TORONTO, Canada – October 15, 2012 – Intuitive thinking and product innovation have resulted in a highly efficient cashless system for staff and students at New Hampshire’s Bishop Guertin High School says ITC Systems CEO Campbell Richardson.
“We’ve modified the school’s existing systems to allow parents to add value to student accounts online,” he notes. “At the same time, staff in the food services financial management area have access to more sophisticated tracking information. It’s a big win for everyone.”
Bishop Guertin is a private Catholic High School in Nashua, New Hampshire, and it has 855 students in grades nine through 12. The school had offered cashless food service and vending for many years before switching to an ITC Systems one-card program in 2009.
Students’ cards have a contact chip rather than a magnetic stripe and the school has invested in ITC Systems’ Multi-Plan and Web Purchase programs.
“One of the big advantages of our original work with Bishop Guertin was that the school was able to eliminate automatic debit machines,” Mr. Richardson says. “They were expensive and often unreliable. As our relationship has evolved, we’ve been able to spot opportunities for providing even more efficiencies. This is very gratifying work.”
Bishop Guertin currently operates four registers and five vending machines. Lynn Morin, Director of Food Service for Nexdine, the school’s food service contractor, says she uses the ITC Systems MultiPlan program to track sales by class – freshman, sophomore, junior and senior. She then uses this data to plan special offers to students that increase participation by group.
“MultiPlan is the most stable piece of software I’ve ever used,” she says. “It just works.”
