Commits 100% Connected Machines Featuring Credit/Debit and Mobile Wallet Payments through ePort Connect®; Connects 3,400 Kiosks to USAT's Secure API in Under Three Months
USAT believes that minuteKEY represents the next generation of smart machine technology in unattended retail. Launched in 2008, minuteKEY kiosks utilize robotics and an intuitive user interface, small footprint, and remote diagnostic and troubleshooting capabilities. The minuteKEY kiosks can be found in locations such as Lowe's Home Improvement centers and Wal-Mart stores nationwide, and the company has stated that it has plans to expand to other high traffic locations like grocery stores and convenience stores in the coming months. The company has been named to the Inc. 5000 for three years running.
"As retailers are looking to get the most value from employee spend,
processes like key cutting that once took time and attention away from
high value items are increasingly being automated," said
USAT's Quick Connect enables manufacturers and resellers of kiosks to quickly connect their machines to the ePort Connect service for processing, reporting, loyalty and more. And as a USAT Premium Support Service customer, minuteKEY gained access to a full range of services that include project management and the marketing of cashless capabilities, mobile payment and loyalty programs, as well as funding support to ensure a smart, streamlined rollout and fast returns on the investment.
"As we continue to penetrate additional verticals outside vending,
minuteKEY is an exciting addition to our growing roster of companies
offering ePort Connect's cashless payment systems - whether it be a
retrofit, or a software update using our Quick Connect API - on 100
percent of machines," said
