Pepsi Cola Hudson Valley Selects Cantaloupe Systems’ Seed Cloud Platform™ to Modernize its Vending Machines
SAN FRANCISCO – March 18, 2014 – Cantaloupe Systems, the vending industry’s premier provider of cloud-based, mobile technologies that deliver an integrated end-to-end vending retail solution, today announced that Pepsi Cola Hudson Valley and River Vending will deploy the Seed Cloud Platform suite of solutions to bring its vending business online connecting thousands of machines. The move will allow them to implement cashless payments, dynamic scheduling, pre-kitting, merchandising, and traditional route accounting solutions on a single platform while gaining greater route efficiencies, automating their back office, and driving incremental sales.
Once the implementation of the new platform and operating model is complete, which is expected before the end of 2014, Pepsi Cola Hudson Valley drivers will use iPods and iPads instead of the brick style handhelds that older systems require, also allowing for picture audits of their planograms without having to leave their desk.
“We are excited to modernize our aging vending business with an experienced and robust technology partner like Cantaloupe Systems. Between their cutting edge connected platform and the years of experience they have in modernizing vending companies with the latest technologies, we know we picked the right solution. Vending represents a huge opportunity for our business and we look forward to bringing it to the 21st century with Cantaloupe.” said Tim Tenney, President and Chief Executive Officer, Pepsi Cola Hudson Valley.
“Pepsi Cola Hudson Valley is an amazing company that we are excited to work with in deploying our Seed Cloud Platform and working together to equip their team with the tools needed to thrive in today’s vending market. They’ll be able to focus on what they do best without worrying about traditional IT issues that other systems inherently come with due to their aging architectures.” said Anant Agrawal, Chief Marketing Officer, Cantaloupe Systems.
