soon: Vendline Route Master!
Vendline Mission Statement:
The purpose of Vendline is to provide users
with an easy to use vending related website.
Further the purpose of Vendline is to facilitate
the search for vending related information,
and companies who perform a specific function
or service. Vendline will also offer analytical
tools used to evaluate business opportunities,
profitability, or project feasibility.
Vendline has been on the internet since October
of 1995 as one of the first internet sites devoted
to the Vending Industry. At its inception the
Vendline mission has been to provide information,
analytical tools, forums for communication between
users and vending related company listings with
links as a free service to its users.
To see how Vendline, or any site for that matter,
has evolved go to http://web.archive.org and use
the Way Back Machine. It is fun and informative.
The basis of the Vendline site is two fold. The
webmaster of Vendline ran a full line vending
route in San Diego, CA for 12 years. The company
was founded with no experience, no customers,
and basically no knowledge of the vending industry.
Fortunately the owner had business experience
with a major banking institution, and formal MBA
courses to help guide the way. Vendline is the
result of that experience. Having been there and
done that Vendline is a website which aims to
help others gather important information, help
others make sound financial decisions, and help
others grow their business.
Vendline is a free service. Vendline charges
no fees for any of our online information services.
In the near future Vendline will open the site
to advertising. Fees have not been set but the
basis of the fee structure will be a two tier
structure based on views and click throughs.
After a number of incarnations, looks, feels,
and programming environments, Vendline today exists
as all of the above delivered via a new DB based
server. What this means to the Vendline user is
the ability to search for any type of vending
information quickly and efficiently.
