AVT Granted Patent on Important Technology

AVT was recently granted a patent from the U.S. Patent Office. The patent was discussed in a front page story in Vending Times, the leading trade publication for the vending, kiosk, and automated retailing industries.

The article stated that AVT’s new patent covers any system that is managing multiple machines wirelessly. The patent will allow the company to license their technology to other manufacturers and users, many of whom are already using similar systems that may be infringing upon AVT’s technology.

The patent contains 19 separate claims that include items such as the use of touchscreen interfaces for item selections, information, and payments in conjunction with wireless management.

The patent is seen as a game changer in the industry due to the enormous size of the user base, and it catapults AVT to the top of the field as many vending manufacturers and operators will now have to work out licensing arrangements to continue using this technology .

USDA Issues New School Lunch Nutrition Standards

The U.S. Department of Agriculture unveiled new school nutrition rules on Jan. 25, aimed at improving child nutrition and combating childhood obesity. The regulations represent the first major change to school meal standards in more than 15 years. They will be phased in over the next three years, starting in the fall.

Under the guidelines, schools will be required to offer fruits and vegetables every day, increase the number of whole-grain foods and serve foods with less sodium and fat content than previously served. Only fat-free and low-fat milk will be allowed in school cafeterias.

In addition, the rules require portion sizes that ensure children receive calories appropriate to their age. A lunch for kindergarten through fifth grade students will contain no more than 650 calories on average. The limit goes up to 700 calories for sixth through eighth grades, and 850 calories for ninth through 12th grades.

The new requirements are part of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act signed into law last year by President Barack Obama and championed by the First Lady Michelle Obama as part of her Let’s Move! campaign.

The nutritional overhaul is estimated to cost roughly $3.2 billion to implement over the next five years. The act provides more funding to schools to help cover the extra costs associated with the menu changes.

AVT Develops Automated Store Entry Path For Companies Interested in Self-Service Retailing

AVT, Inc. (Ticker: AVTC.PK) (www.autoretail.com) has developed a unique method for companies and brands to enter the exciting world of Automated Stores. This dynamic market allows retailers and brands to open new distribution and sell products worldwide, with virtually no employees or overhead.

Automated Stores allow consumers to purchase a wide variety of products from a self-service system in locations that are either not served by a traditional store – such as an airport, casino or hotel; or are for use in-store to better promote a brand, control inventory, and eliminate the need for employee interaction.
There are hundreds of automated stores nationwide in high-traffic locations such as Macy’s department stores, shopping malls, supermarkets and airports, selling high revenue-generating items including such as Apple iPods™, Sony™ headphones; Canon™ digital cameras; fragrances like Glo by JLo and Kenneth Cole; Elizabeth Arden beauty products, cell phones and video games.

These automated stores can generate $3,000-$25,000/square foot, compared to the industry average of $300/square foot annually in a typical shopping mall.

Under the new program, AVT can quickly and cost-effectively design and develop a system that is completely customized to meet virtually any set of parameters. This allows owners of the system to place units into the field for pilot programs to test the system’s return on investment and effective on brand awareness.

AVT is able to offer such a program because they are one of the few companies in the world that designs, develops and manufactures turn-key automated stores, with an in-house team of software engineers, mechanical engineers, designers and technicians.

Automated Stores are now the fastest growing segment of the retailing industry because they reduce overhead and increase the number of products sold. According to a recent study, cosmetics were found to sell better at an automated store than at a typical cosmetics counter. When salaries were factored in, the automated store outperformed the employee-based model and provided a higher ROI by a factor of over 100-to-1.

“Our business is booming and we are in a position that we can help many companies get into automated retailing without the typical large development costs,” stated Shannon Illingworth, AVT founder. “Our unique structure allows us to work with retailers and brands to develop affordable, customized solutions that can achieve a wide variety of goals.”
