Vianet To Sponsor Vending Insight From Planet Vending

Planet Vending is delighted to announce that Vianet Ltd, one of Britain’s leading providers of IoT solutions has agreed to sponsor our ground-breaking ‘Vending Insight’ feature.

‘Vending Insight’ has got the whole industry talking about The Internet of Things, data and connectivity and how developments in technology impact on the business of vending’, said Vianet Smart Machines MD Matt Lane. ‘Some of the industry’s leading thought leaders have contributed their thoughts to the feature as guest bloggers and in the few months that Vending Insight has been around, it’s become a ‘must-read’.’

Planet Vending’s Publisher and Managing Director Yvonne Reynolds-Young is happy and proud that Vending Insight has had such a positive impact that a major company such as Vianet has chosen to be associated with it. ‘Vending Insight was a change of direction for Planet Vending’, she said. ‘It was a huge commitment for us and something of a risk; purely in terms of the time it takes to compile each week. We’ve been genuinely delighted by the quality of the people who have given freely of their knowledge and expertise as our ‘thought leaders’ and I’d like to take this opportunity to thank them. Their contributions have been invaluable.’

For those who are unaware, Vending Insight is a regular feature from Planet Vending that focuses on today’s cashless, connected, Internet of Things society. There’s no product news in Vending Insight and no stories about the providers of those products. On the contrary, it’s intended to provide food for thought for those vending operators who are hungry for information on developing technologies.

‘Vending Insight’ is a perfect fit for Vianet and particularly for our Smart Machines division’ Matt said. ‘The company has been in business of 22 years and AIM listed since 2006. It’s our mission to deliver actionable insight to our customers via the Internet of Things and we have over a quarter of a million devices connected to our platform.

‘Leveraging Vianet Smart Machine technology gives our customers the opportunity to connect our IOT communication device to an asset, system or machine, Matt said. ‘The device then sends performance date back to our cloud based servers where it is processed real time enabling customers to proactively improve performance and create transformational opportunities for growth.’
