VendTek develops and licenses automated transaction system software and
supporting technologies. VendTek's customers, subsidiaries and its Now
Prepay division use e-Fresh™ software to build electronic, prepaid
services networks that enable consumers to purchase prepaid products
and services via POS and self-serve terminals connected to a central
server. This system creates significant value through improved
efficiencies compared to a traditional distribution model. e-Fresh™
reduces shrinkage and inventory requirements for vendors while
improving consumer access to prepaid products and services by
completely eliminating physical cards and vouchers. VendTek has
deployed its software around the world including Canada, United States,
Asia, the Middle East and Africa. For further information please visit
