School Nutrition Industry Conference
Gabe Aiello and Regional Sales Director Denise Lessard attended SNIC. As always we are happy to renew acquaintances and catch up with old friends. Attendance was greater than ever and the General Sessions concentrated on great marketing ideas. PCS customers were well represented with three present and former customers receiving FAME awards and Jessica Shelly (former Fame Award winner, Cincinnati PS) and Bertrand Weber (Minneapolis PS) serving as panelists for the USDA update session.

“I have been with Bloomington Schools for 33 years, most of them in Food Service. Our district has been with PCS since 1989. We started with the original stop and go light card readers, moved to POS-5’s and eventually went to the Breeze touch screens. We use TrakNOW for inventory and have Netcash machines to accept prepayments in all of our secondary sites. I have thoroughly enjoyed my years with Bloomington Schools and its partnership with PCS.”
The School Nutrition Magazine, January technology article, titled “Bits and Bytes of School Meal Management“, seeks to “lift the curtain” and see what challenges technology providers face, in providing the best solutions for their customers. Our Director of Product and Business Development and member of the SNA Industry Advisor Board, Gabe Aiello, comments along with other top technology company representatives. *Article is on pg. 38.
We hope that everyone has enjoyed their holidays and started the New Year with renewed energy.The pre and post holiday season is the busiest we have seen in a number of years. There are so many challenges facing our industry at this time and we are working hard to provide new and improved technology solutions as quickly as we can.
On that note, we want to remind all of our customers of that we are continuing to improve our technology on all existing systems. This year you will see significant upgrades to RIGHTrak, TrakNOW and PayPAMS. Our fully cloud/web based POS offering, which has been available since July, now has a number of successful installations. Whether new or improved technology is on your agenda, please contact your Account Representative to set up a meeting with one of our Product Specialists to see options that make the right fit for your district’s IT environment.
