Military Odyssey is an annual event that takes place every August bank holiday weekend. The event takes place over three days at the Kent County Show Ground has three arenas in addition to the main battlefield. Now in its 16th year the event has a conflict to interest everyone, whatever their historical knowledge. Thousands of re-enactors and living history enthusiasts cover a vast period of global history, from the Romans through to the Vikings, First and Second World Wars, right up to the present day.

2016′ will see the biggest event yet with more than 250 stalls, including numerous food courts. The reviews on the net are consistently “Fantastic” and it’s billed as the world’s largest multi-period re-enactment show.

The organisers to the event came to Wireless Terminal Solutions in 2013′ looking for a temporary solution to accept card payments on the entrance gates. The Chip and PIN machines were deemed such a success, the company have used WTS for their card terminals ever since and have found the short term solution has provided a cost effective facility without having to commit to lengthy contracts.

Karen Aslett who assists with the operations to the event, describes WTS as “efficient, providing a first class service” and comments on the UK based technical support the company offers:

“The mobile coverage on the Kent showground can only be described as poor. It is imperative for us to accept payments regardless of the outside issues that come with the site location and the technical support we as a company have received has been second to none. I know even if it’s out of hours or on a Saturday morning I can reach someone who can resolve my issue promptly and efficiently. The dual sim they provide which allows us to change networks has helped us so much. I’ve been so happy with the quality of the payment service.”
