The University of Southern California, the University of North Carolina, and Ole Miss have all chosen Appetize’s cloud-based enterprise point of sale (POS) platform, adding a few more campuses to the company’s roster of higher education clients.
Appetize is a point of sale technology company serving the sports and entertainment, education and professional service verticals. The company’s payment platform is designed primarily to manage and process customer transactions at scale. Appetize’s proprietary system also supports POS technology across handheld devices, kiosks, mobile and inventory systems.
This latest batch of universities sees Appetize’s payment platform now deployed to over ten new campuses in 2017. The platform prides itself on marrying point of sale and mobile payments technology to provide a quicker, easier front end experience for students, and a robust back-end suite for reporting, inventory and timekeeping.
The platform promises high level payment security and encryption, while the company itself assembles and provides the necessary hardware — kiosks, handheld ordering tablets, POS systems and other concessions technologies. Appetize also accepts on-campus currency — whether via campus card, mobile or dining credit payment options — to provide students with additional ease in cashless payments for academic and on-campus dining purchases.
“Our technology is transforming how campuses cater to their students in a cashless world of tech-based payments,” says Max Roper, Chief Executive Officer at Appetize. “Appetize’s unique ordering systems like kiosks and tablets make purchasing a more interactive experience for the student customer, and increases revenue for the campus-based businesses.”
Appetize’s platform can be tailored to each campus’ specific needs, covering a wide range of purchases and transactions, as well as managing inventory, tracking stock and reordering supplies. The platform also boasts support for mobile ordering for pickup, delivery or at-the-table ordering.
