An employee arrives at an office that is not their home office and is in need of IT peripherals to accomplish their work. Examples might be a laptop power supply or security dongle. An on-demand traveling employee vending machine would allow the user to procure the item quickly.
Step-by-Step Process Flow
Need Power Supply
Employee arrives at location and requires a laptop power supply to continue working.
Accessing the Machine
Employee goes to the vending machine and inputs in their employee ID or swipes ID card at the machine to initiate a dispensing session.
Machine sends ID/PIN to the server for authentication and restriction information is retrieved from the database (restriction information is based on departmental limits or other criteria as desired). If the employee is validated the dispensing session continues, otherwise the dispensing session terminates.
Product Selection and Retrieval
Employee selects the desired product using the keypad. If the restriction criteria allows, the item is dispensed and the employee retrieves the item.
Information Sends to Database
Transaction information is sent to the database including:
- Time and date
- Account, site, machine
- Product(s) dispensed
- Employee name / ID
- Department (if required)
End the dispensing session.
