CodeRealm Corporation’s solutions impact the vending machine industry by providing accurate real-time sales and machine
status information on-demand or automatically. Our solutions can help you manage and control your vending machine service,
products, and repairs. Vending machine service includes route drivers, money collection, restocking merchandise, new labels
for new products, and simple machine cleanliness. Vending machine maintenance and repairs assure proper operations and
longevity. Vending machine product inventory and selection is one of the most important revenue factors. Keeping the right
products, at the right place, at the right time, can maximize your vending machines’ revenue potential.
A continuously available, competitively priced product selection tuned to a particular market location having plenty of
potential consumers maximizes revenue. Take the guesswork out of tuning the product selection quantities to a particular
market location. Reduce the tuning process from several weeks down to a few days. Because the tuning process is automatic
and continuous, each location is at optimum tune most of the time, which maximizes revenue.
In a perfect world perfect tuning would have all products run out at the same time exactly when the perfect schedule had
someone arrive to restock resulting in 100% sales and 0% lost-sales. In the real world a 100% tuning is not possible but
much better than 50% is certainly necessary. A completely empty machine at restock time begs the questions, “How long has
it been out? How many sales did I loose? Do I need higher capacity machines, more machines or simply an adjustment to the
restock schedule? Is doing nothing the best option?”
Currently, diligent attention and hard work can achieve operations into the 80% range. The average range will be less because
tuning takes several weeks and should be done at least once each season. Attempting to push much beyond the 80% level
increases the chances of lost-sales, and increased labor, machine, equipment, fuel, and other operational costs begins to
cancel subsequent revenue increases.
In the CodeRealm world you can expect an operational average to exceed 90%! Imagine having most machines sell 90% of their
product selections with no selections being completely sold-out at restock time. Real-time sales information and accurate
sales history allows CodeRealm to provide a dynamic view of sales from any machine and adjust orders, schedules, and other
operations for optimum performance. Restock and service routes can use a seven-way routing system that can dynamically adjust
to include radically different restock intervals while optimizing path for best time and or distance. These advantages lead
to fewer lost-sales, increased revenue, and lower labor, machine, equipment, fuel, and other operational costs.
Real-time machine operational status information collected and analyzed by CodeRealm can result in immediate knowledge of a
machine malfunction. Discovering a completely or nearly full machine at normal restock time resulting in lost-sales revenue
for one, two or more weeks can be avoided. Detailed machine operational status and accurate maintenance history can provide
enough information soon enough to see a problem in the making, allowing prompt corrective action to prevent many of the
machine malfunctions. Timely and accurate information decreases problem diagnosis time and increased accuracy further
reducing machine downtime. Increased sales means increased wholesale order quantities and better quantity discounts,
providing another significant decrease in costs.
The competition for the very best locations with highest pedestrian traffic is extremely high and therefore very expensive.
Usually, only name-brand companies can afford those locations because they “write-off” the expense to advertising. Smaller
independent companies can compete because CodeRealm Corporation’s solutions impact the vending machine industry by providing
accurate real-time sales and machine status information on-demand or automatically.
