Celebrating 1,000 LinkedIn Followers
Since we first joined LinkedIn a few years ago, we have been utilising the social network to keep our followers up to date with our education solutions, Transact and Infinity+. We have been sharing the latest industry news and gaining an insight into our follower's opinions on specific subjects. LinkedIn has been our go-to tool to introduce the world to our innovative education solutions.â€¯
We want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has followed our LinkedIn account, supporting us through liking, sharing and commenting on our content. We can't wait to continue growing our online presence and reach more industry professionals than ever before in the coming years.â€¯
Why do professionals use LinkedIn?
LinkedIn is a powerful social platform and one of the largest global online networks used to build new industry connections, search for job prospects, learn insights from your favourite businesses and discover new leads via B2B content. LinkedIn's goal is to connect the world's professionals to make them more productive and successful.
The social platform has an estimated audience of over 830 million members in more than 200 countries. LinkedIn has proven worthwhile to thousands of employers and job seekers, with 122 million people receiving an interview through LinkedIn. Unsurprisingly, three people are hired through LinkedIn every minute.â€¯
Many educational professionals worldwide use LinkedIn to network and connect with fellow professionals. However, LinkedIn can do more than just networking. Other features like joining groups such as 'Teacher Leadership Network' can help educational professionals to connect, join in with discussions, learn from other educators, share best practices or even discover new technology like Infinity+ Software.
LinkedIn is known to be vital for discovering leads. B2B marketers have reported that 80% of their social media leads come from LinkedIn, and 40% see LinkedIn as the most effective channel for driving high-quality leads.â€¯LinkedIn is a brilliant tool for sharing insider knowledge, personal stories, awareness days, polls and resources with other professionals in the industry.
For example, on the ami Education LinkedIn page, we have recently published a free guide on why 'pre-ordering solutions are important for schools'â€”identifying problems that schools could face, like food waste and how our Infinity+ Order app can solve this.â€¯
Whether you want to get involved with industry awareness days, have access to free guides and knowledge or stay up to date with our exciting development, follow our LinkedIn page to get started! Thank you for your continued support.â€¯
The Schools & Academies Show is an exciting event that brings together education professionals, school leaders, and decision-makers across the UK. The show serves as a platform for showcasing innovative solutions, such as cashless catering, and sharing best practices in the education sector.
Amidst the buzz and enthusiasm, ami Education had the pleasure of exhibiting at the event alongside Tucasi, payment and administration software providers.
Infinity+ Cashless and Chip & Pin live demonstrations
At the Schools & Academies Show, ami Education proudly showcased the Infinity+ Cashless catering system, revolutionising cashless processes in UK and international schools.
The live demonstrations highlighted the seamless and efficient point-of-sale experience, impressing attendees. This smart system manages student accounts and processes orders at the point of sale effortlessly, providing a convenient and secure dining experience. Visitors learned about the extensive reporting suite, offering insights from free school meal usage to catering reports and discovered how to harness this data to streamline operations and reduce administrative tasks.
Furthermore, ami Education debuted their highly anticipated Chip & Pin technology, which received a positive response at the event. Popular amongst sixth forms and secondary schools, attendees experienced the contactless solution and appreciated the availability of multiple payment methods. Attendees saw first-hand how ami Educationâ€™s Chip & Pin terminals optimise the dining experience and empower educational institutions to streamline operations and provide a seamless payment experience.
â€œOur POS software is evolving with features such as Chip & Pin and additional features. But the next big thing weâ€™ve got to do now is go cloud-based.â€
- Tony Reeves, General Manager.
Infinity+ Order receives positive engagement with attendees
Alongside the Infinity+ Cashless & Chip & Pin demonstrations, ami Education was excited to showcase its cutting-edge Infinity+ Order pre-order school meal app at the Schools & Academies Show. The demonstrations highlighted how students could seamlessly check balances, browse menus, and conveniently pre-order their meals from their mobile phones.
This revolutionary app transforms how students order their meals, ensuring efficiency and convenience. With Infinity+ Order, pupils have easy access to a wide range of menu options, the ability to pre-order meals in advance, and the flexibility to customise their choices based on dietary requirements or allergies.
The Infinity+ Order app empowers staff to efficiently manage meal preparation and reduce food waste by accurately anticipating meal demand. This topic was very relevant at the show due to the current challenges schools and academies face. The app lets pupils control their dining experience, ensuring they receive their desired meals quickly and conveniently.
â€œSchools are starting to like the pre-order solution, as they can allow pupils to pre-order up to three weeks in advance. Pupils only have to go to the till point and collect their meal.â€
- Tony Reeves, General Manager.
