Reducing cash handling is a major benefit as it speeds up service, reduces queueing and improves accountability.

Free Student Meal (FSM) and other bursaries are delivered discretely, therefore reducing any perceived stigma and reaching the target audience more effectively.

Although this is cashless catering, many installations do retain a cash capability to make the system as flexible and useful as possible.

The system also accepts contactless and contact bank cards linked seamlessly to WorldPay PDQs.

WhyEventPOS logo?

Integration with many e-payment services

Customers purchase goods from the till by using their contactless ID card, just like a debit card.

Customers purchase goods at the EPOS station using their card just like they would with a bankers or credit card.

Cashless Catering Purses can be topped up automatically for supplements such as FSM and bursary entitlements and manually via an EPOS station, a top-up kiosk, a back office computer or via an online payment gateway.

Eventpos login page in TPV device

There is no need for a dedicated PC to manage the system. The management console can be viewed from any browser based device with the appropriate user authentication.

  • Let our colour coded tills reflect your brand.
  • Cut the cords and go wireless with fully functional EPOS tablets.
  • Check catering and print account balances with dual purpose enquiry units.
RFID and fingerprint readers

Identify customers quickly at the tills using 3 different technologies:

  • Smart proximity card.
  • Biometric fingerprint.
  • PIN number pad.
  • Rapid search for users without ID.

EventPOS will display the customer name, photograph and available funds for spending at that time.
