TouchGo Technology Systems Limited (TouchGo) has developed the new generation of PC based Intelligent Vending Machines (IVM) incorporating a large 46” touchscreen, internet connectivity, web camera for audience impression metrics, QR code scanner for mobile phone payment and other payment terminal devices.
This allows operators to control the vending machine remotely, over the internet, so that price changes, special offers, video advertising content etc. can be changed. The IVM provides cloud based reporting and telemetry information.
Customers interact with the machine via the touchscreen and can pay with contactless or contact debit/credit cards (no pin) or by PayPal or Ensygnia Onescan smartphone payment apps. The IVM can handle multiple purchases via a visual shopping basket system to ensure payment transaction costs are kept to a minimum.
The IVM software is fully developed and operational. TouchGo owns the intellectual property (IP) in the software code and has the necessary certifications and approval agreements with VISA and Mastercard to allow the use of contactless and contact (no pin) payments at the vending machine. The IVM is manufactured exclusively for TouchGo by our supplier partner in China. The supplier will also market the IVM directly into the Chinese market in a joint venture with TouchGo.
The TOUCHGO technology solution exists to transform processes in the Intelligent Vending Machine marketplace, create new revenue based services and provide a useful node of interaction with the consumer.
TouchGo is in discussions with organisations in the fast growing coffee tower “On the Go” to provide its IVM software to enhance their proposition as effectively as possible
