Crane - Streamware

Your Profitability Tool for a Competitive Edge


"With Streamware's DEX handheld, a machine can be inventoried in 10 seconds. The machine can be filled in 10 minutes. Each driver now does an additional $6,000 per month in the same amount of time. I cannot imagine running our vending company any other way."
Jamie Edman, Total Vending Services

DEX has revolutionized vending since its introduction in the 1990's.  Thanks to DEX, vending machines can communicate transaction data to operators via handhelds and remote monitoring technology. Goodbye driver's intuition and paper tickets; goodbye manual meter readings; goodbye lost cash and product.
