Vendfun - World’s First Multifunctional Hybrid Self-service Kiosk

Many people say that MCO is not a good time, However, I’ve created the world’s first Hybrid Kiosk that combines check-in/out and vending service during this time. 

 

About Me

I am Benny Wee. I have been in the electronics industry for 17 years. I stayed in England for 2 years before moving to Taiwan to continue to chase my passion in the electronics industry. During my 11 years in Taiwan, I had served a few electronics giants including Microsoft, Intel, Nokia, XiaoMi, HuaWei, ASUS, ACER, HTC etc. My areas of expertise include ecosystem-enabling, innovative thinking, operation and installation, and especially the touch screen technology is something I have been working closely on to refine and optimize. 

After so many years of working abroad, I thought, it’s time for me to return to Malaysia for good. During the first few years after returning to Malaysia, I often communicated with the American businessmen and traveled to China. While I was travelling back forth from China, I saw how advanced their automation technology is. Therefore, the idea had taken root in my mind - to deploy an automation system in Malaysia, bringing better convenience to the people. 

I had obtained a franchise to run a smart convenience store and vending machine business. In March 2020, Malaysia had implemented the first Movement Control Order (MCO), this is the time when I had decided to transform and optimize our business model.

 

Past experience made me who I am today

I usually took the night flight when I frequented China for work. It was usually midnight when I arrived at the hotel. I was hungry, but the restaurants were already closed and the room service had ended. Sometimes, I got exhausted and didn’t feel like talking, but I can’t ignore the friendly receptionists who kept asking me questions. 

During the pandemic, I put together these pieces of memories and tried to solve these problems that everyone has experienced using my expertise. Therefore, a Hybrid Kiosk was born.

My project

Vendfun is the world’s first hybrid kiosk that combines both check-in/out and vending services. It is also a pioneer in contactless service in this post-pandemic era that provides a safer, time-efficient and convenient automated service. 

 

Solving Hoteliers’ Problems, Unique Multifunctional Kiosk Patent

The pandemic has accelerated the development of the hotel industry, achieving an unprecedented acceleration in improvement and progression which otherwise would have taken 10 years. Especially the contactless service and automation technology. Self-service kiosks are not just a trend, but a necessity today. 

The first product of Vendfun is Hybrid Kiosk- a multifunctional hybrid self-service kiosk, suitable for both budget and boutique hotels as well as homestays. It can process check-in/out, sell food and merchandise. We are implementing cashless payment where consumers can make payments using their e-wallet (credit card, Touch’n Go, WeChat Pay, Alipay, Grab Pay, Boost, etc).  

Service quality and ethics are the issues that hoteliers often encounter. Oftentimes, the language barrier can also cause a negative impact on the hotel image and reputation. Self-service kiosks can solve human resources problems in a timely manner, and also cut out unnecessary trouble. Although self-service kiosks are no longer a trend, most hoteliers still can’t afford them due to their high cost. Plus, it doesn’t generate any profits. 

Hybrid Kiosk designed by Vendfun can solve all these problems: Not only it provides check-in/out services but also sells merchandise, and brings in revenue. The upfront cost borne by the owners will be converted into a rental fee, cutting down a chunk of their expenses.



When I first thought about the idea, I consulted more than 100 hoteliers. They all agreed and supported my idea. Also, this is exactly what the current market lacks. 

Later on, I requested assistance from a lawyer for patent registration, then only to find out that I was the first in the world. This means I have gained a competitive advantage by being the pioneer in the industry. The registration is currently in a patent-pending stage.

 

To Build a Complete Service Ecosystem

On 15th Jan 2021, the world’s first Vendfun Hybrid Kiosk was officially launched at Fenix Inn Hotel, Malacca. 

‘Vendfun Hybrid Kiosk is truly a revolution.” This was feedback from Fenix Inn. 

