If you factor into this that when people feel appreciated they also work harder, incentives such as offering free beverages can often help to maximise output. The Kenco Cashless Card system, available with the Kenco K Bar 16 from Kafévend, is one such solution that also allows you to keep a strict eye on the budget.
By simply inserting the card into the hot drinks machine and putting in the money, the card charges it with ‘virtual’ cash up to £5. It can be programmed to allow for only a certain amount of free or subsidised drinks per day, offering a convenient way for employers to provide their team with a pre-determined number of refreshments. The card is re-loadable and guaranteed for 100,000 vends.
This system is operational in the Kenco K Bar 16 which has a sleek, contemporary finish designed to seamlessly blend into any office environment. Easy to use, this hot drinks machine has touch sensitive buttons, boasts 16 different selections and is fully automatic. With a capacity of 1200 branded quality drinks, it makes for an ideal addition in any busy location of 35 people or over.
If you order through Kafévend they can have it to you within a week and provide an excellent follow-up service with a call out time of an average 3½ hours, should there be any problems. On the rare occasion their engineer can not fix the vending machine right away, a replacement will be sent straight out to you.
Suppliers to over 6000 companies from Crawley to Leeds, they offer a wide range of equipment, including snack machines, which serve brand-leading treats from Nescafe to Knorr soups. Their commitment to Fairtrade means they also provide ethical alternatives should they be required.
