Feb 12, 2013 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) --
USA Technologies, Inc., a provider of wireless, cashless payment and M2M telemetry solutions for small-ticket, self-serve retailing industries, has signed a new agreement with Ice House America, a manufacturer and an operator of ice vending machines.
The agreement covers the use of USAT's ePort and ePort Connect cashless payment and telemetry services for Ice House America's units located throughout the US and establishes USAT as a preferred partner.
The announcement follows on the heels of Ice House America's recently created franchise program to further expand its existing network of over 2,400 independently owned locations, which collectively produce over 1 billion pounds of ice per year.
"Ice House America recognized the need for ensuring that our operators are equipped with industry-leading cashless payment capabilities as more consumers opt for the convenience of using their credit, debit and prepaid cards to pay for purchases," said Pete Cotter, CEO of Ice House America. "Our goal is to offer USAT's service to the entire Ice House America network to begin promoting adoption of cashless payments."
Michael Lawlor, USAT's senior vice president of sales and business development, said, "This agreement with Ice House America is a great example of how USAT is reaching beyond traditional vending to leverage the breadth of our cashless payment & telemetry services. In addition, we believe that Ice House America's growing footprint of locations is a great match for USAT's scalable and turnkey service model. We look forward to delivering maximum value to Ice House America as we proceed."
