PG Group signs contract with SB Software

sb-softVending operator PG Group has contracted with SB Software, the makers of Vendmanager, to operate across their machine estate.

Several hundred PG Group machines have been fitted with SBS Databridge telemetry units, and have been rolled out since October 2016. Where additional cashless functionality is required, Nayax units are being integrated into Vendmanager.

Avril Elson, CEO of PG Group, commented: “Vendmanager has been effective from day one. At PG Group we pride ourselves in partnering with premium brands, and working with blue chip clients including Merlin Group and Premier Inns, and the airports at London Heathrow, Gatwick, and Luton. The addition of Vendmanager helps us to go further still. The last 18 months have been huge for us – through controlled growth. I don’t expect the next 18 months to be any quieter, so anything that gives us more control – through visibility – is welcome.”

Malcolm Gough, systems and reporting manager at PG Group, expanded: “With Vendmanager I have absolute confidence in the data that is produced. I know I have the ­­­­­ability to drill down whenever or wherever I need to, in as much detail as I want. We can focus on specific elements of the business, from planogram to route, to warehouse. We are increasing visibility, while improving customer service and efficiency. And this enhances profitability for all.”
