Vendman MD Rob Little was delighted to confirm our sponsorship of The Vendies to be held on 28th June at The Millenium Gloucester, in London ‘Vendman has made its name by giving vending operators complete control over their businesses. We work with our clients every day in pursuit of excellence in vending, so we’re delighted to be Main Sponsor for The Vendies, the awards that recognise and reward excellence. It’s a perfect fit.’ Said Rob.

They haven’t been around for too long, but we couldn’t help noticing that many of our customers choose Parcel Holders to solve their spare parts logistics problems. MD Ed Fraser saw the connection too and he asked us, ‘since so many vending companies log on to Vendman every day, wouldn’t it be great if they could access the Parcel Holders service via Vendman?’ Step One in achieving this was the creation of an API, which stands for Application Programme Interface. Basically, it’s a set of functions and procedures that enable the creation of Apps, which in turn can be used to access the features or data of an operating system, application, or other service. Prior to integrating with Vendman, Parcel … Read More
Looking ahead to 2016, a year or ago, we decided on a theme: At Vendman, 2016 would be our ‘Year of Integration’ Now, as 2016 draws to a close, we can look back and think ‘that was the year of integration that was.’ We’ve announced strategic partnerships with Vianet, Automatic Retailing and Parcel Holders to add valuable, additional ‘power’ to your Vendman software. Matt Lane is MD of Vianet and he described the partnership between two of vending’s leading technology companies as ‘the creation of a new eco-system for vending operators.’ Vendman and Vianet ‘We’re both in the world of connectivity’, Matt said. ‘Vendman connects vending operators to machine data via had-held devices, Vianet does it by telemetry. It made … Read More
… and we’ve landed on Planet Vending! We took a huge leap of faith recently when we invited the press to sit on a crucial meeting we were holding at our HQ with Parcel Holders. Planet Vending Editor Ian Reynolds-Young joined us as we discussed the finer details of our ‘Integration’ collaboration. It could have gone pear-shaped; fortunately it didn’t! You can read Ian’s account of his experience here, on Planet Vending and for once, you can believe all you read in the press…
Zo ja, van harte welkom om Vendman! Wenn ja, willkommen bei Vendman! In fact, wherever in Europe you’re running your business… Welcome to Vendman! As our business grows in mainland Europe, we’ve noticed that the number of visits to our website from beyond Great Britain is rising month-on-month. With customers in Germany, Belgium and Holland already on-board, we’ve been doing our best to establish ourselves in Europe, by attending such events as Venditalia and EU Vend. Additionally, we’ve been delighted to have had articles about us published in that great trade magazine and Internet portal, Vending Report. It suddenly occurred to us that those articles have only been published in German and we thought it made sense to post them … Read More
A few months ago, Janet Wright our Office Manager took part in a once in a lifetime opportunity, to raise money for The Point Foundation Charity. Her and husband John pledged to raise around £1,800 each to give to the charity. Once they both agreed to go ahead with the trek, and them later finding out, ‘Jebel Toubkal is the highest peak in the Atlas Mountains and is the intended goal for thier expedition, standing at 4167 metres high it is the equivalent of over 3.5 times the height of Snowdon.’ It was soon time for training to begin. John and Janet put preparation and started trekking around Derbyshire. At this point they had a month to go before heading out to Morocco. About the Orphanage…. With 700 … Read More

We know you’ll want to join us in congratulating the happy couple and raising a glass: ‘to Isobel, Tom and baby Brody’!
Our own Janet Wright and her husband John have accepted a challenge that will take them both to the limit of their physical resources. The challenge for the rest of us is to back them all the way … FROM ROB LITTLE, MD, VENDMAN It wasn’t too hard for me to admit to myself that my days of climbing serious mountains were over: when I took a close look at what was involved in The Point Foundation Charity Trek, I just had to hold up my hands… But that’s not to say that Vendman won’t be taking part. On the contrary, we’ll be represented on the trek by Janet Wright, our Office Manager, and her husband, John. You can find … Read More
