Consulting

Our team + your team = the best team for installations, upgrades, and software implementation.

The US vending industry processes $20B in revenues annually; however, due to the high relative cost of operating machines and inefficiencies in traditional operations, the 10,000 or so vending operators in the country share only $500MM worth of profits — a dismal 2.5%. Deploying technology from Vagabond and its partners, along with advanced methodologies enabled by the technology, can return up to 20% profit margins. Benefits include accurate inventory management, efficient truck routing, dynamic merchandising, route scheduling and cash accountability. 

Despite the benefits that can be derived from deploying technology onto vending machines, only about 20% of the industry’s machines are connected. Cashless gear needs to be installed, machines need to be upgraded to accept that gear, VMS software must be integrated, and teams must be trained to use it all effectively. This is expensive and difficult. Operators rarely have the capacity or the capability to do so efficiently.

Vagabond's project teams, in conjunction with our One Rate financing programs, partner with business owners to bring their operation up to par in months.
