USAT Coffee Delivery Gets Digital Upgrade

eTailers Offer Instant Coffee Subscriptions

USA Technologies (USAT), a cashless payments and software services company for the self-service retail market, has announced upgrades to its Seed Delivery software.

The software enables office coffee delivery businesses to get rid of paper-based invoices and replace them with iPads — as well as exchange postage with email, and phone ordering with self-service Web ordering — allowing its customers to cut operational costs. For customers with both vending and OCS businesses, Seed Delivery is available as an add-on to Seed Office, USA Technologies’ cloud-based vending management system.

The recent enhancements, which will be revealed during NAMA’s Coffee Tea & Water Show (CTW) in Anaheim, California later on this month, include enhanced billing tools that allow operators to customize their invoice format, payment terms, and early payment discount for each customer and location. Operators will also be able to create invoices, view their invoice status, check the payment status of sent invoices, view outstanding balances and more.

In addition, a bulk management of delivery operations feature (Seed Delivery Import Wizard) provides the ability to export and import lists of customer information, orders, pricing plans, templates, and invoices.

“We believe the office coffee and delivery industry continues to be in a state of growth, powered by innovation,” Maeve Duska, senior vice president of marketing at USA Technologies, said in a press release. “More and more, self-serve retail operators are expanding their services into coffee and looking for processes that integrate seamlessly into their existing businesses. We are thrilled to continue to expand our market-leading, next-generation services to simplify billing and operations and offer more streamlined processes that we believe provide the opportunity to increase efficiency and cut costs for our operators. We look forward to showcasing this modern, innovative, end-to-end solution during the Coffee Tea and Water Show this month.”
