Pre-ordering with Impact



East Renfrewshire Council primary schools are embracing classroom pre-ordering via interactive whiteboards using the Impact cashless catering solution. Since the introduction of whiteboard pre-ordering in the schools, where students can quickly and easily order their lunch in advance on an interactive whiteboard in the mornings, staff have noticed a reduction in food waste and quicker, more efficient service at lunchtime.

Coupled with their restaurant service, where the dining hall is pre-set with cutlery, condiments, water, and sides, the children can be seated and their chosen hot meal delivered to the table. The organisation and fluidity of mealtimes has been improved ten-fold. Head teachers, teaching staff, school administration, catering staff and students are all enjoying the benefits that daily classroom pre-ordering has brought them; the children get their chosen meal, the ordering of food is completed within 5 minutes per class, there has been a noticeable reduction in food waste, lunchtimes are quicker, less stressful and more efficient and there has been an increase in the uptake of school meals.
