Philadelphia Business Journal Says Smart Vending Machines May Be The Future Of Retailing and Marketing

AVT, Inc. (OTC Markets: AVTC) (, a leading manufacturer of automated retailing systems and custom vending machines, commented today on an article in the Philadelphia Business Journal that stated that the future of retailing and marketing may be in new “Smart Vending” machines.

AVT is a leader in Smart Vending solutions, with patented technologies and newly designed features including smart phone integration and Apple Pay. AVT has patents covering multi-media and how vending machines communicate with operators through a wireless network – both of which are vital components in Smart Vending, and which can provide new licensing revenue streams.

The Journal said that the cost of opening full-service brick-and-mortar stores doesn’t make sense for most companies, however, automated retailing, “allows companies to insert their brands into people’s lives in places that they may not have been able to in the past,” and that they add value to consumers’ lives, by delivering targeted messages that resonate with consumers.

Campbell’s Soup Company is just one of the major corporations that is using vending to engage consumers in new and meaningful ways.

“This platform provides us with a glimpse of the future and allows us to stay a step ahead in an ever-changing marketing landscape,” Zach Barkus, manager of mobile and emerging media at Campbell’s, told the Journal.

“As major corporations continue to discover the many benefits of smart vending, the landscape of both retailing and marketing will continue to change,” said Shannon Illingworth, Founder and Chairman of AVT, Inc. “I believe that with our patented communications platform and multimedia technology, AVT has substantial opportunities to capture new market share, and emerge as a dominant force in the rapidly growing Smart Vending Industry.”
