Televend Delivers AI Powered Software – so You Can Get Your Life Back

Televend : Doing vending’s donkeywork!

Did you know that SMEs account for around 80% of the UK vending industry? To make a success of their businesses, owners are required to keep more balls-in-the-air than your average juggler. They’re not just MDs, they’re also in charge of HR, Sales; Operations, Distribution; Health & Safety, Purchasing… You name it, they do it; or it doesn’t get done.

TelevendMore often than not, this constant graft – not to mention the strain that comes with it – leaves precious little time for winding down with family or friends, and the pathway to burnout begins right there… How many of us have been told, at some time or another, that we ‘need to get a life?’

There’s a way you can ease the pressure you’re under:  AI.

While personal voice assistants and self-driving cars put AI in the limelight, the technology can make a real impact in your vending business. It can help you run your business more efficiently. It can give you the gift of time.

As a leading European vending solution that is significantly powered by AI technology, Televend can show you how. Since they launched dynamic route planning a few years ago, they’ve pioneered the integration of AI into vending software, so their dynamic routing is built on real-time telemetry, sales triggers, and a predictive model that flags up those machines you can’t afford not to visit… Using the Televend system, Route Planners can schedule the itinerary for a whole week, in just a few minutes.

Since the first version, they’ve taken further strides in the dynamic route field. Today, the upgraded software can create routes automatically – that’s to say without any human interaction – thanks to an algorithm that considers the number of available merchandisers, their work hours and their priorities, before allocating the route to the best-placed merchandiser.

You can also speed up your packing process with Televend’s pre-kitting and predictive pickup. This module saves time in the warehouse by creating a picking list for the next route. It also cuts time for merchandisers on location because they no longer need to conduct an initial stock check of the machine: they simply get a pre-packed box out of the van and voilà. What’s more, AI predicts how many products will sell out while merchandisers are on their way and adds to the picking list appropriately.

Think of it this way: Televend’s AI does the donkeywork of vending. It analyses data, it forecasts and it plans. It keeps all those balls in the air so you don’t have to; and it does all that much faster and much more accurately than you (or anybody else, come to that!) could, leaving you to get on with other important tasks, like maybe getting reacquainted with your family.

You’ll find that Televend’s system is remarkably intuitive, so onboarding employees really isn’t an issue.  Televend also keeps track of every transaction, asset and change in the system, so it’ll be much easier to pass on the nuts and bolts of running your company to your successor, when that time eventually comes.

If you want to know how Televend can help you regain your work-life balance (or, worst case scenario, get a life!) why not schedule a demo. They’re there to help!
