What We Do

Aeguana is a technology company specialising in automated retail (think vending machines) and experiential campaigns. From in-store interactions to pop-ups and nationwide marketing campaigns, our team is dedicated to delivering amazing experiences.

Vending & Automated Retail

Through working with some of the world's leading vending operators and brands, Aeguana has developed a range of innovative vending machines. Our technology enables us to deliver extremely high levels of customisation to vend a variety of items and engage customers at point of sale in unique ways.

Digital Vend Touch

The Digital Vend Touch brings together all of our technology to deliver a vending solution fit for today. It's a small-pack vending solution, designed to be extremely compact and fit where most machines won't. Explore our Digital Vend Touch vending machine range below.

Bespoke Vending Machines

With in-depth experience and transferable modular technology, Aeguana can deliver unique vending machines, with full telemetry and connectivity and cashless/digital payments, at a cost that is unbeatable in the industry. Explore some of our customised vending machine projects below.

Digital Vend X

The Digital Vend X range is the culmination of all our technology applied to larger, free standing vending machines. By partnering with the world's leading vending manufacturers / OEM's we can deliver both proven reliability and the digital technology required for a truly adaptable retail solution today.

Social Vending Machines

We work with agencies and brands to deliver unique, experiential marketing campaigns. By leveraging our intelligent vending technology we can engage consumers in weird and wonderful ways, delivering samples and capturing data in the process.

Instagram, Twitter & Facebook Vending

Create unique experiential marketing campaigns using any social channel. From interactive and measurable sampling activities, to data capture, we have worked with leading brands around the world to uniquely engage tens of thousands of consumers.

Emotion Vending Machines

Reward customers based on what they're feeling. Happy? Here's some protein - it will keep you healthy. Feeling sad? Chocolate it is. We use emotion sensing technology to deliver unique campaigns.

Voice Recognition Vending Machines

Teach a customer how to speak a new language, or perhaps enable them to memorise words and repeat them correctly for a prize. The sky is the limit, but our (multi-lingual) speech recognition technology will put a smile on anyone's face.


Great software needs to do many things. It must be simple to use for the end customer, extremely secure, and sufficiently versatile to future proof the business and product. Our technology is designed to be modular, and extremely adaptable. Whether you're leveraging our IoT platform VendLive or looking to integrate something more bespoke, our engineers can help.

Websites & Applications

From mobile applications to control your automated retail solution, build loyalty and reward your customers, through to completely bespoke on-screen experiences in-store, or on our vending machines. We can customise and adapt our technology to meet your requirements, and deliver a great experience to your customers.

System Integration

We understand that businesses run multiple systems. Our vending machine technology and telemetry platform VendLive can be integrated with different systems to improve efficiency and deliver extended functionality.


We've worked closely with some of the largest organisations in the world, creating scalable and powerful solutions that work seamlessly behind the scenes, ensuring your users can enjoy your product every time. Sometimes cloud services aren't the only solution to a problem, and we can advise on the right future-proof approach that meets your constraints.

Mechanical Engineering

Aeguana can jump in at any stage in the engineering cycle - from concept (industrial design) through to cost-reduction for manufacturing. Our engineers adopt a holistic approach to product development, minimising your production costs, and time to market.

Industrial Design

Today more than ever, consumers are leaning more towards 'form over function' when making their purchasing decisions. It has become 'expected' that a product will perform as it says, and how it looks has become an indicator of quality and perfection. We never compromise on function.

Mechanical Design

From feasibility studies to undertaking mechanical design and development, our engineers will work closely with you to make your vision a reality. We have a deep understanding of manufacturing processes and techniques, ensuring ease of manufacture and minisiming tooling & production costs.

Computer-Aided Design (CAD)

By leveraging the power of CAD and computerised simulations, we're able to test a wider range of ideas and instantly identify potential complications without our clients having to invest in expensive (and redundant) prototyping processes. Coupled with 3D printing, it's now easy to know if your design works.

Electronic Engineering

Today, electronic design needs to do much more than just satisfy a set of requirements. It needs to future proof your product and technology, ensuring you can evolve your product on the go.

Electronic Design

Even the simplest products in today’s world are likely to include some basic electronics or on board system. With the advent of the Internet-of-Things (IoT), we are beginning to see more and more connected devices, and the importance of a good electronic design is becoming increasingly evident with scale.

PCB Design

Although all disciplines behind a product’s development require their own specialisation, we love the synergy of a seamless product and seeing everything come together. When designing PCBs, we look beyond just achieving a great board layout - whether it’s considering the user interaction or the manufacturing time involved, we will make sure the PCB is an integral part of the overall design.

Embedded Software

Even with the great developments in the capabilities of microprocessors, embedded software still differs considerably from any other form of software development. With very little memory to use and limited resources, it is more important than ever to have optimised code that can take full advantage of the power available and solve the problem effectively and concisely.

Manufacturing & Cost Reduction

Reducing costs in manufacturing can make a larger impact on your bottom line than any other cost reduction activity. If you reduce your manufacturing costs by just 20%, you've just increased your profit margin by the same amount. The opportunity for reducing inefficiency is considerable.

Setting up for Volume Production

Working closely with a range of suppliers and partners in the UK, Europe and across the world, we source the right components at the right price, and ensure supply chain continuity. Whether you're looking to source specific parts or outsource your manufacturing entirely, Aeguana can help.

Engineering Cost Reduction

Mechanical design changes, from a plastic part that needs injection moulding to a metal fabricated piece can quickly increase or decrease your manufacturing costs significantly. By aligning your product with the right manufacturing processes and manufacturers, substantial cost savings can be achieved.

Electronics Cost Reduction

By reducing component complexity, connectors, wiring and sometimes even entire PCB's, it is possible to substantially reduce your manufacturing cost without having any impact on the product itself. Similarly, it's often possible to outsource labour intensive processes to bring down the overall PCB cost.

Technology Consulting

We work closely with our clients to understand their objectives, be it establishing a wider automated retail network, securing key locations, or delivering products through innovative solutions in-store. We can both work on delivering the solutions as well as advising on the strategic elements involved.

Technology Consulting

Identifying areas of improvement - be it cost reduction, time saving, or performance enhancements. Aeguana's expertise in technology consulting ensures we can draw on experience across a range of fields to find the right solution to your challenges.

Project Management

Managing a highly technical project can be extremely time consuming and challenging. Our experienced project managers can work with you, as either a secondment or as a remote project manager to ensure your project goes according to plan, every time.

Research & Development

Our team loves undertaking R&D. Few things come close to exploring the boundaries of what is possible (and most things are). If you have an idea to improve an existing product, or to develop something entirely new, get us involved in the creative brainstorming.
