SchoolXpress Canteen


SchoolXpress® for Canteens

The SchoolXpress Canteen module has been designed to make it easy for parents to order tuckshop online quickly and for canteen staff to be able to efficiently put together daily orders, error and stress-free. 

24/7 Easy Ordering
Parents can quickly and easily place orders 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. They can also place multiple orders for future dates for multiple children in one transaction. 
Reduced Admin

Remove the need for volunteers and staff to handle cash orders and enjoy reduced administration counting cash, balancing the till and visiting the bank. 

Cashless Ordering

Put your entire menu online for parents to purchase using our wallet system and minimise card fees. Use one wallet across classes and schools.
