Online School Meal Food Ordering Systems
Primary and secondary schools are under government and pressure from parents to go cashless to help combat acts of bullying and theft.
The ForBrains online school meal ordering system is believed to be the first of its kind capable of handling sickness, paper / telephone / online based ordering and payments, with support for local education authority paid for meals, payment of school clubs/trips/uniforms/after school care... and links directly into schools and the catering provider. Parents can login, view the schools menu weeks in advance, order and pay for meals online using their credit or debit card, or order meals online and pay by cheque or cash if they prefer, or automated recurring billing which takes the money for next weeks orders automatically. Parents can select clubs for their child and pay online. They can also pay for school trips in installments, order books, school uniforms, and see a calendar appropriate for their child. Child care sessions before and after school can also be configured. Meal collection reports allow parents to see if their child collected their lunch, and where a school has a deli type catering service, the parent can see what the child selected.
Catering companies benefit in a number of areas: improved food stock level control, automated food ordering, reduced food wastage, delivery reports for meals not made in-house, bespoke reporting and integration with existing systems, they can display nutritional information about each meal option.
School staff get weekly / daily reports showing what has been ordered, seating plans (if needed), allergen management.
Parents can print menus weeks in advance and order online, changing their mind up to the specified cut-off time. They enter allergy infomation to help protect their child, and feedback on each meal consumed (if they wish). Parents can communicate directly with the Catering Manager in relation to a meals ingredients weeks in advance. The system is fully compliant with EU, USA, Canadian and Australian allergen display requirements (eg. EU Directive 2000/13/EC & 1169/2011).
