TransaXiom’s digital cash solution was successfully launched during a private event marking Bristol’s Clifton Suspension Bridge 150th anniversary.
Held in wonderfully located Avon Gorge Hotel, with a perfect view on the birthday bridge and the magnificent fireworks, the event was organised by REM (Richmond Event Management), who were also taking care of the fireworks. TransaXiom provided the prepaid cards for the guests, and the payment terminals for the bar staff. Those terminals were all standard, off the shelf, Android phones or tablets, and 60 cards were printed and prepared for the event.
Thanks to the ease of use of the technology, it took only about 10mn to brief the bar staff, while the guests were handed out the pre-paid cards with £10 to spend as they came in. Making or taking payments using this digital cash technology was coming quite naturally to most of the users, both punters and waiters, who all praised the ease of use and speed of this new payment technology.
The devices used for point of sale terminals were:
- 2 x Vodafone Smart 4
- 2 x Google Nexus S 1
- 1 x Samsung Galaxy S3
- 1 x HTC Desire Z
- 1 x Google Nexus 7 Tablet
Focus is now on the next event, occurring end of January. More details will come in the New Year.
