Remove the checkout bottleneck and attract more customers to your restaurants
Self Checkout System
Picture this: a student collects their lunch items and approaches a horseshoe shaped desk with 8 touchscreens on it. They swipe their RFID tag, input the items and click ‘done’. A rear screen flashes at the member of serving staff stood within the horseshoe, who checks the tray contents match the screen and use their tag to confirm the sale. The student then heads off to sit and eat. No waiting around in a queue, and reduced staffing levels – great!
Traditional till service
SelfXpress can act as a drop-in replacement for your existing traditional checkout tills.
This means one member of staff to one checkout screen, but we still generally see an increase in throughput with a simplified user interface and the added speed of RFID identification. If a student forgets their RFID tag, they simply get a new one assigned, and the cost is added to their checkout value for the day.
RFID - as fast as can be!
RFID identification comes out top in terms of speed, and removes the need for onsite ‘servers’ and the management of fingerprints (initial scanning, updating, and privacy law management). RFID scans work first time, every time and acceptance of a tag scan is instant. This means a faster lunch service. We also have photos of students on the system so that serving staff can conduct a secondary check of identity when checking out.
6th Form Custom ordering
6th form students often have the ability and means to go elsewhere for their lunch, to use vending facilities in the 6th form common room, or order food delivery. We help to avoid the need for any of this by offering a 6th form food ordering service. This service allows 6th formers to custom build an individually priced salad, baguette, sandwich, pizza or anything else, within parameters defined by the caterer. Items can then be delivered directly to the common room!
The fastest checkout in the West
Sometimes speed is everything; we certainly think this is the case for Secondary school restaurants. When your service starts to fly, so will your takings.
Full control for Parents
Parents sign up online in a couple of minutes - no online account balance management, no regular top ups... no worries.
“The service is faster by 10-15 minutes every single day and the kids go home happy.“

We'd love to give you a Demonstration
If you try it, you will love it! If you are a public sector school or caterer and wish to see our system in action, we can arrange a visit to a nearby school who uses us already. Caterers may also wish to try a completely free pilot. This would be for up to 5 schools and six months, and we pick up all costs (including payment fees). Click below to book a demo and find out more.
