Blue Vending App on C71

Just tested our  Blue Vending App with the new C71 Mobile Computer and it is perfect. I loved the screen size of the computer, 1D and 2D scanner, which give a boost to warehouse management via the application. And now it is a lot compact and light, so it is hard to be used for “killing”.

Blue Vending Player (BVP)

We were curious to make a old vending machine look little bit more IoT (interesting) and possibility to for additional channel of income(like playing ads during coffee brew).

When customer purchase a product we can play custom video or personal message, music clip. Some kind of “Personal  treatment” if his phone support  BLE(Bluetooth Low Energy). It will be also possible to apply custom discounts and promotions.
