Isochron Unveils New Service

Isochron Inc., a provider of machine-to-machine solutions for the vending industry, announced Thursday the introduction of VendCast, a vending management service that integrates hardware and software technology. According to Isochron, the new product will help vending operators manage their machines like a retail store. In addition to keeping tabs on what's in stock across the operator's entire machine base, VendCast can track which items are in demand and which machines are out-of-order. Isochron said that the product also enables operators to interact directly with their consumers or develop customer loyalty and rewards programs. Isochron is a privately held firm headquartered in Austin, Texas.
