending machine, you will instant lure in customers who live for the latest technology. After all, who doesn’t want to use the shiniest new device on the block? Not only do touch screens look fancy, but they can put more product selections than ever right at the fingertips of your consumers.
Keypad: While touch screens ooze innovation, few things are as reliable as the classics. While touch screens can be easily damaged or destroyed, a keypad is likely to stand the test of time in the long run.
At the end of the day, there is no right or wrong way to represent your vending product. Thanks to Intelligent Dispensing Solutions, your custom vending machine will be an industry-leading product no matter what accessories it runs on!
