About inTEAM

inTEAM has a 50-year legacy of assisting K-12 school nutrition departments with operational expertise, training, and technology. In recent years we have continued to innovate by incorporating best practices into “menu centric” digital technologies to help operators perform everyday tasks.  As a leading innovator within the child nutrition segment, inTEAM’s software solutions have transformed the way schools approach menu planning, making critical product data available in real time during the menu planning process.

inTEAM’s next challenge is to address the missing link of supply chain data, where operators have struggled for years building and maintaining integrated supply chain technology. The K-12 Data Sharing & Analytics Initiative was launched five years ago at an industry-wide summit to address the technology challenge.  Led by inTEAM, the result has been the creation of the GDSN Connect Database, a single K-12 focused product database with essential data for over 185,000 unique products from hundreds of K-12 food and non-food brands. Using standardized data resource as a core, stakeholders can build, share, and analyze quality data within school districts and across peer defined districts statewide and nationally. The GDSN Connect Database supplements product data from GS1 with information from other “silo” databases such as USDA Food Data Central and Food Buying Guide to provide a comprehensive standardized product database for use throughout K-12.
