Information such as name, address, contact details etc. can be recorded, along with more specialist information such as dietary requirements, dislikes and account payment frequency.

Menu options and Menu Cycle Management
Our meals on wheels software allows users to set up and manage menus and menu cycles. As part of the service, KL2 can pre loaded the various menu/food choice options that will be offered to clients. Each menu can be linked to specific foods allowing ethnic, specialist and traditional food groups to be formed; this allows real client needs to be addressed, while reducing repetition.
Utilisation of the proprietary Menu Choice functions allows full customisation and choice to be offered to the client base. By profiling dietary needs and dislikes within the client records it is also possible to match client requirements against what is on offer to ensure that production and delivery is both suitable and liked by your client.
Our meals on wheels software allows for the full control of multiple menu cycles including weekend & bank holiday, plus seasonal variations.
The Meals System software allows users to profile the frequency and the way a client will settle their account. This information can be made available in report form or can be sent to hand held devices used specifically for cash collection. The accounts function keeps a running balance based on the set up of the service that is to be provided. This running balance is used in conjunction with the client payment profile to assist the service provider in the process of account settlement at the appropriate time.
There are also options for exporting transaction data to central accounting packages such as SAP, Agresso and Integra
