With the implementation of the new NAMA standard on VDI VMS/MMS
integration, USA Technologies now has the ability to accelerate the
integration of Seed Markets with micro markets on which the NAMA
standard has been implemented, as the standard eliminates delays
stemming from any unique development work that would otherwise be
required to integrate Seed Markets with micro markets that do not comply
with the standard. This standard is being used for additional Seed
Markets customer integrations, including Vendors
Exchange International
, which is expected to be completed during Q2
of calendar year 2019.

Last year, USAT completed the acquisition of Cantaloupe Systems, which
includes its Seed Office and Seed Pro services, adding logistics,
dynamic route scheduling, automated pre-kitting, responsive
merchandising, inventory management, warehouse and accounting management
to its existing portfolio of cashless payment, loyalty and consumer
engagement services. The combined portfolio is designed to provide an
enterprise system for self-service unattended retail businesses. The
expansion of Seed Markets further extends USAT’s enterprise offering for
self-service unattended retail businesses.
