Strength in Numbers
On many previous occasions the need arose for costly exercises, which would have been prohibitive for a small vending operator. (Legal Action against a manufacturer, accountancy fees for GST expertise and ruling applications to the ATO). These fees spread over a number of members made it affordable for all.
As indicated by the successful past deals offered by Arnott’s and Schweppes, we are now being recognized as a professional group. We also expect to achieve future business opportunities when they arise.
Opportunity to comment on matters that will affect Vending – through IVMOA’s membership with the AVA, we are able to have our say on important matters and rulings that our regulatory bodies decide to change or modify. Recent instances are the proposed changes to our coinage and the imposition of a sales tax on amusement machine takings.
Shared Information on Equipment – Via our email broadcasts, any problems that our members have can mostly be solved with a solution from the others.
Respect from other members – Our policy is to work together to build our businesses, and not build them by acquiring member’s existing vending locations.
to acquire Multi outlets – There has been many occasions where IVMOA members have jointly acquired locations. An outlet may have required a coffee vendor but the operator tendering for the site didn’t do coffee, so used another member who does.
Discounts on equipment purchases – Buy using our group buying power, we are able to acquire discounts on coin mechanisms, note readers, etc.
