Selecta Sweden has released two new ‘smart fridge’ unattended retail solutions for workplaces: Selecta Deli and Selecta Minicooler.
According to Selecta, the solutions are intended as flexible, 24/7 catering solutions for workplaces and other locations where traditional vending or catering solutions are not suitable.
The Selecta Deli solution is a self-service catering system that offers a range of fresh and convenient food, salads, sandwiches, snacks, coffee and chilled drinks at the workplace, providing an unattended alternative to kiosks and small canteens. Employees can pay for products by a credit card or through a mobile app.
Meanwhile, the Selecta Minicooler is intended for small offices and workplaces with fewer people. The solution is a small fridge offering simple snacks and chilled drinks, and is a solution for workplaces where traditional vending solutions wouldn’t make sense or wouldn’t physically fit.
Unattended retail solutions for the workplace such as micro markets are growing in popularity, as they are able to offer a wider range of products than traditional vending machines and are open 24/7, making them a potential alternative to fully-staffed canteens.
Andreas Fetscher, head of business development at Selecta Sweden, said: “At Selecta, we are focusing on innovation and bringing new solutions to better serve our clients.
“Companies are increasingly looking for new, flexible solutions to cater to the needs of their workforce and finding unattended alternatives to kiosks and canteens, as their employees return to the work.
“With our new family of smart fridges, we are launching a revolutionary way to eat or drink at work, at any time. The new fridges can be tailored for customer needs, and are super easy to use with no waste.”
