Coupled with the ability to act as lockers, to distribute post and parcels efficiently, and more intelligent analytics to manage stock, usage, and costs – digital vending becomes a powerful tool to increase efficiencies across your business.

Wraparound expertise

Working alongside technicians, consultants, and experts from across our business – our advice comes with all the considerations of how digital vending will slot into your wider business operations (like your energy efficiency goals, or your digital workspace projects.)

Technology tried and tested

Our offices are home to many of the products we recommend to our clients. And for those we don’t use ourselves, we put them through their paces at our in-house testing lab. That means that whenever we introduce some tech to you, we’re confident that it’s the best solution.


Empower your people, empower your business

Giving your staff the tools to be more productive means your organisation becomes more efficient.

Digital vending is the solution to many problems at once, but it does come with challenges if you want to get it right first time:

Understanding the latest trends
Keeping up with the pace of change in digital technologies means having the time and headspace to always keep an eye on the market.
Aligning tech and goals
Even if you’re aware of the landscape, it can be difficult to assess every innovation against whether it’s right for the needs of your business.
Managing change
When you do find the right solution, it needs careful planning and execution. New systems and processes often come with their growing pains and they need careful consideration to maximise user adoption.
Finding the right vendor partner
Purchasing the best product is only half the battle, you also need to evaluate who’s going to be the best partner to work with long-term. If you’re unfamiliar with the market or you don’t have the resource to stay on top of it, choosing the right partner will be a crucial decision.
Measuring ROI
Any investment in technology needs to provide a clear return on investment. For digital vending, it might not be the most obvious calculation, so you need to set up a process that allows you to prove value, make changes, and assess future plans.

A switch to digital vending can deliver +20% efficiency.


Digital vending can offer almost a third more products.

Insight into digital vending innovations.

Transactional technology, like RFID and Contactless, means better customer experience and more efficient purchases and services. Technologies like blockchain, voice, and biometric are being integrated into payment processes for greater security and quicker check-outs.

Personalised vending experiences, where users can be recognised by the digital vending machine and recommended products or even discounts, is helping to make every day experiences smarter. The use of smart discounting can also help to boost sales of slow-moving stock.

Augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) can enhance the shopping experience by showcasing products in a more engaging and interactive way. This can empower smarter buying decisions and, like personalisation, help to promote certain products and stock.

Sustainable vending solutions are making the process more eco-friendly. Use of behavioural analytics can uncover opportunities for power-saving, and ports for returning product wrapping can drive recycling rates up.

Commercial deliver. We are fortunate to work with some amazing partners. Here are some examples of great things we hear every day.

The new Walsall Housing Group office is a fantastic, fresh and modern workplace thanks to the wonderful work of the Commercial interiors team. They created a steering group to work alongside us to understand our demands and held regular meetings during the design process to keep us informed of the progress. Our desire was for a more collaborative space, with meeting booths and one-to-one seating, rather than traditional desks – and they delivered a fantastic final fit-out over the full four-floor building.
Each year, Commercial supplies accessory packs to graduate trainees at a leading accountancy firm, which are then picked, packed, and delivered to their home addresses by the Commercial Foundation. This not only guarantees that every new employee has the necessary equipment to be productive from their first day but also allows their IT team to focus on other responsibilities. Collaborating with the Commercial Foundation generates substantial social value returns on investment for the firm and contributes to improving the lives of the Foundation's volunteers.
Wollens have enjoyed a long-standing and fruitful partnership with Commercial because they are always introducing innovations and improvements to our IT environment. As the threat of cyber-attacks increases it was vital that we strengthened our capabilities for dealing with a ransomware attack with a cloud-based backup solution. Our solution means data cannot be altered or deleted, giving us a crucial way of recovering data to minimise any potential downtime and financial losses
Working with Commercial for our branded materials has proved to be effective and collaborative. The team is efficient and they listen to requests for improvements. Commercial has made branded goods simple.
As E-commerce in retail continues to grow, Commercial’s stock-management and fulfilment expertise has allowed a leading UK retailer to free huge amounts of warehouse space. Commercial took on the stocking of our employee uniform, transferring to a new supplier with the management of the supply being consolidated into their existing supply accounts. Not only did this free vital space in their distribution centre, the consolidated supply of all GNFR delivered significant delivery cost savings.
At JoJo Maman Bébé we are happy to work with the Commercial Foundation and support inspiring work they do to help disadvantaged young adults. Like us, the Foundation are a B Corp certified organisation that is proven to put purpose ahead of profits. We have enjoyed working with their volunteers to help with a mug-making activity. We are now working alongside them to create an introduction gift for our new employees, these include printed mugs, pens and notebooks.
