Retail innovators Quintus have produced a version of their Epnet system that acts as the management hub to a cashless payment system and associated electronic tills. It is an online payment system which gives staffs access to funds in their personal account held in the system in order to pay for their food and drink. In its first real life site, it uses a proximity card reader for staff cards that were already in use as a security pass. The cashier keys the order into the till as usual and passes the security card across the reader.
