Eliminate Manual Data Entry
Manual data entry is not only time consuming, but frequently leads to mistakes due to human error. Automatic application handling allows for batch scans of 25-50 free and reduced lunch applications with one click of a button.
Despite qualifying, many students simply don’t participate for free and reduced meals. Increase program involvement and income by detecting students who have not reapplied with their siblings. Identify students eligible to obtain meal benefits by connecting family members with previous application history.
Inaccurate eligibility statuses can cause serious issues for reimbursements and compliance. Instantly distinguish application type and eligibility (i.e. SNAP, foster child, income) determined in accordance to USDA guidelines. Automatic selection of requests for verification, and easy tracing of the applications through the process will support complying with USDA requirements.
Handwritten applications and paper processing often leads to errors and requires excess work. Automated processing leads to greater process efficiency and enhanced audit readiness.
