InTouch has completed an additional integration with a food service vendor where the InTouch and TouchBase applications collect food service deposits either over the counter or online, respectively, and pass these deposits to the food service system. SDS (www.schooldiningsystem.com) and InTouch development staff worked collaboratively on developing this application interface.
InTouch and TouchBase are state of the art applications which flatten the district’s workflows, streamline operations, lower costs and focuses on parent convenience. This InTouch/SDS interface is another example of (a) two companies working together to serve our mutual customers better and (b) an integration where the parent can have a singular payment experience for all transaction types. There are many online payment sites, but only one end-to-end integrated InTouch Suite connecting transactions from parents to general ledger and throughout the district.
This interface is very inexpensive yet delivers considerable investment return by lowering labor costs, improving parent transaction experience and a strengthening of overall internal controls. We have several integrations; please call our support desk to ask if yours is on our list. We will work with any food service application willing to assist the district in leveraging InTouch technology. Most best of breed applications will want to integrate, accordingly let us know.
Interfaces will be discussed and presented at our upcoming InTouch user group conferences and at upcoming ASBO-type conferences.
