USA Technologies, a payment technology service provider of integrated cashless and mobile transactions in the self-service retail market, has announced an expanded agreement with Jackson Brothers of the South, a full-service vending, catering, and food service company based in Springfield, Missouri.
Through the agreement, USA Technologies is upgrading an additional 750 machines to its state-of-the-art cashless technology platform and telemetry services. Included in the upgrade are 100 ePort Interactives, which is the company’s next-generation, interactive content delivery and payments platform, which will be connected to 100 select Jackson Brothers machines.
Jackson Brothers of the South provides a full line of vending services, micro markets, box lunches, office coffee, and cafe services across southwest and central Missouri, eastern Oklahoma, and southeast Kansas. Through the expanded agreement with USA Technologies, Jackson Brothers can now accept cash, credit/debit cards, and contactless payments, including mobile wallet payments such as Android Pay and Apple Pay on 100 percent of its 1,000 machines.
“Today’s consumers are all about cashless and mobile payments, and fewer and fewer are actually carrying cash,” said Darwin Bickford, CEO of Jackson Brothers. “Upgrading our machines to USA Technology’s ePort Connect and ePort Interactive platforms doesn’t just answer the call from consumers on cashless options for payment. It enables us to streamline efficiencies, better engage with consumers, increase topline sales and capture more revenues.”
