CORONA, Calif., Jan. 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- AVT, Inc. (OTC Markets: AVTC) (www.autoretail.com), a leading manufacturer of automated retailing centers and custom vending machines, announced that it will include mobile payment acceptance as a standard feature on all their 2016 machines.

The company has partnered with PayRange, the world's easiest to use mobile payment solution. With PayRange, customers can install a free app that will automatically connect to the machine. The user simply "swipes" their smart phone to make a purchase.

Now, owners of AVT machines will be able to create conversions, build excitement and increase sales with unique marketing programs, as well as activate rewards and promotions to get users to keep coming back.

With a unique management console, AVT's new systems for 2016 will also provide real-time insight on user behavior and product inventory, allowing owners and operators to make informed and strategic decisions about future sales and deployments.

"With the FDA compliance rules coming into effect, now is the time for vending operators to upgrade their systems with the new, markedly better technologies that are available," said Wayne Salvino, President of AVT, Inc. "At AVT, we continue to innovate and provide the newest technologies and features, at the best possible value. We make it easy for operators to stay ahead in the vending industry, by offering systems and solutions that out-perform the competition."
