I-Key Types

Cash Value Key An electronic 'bank' which can be loaded with a cash value by inserting coins into a machine equipped with a coin mechanism or remotely at a separate re-charging station, and thereafter allows purchases to be made by deducting the value of the vend made from the onboard electronic bank.
Fixed Credit Key The key is pre-loaded with a number of credits, each of which allows a single 'free' vend to be made from the machine. When the credits are exhausted the key is simply thrown away.
Frequently used on new installations to grant users a number of free tasting opportunities to promote brand loyalty thereafter.
Hospitality Key Can be programmed to grant users a controlled number of free vends per day, therefore providing total cost control in the workplace environment whilst still retaining the goodwill of staff who may have previously been used to a total free vend facility. Discount Key Enables privileged users to take advantage of an entirely different pricing structure within the machine, which, unlike most systems, can relate to all or just a selected few products on offer.
Discount privileges can also be made available to snack and can products when machines are connected together.
Free Vend Key Provides master override facility and makes all products available without any charge whilst inserted into the machine
