The Kalgoorlie Boulder Race Club decision to partner with Cashless Events was quickly validated, with the pre-event experience in ensuring the success of our event and seamless integration was very well received at the track and via social media. The increase in bar takings and ease of service was very noticeable and the reporting, security and transparency of the technology kept us 100% in control.
Chief Executive Officer at Kalgoorlie Boulder Turf Club
"2013 saw the first [in the UK] implementation of RFID wristbands and a completely cash free site. Speeding up bar service and improving safety for all the system was fault free throughout the weekend and used, without major issue, by all festival-goers over the weekend."

RFID was such a tremendous relief for customer service. I usually anticipate spending the first night responding to complaints. But this year I didn't have to deal with any, which freed me to respond to other issues.
