What Are Cafeteria Keypads?

Cafeteria keypads are devices used in school cafeterias to allow students to enter their unique pin numbers when receiving breakfast or lunch. School cafeteria pin pads serve as a means of identification and help track the meals consumed by each student. They are often used in conjunction with point-of-sale software, such as Café Terminal, which facilitates data sharing through a server on the network.
