Dinner Money
Taking the strain out of dinner money administration
If your school is collecting dinner money then this system is for you. It keeps track of how many dinners a child has had and how much they've paid. It calculates account balances as it goes and can produce a statement of meals taken and payments for any child which can be used to help resolve parental queries.
The system can identify parents that have fallen behind with payments and will automatically create personalised reminder letters for them. It will also produce the reconciliation of meals and payments for the weekly catering return.


Our Classroom Edition can be displayed on interactive whiteboards in the classroom, which then allows children to register themselves for dinners.
