App helps manage school lunch expenses

Heartland School Solutions, a division of Heartland Payment Systems, has launched a mobile payments application for parents of school-aged children to manage school meal expenses from smart phones and tablets.

Available on Apple iOS, Android and Windows Mobile, Heartland’s new® app enables parents to use their smartphones or mobile devices to prepay for student meals, replenish their child’s account using credit cards, debit cards or electronic checks, and view recent activity for their children while on the go. The app also allows parents to view current account balances and student meal purchases, arrange recurring payments when their account reaches a low balance threshold, and set daily or weekly spending limits.