‘Vendfun Hybrid Kiosk offers 90-sec check-in & fast 5 seconds check out.’ - Sunway Metro Hotel 

‘Vendfun Hybrid Kiosk offers our guests free complimentary drinks directly from the kiosk when they check-in. Wow!’ - Sky View Hotel Dengkil, Sepang 

To achieve a true evolution, we continue to unlock new functions, this includes AI cameras which have a facial recognition function. If the AI camera detects a family during the check-in process, it will provide welcome drinks, and if it detects a child, it will dispense a small gift for them. Not only this will surprise the guests, but also will make them feel like home.

Furthermore, customers can register themselves to become a member after they have checked in to the hotel for point redemption, rewards and discounts. At the same time, the system will also provide guidance such as recommending nearby attractions, food streets, and even help you to create travel itineraries. We will also work with different tourism industries to offer more vouchers so that consumers can experience our one-stop service.

Other than Hybrid Kiosk, we will also be launching a Mini Hybrid Kiosk, and a Smart Locker to store keys and key cards that are specially designed for homestays.

As of June 2021, we have already signed a two-year contract with several hotels, and the contract revenue for 2 years is RM380,160.00. We expect our annual revenue to hit up to RM 923,930.00 in 2022. Among the 7 hotels that have signed a cooperation agreement with us, there is one in Malacca, one in Johor, and another 5 from Selangor (Dengkil, Puchong, Sunway, Serdang and Sepang).

There are 3 hotels in Malacca, Dengkil and Sunway that have already installed the kiosk. The remaining 4 kiosks will be installed in different locations. The total revenue is expected to reach RM 80 million in 5 years, and the revenue will come from purchasing kiosks, rental and advertisement. 

 

Contactless Automation is the New Trend

In the post-pandemic era, people started to realize the importance of contactless. Automation and digitalization are one of the strongest driving forces in the development of global enterprise. Automation is one of the important keys to create a sustainable enterprise. Industry 4.0 promoted by the Malaysian government is committed to helping small and medium-sized enterprises in digital transformation and automation progress.

In 2009, Tillster had released a Self-Service Kiosk Index, showing that 65% of consumers are more willing to buy food using the kiosks, a 40% increase compared to the previous year. Tillster also predicted that in 2024, self-service kiosks will be bringing $30.8 billion in revenue to the business. 

In recent years, not only McDonald's is operating self-service kiosks, but also KFC had planned to use them in their 5,000 stores worldwide in 2020. While in other countries, Burger King, Subway, Dunkin’ Donutes have already started using the kiosks.

Marriott International, Inc. has started using self-service kiosks, allowing the customers to check in and out, and getting the room keys through the kiosk, making it a true contactless experience. Some of their hotels have also introduced kiosks where guests can buy food, snacks, and beverages. 

Hybrid Kiosk from Vendfun combines these two functions.

To Become the Leader in the Offline Smart Device Ecosystem in Southeast Asia

The goal of Vendfun is to become the leader of the O2O offline smart device ecosystem in the interest of meeting the demands of the digital age. We have combined the multifunctionality from both software and hardware into one, serving people in a safer and faster way. We aim to become a partner with other Online Travel Agencies (OTA) such as Booking.com, Agoda, Expedia, Ctrip, etc to improve the services of both local hotels and short-term rental businesses.

The offline service is still something that lacks in the Malaysian market. When the pandemic hit, people flocked to online businesses, like e-commerce, live streaming, etc. In spite of that, I decided to focus on developing offline services. I am not against the trends, but I believe I am actually riding the new wave to start a new business opportunity in improving the services in the hospitality industry.

The offline service is very challenging in terms of human resources and knowledge. We need to have enough resources in order to function. However, I have devoted myself to this industry for many years, and I have accumulated rich experience and have mastered various aspects of human resources, knowledge in technology, and familiarity with every production line. Of course, I also get my support from my professional partners, Rachel and PY. 

Rachel, the co-founder of Vendfun, was a team leader in a factory in England. She has had many years of experience in managing smart convenience stores as well as in the F&B industry. PY, our Chief Operating Officer, also the secretary of the Malaysia Business & Budget Hotel Association, has 7 years of experience in managing her own hotels and also managing 12 different hotels in Malaysia. 

