When money moves faster, lunch lines do, too.
Is your district’s payment process slowing down your entire School Nutrition program?
Most School Nutrition payment processes fall short by:
- Lacking security, often relying on cash transactions that put parents’ and districts’ money at risk from mishandling or inaccuracies along the way.
- Wasting time, both at the Point-of-Sale (P.O.S.) and also in getting the money from parent to student to cashier to district.
- Failing to integrate with other district Accounting systems, creating yet another step for data transfer which, in turn, causes entry errors.
- Inconveniencing parents by forcing them to track money on their own, remember to make daily payments, and keep cash on hand, or else risk a negative balance in their child’s account.
- Neglecting critical Support when your busy Nutrition program team needs it most.
All of these problems must make you think, “There has to be a better way.”
There is — it’s called EZSchoolPay.
