Hosted Childcare Software Provides Affordable Solution to Enable Growth and Time Savings
“The convenience and benefit of the hosted system was also a big selling point as well. We don’t have an IT person, so the automatic backups and upgrades were perfect for us. The monthly payments for the hosted system, instead of a one-time investment, made it easier on us financially. We added TimeClock as another way to reduce manual data entry, and also because we were missing out on revenue. Parents were dropping kids off early or picking them up late but, because it was too much to manage manually, we weren’t billing correctly for these overages.”
When asked how much time EZ-CARE2 has saved them, Rachel replied “It’s a big number, I don’t even know where to start. The time it took to enter all of our data before EZ-CARE2 was overwhelming. I would say that what used to take two full days now only takes a couple of hours. Our communication with parents has changed dramatically too because it’s so much easier. We can email their invoices, easily mail-merge letters, and more, so our overall communication has become much less time consuming and much more effective. We expect to see an increased number of registrations next year because of all this.”
“We haven’t fully implemented TimeClock yet, but we’re expecting to see more accurate record keeping and an increase in funds. We’ll be able to track exactly when students are dropped off and picked up and apply the necessary charges. Tracking our own staff and doing away with paper is another big benefit.”
Rachel concluded, “Working with EZ-CARE2’s staff has been a really pleasant experience. Everything was great and they answered all of our questions as needed which made the transition very smooth.”
