As interest in vending has spiked, small and mid-sized distributors are under increasing demand from customers to supply the service. But for some, the cost to begin can be prohibitive. Vending machine and software suppliers have responded to the demand for a lower-cost option to help these distributors serve smaller customers profitably. SnapVend is one of these solutions. The company was developed by a safety supplies distributor, Mallory Safety & Supply, who worked with VendNovation to integrate its cloud-based technology.
