Quickcharge – a dining and retail technology platform for healthcare, corporate, government and K-12 campuses, and a division of Transact Campus Inc. – announced an integration with Amazon’s Just Walk Out technology at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Tampa to enable employees to use their badges to pay for food and beverages and skip the checkout line.

Doctors, nurses and other health care professionals can grab a bite to eat by simply scanning their employee badges, selecting their food or beverage, and leaving the store without standing in line to pay. The purchase amount will automatically be charged to the user’s Quickcharge account.

Quickcharge allows St. Joseph’s Hospital, part of BayCare Health System, to offer a variety of cashless payment programs including payroll deduction, prepaid declining balance, meal plans and loyalty rewards. In the case of payroll deduction, Quickcharge seamlessly integrates with BayCare’s HR/payroll solution to automatically facilitate this process. Employees can view their receipts and account balances through the Quickcharge mobile app or web portal.

BayCare benefits from a lower support cost for running a nearly 24/7 café, while hospital employees save time and enjoy a smoother experience with frictionless checkout.

“As a healthcare organization, our people come first, both our patients and those working hard to care for them around the clock–our employees,” Brenda Goralski, VP of applications at BayCare, said in the announcement. “Now, we can offer café access nearly anytime for our employees who work all hours, and they can in turn, better serve our patients.”

Arun Ahuja, SVP and GM of Commerce Solutions at Transact, added in the announcement: “It's rewarding to see our cashless payment technology, which has been so successful on university campuses, integrated with Amazon’s frictionless checkout experience to enhance the healthcare environment where speed is essential. We see tremendous potential to continue removing the ‘pain’ from checkout processes at hospital retail stores moving forward.”

This innovative solution is now available to current Quickcharge cloud clients, on-premise clients looking to move to the Quickcharge cloud solution, and new clients looking to offer cashless payment options to their workforce.
