AAEON and Kii announce partnership to build IoT smart vending platform

February 3, 2017- AAEON, a manufacturer of industrial computing solutions under the ASUS Group and a member of the Intel Internet of Things Solutions Alliance, is joining forces with Kii, an Internet of Things (IoT) Solution Enablement Platform vendor to unveil the IoT-driven next generation smart vending platforms and solutions. The two companies also work with a tier one manufacturer to provide fully integrated smart vending machines. This multi-pronged partnership between the global organizations brings synergistic expertise and technology together to deliver a cloud-based smart vending platform:

  • AAEON’s smart vending board connects various sensors (i.e. temperature, humidity) and actuators (i.e. motors/coils) within vending machines and kiosks to Kii’s cloud-based smart vending solution.
  • Built on its flagship IoT Solution Enablement Platform, Kii’s cloud-based smart vending software solution provides a multi-stakeholder, rules-driven solution to vending operators and their employees (including refillers and service technicians), to manage, track and optimize their vending operations.
  • Teamed up with AAEON’s smart vending board and Kii’s cloud-based smart vending solution is an integrator and manufacturer (company to be revealed at the NAMA OneShow in April) delivering fully integrated smart vending machines.

AAEON’s vending boards will be pre-integrated with Kii’s software device agents, thereby enabling vending machines and kiosks using AAEON boards to automatically leverage Kii’s smart vending cloud-based solution. This fully integrated smart vending solution is currently available on a limited basis with plans for full market roll-out in April, 2017.
