MALVERN, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
USA Technologies, Inc. (USAT) (“USAT”), a premier payment technology service provider of integrated cashless and mobile transactions in the self-service retail market, today announced an expanded agreement with Jackson Brothers of the South (“Jackson Brothers”), a full service vending, catering, and food service company based in Springfield, MO. Through the agreement, USAT is upgrading an additional 750 machines to USAT’s state-of-the-art cashless technology platform and telemetry services. Included in the upgrade are 100 ePort® Interactives, USAT'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 USAT, 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 through USAT’s NFC-capable ePort Connect® and ePort Interactive cashless payment systems.
“Today’s consumers are all about cashless and mobile payments, and fewer and fewer are actually carrying cash,” said Darwin Bickford, CEO, Jackson Brothers. “Upgrading our machines to USAT’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. With USAT, the deployment has been seamless and we’ve already seen cashless usage happening on 37 percent of our machines, which is incredible.”
Jackson Brothers has also signed up for USAT's Premium Support Service offerings, which gives the company access to USAT’s bundle of best-in-class support services including deployment planning, project management, installation support, training, tools specific to the marketing of cashless programs, and marketing support/consultation, mobile payment and loyalty programs and, in some cases, funding support.
"The cashless revolution is upon us,” said Tom Jones, executive vice president, Sales, USA Technologies. “Jackson Brothers is yet another example of how smart, forward-thinking, and innovative companies are embracing our next-generation payment platform to more effectively manage their business. We’re thrilled to expand our relationship with them to bring cashless payment options to every one of their machines.”
