San Antonio, TX, July 27, 2016 – Parlevel Systems, the top-to-bottom provider of innovative vending technology tools for vending, micro market, and coffee, water, & other delivery operators around the world, announced the addition of a calorie disclosure tool to its industry recognized vending management system (VMS).
As required by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is establishing requirements for product calorie counts to be displayed on vending machines operated by businesses with more than 20 machines. Parlevel’s calorie disclosure tool helps operators adhere to these standards easily and efficiently.
“One of Parlevel’s primary commitments is to help our customers keep up with changing laws and ease the transition to new ones,” said Rafa Barroso, chief information officer at Parlevel Systems. “These new features will enable operators to adhere to the standard, avoid fines, and service health-conscious customers better than ever.”
Operators can select any machine inside their Parlevel VMS and quickly print out a sheet including product name, weight, and calorie count to display on their machines – all at the click of a button. The printable calorie disclosure sheet adheres to all standards in font, size, and information disclosed – ensuring that operators meet all federal standards without expending considerable time and resources.
“The biggest struggle will be operators finding enough time to actually disclose the calorie content on their machines,” said Chris Graham, President of Graham Snack Foods and President of the Tennessee Automatic Merchandising Association. “Operators have so many products and change them so often that complying with this law would be impossible without a VMS. Parlevel’s calorie disclosure tool helps us follow the regulations while satisfying and attracting stricter accounts like schools and universities.”
Parlevel’s planograms also feature product optimization tools, product performance reports, and up-to-date inventory levels that help operators maximize machine sales and provide an exceptional level of customer service. Parlevel is the first and only vending technology company to offer calorie count disclosure in printed planograms as part of a comprehensive VMS.