The reason why we choose to start a crowdfunding campaign on Mystartr is that we are hoping to find people of the same mind. Especially during this pandemic, we need to work together to reduce human contact and revitalize the tourism and hotel industry. Our crowdfunding goal is Five Hundred Thousand Ringgit Malaysia (RM500,000.00). 40% of the funding will be spent on purchasing machine components, 20% on marketing expenses, 20% on labour expenses and 20% on research and development, and operation expenses. 

Warren Buffet once said: ‘Be fearful when others are greedy and greedy when others are fearful. I decided to stay positive and choose to sow seeds during this pandemic era. People will soon realize this opportunity as soon as the economy starts to recover, and I am already harvesting

 If you agree with Vendfun’s missions, see the potential in Vendfun and believe in the future of Vendfun, you are welcomed to be part of Vendfun. Not only to make profits, but also to build a new era of smart convenience.

Vendfun,全球第一家解食住行的多功能混合型自助服务机

很多人都说MCO不是一时机,可是我却在这时间,创造了全球第一台合入住退房功能和贩卖功能的自助服务机。

 

我的自述

我是Benny Wee子行已有17年的经验。先前在英待了2年,后转换到台湾继续投身我所热爱子行。在台11年以,我服务过几家,包括MicrosoftIntelNokia、小米、华为ASUSACERHTC等等。我擅的范包括新科技与研究、实际安装操作,尤其是触屏科技,都是我一直致力深化并优化的领域。

在外打拼了十几年,我想,是候回到马来西落地生根了。的前几年,我一直都是和美商接,也因工作需要常常往中。在中来时,看展蓬勃,于是我海里下了一颗种子:要把自化更全面落马来西,提供国人更多方便。

我曾取得特许经营权经营无人商店,做自动贩卖机。20203月,我国开始实施行动管制令(MCO),我决定转型和优化我们的商业模式。

 

过往经历成就了如今

往来工作的些年,我很多候都是搭夜班机,抵酒店往往已半夜,肚子饿了周食肆却了,酒店的送餐服务(room service)又结束了。有候太累了无力多说话,但台人基于貌却又一直询问你的需求。

疫情期间,我把些零碎的拼凑,想着怎么决这些大家都有共问题,同又能合自己的专业。于是,Hybird Kiosk(多功能混合型自助服机)这样个概念的机器就此诞生。

我的项

Vendfun不只是全球第一家合入住退房功能及贩卖功能的自助服机供应商,更是后疫情代下开创无接式服contactless service)的先锋,给人更安全、更省、更便利的自务。

 

解决酒店问题多功能混合型自助机专利

重创全球的疫情加速了酒店展,原先需要十年时间改善步的酒店行,在短短的几月里就到了前所未有的大跃进,尤其是无接和自化服务这块科技域。自助服机不再是未来趋势,而是现代必需品。

Vendfun的第一台品是多功能混合型自助服机(Hybrid Kiosk),适用于所有经济型酒店(budget hotel)、精品酒店(boutique hotel和短租公寓台自助服机的功能包括自动办理入住退房手,同时贩售各饮与商品。我采用的是无金付方式,即消者可以包(信用卡、Touch ’n Go、微信支付、支付Grab PayBoost等等)方式付费。

酒店业者常常面临员工素质与操守的问题,有也因言不通的窘境,酒店形象大打折扣。自助服能及人力问题,却也省却不少麻然自助服机已不是一趋势,但酒店者却常常无力担,一是因钱昂贵,二为这台机器不会带来收入。

Vendfun设计Hybrid Kiosk就能助解一切问题能自动办理入住退房手,同售各商品,增加酒店收入。而者需要承担的用也直接转换成租赁费用,减轻了一开销。

一开始有这个头时,我询问100多家酒店者,他都一致这个想法,而且的确也是目前市场的缺口。

后来求律师协助申请专利,才发现我是全球第一表示我已先机。目前利待patent pending)的阶段。

 

