The other school districts are going to want to trade for it.

Is your School Nutrition software and hardware outdated, slow, and “glitchy?”

Often, school lunch (and breakfast) solutions struggle to keep up with the needs of K-12 cafeteria staff and the long lines of students they serve each day.

That’s because most School Nutrition solutions:

  • Force you to transfer data manually and remember extra steps, causing costly errors.
  • Slow your lunch lines with a clumsy, outdated point-of-sale (P.O.S.) system.
  • Overburden your staff, each of whom already are “wearing multiple hats.”
  • Require you to maintain your own server and backups, costing valuable time and resources while also straining your IT director with the responsibility of safeguarding sensitive data.
  • Restrict all work to a single, desktop computer.
  • Confuse, frustrate, and anger employees with poor Support response times from the provider.

These problems can wreak havoc on your entire School Nutrition program and put everyone from parents and students to cafeteria staff and administrators in a tough spot.

Fortunately, we have the comprehensive School Food Service solution that solves all of these problems.

We have eTrition.
