Cloud Meals provides a simple, streamlined, and cost effective online solution to ordering school meals.
As the school, you will enter the possible meal selections for the coming weeks into the system. Parents will log in, place orders for their children, and pay instantly via a secure online checkout.
You are then able to extract selections from the system in a variety of formats, which can be passed onto your catering team.
It's that simple!
A few of the many advantages of using Cloud Meals are:
Our number one priority at Cloud Meals is security.
Using their web browser, both parents and schools access the system via the HTTPS protocol, with all communications running through an SSL certificate.
All the data in the system is stored on servers located in a secure data centre, sitting behind a WatchGuard Firebox firewall.
Cloud Meals has been specifically designed to make it as simple to use as possible, for both parents and schools.
With only a few clicks, parents can place multiple weeks of orders for several children, while schools can easily retrieve the selections to pass onto their catering team.
By storing all your data in the cloud, Cloud Meals can be securely accessed from anywhere with an internet connection.
For parents, this means allowing them to order their children’s meals when and where it’s convenient for them. For schools, it means being able to administer the system from any workstation, and removes the need for any arduous paperwork.
For parents using your system, they will want to be reassured they are working with something their child’s school has approved.
That’s why with Cloud Meals, they will see your school’s badge displayed prominently in the header, along with the schools contact details and any other information you wish to provide the parents with.
The best person to administer your data is you, and that’s why with Cloud Meals the school is in complete control of the data behind the system.
Using our easy to use CMS (content management system), you will be able to securely manage pupil data, meal descriptions, holiday dates, and much more.
Our system also caters for eligibility of free schools meals.
At Cloud Meals we understand that moving from one way of doing things to another can be tricky, and that’s why we will work closely with you to help ease the process of migrating to our system.
We have various tools in place to help with this, for example, a method of integrating the system with SIMS for easy retrieval of pupil data.
We have kept the pricing for Cloud Meals very simple.
You pay a small one off setup fee to get things up and running, followed by a small monthly fee, based on the number of pupils attending your school.
In terms of the money received from the meal orders, you keep all of it, minus a small transactional fee incurred from the payment gateway provider.
All fees listed exclude VAT
