Overview

You can use the VMS provider, VendSys, to manage your 365 V5 market. 

All VDI integrations in ADM are a data exchange between 365 Retail Markets and the VMS using the VDI industry standard for integrating VMS and MicroMarkets.

There are two data feeds resulting in the following operational changes for integrated markets:

  1. Locations (markets) will be setup first in the VMS and imported into ADM.

  2. Items (products) will be maintained in the VMS. When enabling the integration, the Products tab will become read-only in ADM.

365 will send funding, sales, kiosk, and cash out information to the VMS primarily for reporting and inventory purposes. 

 

Handling VDI in ADM

Due to the product structure inside ADM, VDI needs to be handled a bit differently. In ADM there is an operator level product catalog and there are location level product catalogs. The operator level feeds down into the location level catalogs. When we receive the product file from the VMS, it is fed into the operator level catalog. This creates the risk of cross contamination if you have VDI and non-VDI enabled locations in the same org. Here are two options to prevent cross contamination:   

  1. Enable every location in the org.

  2. Create a separate VDI only org for the customer to house their VDI enabled locations.  

Note:

  • All products need a scancode to get imported into ADM.
  • Sales from the kiosk are sent to the VMS in near real time.
