The benefits of using our products in cashless vending include:
Our Keys and Tokens are easy to use
Our products have been proven over many years
Nexus products are well suited to cashless vending applications, either using our standard range of Keys or Tokens or in the case of a parking meter application using a custom designed product. The ruggedness of the products allows the user to carry them in their pocket or bag without any problems unlike magnetic stripe or smart cards.
Mars Drinks produces the KLIX range of drink and snack vending machines. They use our Keys to give end-users a way of buying products without using cash. The key is simply loaded with credit by the user, with purchases made from any authorised vending machine in the building.
Parking meters produced by Duncan Industries are used in over 60 countries. To discourage vandalism and theft, the company approached Datakey Electronics to develop a ‘CashKey’ that was tough enough to handle repeated use in an outdoor environment. The resulting product, which can be installed in conventional-looking meters, has been featured in Newsweek magazine.
QuikPay use our rugged Key as a cashless solution for self service and automated car washes. Customers can either purchase a pre-paid Key or set up an account, they are then billed based on usage monitored on the Key. The Key fits perfectly on users' keyrings so they always have the Key with them when they are in their car. The ruggedness of the product means it is well suited to being used around water, petrol and oil.
