Cashless Vending

BioStore’s FasTrak cashless vending keeps your site truly cash free

cashless vending machines

Cashless vending using FasTrak’s cashless catering solution provides a unique opportunity for any organisation to expand their existing catering solution. Staff in the workplace or students at school can benefit from using funds already in their online account to purchase items from the cashless vending machines. FasTrak can retro-fit existing vending machines to accept cashless payments.

As FasTrak is integrated with BioStore’s ID Management solution, all a user needs to authenticate a purchase is either a smart ID card or biometrics to use the site’s cashless vending machines. This could be the same ID used to authenticate other products and services around the school or office such as the canteen, or building access.

The FasTrak vending solution is particularly effective in schools

Pupils can take advantage of the food on offer at school without any intervention or permission from staff. Students can only buy for themselves and not for other students too. Furthermore the system can fully integrate with Free School Meal schemes. Pupils who are eligible for free food from vending machines can take advantage with no hassle.

Upgrade existing vending machines to accept cashless payments

Installing FasTrak cashless vending does not require replacing existing vending machines. BioStore can integrate its ID touch-points with machines already installed in your school or workplace. Adding an ID touch-point then allows for purchases on the vending machine to be made using the same ID or biometric used in the cafeteria, for computer logon, building access or any other solution authentication is required. BioStore offers a fantastic upgrade to your vending machines without the cost of entirely replacing them.
