JSA StudentLink to Provide Global Meal Plan Portal at New York University

January 9, 2017

JSA Technologies is pleased to announce the expansion of its partnership with New York University (NYU). JSA StudentLink will power NYU’s next generation, global meal plan portal. The Meal Plan Portal is an optional module of JSA’s StudentLink and will go live summer, 2017.

New York University is a private nonprofit research university based in New York City. Founded in 1831, NYU is considered one of the world’s most influential research universities. Among its faculty and alumni are 37 Nobel Laureates, over 30 Pulitzer Prize winners, over 30 Academy Award winners, and hundreds of members of the National Academies of Sciences.

Over 70,000 NYU students and employees around the world will use the StudentLink Meal Plan Portal solution to manage their meal plan assignments through their mobile devices.  NYU expects this solution to enrich the cardholder experience, enhance administrative efficiency, and reduce costs.  A configurable rules engine allows NYU Dining to automatically enforce their business rules regarding meal plan eligibility, pricing and changes. Meal plan is automated through live data connections with NYU’s student information and human resource systems.

Tammy Johnson, President of JSA Technologies, said of the partnership, “We are excited to expand our partnership with NYU on this next generation global Meal Plan Portal project. We especially value working with the NYU team who are so skilled and motivated to make this project a success.”

Tammy continues, “Managing meal plan assignments has evolved into a complex process for many schools. While some institutions have attempted to automate the process, for most it remains a largely manual endeavor. We have been providing meal plan management solutions for years. Working with NYU is allowing us to significantly advance our offering.”

Chris Tang, NYU Associate Vice President, said of the partnership, “For many years JSA has been a reliable service provider who understands our business needs.   We are pleased to enter into this next phase of our partnership with a JSA team fully committed to enhancing our student experience.”
