THE OPTIONS

Multi-User User Version

The network version is often referred to as the multi-user version. It is designed to be operated in one school...one cafeteria. The beauty of this version is that it can be used and accessed by more than one user at a time. Deposits can be taken in one location, and lunch data can be entered in another with reports being printed by still another operator. Multiple scanning stations can be set up in the cafeteria to expedite students through the line.
The multi-user version requires a SQL database server.

Multi School Version

The multi-school version is based on the network version with small installations Multi School allows up to six schools to connect to the same database. Designed to work a small district (up to 2500 students), the multi-school version allows each school to collect their own meal money, work their own lunchroom and print separate reports or a combined report for the district. Family accounts can be set up to work with students attending different schools. District program allows administrators full access to all account information and system preferences. Schools and districts are responsible for all networking issues. Each school requires a separate license, however, we provide the district program at no additional charge

WEB ACCOUNT VIEWER

Web Account Viewer is an companion product to School Lunch. WAV allows parents to check their child's lunch account and eating activity from a web browser.

How it works in a nut shell...

Each day after all reports have been processed, the school uploads a file to our servers. Parents can check their child's or family account at any time after the daily upload and receive up-to-date balances, histories...even see what their student ate in the ala carte line.

The daily upload is an easy process that is accomplished with a few mouse clicks. Parents can view history for the past 30 calendar days. .

Works with or without WAV.

The Multi-User and Multi-School versions of School Lunch are designed to work with the Cube SQL server available from SQLabs. A free version is available that allows up to two connections. To go beyond two connections requires purchasing the server directly from Sqlabs.com.

Many smaller schools fined three connections is adequate.

Advantages of the SQLServer Database Server

  • An SQL database server can easily perform daily backups.
  • Unlimited connections to the School Lunch data file can happen concurrently.

Things to Consider
