Cantaloupe Systems hired Archer Software to develop Seed Pro – a powerful data analytics tool that could aggregate the data from the vending machines and provide operators with instructions for: which machines to visit and which products to replenish, which planogram should be implemented and which machines need to be repaired.
The solution had to include two components: 1) the sensors installed in the vending machines to track parameters and wirelessly transfer the data to the manager; 2) the BI app that can be accessed from a laptop or any mobile device.
Archer Software has created 4 main vending machine route management solutions for Cantaloupe – Seed 2 (Aeon), Seed Root, Seed Management, and Seed Sync – and delivered 20 service projects including DB backup manager, DB version manager, and Web Commander.
Cantaloupe Systems has become one of the fastest-growing companies in the USA. Around 80,000 machines spread all over the world are managed by Cantaloupe Systems solutions.
