The 'minimum contact' to 'contact-less' hygiene practices has been in news for a while now after the Coronavirus outbreak. Now is the turn of Vendekin, a Pune-based company to introduce a smart vending technology to dispense Hand Sanitizers and other hygiene products through vending machines with minimal contact. Again, it aims at combating the Coronavirus. This is to be done by partnering company with Instor India, leading retail fixtures manufacturer and exporter.
Considering the present scenario, this is a vital measure to combat the virus. It aims to offer an easy way to maintain basic personal hygiene and reduce the spread of the pandemic. Since the outbreak of the coronavirus, a plethora of hygiene products and advisories have proliferated to fight the widespread of the disease. Since crowded places are the most to be affected by the virus, hence the sanitizer dispensing machine is ideal to produce at this point of time.
Speaking about the collaboration, Mr. Manu Sharma, President, Instor by Kider India Pvt. Ltd., highlighted,“We could see the need to contribute as a socially responsible corporate, to support the effort to fight the current pandemic. Our manufacturing capabilities along with Vendekin’s deep domain technology enabled us to develop an intelligent sanitizer vending machine equipped with digital payment and touch-free dispensation. We are extremely thankful to Vendekin, as quick and swift actions like these can have huge impact and can safeguard health and safety of our country’s citizens.”
Speaking about the latest introduction, Mr. Aroon Khatter, Founder & CEO, Vendekin Technologies, highlighted, “To enable citizens to have ‘just in time’ seamless 24/7 access for personal hygiene products is the need of the hour. We view this challenge as an opportunity for us to use our technology for the greater good and this drives our entire team at Vendekin to work overtime to deliver this at the earliest. We are grateful to have a committed partner like Instor, driven by Mr. Sudhir Mehta and Mr. Manu Sharma who have given this project a high priority considering the situation.”
The coming together of these two companies in this partnership is surely going to benefit the purpose. The primary aim is to first provide self-service unmanned retail solutions to grow the Vcommerce ecosystem in India and globally, and then diversify and provide unmanned retail solutions to all industries with 'vendable' products.
The outbreak of Coronavirus has brought along some much needed hygiene practices all over the world which is useful not only from the pandemic point of view but also in general. The outbreak has been able to successfully shed some light on our everyday hygiene practice and the importance of it in our everyday lives.
