Horizon Intros Food Service Management System for Smaller Districts
Horizon Software International has announced the release of KidServe, a complete food service management application aimed specifically at districts with between one and eight schools. The point of sale (POS) software manages all aspects of school food service, including inventory management, cost management, personnel, ordering, menus, and a diverse array of payment plan options.
The pre-configured POS system is designed for easy implementation and a minimum of required user training. A notable feature of the software is its "EZ Steps," which walks the user through several frequently accessed processes, such as physical inventory and ordering groceries. In addition, KidServe includes a database of recipes, cycled menus, and commonly used inventory items and ingredients already linked to nutritional information.
The goal, said HSI president Michael Williamson, was to offer a comprehensive solution similar to the company's more elaborate POS systems, but "with simpler functionality and less startup time involved, designed specifically for districts with fewer resources."
