VENRAY, The Netherlands, August 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Producer and inventor US Candy Network joins forces with Regout Group
The mobile vending machine MARV (Media & Advertising Racing Vehicle), that offers a thousand possibilities to customers, is a worldwide hit. All major companies and store chains in the world are calling Dutch producer US Candy Network (USCN) to order one. To supply 6100 machines in the next two years USCN has joined forces with the Regout Group.
The Regout Group already supplied telescopic slides for MARV and will produce the base modules as well. When owner Joost van Luyken saw the machine he got so exited that he wanted to become a partner in its further development.
Luyken has joined USCN as CEO and will lead the company together with Kersten, who remains Executive Chairman. "We have joined our forces to introduce MARV into the market. We welcome the knowledge of the Regout Group," Chantal Kersten of USCN says.
MARV was launched in January this year during the worlds largest sweets and snacks fair ISM in Cologne Germany. That was such a success that afterwards movie companies, supermarkets, toy stores and breweries from all over the world wanted to have one. "Before the fair MARV had caused a craze in advertising, but afterwards even more. We could supply 20.000 machines if we'd wanted to," Kersten says. The company will be interviewed soon by Donald Trump jr., which will be broadcasted on TV in the fall at Fox and Bloomberg.
MARV is the future in marketing and media advertising. The machine interacts with customers through different sounds. It has a 21 or 46 inch touch screen where they can order, view movies, print coupons, get a discount, play games or plug in their iPad. MARV can contain all kinds of wrapping: cool, frozen or keeping warm, all open to advertising. It offers all possible payment through internet or smart phone.
The machines are custom made. MARV's are transformed to characters from movies or into corporate design. The hip, tricycle runs electric and can ride in cities, on fairs or even on the beach. The machine uses Microsoft's Kinect 2 system, enabling it to interact and even talk with customers.

When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...

Things are changing so quickly in IoT that it would take a wizard to predict which ecosystem will gain the most traction. In order for IoT to reach its potential, smart devices must be able to work together. Today, there are a slew of interoperability standards being promoted by big names to make this happen: HomeKit, Brillo and Alljoyn. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Adam Justice, vice president and general manager of Grid Connect, will review what happens when smart devices don’t work togethe...
