An extension of cashless catering software, our vending interface provides an additional point of sale to school caterers, encouraging further sales.
Completely integrated cashless solution
School vending machines
Our vending interface encourages additional sales by providing another serving point. Vending machines help reduce the pressure of the lunch queue and can be accessed at any time, which is particularly helpful for students during snack intervals or when the canteen is closed.
Students are recognised at the vending machine by either a smart card or fingerprint recognition. Payment is taken directly from their cashless catering balance, and their purchase is tracked within that same account.

"I have had a working relationship with CRB Cunninghams for over 10 years now and can honestly say it has gone from strength to strength. What really sets them apart is how they assist us with problems. Overall I am thoroughly satisfied with the product CRB Cunninghams provide and look forward to this ongoing relationship flourishing in the future."
"The preparation was excellent, and no requirement was too much of a problem, and provided exactly what we wanted."
"Many thanks to CRB Cunninghams for getting us up and running with the contactless cards and pre-order app. It was an excellent project and a pleasure to work with you all! I’ve had excellent feedback and expressions of thanks from senior officers, and more importantly, I have been inundated with requests from pupils wanting to sign up. I would highly recommend Fusion Online to other schools. In fact, I’m already advising other councils to implement the software."
Jamie Fisher - Facilities and Support Services Manager, West Lothian Council
"From start to finish, CRB Cunninghams displayed their knowledge and understanding of the school environment. They were flexible and professional from the start of the decision making progress. Importantly, they were timely in installation, helpful with solutions and remained part of the first operations day. They continue to offer support and be helpful."
"Provision of accurate management information on a service-wide and school-by-school basis identifying areas for improvement and best performers."
"Hats off to CRB Cunninghams who were brilliant partners throughout the project, ensuring the council project team completed on time."
"The upgrade to iDStore and Fusion has been a great success. The guys involved in the beta have managed and supported this project extremely well and are a credit to the company."
"I can't praise the system enough - it works really well with mobile devices too. We've just started our first trip collection too, which is minimising our overheads with cash collection - ticks a box for our admin staff."
"Our CRB Cunninghams cashless system has been very reliable, including revaluation units, tills and software. Any issues have always been quickly addressed, with excellent support provided by CRB Cunninghams. I believe CRB Cunninghams to be a market leader in this area and with good reason."
