MicroMarkets: How Technology Connects You To Convenience

MicroMarkets are the today’s food-service must-have. People all around the world love the variety of fresh food options they bring to their fingertips.

Consumers enjoy unattended, self-checkout convenience stores that offer a variety of fresh food, beverage and snack options 24/7/365, from open shelves, coolers, or freezers. Making purchases is simple, thanks to the use of cashless options such as a value market account via a MicroMarket mobile app.

The most important thing to consider when implementing MicroMarkets is the technology that connects consumers to products. The convenience technology is the muscle of your MicroMarket.


Here are a few innovative technologies from 365 Markets that will provide both you and your consumers with increased efficiency and enhanced experiences.

365 v5 Kiosk- Gen3

The v5 Gen3 kiosk is the workhouse of the modern day MicroMarket— a stylish, purpose-built appliance that offers best-in-class self-checkout technology with incredible uptime.

You can find this international, GDPR compliant, bestselling kiosk in a variety of different locations. Consumers enjoy using its 19” portrait touchscreen, 2D barcode scanner, upgraded fingerprint reader and more.

365Inside – The Office Coffee Service ‘Must-Have’

If you’re looking for other ways to increase your MicroMarket convenience, the 365Inside is a simple, cost-effective, cashless payment system to add to your OCS space.

The 365Inside is a compact plug-and-play device that fits directly inside your vending or coffee machine, allowing customers to checkout effortlessly with the 365Pay mobile app.


Another convenience MicroMarket option for you and your locations is the 365Beacon. Pair it with any of the above 365 technologies to help speed up checkout and minimize queuing.

The 365Beacon was nominated for 2019 Automatic Merchandiser’s Product of the Year thanks to its achievement in seamlessly streamlining the check out process by allowing consumers to scan and pay for products easily via a Bluetooth connection to the 365Pay app.

365Pay app

The  365Pay app provides customers around the world an easy way to snack. Your locations will enjoy the convenience of a single stored value account (Global Market Account) that works seamlessly across the MicroMarket, Vending, and Dining.

From the way you checkout, to the fresh food and healthy snacks they make available, MicroMarket convenience technology can be integrated easily into any office or community space, as an alternative to traditional vending.
