Utah Extends Solutran Partnership with eWIC Smart Card Contract

Utah Extends Solutran Partnership with eWIC Smart Card Contract

Minneapolis, MN (December 18, 2019) — Solutran today announced it has the processing contract for the Utah Department of Health Women, Infants and Children (WIC) Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) Program.

Solutran has served the Utah WIC program with excellence for 20 years and will continue serving the nearly 50,000 Utah WIC participants with its proprietary S3 WIC EBT platform. Solutran’s S3 platform will be used to modernize the Utah WIC program and will allow participants to redeem portions of their benefits throughout the month versus spending all at once with traditional paper vouchers. This new capability will give Utah WIC participants more freedom to purchase food when their family needs it most.

The State of Utah plans to use Solutran’s eWIC Smart Card solution, the leading Smart Card solution that meets the 2020 eWIC mandate to provide participants access to benefits electronically. The smart card stores participant benefit information on a microchip and interacts in real time with POS systems, allowing for benefit redemption without any internet connectivity. By not relying on a store’s connectivity, Smart Card eWIC technology is able to authorize benefits when stores are offline, providing more consistent service to participants.

“Solutran’s top priority is providing program participants with uninterrupted access to their benefits,” said Carmen Nordstrand, Chief Operating Officer at Solutran. “Our team of highly experienced EBT professionals will work to assure Utah WIC participants that they can use their benefits when they need them.”

Solutran Kicks Off EBT Payment Processing for Wyoming WIC

Solutran Kicks Off EBT Payment Processing for Wyoming WIC

Minneapolis, MN (Mar 29, 2016) — Solutran is pleased to announce it has started processing Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) payments for the Wyoming Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC). Wyoming WIC has implemented the company’s Smart Card EBT solution and started processing transactions earlier this month.

Wyoming selected Solutran as its provider of a long-term EBT solution to transition from its in-house system, which was the first statewide offline EBT system created nearly 15 years ago.

“The goal of migrating to an external EBT system was to utilize the best technology to provide a more reliable, long-term solution for supporting the families we serve,” said Janet Moran, Wyoming WIC Program Manager. “The commitment and dedication to customer service that Solutran delivered throughout the project, as well as the hard work of our WIC staff, made this a reality.”

Supported on the advanced technology S3™ EBT platform, the Solutran Smart Card EBT is a system designed with an understanding of WIC programs and the current needs of an ever-evolving industry including a simple shopping experience for families and faster payment method for the programs retailers.

“We feel honored to provide our Smart Card EBT solution to the program that founded the first offline WIC EBT system,” said Barry Nordstrand, CEO of Solutran. “We look forward to taking the next step into the future of EBT with Wyoming.”

Wyoming’s WIC Program provides nutrition education, basic health services, and nutritious food benefits to low-income pregnant, postpartum and breastfeeding women, infants, and children up to the age of five who are at nutritional risk. The program provides services for its participants at 36 program locations throughout the state.

Solutran has provided processing support for WIC programs since 1989, and serves 65 state and Inter-Tribal Organizations (ITO’s) WIC programs across the country. Solutran has developed an EBT Smart Card solution and an EBT online solution, both of which are available to WIC programs as they transition to electronic payments.

 

About Wyoming WIC

The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) operates under the Wyoming Department of Health and provides supplemental foods, health care referrals, and nutrition education for low-income pregnant, breastfeeding, and non-breastfeeding postpartum women, and to infants and children up to age five who are found to be at nutritional risk. Families enrolled in SNAP, TANF or Wyoming Medicaid programs already qualify for WIC. Many working families are also eligible. With 19 local agencies and 17 outreach clinics in Wyoming, WIC serves approximately 10,500 women and children around the state.
