SCOTTSDALE, AZ -- Now available from Apriva is a video case study depicting how universities can successfully integrate cashless payments and vending operations with a campus card payment infrastructure. The video was produced in conjunction with the University of British Columbia (Vancouver) and VendMaster, a Vancouver-based vending operator. It focuses on the school's implementation of the Apriva Vend cashless payment solution.
"Many campuses around the United States and Canada are actively exploring the feasibility of leveraging cashless payments as a means to increase revenue and satisfy consumer demand," said Stacey Finley Tappin, Apriva's senior vice-president for North American sales and marketing communications. "This video gives viewers an end-to-end perspective on the business rationale for deploying cashless vending, the steps that are required to implement this technology, as well as quantifiable results that were achieved."
The University of British Columbia is one of Canada's largest educational institutions, serving more than 40,000 students, staff and visitors every day. The case study illustrates how UBC, in conjunction with VendMaster, deployed a cashless payment solution tightly integrated with the University's campus card. By using this solution, UBC is better positioned to serve a demographic that is becoming more comfortable with making purchases by card. In the video, UBC reports that it has already seen cashless sales increase 29% in just the first few months of operation.
