FAQ

What sizes do your machines come in?

IVM carries one style of machine with external dimensions of 76”H x 43”W x 36"D. We also have two different types of locker programs for both variable and compact items that are either too large or small to fit into the machines.

How many products can you fit in a machine?
This will ultimately depend upon the size of the item, and how many of each arerequired to avoid stock outs.  We build our machines to accommodate the needs of our customers, so we will do our best to collectively build a machine that will maximize the space within.
I have international locations, can IVM support them?
Absolutely.  IVM currently has equipment in 30 foreign countries in all areas around the world.  We are not restricted to any location, nor have we been told we can’t supply our program to any country.
