Imperial rolls out cashless payment YoYo app
Imperial is walking the talk when it comes to its cashless payment app YoYo.
The app, allows students, staff and visitors to purchase food and drink on campus without the need for cash or cards, is being pioneered at Imperial says the university:
Yoyo was co-founded by Imperial Innovations, a technology transfer company set up by the College, and launched for the first time last month at Imperial’s South Kensington Campus. Since then the app has attracted more than 2,400 staff and student users.
YoYo can be used across all Taste Imperial outlets at South Kensington Campus and at the Imperial Students’ Union bars.

“We’re building an app that is intuitive, exciting and simple to use, and feedback from our customers is key to achieving that,” said Michael Rolph, Co-Founder of Yoyo. “Imperial, being a unique community of exceptionally bright minds with high expectations of mobile technology, represented a tough audience for Yoyo – making it an ideal launch-pad for our product.”
