29 Oct USA Technologies Announces Results Reported by Automatic Food Services Following Implementation of the Seed™ Enterprise Optimization Platform
Automatic Food Services (AFS) reports increase in sales per route of 45% and operational efficiencies following introduction of Seed Pro™, Seed Office™, and Seed Markets™
MALVERN, Pa.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–USA Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ:USAT) (“USAT”), a cashless payments and software services company that provides end-to-end technology solutions for the self-service retail market, today announced the results reported by Automatic Food Services (AFS) following the successful installation of Seed Pro™, Seed Office™, and Seed Markets™.
“Our previous system did not provide insight into our machines’ stock levels or maintenance needs, which slowed down service times as we stopped at machines that didn’t need servicing, or in other cases, needed to circle back to the truck to pick up more inventory,” said Trey Hamre, operations manager, AFS. “Seed’s dynamic pre-kitting and remote insight makes restocking machines more efficient than our previous method, allowing us to get through our routes faster and easier than ever before.”
After leveraging one enterprise-wide platform for their vending machine and office coffee business, AFS reports that they has seen more than a 45% increase in sales per route, while consolidating their total number of routes through an organization-wide simplification of scheduling, delivery and servicing.
“We are thrilled to learn of AFS’s measurement of their ROI following introduction of USAT’s technology to their business operations,” said Maeve McKenna Duska, senior vice president of marketing, USA Technologies. “While AFS had previously converted nearly 1,350 of their vending machines to cashless, they did not have a system to maximize operational efficiency and easily monitor business outputs and metrics. We believe that AFS’s expansion of their relationship with us to include the Seed platform provided them with the optimal solution.”
Hamre continued, “We were initially concerned about the transition, but in working closely with USAT’s Customer Success Manager team, we were able to rapidly deploy the Seed platform across our network while setting benchmark business metrics to track before and after the implementation.”
