Advertising is big business especially Digital Out-of-home advertising. DOOH UK sites such as digital billboards are set to grow more than 40 percent between now and 2020 according to Kinetic Worldwide. The outdoor market’s annual sales is currently around £1 Billion and expected to rise by 35 percent by 2020.
Food futurologist @morgainegaye recently commented in the Daily Mail that lifestyles are changing and people are moving away from the ‘three meals a day’ to snacking on the go which will increase demand for vending machines and change what we want to be able to buy from them.
Consumer tastes are changing. Customers are now asking for smaller machines producing great quality drinks.
This trend is reflected in recent EVMMA 2013/14 statistics for the UK. Sales of Espresso semi and fully automatic table top machines in the first half of 2014 exceeded the entire years sales in 2013 –
We have responded to this trend by introducing the Primo.
Bottled water is the leading growth category in soft drinks this year, according to analysts Zenith International. Sales of plain water in the UK in 2013 exceeded 2.1 bn litres!
This increase in bottled water sales inevitably creates an increase in plastic waste and although recycling rates are improving some 5 billion plastic bottles were sent to UK landfill sites last year.
So how can our public sites and workplaces meet this demand whilst still honouring their commitment to green credentials? We are on-hand with the ideal solution – the Azure water machine.
Since the 2012 debut of the award winning Sigma touch, we have not taken our foot off the pedal in continuing machine innovation and development.
In the past two years we have designed and launched three new additional machines, the free standing Sigma Light and Sigma Simplicity with inbuilt advertising screens, and the high-volume Signature table top.
Whilst the range is sleek, innovative and ticks all the latest requirements from our customers, there is one thing that always remains at the forefront of Westomatic machine design – drink quality!
We’ve all been there; whether at work or home we’ve all had that delivery come to our door damaged or late.
A bad delivery service not only costs UK businesses money but also damages reputation and customer loyalty - aspects of our business we all work incredibly hard to build.
This is exactly why here at Westomatic Vending Services Ltd we have our own trucks, delivering machines free of charge to our customers’ mainland UK depots.
Vendex 2012 was a great show for Westomatic, winning both the ‘Machine Intelligence’ and ‘New Vending Concept’ award. The Sigma Touch has earned industry recognition for its advanced touch screen technology and its additional revenue opportunities with its up-selling advertising capabilities.
