The Best Cashless Payments System for Schools, Events and Hospitality has arrived.
Combining closed loop cashless payments with open loop credit card acquiring, seamlessly integrated into a single cashless payment system for your schools, events, markets and exhibitions. Make your events truly cashless with a hybrid of bank cards and your own branded events card or personalised smart school ID without compromising the analytics.
The Allxs Point of Sale and events management system can manage your sales, inventory, credit card payments, closed loop payments, vouchers, discounts and even sell mobile data and airtime from any stand. There is no more need to rent cash tills and credit card terminals separately when you can get an all in one integrated solution. The integrated point of sale and credit card acquiring solution prevents user error, saves hours on cash up time and delivers detailed reporting. The Allxs cashless payment system accepts all NFC tap cards right at the stand. Customers who do not have tap enabled cards or only carry cash can load an event card at the top up station.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Who is the Allxs cashless payments and event management system built for?
The system was developed for schools, events, clubs and hospitality. Allxs is an integrated payment platform which consist of a point of sale with closed loop payments, credit card payments, member account management, inventory control, remote printing, vouchers, discounts and a digital rewards currency.
What is the difference between the Allxs point of sale and a regular point of sale.
The Allxs point of sale tracks itemised sales for every order with an integrated credit card facility. This means that the order is processed on the point of sale by selecting the correct products and when credit card is selected as the payment method, the transaction is automatically referred to the pin pad with no room for error as the amount does not need to be entered manually.
How is the Allxs credit card processing system different to any other credit card terminal.
Credit card terminals only record amounts that are processed and do not provide any detailed sales data. Mobile credit card terminals are not integrated into any cash register system and are not capable of automatically reconciling the sales.
Do my customers have to load their money onto a separate card to make my event cashless.
No, your customers can use their own NFC enabled bank cards or load an events card to use at your event.
What is NFC?
NFC (Near Field Communication) is a technology that allows the exchange of communication between 2 devices by placing them next to each other. All new bank cards are NFC enabled to allow for faster payments during the check out process.

AXS Coin Rewards will be rolled out during the course of the first term. This digital rewards currency aims to help drive positive behavior across all the spectrum of school life. This includes rewarding healthy food choices at the tuck shop, achievements in academics, sports and culture as well as any other behaviours the community would like to reward. AXS Coins can be purchased by parents, schools and any other members of the community and can be used to reward anyone within the school community.

In addition to driving positive behavior at schools, parents can use the system to drive positive behavior at home and reward their kids in a safe and meaningful way with a controlled set of redemption partners. Schools can also use the system to reward those parents who tirelessly support the school with their precious time.
South African venture capital firm Knife Capital announced the top twelve companies participating in its fourth Grindstone Accelerator programme. Grindstone engineers growth for South African innovation-driven entrepreneurs by shaping their companies to become more investable, sustainable and exit-ready.
Some of South Africa’s best scale-up companies have been through Grindstone with measurable results. These include ticketing solutions provider Quicket, financial inclusion business Picsa; augmented reality animation & gaming company SeaMonster; payments software provider Electrum, transport data company WhereIsMyTransport, Bitcoin blockchain anti-piracy solution Custos and radar startup iKubu (acquired by Garmin).
Over the last three intakes, the interventions of the year-long program resulted in the participating companies experiencing an average of 56% year-on-year increase in revenue while mastering business fundamentals. Andrea Bohmert, Knife Capital Investment Partner explains: “Grindstone is about measurable growth, about building a foundation that can handle both challenges and opportunities. It is about being prepared, as interesting things happen to companies that are ready and able to act on short notice.”
In this cohort, Knife Capital is taking twelve businesses through an intensive review of their strategies to provide them with the insights and tools to build a foundation for growth. “We initially set out to find ten SMEs to partner with, but the exciting and diverse range of the opportunities presented, combined with corporate partnerships reached, enabled us to open the program up a bit wider,” says Bӧhmert. “Each one of these companies is at a tipping point, with many strategic options to pursue. During Grindstone the entrepreneurs are given the opportunity to validate their growth assumptions and check these against the company’s ability to execute.”
Grindstone collaborates with other top incubation and acceleration programmes in the market to augment the learning experience and continue the growth journey. The programme draws on various speakers, mentors and corporates as value-adding partners to assist in supporting these high-growth SMEs. “We were overwhelmed by the interest and deep interventions from leading South African corporates,” says Bohmert. This year Grindstone is partnering with entrepreneurial-minded organisations that include: FNB, Webber Wentzel, Creative CFO, Thinkroom Consulting, Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud, Microsoft 4Afrika, M&C Saatchi Connect, GMG Technology, Matchboxology and Billybo Group to link into and bolster market access opportunities.
Knife Capital is also currently in partnership discussions to launch a Johannesburg-based Grindstone Programme in 2019.
