What are some ideal locations for Stockwell?  

  • Semi-public areas with high traffic or captive audiences. Think of places like car dealerships, hospitals, airports, college campuses, etc. Or, you can add Stockwell to an existing micro market account to extend your markets’ footprint. 

How does Stockwell recognize which products are taken? 

  • Stockwell uses computer vision technology via 9 strategically placed cameras to see what product was selected from which area. 

Do customers need to scan the products on the cashless device?  

  • No, the customer does not have to scan any product on the Pico payment terminal itself. They simply authorize payment, pick a product, close the door, and walk away! 

Is Stockwell refrigerated or ambient?

  • It’s both! Stockwell has a refrigerated section on the right side and an ambient section on the left side. This allows you to stock both refrigerated and pantry items, which gives you more opportunities to sell. 

Can someone grab refrigerated and ambient products during one transaction?

  • Yes – Stockwell does close the transaction very quickly after both doors are closed, so a customer would need to open the second door before the first one closes. Or, you can open one side immediately after closing the other. 

Can Stockwell replace my vending machines? 

  • Potentially! Stockwell is competitively priced compared to purchasing a new vending machine. It also allows you to elevate a typical vending machine with a cleaner aesthetic and more product variety. Depending on the location and the clientele, it may be the perfect replacement for a vending machine.

What products work well in Stockwell?

  • Typical vending products work great. However, Stockwell is also suited to providing high margin items that don’t traditionally fit inside vending machine spirals.

Does Stockwell work with other 365 technology?

  • Yes, Stockwell is part of the 365 Connected Campus, so you can offer it alongside micro markets, smart coolers, or even traditional vending machines.
