Benefits to pupils
A cashless environment reduces the risk of bullying and also resolves any stigma held between free and paid meal pupils. Pupils can sign on safely using cards, name, and number and if they forget their card photo ID can be used to verify their identity. Balances are stored centrally, not on the card, so money cannot be lost. There can also be warnings and restrictions per account for certain products e.g. allergies.
Benefits to the caterer
Service is fast and efficient throughout for students and staff. The system has a very simple intuitive user interface so staff require minimal training.
