365 Retail Markets Announces the 365 Connected Campus℠ with Global Market Accounts

Troy, MI – August 15, 2017 – 365 Retail Markets, the global leader in MicroMarket technology – offering a best in class POS platform for the vending, foodservice and hospitality industry – proudly announces its new Connected Campus℠.

“Our success in MicroMarkets gave 365 a view of the marketplace from a unique lens,” said Joe Hessling, CEO of 365 Retail Markets, “It allowed us to see what the consumer wanted, what the operators wanted and what the host company wanted. The Connected Campus is a culmination of that experience. It can combine ease of use for the end user, aggregate the operational and support function for the operator and packages it in one place for the host companies.”

365’s new account system, GMA, is central to the Connected Campus platform and will revolutionize the way customers make purchases! GMA allows customers to seamlessly checkout at any 365 MicroMarket, Nanomarket, Vending, or Dining solution that you operate, all while only having to manage one account!

  • The ultimate Connected Campus can use all 365 devices that you operate, whether they’re in the same building or across the country
  • GMA eliminates the 7 MicroMarket MSL with all your markets will be linked together
  • Clients can be offered the industry leading Connected Campus experience for their MicroMarket, Nanomarket, Vending, or Dining needs

365 Retail Markets Launches Innovative nanomarket™ Kiosk

 

Troy, MI – April 4, 2017 – 365 Retail Markets is excited to announce the release of its latest self-checkout kiosk, the nanomarket™. The 365 nanomarket™ is a modern, tablet-based device for smaller populations, allowing operators to expand into locations that were previously cost prohibitive. Operators will enjoy the ability to quickly and easily open new locations without sacrificing the quality and innovation they have come to expect from 365’s suite of products.

“365 Retail Markets has always been committed to helping our customers realize new opportunities in the marketplace,” said Joe Hessling, CEO of 365 Retail Markets. “The nanomarket™ is our clearest expression of that goal. While providing a lower cost of entry, we did not set out to simply create a less expensive kiosk. The nanomarket™ is packed full of new features that delight clients and lay the groundwork for 365’s direction in the years ahead.”

Since hitting the market, the nanomarketTM has been well received by Operators and end users alike. Operators are surprised by the features that come standard in such a small, sleek package, including:

  • P2PE credit card encryption – clients and consumers alike can be confident that their transactions are secure. This makes conversations with client IT departments much easier!
  • NFC Support – operators are able to accept mobile wallets such as Apple Pay and Android Pay.
  • 2D barcode scanner – consumers can scan products as well as present the 365Pay app’s QR code to identify themselves at the nanomarket™ and utilize global market accounts!
  • Quickpay – check out without touching a single button! Simply scan your product, followed by the 365Pay app QR code, or barcoded card and check out in three seconds or less!
  • Search Button and Nested Menus – merchandise an unlimited number of non-barcoded items and allow consumers to search for items by name or barcode at any time!
  • Built-in Cellular Service – an optional feature operators may order, allows the nanomarket™ to arrive connected to the Internet out of the box! Stock a handful of nanomarkets™ at your warehouse and install the same day you win the deal! Operators can also use Wi-Fi where available.
  • Self-Staging and Diagnostics – configure new locations online then stage the kiosk in five minutes using the new provisioning app built into every nanomarket™!
  • Email and SMS receipts – now any consumer, including anonymous credit card purchasers can receive receipts. Account users can also see purchase history directly in the 365Pay app.

Powered by 365’s newest software platform, the nanomarketTM represents the future of innovation at 365 and is the gateway to the 365 Connected CampusSM.

The 365 nanomarket™ comes complete with a drill template in every box, making it quick and easy to affix the nanomarket™ to any countertop or floating shelf. A carefully crafted locking ring enables the nanomarket to have a sturdy connection to the counter while still maintaining a polished and finished look.

“The nanomarket™ provides a glimpse into where we’re headed at 365. While so much of the nanomarket™ will be familiar to our operators, there are several underlying benefits that will only begin to reveal themselves over time.” said Ryan McWhirter, Director of Product. “Our vision of a connected campus, allowing one consumer account to traverse markets, vending and dining starts with nanomarket™. Where it ends, we’ll see.”

The 365 nanomarket™ is available now. For more information or to order yours, contact our dedicated sales team at sales@365smartshop.com or call (888) 365-7382.

365 Retail Markets Named to Inc. 5000 List of Fastest-Growing Private Companies

365 Named to Inc. 5000 List For Second Year in a Row

365 Retail Markets ranked No. 1,094 on the exclusive list achieving 354% revenue growth from 2012-2015.

 August 31, 2015: Troy, MI Inc. magazine has ranked 365 Retail Markets, the global leader in MicroMarket technology – offering a best-in-class POS platform for the vending, foodservice and hospitality industry, No. 1,094 on its 35th annual Inc. 5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America’s independent entrepreneurs. Companies such as Yelp, Pandora, Timberland, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, LinkedIn, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained early exposure as members of the Inc. 5000.

“The past 12 months have been a whirlwind of activity for the entire 365 team, including myself. Exposure from national news coverage, television, radio, and now recognition for the second year in a row by Inc. tops off our year of accomplishments,” says 365 Retail Markets CEO, Joe Hessling. “It is clear that self-service technology will progress as a rapid-growth sector, and 365 will continue leading our industry with the best products, best team, and best customers.”

The 2016 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at Inc.com and with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc. (available on newsstands August 23rd) is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. Since 2012, 365 Retail Markets has expanded their product and service offerings, achieved a 354% increase in revenue, and has added 80+ new jobs.

“The Inc. 5000 list stands out where it really counts,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “It honors real achievement by a founder or a team of them. No one makes the Inc. 5000 without building something great – usually from scratch. That’s one of the hardest things to do in business, as every company founder knows. But without it, free enterprise fails.”

“As good as it feels to tell yourself and others in the company that we are doing great, a third party validation of company performance from Inc. is something to really be proud of.” said Hessling.

Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000.
