Visual Solutions LLC provides a unique operational reporting software product line for school food service entities called MyFUNDamentals. MyFUNDamentals products consist of the core application and over 70 add-on modules and utilities that seamlessly extend the capabilities of the core application based on the particular needs of any school district operation. We offer over 20 direct-connection imports for the most commonly used POS, Inventory, and Receiving BOH software providers used in the school foodservice industry. In addition, we offer extremely flexible text-based or spreadsheet imports for all major areas (Financial, Meal Counts, Eligibility Counts, Inventory Values, Labor Hours) of the MyFUNDamentals software. If sources of import are not available, then data may be keyed or may be generated from a vast array of software modules easily integrated into MyFUNDamentals. Other add-on modules are available to handle common scenarios and needs such as Prep Kitchen distribution of expenses, Contracted Meal Programs, Claims Exports, CEP/Provision Meal Allocation, and many more.
MyFUNDamentals
Visual Solutions, LLC was awarded a USDA grant in 2000, administered by the Institute of Child Nutition (formerly the National Food Service Management Institute) Research Department at the University of Southern Mississippi, to develop a software product available to all schools and school districts that adhered to ICN's document Financial Management Information System. After much research, the document was finalized in 2005 and can be downloaded from a link on this web site. ICN's FMIS document establishes guidelines for both financial and efficiency measurements and reporting for the school food service industry. The resulting software product, MyFUNDamentals (formerly NFSMI FUNDamentals) has been used by hundreds of school districts since it's public release in July, 2000. Through that time, the software has continued to improve and expand based on the needs of our customers.

Customized for your business needs
Visual Solutions offers a wide variety of imports and add-on modules that can be added to the software menus and arranged in the order that they should be performed. The menu options are the required monthly processes to obtain all analysis data. School districts may purchase add-on modules separately or at an upgrade price. If purchased at an upgrade price then all importing, record generators, and modules not explicitly designated as 'not included in upgrades' are made available when needed.
