Ryde School, Isle of Wight has been using TouchAbacus for 2 years. It replaced tickets for free school meals and simple cash registers. Becky White says the biggest benefit has been accuracy because all products are listed on the terminal. It’s also given more control over what pupils can buy. For Becky, speed’s an advantage of using TouchAbacus too because eliminating cash has improved service time.
Does Becky recommend TouchAbacus? Absolutely! It’s helped with administration, given the parents more control and removed the stigma surrounding free school meals. Plus she says meal sales have increased.