打造一个完整的服系统

2021115日,全球第一台Vendfun Hybrid Kiosk正式架六甲Fenix Inn Hotel

 “个真正的革新Fenix Inn予我的回馈。

“90秒完成入住手续,5秒退房。” Sunway Metro酒店赞叹。

当顾客登入酒店时,Hybrid Kiosk会直接送他们免费饮料,太惊喜了!” Dengkil Sky View酒店如是说。

要做到真正的革新,然需要不新功能,其中包括AI Camera的人脸识别功能。AI镜头如果侦测到一家庭在机器前登入酒店,将会为送上迎宾饮料;如果此时刚好有小孩,机器也会为小孩送上小玩偶。仅给满满喜,也至如的感觉。

除此之外,当者透Hybrid Kiosk登入酒店以后,他可以注为会员,以消费换分,累更多折扣。同,系提供不同的导览,推荐你邻近的旅游景点、美食,甚至帮你规划行程。我和不同的旅游者合作,提供更多惠券,一站式服务。

除了目前已经推出市Hybrid Kiosk,即的也有迷版的Mini Hybrid Kiosk,以及特别为民宿或短租公寓者所设计,用存放匙和房卡的智能匙卡Smart Locker)。

截止20216月,我们已经跟几家酒店签了两年合约。两年的合约金营收为RM380,160.00,我们期望2022年的营收可以达到RM923,930.00。其中7家已经与我们签订合作协议的酒店包括1家来自马六甲、1家来自柔佛,以及5家来自雪兰莪位于龙溪(Dengkil)、蒲种(Puchong)、双威(Sunway)、沙登(Serdang)和雪邦(Sepang)的酒店。

已经安装自助服机的酒店目前共有3家,分是在六甲、溪和威,接下会为其余的4部安装在不同地点。放眼5Vendfun收入预计达马币8千万,而些收入都是源自于商家采机器、租赁费用以及广告收入。

 

无接触化是下趋势

在这个后疫情代,人都看了无接contactless)的重要性。自化和字化然成全球企业发展最强的推力之一。企之所以能永续经营,自化是关键之一。马来西政府推行的工4.0,也在致力助中小企业迈向自与数字化转型。

2019Tillster布的Self-Service Kisok Index指出,共有65%的消者更愿意使用Kiosk来购买食物,相起前一年的25%,一共升了40%Tillster预测,在2024年,自助服将会为业带来300亿美元($30.8 bil)的营收。

这几年,麦当劳开始在全球分店使用自助服机,KFC也在2020年大加入自化行列,在全球5,000家店面增自助服机。早在外,Burger KingSubwayDunkin’ Donutes各速食餐早已始采用自助服务。

万豪酒店集Marriott International, Inc.)旗下的多家酒店也在今年始使用自助服机,者可以透机器自行理入住或退房,索取房卡,完全不需要接任何人。有的万豪酒店还设贩卖机,餐、零食和饮料。

VendfunHybrid Kiosk,正好合了这两大功能。

Vendfun创办旨在成O2O线下智能设备圈的领跑者,以迎合物联网时代的需求,集多功能的硬体设备于一身,人可以同快速又安全地在各式用中取服。我也希望可以和其他OTAOnline Travel Agency),也就是线上旅游者如Booking.comAgodaExpediaCtrip等成合作伴,一起化本地的酒店和短住宿消务。

线下服的是人力源和知识储备,所花的人力物力都需要有足源。但我多年投身这个领域,已丰富的经验且掌握各方面的人力科技知每一产线都了如指掌。背后也有于我的专业伙RachaelPY

RachaelVendfun创办人,曾在英国担任工厂生产控制员团长,并拥有无人商店与餐饮商店管理经验PY是我营运总监马来西酒店协会Malaysia Business & Budget Hotel Association)雪莪分7年自酒店经验,同掌管国内12家酒店。

选择在Mystartr平台众筹,是希望可以找到有共同理念的人,尤其在经历这场疫情后,一起为减少人人的接且振旅游和酒店。我马币5百千令吉(RM 500,000.00),其中40%机器件,20%销费用,20%人工,及20%用作研发运营费。

巴菲特说过这样的一句:看到要感到害怕,看到人害怕心。我定采取积极选择在后疫情代撒,等经济这个会时,我就已经在收割了。
