How many times have you walked up to a vending machine only to
find that what you wanted was not available? Or perhaps you drive
around looking for the perfect parking place and realized you
didn't have any change for the meter? These are just a couple of
places that M2M is changing the point-of-sale (POS) world.
Connected, smart vending machines can make sure they stay full of
your favorite snacks and even take your credit card. Perhaps real
soon they'll allow you to use your mobile device for payment.
Parking meters too, are taking new forms of payment and could
accept payment from a mobile device in the future.
M2M promises to make life easier and this vertical segment is an
excellent fulfillment of that expectation. At RACO, we are helping
partners introduce exciting new products in this space almost daily
and can support the unique needs of mobile P.O.S. applications. Our
systems and network security meet the highest levels required for
mobile wireless transactions
