Benefits of cashless catering

time_highlight
Save valuable administration time

Reduce your school's administration hours. From eliminating the need to cash cheques and manually allocate payments, our cashless catering system streamlines the lunchtime experience to one quick and easy transaction.

lock_highlight
Remove the free school meals stigma

Each pupil's account is entirely confidential, and all pupils use the same payment method during meal times at the till.

Reduces cash in school

Cash in schools can be a problem regardless of the quantity. A cashless system allows staff to monitor payments and view previous purchases, reducing the amount of lost change and outside-the-gate spending on unhealthy foods.

Quick and efficient lunch service

The lunchtime rush can be stressful, with only 30-60 minutes to feed hundreds of pupils. Cashless catering speeds up the lunchtime queues by using quicker identification methods and pre-order payments.
