SB Software

 Since we started in 2008 we have grown to be the foremost provider of management systems for vending and office coffee machines across all of the British Isles.

We take pride in what we have achieved to date including:

  • Vendmanager and Coffeemanager: the best management systems there are for vending and OCS, integrating with unattended retail including micromarkets
  • 6 national awards so far, spanning innovation and customer service
  • Datakey and Databridge (bespoke hardware peripherals designed in-house to improve  visibility and efficiency)
  • longer experience with micromarkets than any other UK company.

What do we plan to do next? More of the things we do well. Learn how we can perform better still. And add a little more to our offering, with special focus on OCS and micromarkets. Current priorities include ramping up with both the Nova Market kiosk (ideal for self checkout in micromarkets) and the all-new Databridge (bringing ever more machines online).

What’s not to like about the Vendies? It’s an event that is both fun and useful, run by and for the sector where we do our very best, day-in, day-out, to make things better. It’s a chance to mix with people who we like spending time with, and who are very important to us as well. 

We like everything about the Vendies. Alongside everyone, we found it hard last year with things being run online virtually. But Heather and Jenny and the whole team did a fantastic job making the best of a difficult situation. Thank you.

The only way that the Vendies could be better is if more of the players in our sector got involved even more deeply in whatever way they can. So, we are pleased to be doing our bit by signing up as a sponsor – and especially in the Best Operator category. Without operators, there is no vending!
