Yoke Payments, an award-winning point-of-sale software and inventory management system, needed to come up with a locking solution it could offer its clients who were looking for more security within their micro-markets. They found that partner in TriTeq Lock and Security. Their electronic locking security system and tracking for vending machines and coolers is unparalleled within the industry and limits the chances of theft, which was exactly what the team at Yoke Payments needed.
Here’s how the system works: customers are first required to purchase the products of their choice through Yoke’s self-checkout terminal or mobile app. Once the transaction is complete and the system accepts the payment, it automatically unlocks the cooler door and grants customers 15 seconds to grab the item(s) they purchased.
Deb DeMerritte of Simply Pure Markets has been a customer of Yoke Payments for three years and pioneered the “smart fridge” concept. Her nine locations are paired with the Yoke and TriTeq integration to lock their glass door merchandisers.
“The TriTeq and Yoke teams made it come together,” DeMerritte said. “Yoke’s system speaks with the TriTeq software and it works. We’ve essentially created a smart fridge vending machine.”
She uses different size glass front coolers, depending on the size of the location.
“We attach the TriTeq locks to the coolers,” she said. “We then have a WiFi module the system speaks to, which then connects to either the location’s SSID, or we set it up with a modem and it communicates via that.”
With this partnership, customers are now able to get a top of the line payments solution with amazing security control for all micro-market concepts.
“We always have our customers’ needs in mind,” stated Ben Thomas, vice president of dreams at Yoke. “No request is out of the ordinary and our goal is to help maximize our customer’s growth potential through our technology platform and the strong business partnerships we’ve created.”
