More than twenty years of working closely with lunch accounting software, lunch accounting administrators, and state representatives has all culminated into one major leap forward in lunch accounting technology. We are very proud to introduce the LCS 1000 appliance.
The LCS 1000 is an all inclusive server, created with one single purpose; to make the fastest lunch cashier program even faster, more reliable, and simpler to use. We are confident that it will revolutionize lunch accounting by providing an efficient, localized tool that addresses all necessities of a modern school lunch program. It houses all data for the central installation and will constantly communicate that information to Wordware's cloud servers via an active internet connection.
The LCS 1000 can be setup after breakfast and it will be ready to serve before lunch! That's the efficiency that this new appliance has to offer to your institution.
We have removed the need to install or transfer data from one office computer to another. No more time spent transferring programs from an old computer to a new one. No time consuming installations. No more problems with compatibility from one version of a Windows to another.
This box plugs into your network and is set up like any other server, then it is ready to go. No further involvement from a school technician is required. Wordware's friendly technical support staff will take over answering all questions and concerns, plus addressing the initial importing of the schools current information into the new system. You will lose absolutely no data and the process takes only minutes.
No servers set up in your school? That's just fine! The LCS 1000 works in a normal server environment, or can just be staged in the cafeteria alone, connected to one computer that wants to do it all, or as many computers as you need to get it all done. The perfect answer for any school, large or small.
Wordware knows that our customers have an expectation of us and we want to exceed that expectation. The LCS 1000 is our way to make the best lunch accounting program better while still providing the software you know and use every day. The introduction on the appliance adds an unprecedented stability to your lunch accounting and will provide you with something more.
We have added a few special features to increase the overall value that this tool can offer you in the form of automatic data synchronization, automatic email notifications, and automatic payment processing.
"Valuable" doesn't even begin to describe your lunch accounting information, and losing any of it is not an option. With this in mind, we are including the peace of mind that only automatic backups can bring and then taking it a step further. Not only will the LCS 1000 back up it's information every day, but it will also upload it to the Wordware Inc cloud servers as an extra level of protection. Your data will be safely stored in multiple locations, ensuring that you always have the ability to recover from any change in a matter of moments, so you always have a backup plan.
The most important thing to any organization is efficiency. You need to make the most of the time you have and you don't need distractions from the really important work. We want to help you make the most of your day, so in addition to uploading backups to our cloud servers, we will also be automatically updating the family information and account balances every night, removing the need for your lunch account manager to spend their valuable time with file uploads.
Communication is key, and we are not only providing keys for better communication, but we are also driving more efficient communication options by removing the need to constantly upload email addresses and monitor email notifications. We have added the ability for the LCS 1000 to automatically provide Wordware's email server with the email addresses of your family database and to send out low balance notifications to the families meeting your criteria for notification.
With the LCS 1000 we have integrated automatic e-payment processing. The payment information will be transmitted from the e-payment company directly to the LCS 1000, which will then add the payments to the family accounts without any needs for downloading payment files or manually entering in payment information. Everything is done in the background by the LCS 1000.
The LCS 1000 runs on a Linux operating system. All district access with remain at shared folder level, and there is no local user access to the OS. This allows us to retain backups and programs that are outside the general work area that might be mistakenly tampered with. There will usually be no need for any user to log in to the Linux OS and we have a remote tool set up to allow Wordware Technicians to log in if needed.
