ITHACA, N.Y., April 10, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CBORD®, the leading provider of food and nutrition management, cashless card, and integrated security software solutions, today announces new enhancements to NetNutrition® that support QR code access to nutrition and allergen information. A QR (quick response) code is a type of two-dimensional bar code that can be read by a smartphone, typically linking to a URL.
NetNutrition Easily Displays Nutrition Labels for Menu Items on Mobile Devices
CBORD's NetNutrition is an online software solution that lets customers view menu offerings, identify possible allergens or food intolerances, select diet preferences (e.g. vegan, kosher, sustainable), and analyze the nutritional content of meals. This latest enhancement gives customers the ability to scan QR codes to immediately view nutrition labels for specific items or directly access menus within NetNutrition.
QR codes can be placed on labels for pre-packaged items or on signage in dining locations. Codes posted throughout a food court or cafe can link the customer to the daily menu, along with an interactive nutritional calculator and allergen filter. NetNutrition's support of QR codes makes it simple for customers to plan and build their meals from the convenience of their mobile devices. Any changes to ingredients, recipes, or menus will be reflected in NetNutrition without needing to edit or replace the QR codes.
With NetNutrition, providing access to nutritional information has never been easier or more accurate. "We hear this time and again," explains Kate Hill, Product Director for CBORD, "that food service professionals need easy, convenient, and creative ways to display and promote nutrition information in dining areas. With NetNutrition, customers have the power to make informed, healthy decisions about the food they buy and eat."
Fully integrated with CBORD's Foodservice Suite® and NetMenu® software applications, NetNutrition automatically updates as it is powered by existing menu data. Most recently, the introduction of NetNutrition® Cloud™ makes the same capabilities available without the need for a premise-based application.
