With nearly one in four Americans enrolled in educational institutions, educational services are the second largest industry in the country, employing more than 13 million people.  With escalating costs of workers’ benefits and the difficulties associated with staffing, cashierless vending machines is the solution many schools and colleges have been waiting for.

Educational institutions nationwide from the University of Oklahoma to the University of Michigan have embraced automated dispensing integrated with their existing POS to provide its employees and students with 24/7 access to quick, easy grab-and-go items from food and drink items to retail products to tech accessories and devices. In addition to convenience, unattended cashierless school vending machines and smart locker locations increase revenue and speed up check-out lines in cafeterias, bookstores, and other campus outlets.
