Frequently Asked Questions
Why are we announcing a re-brand at LINQ?
We’re introducing a new LINQ to the K‑12 market—unveiling our new branding, logo, visual identity, and look & feel and LINQ’s K12 Business Platform. LINQ is 100% focused on K‑12 and our offerings have evolved to serve K‑12 Business Operations for districts, families, and state agencies across the nation.
What is LINQ’s K‑12 Business Platform?
Not only do you notice a new look and feel to our website experience, but today we announce the industry’s first K‑12 Business Platform. Our integrated LINQ platform is purpose-built by K‑12 experts for K‑12 professionals. We are changing the way K‑12 leaders manage their business operations to an integrated experience. This includes how we sell, implement, and support the cloud solutions that power K‑12 districts’ nutrition supply chain, business back office of HR, Payroll, and Financials. This also includes the interactions and relationships with district parents and guardians through intuitive payments and the digital transformation across all K‑12 business operations.
Why is LINQ announcing a new category for the K‑12 edtech market?
As the only provider of end-to-end cloud-based software supporting the business operations of K‑12 districts—from nutrition programs to finance, administration, and payments—LINQ is introducing a new market category: the K‑12 Business Platform.
Running K‑12 operations is about more than keeping the lights on. It’s about leveraging insights from district and school data to make impactful decisions—improving the K‑12 business ecosystem.
LINQ is bringing states and districts a new level of digital transformation and operational efficiency by providing a secure, single source of truth to manage compliance reporting, streamline workflows, control transactional processes, centralize financial management, and make insightful decisions using actionable, real-time data. And LINQ is bringing families easier ways to make meal and school fee payments, electronically complete and submit applications for free and reduced meals and monitor student spending through a single source with convenient 24/7 mobile and browser-based access.
What changes are being made within the support organization to reflect the re-branding?
We are making updates to our support phone line. To streamline processes and give our clients one phone number to call for all LINQ solutions, we are consolidating into one phone line 1-888-GO4LINQ (888-464-5467). Current phone numbers will be routed to the new number.
What will clients see when receiving invoices or other financial details?
LINQ’s Client invoices, AR statements, and the credit card authorization forms have been updated with our new logo and visuals. We’re looking to provide clients with Smart Invoices—watch for more details in 2024!
