American Green’s system is unique for three important reasons, all of which were on display in the form of it’s American Green’s patent-protected process, created to enable the vending of controlled or age-restricted products has been designed to be ‘as good as a human.’
And lastly, to demonstrate the strength and versatility of American Green’s system, there were machines from three manufacturers side by side, something that has not been seen in the relatively new market of smart vending combined with secure purchasing.
The biometric verification portion of the system is utilized by the US military and many large corporations who require top-notch security for identification prior to entering a facility. In addition to all of this, the entire system can be accessed via an app which allows remote purchasing in participating machines. Upon arrival at the physical machine, patrons login to their account, verify with the biometric control, and simply display the QR code on their smartphone to retrieve the product or products they purchased.
“American Green and our technology partner, PanPacific, have been working non-stop to improve this process for over four years now. The adoption of smart phones, familiarity with apps on those phones, and improvement in related vending technologies have now merged with a concept that the public could easily grasp before but are much more prepared to use now,” said David Gwyther, chairman and acting president at American Green. “Creating a process that allows flexibility in the machine selected by clients yet permitting verified accounts to login to the machines of any companies who choose to participate will grow adoption faster and simplify use by all parties. A baseball fan could buy a beer at the game in New York and cannabis from a dispensary in California the next day through the same app utilizing their verified account. This is a huge step forward for smart retail and the automated sale of regulated products,” Mr. Gwyther concluded.
