Velocity Smart Collect™ Smart Vending is built with employees in mind.
The key to our Velocity Smart Collect™ Smart Vending is that to use the solution; employees don’t need to raise support tickets or request any help from support teams. In fact, to ensure that our solution is the easiest possible solution for employees, we have built a series of user-focused application features which are available out of the box.
Vending machine item availability checking
Sometimes its useful for an employee to be able to check whether an item they are wanting to pick up is available in the vending machine they know they are going to passing by.
Increasingly with Hybrid working this feature is used to potentially determine what time or even which office location the employee is going to work from.
Issue a temporary Vending QR Code
The employee has lost their SID, but absolutely must have an item from a Vending Machine? No problem.
Just like modern ATM systems can give a customer access to they money without their bank card, the user can go into the Velocity Smart Collect™ application and get a QR code which they can use for just this situation.
Request increase in Vending allowance
The employee can also request an increase to their allocated vending allowance, in case they have already used the allowance in the period or know that they will need more than allocated.
