SIMS Dinner Money for Local Authorities
From daily supervisor lists and dinner numbers to weekly banking returns, payment lists, kitchen statistics and much more, managing school dinners demands more of your schools' office teams' time than it should.
SIMS Dinner Money enables schools to record, monitor and share pupil meal choices and track the financial aspects automatically.
Primary schools can gain an average of 2-3 hours of admin time per week using SIMS Dinner Money - larger primaries will save even more.
- Automatically communicate today’s meals to the kitchen
Schools can receive data automatically from SIMS Attendance to immediately let their kitchen know how many to cater for - against which menus.
- Make reporting simple
Bring together information on pupils and staff, meals and payments, term dates and non-teaching days automatically, and build letters and reports.
- Get dietary requirements right
Schools can customise the menu so they can create their own meals - answering the demand for healthy eating, specific diets or special occasions.
- Simplify payments
Record all payments for school dinner money however it is received – cash, credit card, cheque. Manage banking returns, outstanding monies and refunds.
- Automated debt chasing
Overdue monies are always a headache, as is issuing refunds - SIMS Dinner Money automates letters to parents who owe or are owed money.
- Instil confidence at local authority level
With high profile cases surrounding actual or perceived irregularities over dinner money management, SIMS Dinner Money provides rock solid reporting - without distracting time and resources from school offices or SLTs.
Tested and proven beneficial in schools country-wide, SIMS Dinner Money is a simple answer that will streamline processes and quickly pay for itself.
