Fulfill environmental requests with Coges Engine and its Eco-recycle functions
25 Jul
2019

The recently published European Directive on plastic has made the environmental responsibility and the correct waste disposal two high priority topics even for the Vending world. Regarding the P.E.T. plastic bottles there aren’t drastic prohibitions, but EU will impose ambitious recycling targets and new manufacturing requirements. EU member states will also be required to take measures able to raise awareness about the correct recycling of this material, such as deposit and bail systems.

The problem of storing waste in the location and the correct start of the treatment process therefore become a necessity for Vending, a need that can be satisfied through compactors and shredders already in the market. These tools offer a great added value thanks to the integration with Coges’ systems: indeed, our company has been offering for some time a technological solution capable of transforming the plastic into an important resource for the vending company through an incentive for final users. In this way they will be stimulated to make a correct recycling process.

The integration between compactors or shredders and the Coges Engine cashless system, compatible with MyKey and Mifare media, makes it possible to satisfy the EU Directive by crediting a bonus to the final users’ cashless wallet for each product recycled in a correct way. The credit that is “refunded” to the user acts as a deposit for the product’s packaging, engaging the consumer in an increasingly ecological behavior and in a smarter management of waste disposal. The integration between cashless readers on the compactors and the Coges Engine payment system present in the Vending machine of the same battery also allows you to credit a bonus only for the waste coming from the same location.

The Eco-recycle functions is already active in Coges Engine systems: use it to reduce space, time and costs dedicated to the waste collection and sorting, to make your location cleaner and tidier and to respond in an efficient way to location and public tenders’ environmental needs.

05 Jul
2019

Smartphone, connectivity, Internet of Things (IoT)… we undoubtedly live in an hyperconnected world in which people and technological devices communicate with each other in a continuous way. Connectivity can simplify our lives and improve our work, included at the vending machine: this is the philosophy adopted by Coges with Nebular, the online service that represents the “digital twin” of Coges Engine payment system. Thanks to the long experience of our company in the design of innovative solutions for the vending market, Nebular is today enhanced with new functions to further improve the professional life of the vending Operator. The changes that affect the new version of Nebular are numerous and involve the most essential elements of vending operation: from the programming of payment systems to the credit refund via cloud, through the update of cash systems’ database, the planogram and online product management.

Technical Portal OnlineRefundProduct DatabaseKeys ManagementDatabase UpdateOpen Payment Platform

The relationship between Coges and its customers continues even after the sale of the product, for this reason we work to guarantee you an efficient management for all your locations. Nebular’s important update takes the technical portal online allowing the creation, the modification and the sending of parameters and configurations to the payment system by remote. It also becomes possible to remotely update the firmware of both the master system and the peripherals and the management of technical faults and alarms by grouping, if necessary, the vending machines according to customized labels and sending to each the changes just made.

We are aware of the delicate role assumed by credit refunds in a vending company, for this reason we have decided to make them even more simple with Nebular, with two already set refund methods (Free sale and Remote Key top-up) and the possibility of checking the refund history at any time. In case of a non-sale it will be possible to send a refund directly from your own office, by associating it with a specific MyKey key that will receive it the next time it is inserted in the key reader: all of this is done without wasting time and without risk of errors due to cash management.

To monitor the performance of vending machines and increase the revenues, Nebular allows you to manage the product database through an intuitive planogram. This solution records transactions in real time for each product, it allows you to obtain a practical report on sales trends and, to give an even more accurate idea of the location trend, it makes available the download of a complete and customized report. Nebular is also compatible with the main ERPs used in the vending market: the Operator will find in real time all the data recorded in the same menus that he usually uses.

With Nebular new version, Coges has made even more smarter the famous MyKey key. Thanks to Nebular, it is now possible to view remotely and in real time the credit of each Key, as well as the history of all sales and top-ups made from each individual Key.

At the same time Nebular makes the peripherals for cash recognition smarter, incorporating the remote update of Unica change-giver coin databases, and the banknotes database of Creos and Lithos banknote readers, allowing the acceptance of new cash and preventing the fakes circulation.

Nebular is designed to offer more and more payment methods to final users: for this reason it includes an open payment platform that will also be able to integrate credit cards and apps belonging to third parties, in addition to the already supported Pay4Vend smartphone app. Enter a new era of vending management thanks to Nebular, the most complete and efficient connectivity solution on the market.
