IRVINE, Calif., May 08, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cie Digital Labs (CDL), an accelerator of innovation for large enterprises and a growth accelerator for emerging startups, today announced its partnership with executive Brad Blankenship to launch TITAN School Solutions, a child nutrition SaaS solutions and services provider for K-12 school districts. Titan’s comprehensive set of solutions are modernizing the lunch line, empowering schools to spend less resources on managing meal plans and more on serving students.

Anderee Berengian, Co-founder and CEO at CDL, and Justin Choi, Co-founder and Head of Product Strategy at CDL, have joined Titan’s Board of Directors. This announcement follows on the heels of CDL’s recent launch of mobile tire installation company ASAP Tire.

“Over the past decade, the market for software in education has significantly consolidated as schools have increasingly voiced their need for better customer service and more flexible solutions,” said Brad Blankenship, President at Titan School Solutions. “Our amazing success to date is due to the fact that we built our solutions from the ground up, specifically designed to make school nutrition professionals’ lives easier and foster deeper engagement with parents. CDL’s team of strategic, operational, and technical experts is truly unmatched, and I look forward to leveraging their capabilities to further accelerate Titan’s growth strategy.”

Accessible across any device, Titan’s cloud-based solutions combined with consistently reliable customer support allows faster processing of meal applications, more seamless management of school’s nutrition related finances, and greater alignment between parents and schools in real-time. The company now serves more than 350,000 students across 70 school districts, improving student performance through nutrition-focused meals.

“It’s clear that Titan’s solutions were built from the ground up with its end users in mind. With Titan doing the heavy lifting, our entire Nutrition program has become more efficient for staff, parents, and students,” said Andrew Mercado, Technology Director of the Oro Grande School District, a client of Titan Solutions. “Titan immediately had full knowledge of the problems we were facing--we have received ongoing support since the successful implementation, and as a result of their dedication, we now have a tool that helps us efficiently serve breakfast and lunch to our students every day.”

For Titan, CDL helps accelerate the company’s expansion in emerging markets nationwide. Specifically, CDL provides strategic expertise and operational capabilities to help avoid the execution challenges startups face as they scale, such as spending funds and time on operational functions that aren’t core to company innovation. CDL provides resources to Titan’s team across web and mobile development, Business Development, Marketing, Design, Finance, and Human Resources.

“Titan has had unbelievable success because they know exactly what school districts and parents need when it comes to providing essential nutrition education and nutrition for young children--down to every last detail,” said Anderee Berengian, Co-founder CEO at Cie Digital Labs. “I can’t wait to see Titan solutions become deeply integrated in school districts’ nutrition-focused infrastructure across the country. Combined with our deep experience across various startups as both investors and entrepreneurs, we’re excited to help Brad and his team accelerate their vision.”
