New Technology for Fall!

Whether your students will be in-school or virtual, we can help! (For Free)

  • Parents can pre-order meals, even if their students are 100% virtual-learning this Fall
    • By utilizing MyPaymentsPlus to collect parent requests for meal pickups, you will have advanced notice of these pre-order requests and a helpful roster to keep track of participation. This will come in handy when prepping for curbside, drive-thru or grab ‘n go pickups.
    • If you decide to enable pre-ordering for virtual students, we can assist you in sending out email blasts to parents and creating marketing materials specific to your program, please contact us with any questions you may have.

*New Product Alert* Introducing: Horizon Classroom Ordering

We’re making it easier to serve student meals in the classroom! Horizon Classroom Ordering enables staff members to places order for their students, in advance, so that the cafeteria can plan ahead and help reduce food waste significantly. We’re working hard to have this ready for you before school startup. Keep an eye out for more updates on this.

We Have More Ways to Pay

We understand that the health and safety of students and staff are a top priority. For those who are planning to remain open and serving students in the cafeteria in the Fall, we’ve made it easier to support an environment looking to decrease germ spread by implementing a more touchless cafeteria. Below are two of our most recent capabilities that will be available very soon: 

New digital credentials for MyPaymentsPlus

A bar code can now be generated for students to pass through the line effortlessly. This new feature makes it easier to provide students and staff with an additional option for touchless, convenient payments. The bar code that enables the scanner to pull funds directly from the student’s MyPaymentsPlus account.  For more information on the release of this feature, please reach out to us.

 

Now Accepting Apple Pay!

Horizon customers can now enjoy the convenience of Apply Pay. Students and staff can simply use their iPhone or Apple Watch to pull funds from the credit card of their choice. Not an iOS user? That’s okay! Horizon School Technology has also enabled the capability to accept all major credit cards in the lunch line! This year, we’re making it easier to keep the cash at home and help speed up those lunch lines.

As always, we wish you continued success as you plan for a healthy return to school. If you are looking for more ways to serve your students or need advice on how to master the products you already have, please reach out to us.

Warm Regards,

The Horizon Team
