USA Technologies, Inc., a premier payment technology service provider of integrated cashless and mobile transactions in the self-service retail market, today announced the expanded agreement with A&A Vending Services, a Canteen franchisee.

USAT is currently upgrading 1,200 of the company’s machines to its cutting-edge cashless technology platform and telemetry services, enabling the company to track the acceptance of cash, debit/credit, and mobile wallet payments such as Android Pay and Apple Pay via its NFC-capable ePort Connect cashless payment system.

As of now, nearly 520 of the machines connected in four months, A&A is showing promising early results.

“For the past 20 years, we have built our company name on providing outstanding service by listening to the needs of our customers,” said Les Perry, Owner, A&A Vending Services. “More and more of our customers are looking to make contactless purchases from our machines, so we realized that transitioning to cashless wasn’t something we could put off any longer. USA Technologies has been guiding us through the process, offering insight and support to ensure our financial commitment pays off as quickly as possible. We are excited by the early traction and look forward to continued results like these as we move to 100 percent cashless on every machine.”

Also, A&A has signed up for USAT’s Premium Support Service offerings, including its model market program, which provide companies access to a bundle of best-in-class support services including deployment planning, project management, installation support, training, the marketing of cashless, marketing support, mobile payment and loyalty programs and funding support.

“A&A is a perfect example of the a positive benefits retailers can realize as they move from a primarily cash-based business to cashless,” said Jim Turner, vice president of Deployment Services, USA Technologies. “Our approach insures that deployment is done in a way that makes sense based on the specific needs of the business. By implementing smart, strategic deployment programs through Premium Support Services, companies like A&A not only capture more purchases by consumers, but are running their business in a more efficient way.”
