ST. PAUL, Minn., Jan. 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Most adults are accustomed to choosing what they want to eat at each meal. However, when they enter a senior housing or skilled nursing facility, the option to make food choices has traditionally gone away. On the operations side, rising food costs place stress on already tight budgets.
Eldermark Software LLC, a leading senior housing software provider, is pleased to announce its new partnership with eMenuCHOICE® LLC (a Lyngblomsten company), developer of a web-based dining software tool of the same name. The agreement gives Eldermark the exclusive license to market and distribute eMenuCHOICE®.
"We are excited to become part of the dining experience," said Craig Patnode, president and CEO of Eldermark. "The eMenuCHOICE® module rounds out our core technology stack offering," Patnode added.
"Lyngblomsten is pleased to be partnering with Eldermark to provide eMenuCHOICE® to other senior living and skilled nursing settings," said Jeff Heinecke, president and CEO of Lyngblomsten. "This marks the beginning of a new day for senior living."
What is eMenuCHOICE®?
eMenuCHOICE® is a comprehensive web-based software tool that enables a more efficient mealtime process through having residents choose on a digital device what food they want for their meals. Food orders are electronically transmitted to the kitchen. Not only is eMenuCHOICE® packed with features for the residents of senior living environments, but it is also robust in features that staff appreciate. "In an industry that still mostly manages the dining experience from paper and manual processes, eMenuCHOICE® will revolutionize the mealtime process," said Patnode.
Because eMenuCHOICE® integrates with other Eldermark software, resident data does not need to be re-entered when a facility chooses this module.
"While we set out with a resident and tenant focus, we soon realized eMenuCHOICE® improved staff efficiency while enhancing our ability to control unnecessary food waste, thereby saving money," Heinecke said.
Patnode underscores the attractive financial elements that are inherent with eMenuCHOICE®. "The upfront investment is minimal, and the ongoing price point is affordable so that return on investment is received early on," he assured.
