We had a blast at The Security Event 2023 in Birmingham! It was our first time exhibiting at this event, and we hope to return next year. We made lots of new connections and gave out more idXtra Business Bears!
The two Tony’s!
We had lots of interest in our Visitor Management System, VisiTapp, as it enhances safeguarding and security in any establishment. We can integrate our software with most existing Access Control systems, which makes upgrading to VisiTapp even easier.

Keep an eye on our blog and Twitter for news of our next event appearances! We hope to see you soon.
Spring has finally sprung, and this month we were thrilled to exhibit at the BETT Show again, for the first time since the pandemic!
It was great to see so many idXtra customers at our stand, and to meet some new ones too! Thanks to everyone who came and said hello.
Our new eye-popping graphics made a feature on our stand, highlighting our five main systems and emphasizing how they can all work together harmoniously.
We’ve got some special show offers on, which apply to VisiTapp, EventPOS and card printer bundles. These are here for a limited time only, so act fast if you’re after a great deal!
A few lucky visitors received a special idXtra ‘Business Bear’ – how cute!
Our next appearance will be at The Security Event 2023, from the 25th – 27th April at the NEC in Birmingham. We hope to see many of you there!
As it begins to feel like summer at last, we welcome on board a new customer to the idXtra family- the United Colleges Group! We are thrilled to welcome them and we look forward to working closely with them.
We have been chosen by the United Colleges Group to supply their new cashless catering and visitor management systems, alongside some streamlining of ID card issuance and population of the access control system.
We are installing our cashless catering system, EventPOS, at 22 locations across all of the United Colleges Group’s campuses (City of Westminster College and College of North West London). Their upgrade to EventPOS will simplify the issuing of discreet free school meals and bring several disparate systems together as one system, on a single network linked to MIS.
Our visitor management system, VisiTapp, will enhance the security and safety of their staff, students and visitors, whilst improving their front of house image. Our VMS comes in various forms and it can be customised precisely to suit their specific requirements.
Thank you United Colleges Group, we can’t wait to upgrade you!

In these summer months as the new school year rapidly approaches, many schools and colleges use this time to get upgrades to their premises.
The New City College group are no different, and this month have decided to get a major upgrade to their systems, and opted for idXtra’s cashless catering and visitor management systems.
The NCC group had our cashless system, EventPOS, installed across their six colleges and ten campuses. They chose EventPOS to manage their cashless catering across its very large estate; the system works perfectly for them as it links to MIS to deliver FSM and other bursaries in real time.
A recent and major upgrade to the EventPOS system is that it now caters for allergies and dietary preferences, meaning the safeguarding of students is greatly enhanced.
Not only did the college group opt for a new cashless system, but they upgraded their visitor management system too! We upgraded and replaced all of their systems to our VMS, VisiTapp, across all of their campuses. VisiTapp is highly efficient and reliable, and can be adapted to meet your specific requirements and preferences.
Lastly, just in time for the enrolment period, we supplied the NCC with ten new ZXP 7 card printers plus eighteen new CardExchange v10 licenses. Our card printers and software are very reliable and easy to operate, plus our printers can be hired on a daily basis!
Big thanks to the New City College group, it was a pleasure installing our systems in your premises!

As we enter the summer months, we are pleased to announce that idXtra will feature in the new June / July issue of ‘The Headteacher’ magazine!
We are delighted to be featured in the publication again, which is received by many primary school headteachers, school leaders, SBMs, executive heads and academy chain buyers.
Our feature in this issue focuses on our visitor management system, VisiTapp. We feel VisiTapp in particular would be of interest to primary schools, not just because of GDPR reasons but also for safeguarding and security purposes. These systems are essential as much as they are affordable; they can also really enhance the look and feel of the school’s front-of-house reception area.
VisiTapp is highly reliable, flexible and affordable, and is more efficient than the much-hyped leading brands. For more info on our VMS, visit idxtra.com/new-visitapp, and for a free demo or quotation, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0800 083 6053.
Get your latest copy of ‘The Headteacher’ magazine (Volume 5, Issue 5) on June 25th.
In recent weeks, we have had the pleasure of welcoming some new customers to the idXtra family! We are delighted to welcome the following establishments on board:
- Hartlepool College of Further Education – EventPOS Cashless Catering
- Derwentside College – EventPOS Cashless Catering
- Warley Primary School – VisiTapp Visitor Management System
- Colchester Sixth Form College – EventPOS Cashless Catering
Our cashless catering system, EventPOS, is proving to be very popular at the moment. Now is a great time to invest in a cashless system, as it would be installed during the summer months, so it would be ready just in time for the start of the new academic year!
Bicester School, who have been an idXtra customer for a few years, have recently upgraded to our cashless catering system too.
Benefits of using a cashless system include:
- Allergen tracking for students (the system records allergies and dietary requirements for all students, and alerts you if a student selects an unsuitable product)
- Improved customer throughput and reduced queueing
- Minimised cash handling
- Improved reporting
- Easy managing of payments (option to top-up cards online or with cash at a kiosk)
- Built-in bursary function with discrete FSM feature
- Ability for parents to view their child’s meal purchase history
