Bell Canada in collaboration with Coca-Cola Bottling Company and
technology providers cStar Technologies, Kaba Ilco Inc. and RSI
International Systems Inc. today launched Canada's first wireless and
cashless vending machine technology trial at the Ambassador Conference
Resort in Kingston, Ontario.
The 90-day cashless vending machine technology trial is the first in
Canada to combine both mobile phone and card key technologies operating
over a wireless network in the same trial period.
A truly guest centric hospitality service, Ambassador guests can either
swipe their hotel room key card through the vending machine's card
reader or use any mobile phone to directly purchase and enjoy a variety
of Coca-Cola beverages from waters and 100 per cent juices to soft
drinks, juice drinks and ice teas.
Guests that use their hotel room key card or any mobile phone to
purchase Coca-Cola beverages from a cashless vending machine during the
technology trial period will find applicable charges appear on their
invoice at final check-out.
cStar Technologies is providing the real-time wireless data management
system that will allow the cashless vending machine technology trial to
collect and manage purchases from both room key card and mobile phone
users, as well as manage stock, health and welfare of vending machines.
The application supports both attended and unattended Point-of-Sale
