Evoca : Magic in The Air at Vendex as Hervé Donneaud Predicts ‘Great Things’

EvocaEvoca : Visitors to Evoca at Vendex were expecting to see Magic – and they were glad they did…

Magic, the new, compact coffee machine from Saeco, with its sleek design and high-quality finish, delivers a premium consumer experience. Delegates appreciated both the familiarity of the machine’s internal layout, plus the parallels with Necta’s Kalea Plus software, accessed through the seven-inch HD touchscreen interface, which provides easy access to extensive configuration options, such as recipe customisation, temperature and beverage strength.

Saeco Magic is the informed choice for those looking to satisfy the needs of customers whose offices, due to more flexible working patterns, are rarely bustling as they did before lockdown… This may mean fluctuating coffee consumption in the workplace – but it doesn’t have to mean a reduction in the quality of the drinks, or in the extent of the choices that can be offered. It’s all about flexibility. Magic respects the post-lockdown elevation of consumer expectations and thanks to its bean-to-cup, fresh milk, premium coffee taste and appearance, it does not disappoint – and delegates acknowledged that such a high performance to value ratio was just what they were looking for…

EvocaThe Festival, from Necta, enjoyed similar attention at Leeds. Hailed as the smart solution for locations that are required to offer catering services 24/7, Festival is seen not so much as a vending machine as a genuine, automatic canteen. The machine offers extreme flexibility of configuration allowing operators to offer a wider selection of snacks, drinks, fresh dishes, fruit and yoghurt than ever before. What’s more, the enhanced electronics of Festival offers advanced machine and product management capabilities.

Thanks to the extremely efficient thermodynamic properties of the machine’s R290 coolant gas, this machine is the most energy efficient of its type Evoca has ever manufactured. No wonder operators are focusing in on Festival as their solution of choice for locations such as hospitals and educational institutions.

The other item of feedback that came as music to the ears of the on-stand staff was that Evoca has the advantage of ‘the best software, bar none’.

Hervé Donneaud

Hervé Donneaud, the Evoca UK Managing Director, was delighted to attend the show and touch base with so many customers, in an exceptionally busy day on the stand. He hinted that the latest innovations from the group are just the beginning… ‘After twenty years with Evoca, I keep being amazed by our achievements and the reliability of the solutions we are offering’, he said, adding: ‘But trust me: my wonderment is only matched by my determination to help all these great things happen going forward.’

It seems that the best is yet to come…
