Colleges & Universities

Over 90 colleges, universities and student unions are now using our complete EPOS systems.

By working with over 90 universities, colleges and student unions throughout the UK, MCR Systems fully understands the needs of the education sector and continues to develop and enhance the Symphony solution to meet the increasing demands that are now placed on education-related catering teams.


From EPOS and stock management to cashless payments and online ordering, our Symphony solution has your needs covered. Discover more below.

Create a cashless campus

Cashless is a more secure, convenient and faster way for students to pay. When there’s no cash involved, queues can be cut down significantly across food & beverage outlets. If you can provide quicker transaction times, you can serve more students throughout the day, meaning more revenue! Click the button to find out more about our cashless payment technology.

Take payments anywhere with SymPOS GO

With queue-busting solutions taking a prominent place on the agenda for many universities currently, we’ve developed our first truly mobile device – SymPOS GO.


SymPOS GO means you can enjoy all the benefits of a robust EPOS and business intelligence solution on the move. 

Improve customer experience with Online Ordering

Reduce queues and boost sales by offering online ordering to your students. Pre-Order is a fully integrated part of our Symphony suite of products. Linked with both SymPAY (MCR’s cashless system) and Symphony Loyalty, not only can you take advantage of a new channel for client orders, you can also get to know your students better!

Keep students and staff coming back for more!


Through targeted promotions or earning rewards, you can increase footfall across your F&B outlets, bring in new customers and incentivise students and staff to spend more.

Reward students & staff

Review performance

We’ve developed the tools to help colleges, universities and student unions monitor and control every EPOS device in real-time. With valuable data available at the click of a button, you can actively manage your organisation and respond effectively.
