Fidelity's full ePOS management system control is fully implemented across the University of Hull

The University of Hull is one of the UK's oldest Universities, originally opening in 1928. The University has two campuses ‐ Hull and Scarborough with a total of 22,500 students and staff. Fidelity are pleased to have supplied the complete EPoS system to the whole of both Campuses including bars, cafeterias, nightclubs, shops and the University sports Centre. 

A total of twenty PC based touch screen terminals are installed throughout the estate with the communications being by the University's network. Fidelity's G‐PoS software is used throughout on the touch screens with Fidelity being used for the back office EPoS control and management information reports. The flexibility of the PC based touch screens ensures the fastest possible throughput at busy times ‐ helping to keep students on site. The system copes with the complex promotions most Universities use such as meal deals, buy one get one free etc with all promotions being able to be set up in advance and activated at a set time on a set date. 

The Asylum nightclub uses Fidelity's admission system to ensure all students and guests are logged into the venue as quickly as possible. This system gives detailed analysis of who is actually in the venue.

The sports centre uses Fidelity's Leisure Touch system with access control. All student records are imported into this system at the start of the semester. Fidelity's card printing bureau is responsible for the design and production of all cards used by the staff and students for the sports centre. 

As all software supplied by Fidelity is written in house, we have the capability to give the University exactly what it requires. Most off the shelf EPoS software will only give around 80% of the functionality a customer requires ‐ with the Fidelity solution this rises to 100%. 

Fidelity currently supply seventy Universities and colleges in the UK with EPoS, cashless catering and sports centre solutions.
