AVT, Inc. (Ticker: AVTC) (www.autoretail.com) announced today that they have developed a new line of automated stores designed exclusively for the healthcare industry. These systems allow customers to purchase a variety of health and medical-related products through a self-service, automated store, 24-hours a day.
AVT developed automated retailing systems specifically for the healthcare industry so that entrepreneurs, physicians, healthcare professionals and retailers can quickly establish a profitable business by selling directly to consumers through a self-service, automated center. These automated stores cost-effectively increase points of distribution, stimulate immediate sales, and build brand awareness.
AVT’s automated retailing centers are already in use throughout the nation, and are being used to sell podiatry and foot care items, dental products, baby necessities, skin care, and prescription medicines. These self-service stores are located in malls, college campuses, airports, theme parks, hospitals, and other high-traffic areas.
Systems can be customized in a variety of ways, and can include cash or cashless payment systems, robust security – including cameras and biometric fingerprint recognition systems, and separate areas that will keep perishable or vulnerable items cool and protected.
AVT has also added an industry leader to their Executive Advisory Committee. Stephen J. McColgan, M.D., MBA, is the former Vice President of Medicine and Business at Imagyn Medical Technologies, and also served as the Chief Medical Officer for ONUX Medical Corporation. Dr. McColgan currently serves as the Chief Medical Officer of Microline Instrumentation and is also is on the Board of Directors of the Advanced Medical Technology Institute at Beth Israel Hospital, Albert Einstein School of Medicine in New York.
As a member of AVT’s Executive Advisory Board, Dr. McColgan will help provide insight, leadership and strategies on promoting the company in the rapidly growing healthcare sector.
“AVT’s core strength is in our ability to rapidly respond to changes in business cycles, and enter new markets as opportunities arise,” stated Shannon Illingworth, Founder and Chairman of AVT. “The addition of Dr. McColgan to our Advisory Board demonstrates our commitment to the healthcare niche, and our Automated Retailing Centers provide a turnkey solution for entrepreneurs and companies wishing to enter this sector.”
