Laurel School District (DE) Saves 10 Hours a Week after Implementing Meals Plus Menu Planning Software

Prior to 2014, Nancy Mears, Director of School Nutrition for Laurel School District in Delaware, was struggling with an outdated and non-functional cafeteria software system. Her staff was working with spreadsheets, paper forms and systems that weren’t integrated. What she needed was a system that was web-enabled, accessible from any computer in the district (including the district office) and had all of the necessary components to run her department. That’s where Meals Plus came in.Laurel School District

Meals Plus’ school cafeteria management system included everything she needed: a single, centralized database with real-time updates, an online payment website for parents, and a robust software suite. Since implementing Meals Plus, Nancy and her staff are able to better manage their inventories, meal production records, student allergies and special diets. Just by using Meals Plus Menus, Nancy and her team have saved at least ten hours of work per week!

The biggest improvement they have noticed since implementing Meals Plus is their district’s accountability. They can view everything in one central location – from their Meals Plus login – without referencing separate spreadsheets or reviewing paper copies. Nancy looks forward to learning more about the software and how it will continue to save them time and improve their operations.
