Payment systems have come on leaps and bounds in recent years, developing quickly from providing customers with cashless transactions to enabling cashier-less checkouts – and the same goes for the unattended market. New self-service checkout options and interactive machines have changed the game entirely, offering the all-important seamless payments and next level customer experience. And that’s just the beginning of the vending revolution; with Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Internet of Things (IoT) leading the way, unattended retail is anticipated to be a £10b industry over the next five years.
2020 was a great year for electric car adoption in the UK, with plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) and battery electric vehicles (BEVs) accounting for over one in ten cars sold. Like it or not, the electric vehicle (EV) revolution is coming and every watt of power that charges an EV will need to be paid for.
