Vianet Smart Machines’ expansion continues with the announcement that the company is seeking to hire five Business Development Managers to join its Sales Team.

Established in 2006, Vianet is one of the UK’s largest connectivity solution providers, with more than 250,000 devices connected to its platform and long-term relationships with more than 300 customers, including a number of global blue-chip companies.

The successful applicants will work with the company’s customers in the Vending Industry, machine manufacturers; consumer brands, Foodservice businesses and others in the UK and Europe, selling contactless payment and telemetry units to both existing and new clients.

MD Rob Little is open-minded regarding the experience the new people will bring to the company, but says they will all have in common ‘a hunger for success’. ‘The Business Development Managers will each be accountable for individual sales target to support strategic growth plans’, he said. ‘They’ll be expected to use their own initiative to work independently, as well as collaboratively, within the team.

‘I think commercial acumen, the ability to sell solutions to customer problems and being a natural networker, coupled with a high level of written and verbal communication skills, will be more important than hands-on experience in the vending industry. If the applicants have previous experience of working in a fast paced, customer focused environment, then so much the better.’

Rob says that Vianet Smart Machines’ mission is ‘to be the recognised leader in delivering unparalleled insight and actionable information that is game-changing for our customers, delivering unrivalled insight that drives real change’.

‘Over the next 2 years l we think we can increase the number of readers in our portfolio by 500%. That sounds like a big number, but almost 90% of the readers we have in the marketplace today have been added in the last 2 years. It’s a demonstration of how quickly the market is coming to maturity.

‘These days, vending operators are choosing to use contactless with telemetry or have telemetry on it own, stand-alone. There’s been a huge expansion of telemetry in the table-top coffee machine market, whilst machines selling snacks cans, bottles or food – plus some coffee machines – depending on where they are located – are equipped with telemetry and contactless.’
