Transaction Processing for Schools
LINQ Launches Parent Payment Portal
LINQ has launched LINQ Connect, a new SaaS offering that provides payment processing and other services to allow parents to pay for services like school lunches and field trips.
The system also supports related services, such as notifications for low balances or debt; housing important information like allergies; providing nutrition information; and setting spending limits.
"Districts are feeling the negative effects of staffing shortages, budget restrictions and school meal debt, so they need a system to easily manage communication and financial transactions with parents and guardians," said Bryan Jones, CEO of LINQ, in a prepared statement. "LINQ Connect offers a solution that simplifies the management of information and financial transactions throughout the school year for our district partners, easing daily interactions for busy parents and students, and helping schools strengthen their relationships with the communities they serve."
The previous iteration of LINQ Connect was the TITAN Family Portal, which, according to LINQ, is in use at 16,000 schools across 1,500 districts in the United States.
Further details can be found on the LINQ Connect portal.
