In September 2011, Bournville College now South Birmingham and city College relocated to a new £66 million purpose-built campus in Longbridge, kick-starting wider regeneration of the area.
"It was essential that the cashless system solution integrated with the College's current technologies and fulfilled the requirements of the staff and students. The new system uses the existing HID iClass cards and provides an easy to use, cohesive solution… The Kappture POS system has scalable functionality and multiple possibilities. We look forward to continuing our relationship with Kappture and utilising more features in the future."
Peter Maxwell, Deputy IT Systems Manager
SAID Business School Oxford University implemented a brand-new EPOS solution in 2014 to which Kappture supplied the hardware and software for the project, the EPOS solution enabled the ability for cashless payments for the students and staff along with the ability to use the existing Mifare cards that the school already used.
"We worked closely with Addvance IT prior to selecting the solution – making sure all our customer and client requirements could be met. The design of our own branded Mobile App and customer website has been a real winner for our students and staff and we can now offer promotions and rewards easily and quickly. The implementation was well managed with a simple and effective training program backed up by on site go live support on the first day. When issues arose they have been fixed quickly and we are now seeing the benefits of managing our operation with the help of real time sales and cashless information via the cloud"
Mark Pearce, MIH General Operations Manager
Kappture imported the Mifare cardholder details meaning there was no need for the reallocation of cards to the students and staff. To go with the Mifare cards SAID had a branded mobile app created to which member could use along with their Mifare cards to receive promotions and rewards as well as supply feedback. During the install the SAID catering and admin teams were training by Kappture engineers on how to use the software, along with go live support for a smooth integration.
