How does it work?
Minute Menu CX is really two software packages in one: one for Sponsors of centers, and another for the centers themselves.
As a Sponsor, you install Minute Menu CX in your office. Minute Menu stores information on centers, their children, their purchase receipts, claim histories, on-site reviews, and (if you work with unaffiliated centers) payments.
Center <-------> Internet <--------> Sponsor
Each center that exists in your database is given a unique login and password. Then at the center, Minute Menu CX is installed and that center can then login to enroll children, record their menu production records, plan menus based on estimated attendance, and record meal counts.
Each month, the center simply clicks a button to submit their claim. Then, in the sponsor’s office, the sponsor tells Minute Menu CX to process that claim. The system automatically determines the appropriate free / reduced / base level for that claim (based upon rules appropriate to the state) and checks all the menus and attendance for compliance with USDA regulations, computing a claim.
The software stores all of it’s information on Internet servers that we maintain, so information is transmitted seamlessly between the center and the sponsor’s office. Data is backed up and kept secure, so you don’t have to worry about computer failures in the day care center (or your offices) causing any loss of data.
Minute Menu CX is available as a free trial to your agency if you would like to evaluate it, to see whether it meets your needs. For any agency getting started, we send step x step getting started instructions that can have you up and running in under 30 minutes, processing your first center claim. So try it now!
