Managing coffee machines can be a real hassle. From making sure the beans are fresh to keeping the machines clean, there's a lot to think about. And if you're running them in separate locations, you will most likely need to hire someone to help you out.
But that's a thing of the past. With SmVend, you can connect all your coffee machines to one central network. This way, you can manage them remotely and keep track of everything that's going on.
We worked hard to make our Telemetry Controller integrate seamlessly with Dr. Coffee machines. So now you can use SmVend to not only manage your coffee machines, but also to get insights into how they're being used.
It's like having an army of tiny baristas working for you, 24/7. Except you don't have to pay them a salary.
Let's see how the SmVend Telemetry Controller works with Dr. Coffee machines, and how you can use it to take your coffee business to the next level.
The power of SmVend reporting
With SmVend you get all the data you need to make informed decisions about your coffee business. You can see exactly how much coffee each machine is selling, what kind of coffees are being ordered, and when the machines are being used the most through our web app.
Additionally, you get real-time reports via e-mail or Telegram app alerts when something goes wrong with one of your machines. This way you can take action immediately, and avoid losing sales. For example, your machine might be low on beans, or the water filter might need to be replaced.
If you're running a coffee business with multiple locations, you can use our reporting features to see which machines are selling the most coffee, and adjust your inventory or pricing accordingly. You can set up notifications for when a machine needs to be restocked, or when maintenance is required.
Reports are only a small part of what SmVend can do for you. With our central management system, you can also remotely control your Dr. Coffee machines, and make sure they're always running smoothly. Let's see how.
Remote management of Dr. Coffee machines
SmVend gives you the ability to remotely control all your coffee machines, no matter where they are. With our web app, you can see the status of each machine in real time, and take action if something is not working as it should. For example, let's say one of your machines is having trouble brewing coffee. You can see the error message on the machine's display, and use the web app to send a command to the machine to start the brewing process again.
You can also remotely change settings on your machines, like:
- The price of coffee
- The selection of coffees available
- Run a flash sale
If you want to offer a special deal on a certain coffee, you can do so without having to go to each machine individually.
And if you're running a fleet of Dr. Coffee machines, you can use SmVend to keep track of their maintenance schedule. With our web app, you can set up reminders for when a machine needs to be cleaned or serviced. This way, you can avoid costly repairs, and keep your machines in top condition.
The Telemetry Controller also lets you keep your Dr. Coffee machines in top shape. For example, you can get a notification when the water filter needs to be replaced, so you can do it before it becomes a problem.
And last, but not least, you can control prices through the web app. Want to run a sale on a certain coffee, perhaps because you want to replace it with a new flavor? Fire up the web app and edit the price in a few clicks.
Or maybe you want to raise prices across the board to offset the cost of beans. You can do that too, without having to go to each machine individually.
In short, the SmVend Telemetry Controller gives you complete control over your coffee machines, no matter where they are. And with our reporting features, you have all the data you need to make informed decisions about your coffee business.
And, with SmVend, you can also start accepting cashless payments.
Cashless payments with SmVend Telemetry Controller
QR-code payments are becoming more and more popular, as they're quick, easy, and secure. And with SmVend Telemetry Controller, you can start accepting cashless payments for your coffee both with credit, debit cards and QR-codes.
With our web app, you can generate a QR-code that customers can scan to make a payment. You can also specify the amount to be paid, so there's no need for customers to enter it themselves.
Payments are processed immediately, and you'll receive a notification when a payment is made. You can also view all your transactions in the web app, to keep track of your sales.
You won't have to worry about the cash in the machine getting stolen, or about change for customers who don't have the exact amount. Just have your customer scan the QR-code with their smartphone linked to their payment method of choice, and they can make a payment in seconds. Everybody wins.
Accepting cashless payments with SmVend is quick, easy, and secure. And it's a great way to offer your customers more convenience. Plus, it's more convenient for you as well. Having to visit your machines to collect cash and change is a real hassle.
