5. Service gets smarter
TOMRA’s new “smart service” concept shows stores the health and status of RVM components, and notifies reverse vending operators about action needed or TOMRA servicing activities under way. This concept focuses on predictive service and maintenance, taking a data-driven approach and using AI to ensure maximum machine uptime for consumers and avoid unplanned repairs.
The concept for the first time gives stores direct access to service data. It seeks to extend the lifetime of components, make operations more efficient, and give peace of mind for operators. The concept at EuroShop shows data about the RVM’s crusher, for compacting drink containers, with visualizations and notifications delivered through the over-the-air digital concept.
“EuroShop is the world’s biggest retail trade fair, and we are excited to preview for our retail customers TOMRA’s vision for the future of reverse vending,” says Gudbrand Arnesen. “The TOMRA concepts at EuroShop span the entire product portfolio – from single-feed and multi-feed returns and backroom storage, to digital and service concepts – as TOMRA continues to set the pace for reverse vending innovation.”
All the new reverse vending concepts are previewing this month at EuroShop, the world’s largest retail trade fair, in Düsseldorf 26 February to 2 March. TOMRA’s EuroShop booth is located in Hall 7A, at booth B07. Visit our EuroShop site at euroshop.tomra.com. To arrange a commercial or media meeting, contact [email protected].
