The Brief

As Discovery Park aimed to establish itself as a world-leading science park, it recognised the significance of providing exceptional hospitality services to its stakeholders. The existing manual payment and order processing methods were cumbersome, leading to inefficient customer experiences and an increased administrative burden. The need for a seamless payment and accounting solution prompted Discovery Park to explore modern EPOS technologies.

The Solution

To address these challenges, Discovery Park partnered with Gardiff Epos to provide a cutting-edge EPOS solution. A comprehensive plan was developed to deploy EPOS systems across three campuses with integrated card payment capabilities and a centralised cloud back office system, providing real-time access to critical data. The integrated payment feature has significantly improved transaction processing times, allowing for quick and seamless payments to help reduce queuing times during busy periods, making guest experiences smoother and more enjoyable.
