Cashless Catering

BioStore’s FasTrak Cashless Catering solutions help to solve many of the day-to-day administration problems faced in today’s busy schools, colleges, universities and businesses.


FasTrak’s Cashless Catering facilities allows schools or businesses to go completely cashless. Catering at your business or school suddenly becomes faster and more efficient, because staff or students can collect their meal for the day with a simple & quick authentication from an ID smart card or biometric reader. Meals can also be pre-ordered using an online account that can be topped-up.

FasTrak integrates seamlessly with BioStore’s ID Management solution, providing unity among all other products through a single secure central user database. BioStore’s FasTrak is a flexible system and its benefits can be reaped regardless if working exclusively with other BioStore products or 3rd parties. BioStore integrates and works with many 3rd party applications and Management Information systems.

Cashless Catering for Education

Whether you are a primary school, secondary school, college or university, BioStore provides cashless catering solutions to meet your requirements.

In primary schools, FasTrak’s cashless catering system combines in-class pre-ordering with attendance management, so that pupils record their attendance when choosing their school meal for the day.

With this solution, Universal Infant Free School Meals are seamlessly handled, with the kitchen receiving the pupils’ orders to help ensure the correct meals are prepared for lunch. Older children can use the same system, with their parents topping up a pre-paid account online.

Introduce a cashless catering system to your secondary school, and you can ensure students are eating on the school premises, not spending their own or parent’s money off-site on less nutritious food. Cashless catering payments can be authorized with a smartcard, biometrics or pin pad, with payment made from an account that can be topped up online, using PayPoint or one of the school’s cash loaders located on-site.
