The legal services market has been undergoing a reform and process of modernisation in the UK, led by its governing body. The aim is to put the customer at the heart of the legal system and so, it is not surprising that legal practices are more focused on creating the right first impression.
For clients and visitors, the stylish design of the modern vending machine is useful in creating that all-important first impression. It is also important to recognise that clients and visitors have become accustomed to the sophisticated flavours and aromas, created by high street coffee shops. The latest vending technology has now been able to replicate this level of quality.
It also plays a role in staff retention, creating an atmosphere of value, for the more than 100,000 thousand solicitors, and supporting personnel, working in more than 9,000 private practice firms across England and Wales.
How vending machines affect legal services personnel
Research has recently confirmed that personnel who have access to a vending machine that use the latest technology, are more satisfied at work and hence, their production levels rise, on average, by 30%.
With more women joining the legal profession compared to men, and making up almost half of all legal personnel, it is not surprising that healthier vending products are desired. The current healthy-eating trends can be satisfied through new vending machines that are stocked with delicious handmade wraps, sandwiches and sub rolls, made from locally sourced British ingredients.
For the legal services business, it is convenient to have a vending solution that encourages highly-trained and key staff to remain on the premises. Top quality ingredients, including fresh ground bean options, help to create such an option.
Considerations when choosing a vending machine
The diversity of businesses working within the legal services industry is large and stretches from small local offices to larger companies working in major cities. Because of this, it is essential to consider how many members of staff, clients and visitors will use the vending machine.
Tabletop bean to cup vending machines are elegant in design and brew the highest quality drinks from top brands such as Kenco and Lavazza. Faster than espresso machines, these vend truly authentic drinks, brewed directly from fresh coffee beans. These are an ideal solution for legal services businesses that wish to project the highest possible image.
For locations where brews will be in high demand, it may be preferential to consider instant coffee machines that have been designed for reception areas and boardrooms. These tabletop vending machines are low maintenance and include Flavia and in cup machines. With a compact and convenient form, fast brewing technology works to deliver brews from top brands such as Mars, Galaxy, Taylor’s Coffee, Kenco Milicano, Douwe Egberts and Yorkshire Tea.
