The most classic vending machine style is the bulk vendor. These have been around for decades, and were first highlighted in soda shops in the 1950s. Bulk vendors are small, gumball style machines where you put in a quarter to receive a handful of goodies, whether they are gumballs, other types of candy, peanuts, or anything else. So long as the product is small, anything can be put in these machines to be dispensed.
How Does It Work?
Bulk vending machines have the convenience of fitting just about anywhere. These machines are small enough to be put in a corner in the break room or along a hallway, and they won’t cause any traffic issues. The real question is how many do you want? Multiple bulk vendors are easy to place, and since IVM offers turnkey management, we refill stock within the machine and perform any maintenance or repairs as needed.
Since these are much smaller mechanisms that only provide one product per machine, there isn’t an integrated system to track the individual sales like our larger vending machines. However, the popularity of a particular product is easily determined by how quickly and how often the machine needs to be refilled.
Having smaller machines that are still maintained by IVM means the bulk vendors are even less of a hassle than their larger counterparts. Once they’ve been ordered, you can basically forget about them. That’s the beauty of the IVM management system.
