New! Hyosung ATM Disinfection Kits Coming Soon 1200 800 Gad Vending

The COVID-19 pandemic has heightened public demand for enhanced user experiences. With customer safety being one of our top priorities, we developed industry-leading disinfection protection for the company’s ATMs to help in the fight against the spread of infectious diseases like COVID-19.

DISINFECTION OFFERINGS
Starting Fall 2020, disinfection upgrade kits will be available for Hyosung ATMs. We have chosen to address customer safety with installation services and LED lights. Each disinfection upgrade kit will be installed by GAD Vending certified technicians in our Midwest service area. Upgrades are by appointment. Each kit includes the following features:
  • Silver Ion Antimicrobial Touchscreen
  • Silver Ion Antimicrobial Keypad (plus function keys if required)
  • Violet Blue LED Sterilization Lights

Utilizing silver ion technology, which provides a 99.9% microbe growth reduction rate, Hyosung’s antimicrobial touchscreen and keypad upgrades are made from EPA-approved products that provide permanent protection by continuously inhibiting the growth of microbes such as bacteria, fungi and viruses.

For further protection, the upgrade kit also features violet blue LED lights to disinfect the most common ATM touch points including the touchscreen and keypad providing 99% sterilization. Violet blue LED light was selected because unlike UV light, it is harmless to humans and is already commonly used as a disinfectant in the medical field. This unique two-step approach provides superior protection for Hyosung ATM users.

ANTIMICROBIAL COATING SERVICE NOW AVAILABLE

In addition to the disinfection upgrade kits, Hyosung is announcing a new service for existing ATMs to apply an antimicrobial coating that will protect ATM surfaces. Certified technicians will apply the coating to ensure the ATM continues to function properly and recommend reapplying after six months.

Unlike solutions promoted by others, Hyosung’s disinfection solutions are easily implemented and do not change how the user interacts with the ATM. Offering the broadest coverage and longest-lasting protection, Hyosung has developed the most comprehensive approach for ATM safety in the industry.

Please contact your Hyosung Sales Representative or Certified Dealer to determine which options are right for you.

How To Add a Machine to Maximize High Traffic Areas

How To Add a Machine to Maximize High Traffic Areas 750 520 Gad Vending

Own a commercial facility? Bar? Restaurant? Mall? Retail Store? Arcade? High foot traffic area? Looking to gain more cash flow without adding staff? Need something socially distancing that can be easily cleaned?

It is expensive to get people to show up at your facility. You work at advertising, marketing, customer service, cleanliness, social distancing regulations, best product mix and everything else to get and retain customers. So anything you can do to further engage – and profit from – your traffic is critical.

Add strategic machines to solve problems and create ROI!

ATM

A free standing ATM in a high traffic area can = profit!

  • You can charge a transaction fee.
  • You can reduce credit card fees by encouraging customers to pay in cash.
  • You can reduce employee time by allowing customers to self service for cash.
  • You can add additional revenue to other games, pinball or machines with cash access.

What should you consider? ATM’s generally cash flow in one or more of the following conditions:

  • 150 people through the doors daily,
  • when you are encouraging cash tips to staff,
  • when it’s cheaper to have an unattended operation or unattended during off hours,
  • and/or when there are cash based services nearby.

CLAW/CRANE GAMES

Claw (Crane) games with non-ticket redemption (no tickets to mess with) is an ideal addition to a family based establishment. These are the cabinet games with stuffed animals with a movable claw that picks up a toy and delivers to the player.

  • Ideal for a restaurant waiting area where families gather.
  • Add to an arcade, game room or family lounge area.
  • Stand alone machine in a pizza restaurant.

To maximize profit – keep you claw game maintained and well stocked. Keep your machine clean – not only by the restocking vendor but employees should clean between every patron. Post a hand sanitizer nearby.

GAD Vending sells and maintains claw machines in MO, KS, NE and IA. GAD Vending does not stock claw games but we can suggest companies that do.

DIGIAL MUSIC/JUKEBOX

No great party experience is complete without great music!

The new digital music jukeboxes have amazing capabilities that add to your user immersive experience – and can reduce expenses.

Digital music can be a new profit center:

  • Allow users to be the DJ and pay for their favorite tracks (and associated music videos) to play.
  • Run specials through your music software.
    • Promote specials
    • Tease holiday events
    • Pop Up specials
  • Sell advertising.
  • Appeals to all generations. The online music catalogs, along with associated video, is extensive.

Digital music software can reduce costs:

  • Bundles your trivia games into your software cost.
  • Supports karaoke.
  • Tracks your music play.
    • Music licensing companies assume you are playing music 100% of the time to 100% of your occupancy. Digital music tracks the exact songs played and creates a digital report so you pay on what you play.
  • Pre-programs available to eliminate DJ’s.

Digital music adds energy to unexpected places:

  • Add a digital jukebox to the front door of your retail store. Instead of elevator music, this adds the option to change music styles as you choose – or as your customers choose on their phone.
  • Add a digital jukebox in an employee lounge area. GAD Vending can program a free play option.
  • Add a digital jukebox to a restaurant/bar that changes from Baby Boomers to Millenial over the course of the evening.

Music to your ears? GAD Vending knows digital music and speaker installation.

VENDING MACHINES

Vending machines allow the owner to provide refreshment options without adding employees.

Try a mixed product vending machine – one machine offering drinks and snacks. A healthy option vending machine. Coffee vending machine. Or a simple bottle water vending machine. Whatever your customers are most looking for. This can free up employees to wait on customers with more complex needs.

Add vending machines in a high traffic area like by restrooms, lounge areas or break rooms. Anywhere customers or employees look to rest for a moment.

Add customer confidence! Use touchless payment – and even touchless ordering – using a smartphone app. This allows customers the cleanest, least touch options.

GAD Vending sells and repairs vending machines. Our warehouses have vending machines in stock with parts to configure a machine that best fits your needs. We have sales and service personnel in Kansas City, Omaha and Des Moines.

GOLDEN TEE

Just like with a claw game for kids – Golden Tee is an ideal stand alone game machine for adults.

Golden Tee is available in both commercial and home use versions. And, Golden Tee has a long established software upgrade schedule.

Add a single Golden Tee game to an entry way, low use/high visibility area.  Golden Tee is essential to an arcade, game room, pinball area. Add Golden Tee tournaments with their worldwide software support.

MONEY CHANGERS

Money changers are for customers that need to change bill-to-bill, bill-to-coin, pay stations and bill/coin counters. Add next to an ATM to give your customers self service capabilities.

Concerned about money changer and ATM security? Ask GAD Vending for security suggestions (we don’t publish security suggestions!)

If you have an unattended business like a car wash, coin operated laundry, or arcade, you need GAD Vending. GAD Vending inventories new money handling machines in our warehouses in Omaha, Des Moines and Kansas City. Our service techs also have parts to fix money changers.
