USA Technologies and ParLevel Systems Help Drive Greater Benefits for Louisiana Tom's Vending

Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: USAT), (“USAT”), a leader of wireless,
cashless payment and M2M telemetry solutions for small-ticket,
self-serve retailing industries, and ParLevel
Systems, a cutting-edge provider of advanced remote monitoring
solutions, today highlighted Louisiana Tom’s Vending, a full line
vending and office coffee service operator located in Monroe, Louisiana,
for their use of USAT’s “one-stop shop” ePort Connect™ service and
ParLevel System’s remote monitoring services to improve operations and
enhance customer satisfaction.
ParLevel Systems offers a plug-and-play remote monitoring system with a
simple, easy-to-use interface that provides operators with the ability
to do pre-kitting, design routes based on proximity, track route drivers
while they are on the road, receive real-time cash and credit
accounting, develop and adapt plan-o-grams based on sales in each
location, and more.
Using USAT’s ePort Connect service, either as a telemetry-only option or
in conjunction with the ePort™ cashless payment system, USAT customers
like Louisiana Tom’s Vending benefit by being able to utilize services
from ParLevel Systems without the necessity of additional investment in
data collection and transmission software and hardware.
“Louisiana Tom’s is dedicated to providing its customers with the best
possible service and product selection,” said Chad Looney, owner of
Louisiana Tom’s Vending. “We are a long-time customer of USA
Technologies, and we recently decided to add remote monitoring and route
management capabilities to our business. It was important to us that we
work with a company that made implementation easy, provided the latest
and greatest in service features, and could support us with on-site
training. Because we were working with USAT’s open system, we had the
advantage of choice, and selected ParLevel Systems. It was an easy
decision for us. Our existing ePort cashless payment systems in the
field transferred data to ParLevel Systems so seamlessly that we decided
to connect 750 additional machines to USAT’s ePort Connect service in
conjunction with ParLevel Systems’ route management system.”
“In a few short weeks, we have already reduced labor costs dramatically,
eliminated stops and increased sales as a result of greater visibility
into how quickly best-selling products are selling out,” continued
Looney. “Our ability to run our business better through ParLevel
Systems, combined with the added flexibility of USAT’s cashless payment
products and services, is resulting in better service and satisfaction
for our customers. It’s been a great experience—a win-win for us and our
customers. We are looking forward to continuing to expand our base of
networked machines that use products and services of both ParLevel
Systems and USAT.”
ParLevel Systems is a recent addition to USAT’s DEX Partner Program.
USAT’s open, flexible system gives vending operators the ability to
select ParLevel Systems as their primary route management system.
ParLevel Systems is able to seamlessly receive data from a customer’s
existing ePort devices while the customer continues to have access to
USAT’s best-in-class suite of services.
“Working with Louisiana Tom’s Vending has been great,” said Alan Munson,
Chief Commercial Office of ParLevel Systems. “We started connecting the
business, route by route, and the benefits started to happen
immediately. There is nothing more rewarding than to see your client
being proactive to breakdown alerts and optimize product selection, with
the added peace of mind of knowing exactly how much money a driver
collected from each machine, among many other benefits.”

Economics, speed, performance, accessibility, administrative needs and security all play a vital role in dictating your approach to the cloud. Without knowing the right questions to ask, you could wind up paying for capacity you'll never need or underestimating the resources required to run your applications.
