USA Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: USAT), (“USAT”), a leader of wireless, cashless payment and M2M telemetry solutions for small-ticket, self-serve retailing industries, today highlighted customer, Peninsula Vending Services (“Peninsula”), a full-service micro-market, office coffee and vending operator located in Hampton Roads, Virginia, for its use of USAT’s cashless payment and telemetry capabilities to better serve customers during this year’s challenging winter season. In addition, Peninsula has indicated that it is targeting cashless adoption for 100 percent of its locations by April, 2014.
Jason Banwart, President of Peninsula, stated that USAT’s cashless ePort® and ePort Connect® service have been transformational for his business.
“Cashless payment and telemetry each provide benefits and together, provide an even stronger business experience for Peninsula and our customers,” stated Banwart. “For example, the web-based remote monitoring and sales reporting offered as part of ePort Connect and USAT’s seamless integration with vending management system provider, VendSys, for more detailed logistical information, recently helped us serve a number of customers--healthcare, manufacturing and educational facilities--that were impacted by the wave of snow and ice storms in our area. Daily reports on our machines via email allowed our team to stay in motion; and, by studying sales activity, we were able to flag issues, prioritize and react to ensure that these customers were well-stocked. I can’t imagine operating in a world where a business didn’t have this type of valuable information.
“Beyond the clear benefits of telemetry, we have always viewed cashless through the eyes of the consumer. A large number of our customers don’t carry cash like they did in the past,” continued Banwart. “Cashless ensures that we’re addressing this important set of consumers. And, the added convenience factor drives consumer satisfaction, which for Peninsula, has been an enormous factor in retaining accounts and winning new business. We value our relationship with USAT and look forward to growing with them as Peninsula expands its business in Hampton Roads, Greater Richmond and surrounding areas.”
Stephen P. Herbert, USAT’s chairman and chief executive officer, added, “Peninsula’s commitment to cashless and its smart use of the USAT ePort Connect platform is a wonderful example of what we believe is an expanding segment of our customer base, small to medium size businesses, that is becoming increasingly aware of cashless payment and its many benefits. In our view, customers like Peninsula are ahead of the adoption curve and we welcome their leadership and vision as USAT continues to drive adoption in the self-serve retail market.”

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs. In this Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo (http://www.CloudComputingExpo.com), moderated by Ashar Baig, Research Director, Cloud, at Gigaom Research, Nate Gordon, Director of T...

Nigeria has the largest economy in Africa, at more than US$500 billion, and ranks 23rd in the world. A recent re-evaluation of Nigeria's true economic size doubled the previous estimate, and brought it well ahead of South Africa, which is a member (unlike Nigeria) of the G20 club for political as well as economic reasons. Nigeria's economy can be said to be quite diverse from one point of view, but heavily dependent on oil and gas at the same time. Oil and natural gas account for about 15% of Nigera's overall economy, but traditionally represent more than 90% of the country's exports and as...

The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...

We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity. Various standards bodies, approaches, and ecosystems are vying for mindshare and positioning for a competitive edge. It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...
