Beep Technologies

The pandemic should have been a boon for unattended retail. Yet it only accounts for 0.5% of global retail spend, and in Japan, the land of Vending Machines, sales plummeted over 35% in 2020. The old model of impulse sales is failing; to thrive in the new normal, unattended needs to re-invent itself to serve a broader audience. 

 

To achieve this, we’re building a unified platform that makes connecting to any unattended touchpoint hassle-free, so business can build better integrated customer experiences. We partner with operators and manufacturers to upgrade both new and existing machines, building a network of expertly maintained touchpoints that retailers tap into through our suite of modern APIs, creating unique cross-platform user experiences for purchases or redemptions - with no sunk costs or hardware experience required.
