Vending technology company USA Technologies plans to integrate the SmartTap mobile-commerce software into all of the company’s nearly 100,000 NFC-enabled terminals on vending machines nationwide.
Does this indicate Isis is laying groundwork for an expansion outside of its pilot cities of Salt Lake City, Utah, and Austin, Texas? Neither Isis nor the vendor would say.
“This will be downloaded to our terminals within the next few months,” USA Technologies’ vice president of corporate communications and investor relations, Veronica Rosa, told NFC Times. Along with the rollout of SmartTap, USA Technologies and Isis announced the launch of a “Fifth Vend Free” program, which will allow users to receive a free product on their fifth visit to a vending machine equipped with a USA Technologies terminal.
