The National Association of College Auxiliary Services (NACAS) has named mobile ordering and commerce application, Tapingo, as the winner of its Outstanding Business Partner of the Year Award.

Each year, the NACAS Business Partner Advisory Group -- comprised of board members, auxiliary representatives and industry leaders -- evaluates business partners within the higher education community. The winning partner embodies the ideals of "outstanding customer service, supports the educational process at NACAS institutions, and is the one that contributes most significantly to the success of NACAS through creative and generous means."

“Tapingo has become an important part of the NACAS community,” says Kelsey Finn, NACAS Chief Executive Officer. “As we work to enhance our campus programs, Tapingo’s app and service give us a powerful tool to engage students. It’s been great to see them grow as a company and partner with so many of our colleges and universities. I’m excited to see where they go from here.”

“Tapingo’s ongoing innovation helps us meet our growing needs as administrators," adds Gheretta Harris, Associate Vice President at Ferris State University and NACAS Board Member. "Their app has allowed us to expand our toolbox of services and working with their staff has been effortless.”

Tapingo has partnered with more than 200 higher education institutions to provide a more convenient dining experience for students and staff. Processing nearly one-hundred thousand express pickup and delivery orders a day, Tapingo provides a single app to support the full range of on-campus dining. Working across all food service groups and card systems, the app offers real-time order information, menu management, trend data, and dynamic print throttling for efficient operations.

“When we launch new services, we want to make sure they enhance the student experience while supporting our key strategic initiatives,” says Jason Rex Tolliver, Vice Chancellor at the University of Illinois at Chicago. “After five years and multiple campus implementations, I’ve seen how Tapingo gives students a better dining experience and increases the profitability of our business units – it’s no wonder they’re being recognized as an industry leader.”

The Outstanding Business Partner of the Year Award was presented on Sunday, November 5, at The Broadmoor Resort & Spa in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Accepting the award on behalf of Tapingo was Ben Anderson, the company's director of campus engagement.

“We are incredibly honored to receive this award and thankful to all the institutions that have partnered with us along the way,” says Ben Anderson, Director of Campus Engagement. “Working with this group of professionals has been a pleasure. We look forward to bringing even more innovation to auxiliary service departments and the campus communities they serve.”
