Horizon bolsters customer-focused position with launch of MyProgramPlus and MyCommunityEdPlus for child care, childhood family education and community education
ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- It’s now easier for school districts and the families they serve to manage online enrollments, registrations and payments. Developed by Horizon Software International, the new MyHorizonPlus solution serves as a central online access point that streamlines districts’ and consumers’ administration of back-to-school orientation; school fees; school meals; extracurricular activities; community education; before- and after-school childcare; facilities; and more.
MyHorizonPlus also now serves as the over-arching brand for Horizon’s entire suite of products – which, in addition to the popular MyPaymentsPlus, includes two new solutions for districts.
MyProgramPlus is a new cloud-based, online registration and payment system that helps consumers find and register for childhood family education and child care services, while MyCommunityEdPlus – also cloud-based – is for community education marketing and class registration.
Both solutions provide room reservation, facilities management, reporting and other functions that simplify program administration.
“Horizon has long been recognized as an innovator that understands how to make it easier for consumers and school administrators to manage online transactions,” says Randy Eckels, president of Horizon. “The launch of MyHorizonPlus – along with MyCommunityEdPlus and MyProgramPlus – demonstrates our continued commitment to bringing the best solutions to school districts and parents. Further, these products complement MyPaymentsPlus – participation in school meal programs, extracurricular activities, childcare services, parenting classes and adult-education programs can all be increased through one secure, trusted partner.”
Horizon recently launched the MyPaymentsPlus mobile app for Apple iPhone® and iPad®. The free app is the first of its kind – helping busy parents and guardians make school meal payments via mobile devices. The app also enables parents to see what foods their children choose in the cafeteria, a feature that can be helpful for parents seeking to instill healthy eating habits. The MyPaymentsPlus app is also being developed for Google’s Android operating system, and new features will be released in future generations of the product.
