State College, PA, May 31, 2006 --(PR.com
)-- Focal Tech is pleased to announce the availability of a free preview of the 2006-2007 version of the LunchTime School Lunch Software Online Parental Access and Account Funding modules via it’s website at www.lunchtimesoftware.com. By making the parental access modules available for a free preview, school administrators, business managers, food service managers, and parents will be able to see first hand how easy the software is to use. The software allows schools to reduce overhead by not having to chase down bad checks and provides parents with the peace of mind that their child’s lunch money will be placed in the proper place.
The LunchTime Online parental access and account funding modules are unique in that school districts have the ability to manage and host this application internally within their school district. A new feature for the 2006-2007 school year is the ability to use the web modules as a hosted service supported by Focal Tech. Another unique feature of the LunchTime online modules are that the school district is not charged a per transaction fee by the Software. The only transaction fees that charged are the fees levied by the credit card merchant.
According to Steve Ramsey, “We were finding that smaller schools did not have the IT infrastructure in place to support our online application. Since these modules are a valuable part of our school lunch software package, we implemented a hosted service that provides school districts of all sizes an affordable way to provide parents with the online service. There are really no drawbacks to using our hosted service as opposed to hosting it internally because all of the data integration happens automatically. The nice thing about our hosted solution is that we host all of our websites at our State College facility. We do not use a third party hosting service. Everything is installed and supported from State College. We are excited about being able to offer a hosted service.”
