Campbell College embraces integrated cashless catering
Campbell College, an independent school based in Northern Ireland, faced numerous challenges with its traditional cash collection methods and outdated catering system. The school needed to replace its existing system with a modern solution that offers speed of service, manages purchases through the cashless system, and offers an online payment integration. Fusion Cashless was the perfect solution.
"Before CRB Cunninghams, we used an old system which heavily relied on cash, and it was very important for us to find an integrated solution."
- Finance Manager at Campbell College.
By connecting iDStore, our identity management solution, to Fusion, for a truly integrated cashless solution, Campbell College staff can process transactions at the till in a shorter period without needing cash payments. Minimising cash payments has helped the school increase meal uptake in the canteen through a faster and more efficient lunch service. In addition, Fusion has provided Campbell College with a central database that gives them access to extensive reporting options, including meal ordering trends, which has provided valuable insights to enable the school to reduce food wastage.
"We have maximised our profits each day, and we have seen a rise in numbers we get through lunchtime."
- Business Manager at Sodexo, Campbell College's catering provider.
By combining Fusion with iDStore, Campbell College has reduced admin burdens by supporting data on one central database. As iDStore synchronises multiple databases into one location, eliminating numerous updates and ensuring all system data is correct and updated.
