PORTLAND, Ore., Aug. 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- PayRange Inc., maker of the world's simplest mobile payment solution for machines, has partnered with American Food & Vending (AFV) on an enterprise agreement to deploy PayRange BluKey™ devices across its 50 branches serving 35 markets throughout the United States. This rollout comes on the heels of two separate and highly successful pilot programs conducted by American Food & Vending.
As a company dedicated to providing exceptional customer service, AFV views PayRange as a solution catering to the needs of their users today and into the future. The mobile payment capabilities at the core of the patented PayRange platform are allowing AFV to add cashless payment acceptance to their vending machines without the expense or complexity of installing card readers and network connections. The vending machine only needs the BluKey dongle which installs in seconds. Then using the PayRange App, users make purchases. The App may be funded with credit and debit cards, Apple Pay, Android Pay, coupons, and even payroll deductions.
"We started an initial pilot program with PayRange late last year to see if the good things we'd been hearing would be applicable for our locations and our customers," stated Josh Wells, principal of American Food and Vending. "The initial pilot performed far above our expectations so we asked PayRange to work with us on a second pilot in a different market to validate the results. The second pilot performed just as well, and we were sold on deploying PayRange broadly across the markets we serve."
Beyond cashless payment, user insights provided by the platform are unsurpassed and unprecedented in the vending industry, creating new opportunities to further enhance the customer experience while driving incremental sales through incentives and targeted offers.
PayRange was founded in 2013 by Paresh Patel to provide operators and consumers with the simplest, most accessible mobile payment solution for vending, amusement, laundry and more. Consumers download the free mobile app from either the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store. And with flexible funding options including all major cards, Apple Pay, and Android Pay, consumers are empowered to pay machines with ease. PayRange-enabled machines can be found across the 50 United States and throughout Canada. Find out more at www.payrange.com.
