What is CNDataSync?

CNDataSync is the analytics engine that collects product data from suppliers and menu and production data from districts and then generates intelligent analytics.

Schools use CNDataSync’s school portal for viewing key performance indicators (average daily participation, meals per labor hour, etc.) and other operational metrics that provides insights into how their schools are performing compared to peer schools.  Suppliers use CNDataSync’s supplier portal for gaining insight into how their products are performing within schools and may generate their own custom reports using off the shelf analytics tools.

This innovative software will generate win-win data analytics for everyone across the school food ecosystem.  Here are some of the analytics you can expect to receive:
