PUNE, India, Oct. 14, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- To enhance digital convenience to office food courts, GoKhana collaborates with Vendekin Technologies by introducing smart vending machines for snacks, meals & coffee vending to reduce multiple touchpoints of an employee.

GoKhana is solving the problem faced by working professionals visiting office food-courts. They often have to spend time waiting in line to place an order, and then wait even more for the order to be ready for pick-up. The GoKhana digital experience puts the ordering experience seamlessly into the employees' hands - place orders from the easy-to-use app and collect the order only when they receive the notification.

Keeping future trends in sight, GoKhana is partnering with Vendekin to enhance GoKhana's digital offerings to office food courts. Introducing vending machines powered with Vendekin's touch-free vending technology, and integrated with GoKhana's contactless ordering solution is a win-win for clients at major offices across India.

Simply scan the QR on the vending machine and choose your meal / snack / drink with the ease of digital payments. You can enjoy your food / drink with minimal contact points.

"The need for touchless, unmanned snacking and food kiosks/machines at office cafeterias will become more pronounced as the economy opens up and people start going back to work. We are excited about this partnership that will enable seamless access to touchless, unmanned vending machines for employees for all GoKhana digitally enabled cafeterias." - Aroon Khatter, Founder/CEO Vendekin Technologies.

"Continuous innovation is one of the core principles at GoKhana. And we are excited to find a partner in Vendekin that shares our drive for innovation. The touchless vending solution is a meeting of strengths for GoKhana & Vendekin, and we are looking forward to serving our clients better as their employees start returning to the campuses" - Ankur Marda, Co-Founder/CEO GoKhana

GoKhana and Vendekin will shortly be expanding this partnership to tech-parks and apartment complexes as well.
