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.
In an effort to continually improve the service we provide you, we will be upgrading our server and moving to a more robust and dynamic database system. This upgrade will dramatically increase reliability and provide instant visibility of vend transactions, instant implementation of restrictions, and instant machine access for new users. In order to provide this upgrade, IVM will be having a planned system outage on:

February 17th, 2018
10am-10pm EST

During this outage, machines without the offline vending configuration will not be able to vend. In addition, many of our other services, including scheduled email and reporting, RealTime, and our SFTP Server will be offline or unavailable.

Those machines with the offline vending configuration will continue to vend and store transactions until the system becomes available. However, restrictions will not be enforced during this time period.

If you would like to enable offline vending during this period, or wish to confirm your machine(s) settings, please contact IVM Customer Support.

We apologize for any disruption that this outage may cause but we feel that this upgrade is necessary to continue to improve the services that we provide. We will continue to provide you with any updates as they become available.

Your continued partnership is very important to us here at IVM and if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to us by emailing or calling 800-676-8432.
