When you have multiple types of machines that hold different products things can get confusing. You want to be able to get maximum control over your vending business. Using online vending management software will allow you to keep track of each product in each machine so you know whats going on at all times. Plus, by tracking inventory your business is going to be much more efficient! Finding soda machines is the first step and then being able to manage your business is the second. Getting good used machines at great prices will put you ahead of the competition. Adding to that an advanced vending management solution and youll really pull out from the pack!
Many options are available to you to get the soda machine you select for your business. There are soda bottling companies that will provide the machine without charge. You will be obligated to sign a contract with the company and will also have to agree to buy supplies only from that company. This will not allow you to shop for competitive pricing for your supplies and will lessen your profit. The company will offer incentives when you purchase their product. This may come in the form of a free case of soda when you purchase 12 cases, as an example.
When you purchase all your beverages from that one supplier you will be paying full price. Another way to go would be to purchase a second hand soda machine, so as to see higher profits. Buying used allows you to get a discount off the machine; it could be 50% off the cost. It is sometimes possible to purchase a refurbished soda machine from the distributors at a much lower price that the new machines. Once you own the machine outright, you are not restricted as to where you can purchase your supplies. In this way you will be able to buy from any supplier and even take advantage of sales offered by wholesalers. Another possibility is buying your supplies from a supermarket where you may get the beverages at less than the wholesale price.
If you have a soda machine on your property and you pay for electricity to run that machine, you could be spending a decent amount of money providing electricity to it at times that no one is around. The result is a significant amount of wasted money and energy over the course of a year. In some areas its costs over $500 per year to operate a soda machine. There are a few options to solving this challenge including: removing the lights (delamping), unplugging, putting it on a timer and installing VendingMiser.
