Eseye, a leading global player in managed cellular internet connectivity for M2M IoT devices, is happy to announce its partnership with Datavend, a leading supplier of telemetry solutions to the vending industry.
The partnership will see the businesses collaborate to produce and deploy high quality and affordable vending solutions globally. Datavend, which manages all aspects of the business out of its Sofia HQ, in Bulgaria, will equip its routers with Eseye’s AnyNet SIM card technology, connecting its vending machines and providing global coverage across mobile network providers. The SIM works as an independent and completely agnostic network of networks that gives routing to over 440 cellular network operator partners around the world.
Rebecca Richardson, Sales Manager at Datavend, comments, “Partnering with a business like Eseye will allow us to offer global cellular connectivity as part of our product offering. In the past we have encountered problems with this very issue, but with assistance from Eseye we have tackled these concerns and are now able to offer reliable connectivity within our routers anywhere around the world.”
A key driver in the partnership was to keep the Datavend offering at a low cost, as the business prides itself on its affordable services. Rebecca continues, “The hardware itself is low in cost, therefore it was imperative we found a connectivity solution and partner which would help us maintain the quality of the product, while keeping price low. We found this partner in Eseye, a business which holds similar values to our own.”
Eseye, which was recently included in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Managed M2M Services, is just as pleased with the recent partnership. Nick McNamara, VP Sales Europe at Eseye explains, “The partnership with Datavend allows us great access into a crucial industry. We have a strong existing presence in the vending sector, but working together with a company such as this will open the market up to us further still. Datavend operates in a similar way to Eseye in regards to flexibility and work ethic, something which is so important in collaborations such as this. We are very excited about the future and growing alongside our new partner.”
