These machines are designed with climate control options that ensure product longevity, safety, and freshness while cutting down on annual replacement costs. This feature ensures that any refrigeration supplies are stored at the appropriate temperature. For colder climates, the Harm Reduction and Needle
Exchange Dispenser comes equipped with an automatic heater to maintain the correct temperature in the machine and eliminate condensation and fogging of the glass in high-humidity locations. The outdoor machine models have a rugged design with added weather and security features, making them highly resistant to vandals and the elements.
We talked with several companies, and after reviewing the data from them, we determined that IDS was the way to go, thanks to its history of deploying harm-reduction vending machines. I referred to the machines when I described them as fairly smart machines that can track the temperature so that we know that our supplies are being stored at an appropriate temperature regardless of the temperature outside. So, we like that feature – – Angela Wood, Chief Marketing Officer, Family, and Medical Counseling Service, Inc.
IDS’ iQ Technology tracks machine usage and makes it easy to control inventory for harm reduction and public health supplies. Providing real-time transaction and inventory reports can give organizations complete control and visibility into managing harm-reduction supplies and helps simplify staff reporting. These reports can help staff with planning, budgeting, and grant applications.
iQ Technology is a timesaver for organizations, as staff can manage inventory on hand anytime and anywhere. Staff no longer have to search for products and their information manually. iQ technology provides a seamless way to learn everything about a product, including when it expires, saving your organization time and money and reducing product waste.
This 24/7 virtual management solution includes a passcode feature. With this feature, staff can give an assigned individual a one-time use code, including an expiration date and specific product access. Clients can then access the supplies they need without staff being on-site. Many clients prefer this contactless dispensing solution due to stigma and privacy concerns.
