Business Challenge

Marisa McClellan has been with Quincy for 11 years. Quincy had been a long time customer of Procare until they were recently forced to make a choice. According to Marisa, “Procare was offering an upgraded version of their software at a set price. If we chose to stick with their current version, they would no longer offer us support. If we chose to pay the money and accept the upgrade, we would be learning a whole new system that didn’t offer us any solutions to our current problems we had with the old version of Procare. We wanted to be able to track allergies and medications, activate or deactivate all families easily, and build labels quickly and effectively.” So Marisa and Quincy decided “If we were going to have to learn a whole new system anyway, we’d better make sure we pick one that solves our problems.”

Solution

After some consideration, Quincy chose to go with EZ-CARE2 Childcare Management Software as their solution. Marisa stated the biggest reason for choosing EZ-CARE2 over other solutions, including Procare, was because “We can customize the system so much and that was really the big thing for us.” Marisa also noted that “EZ-CARE2’s data transfer option was very convenient and saved us a lot of manual data entry.”

If we were going to have to learn a whole new system anyway, we’d better make sure we pick one that solves our problems.

Key Results

Marisa noted “Medication and allergy lists, along with many sets of labels can, be created quickly. What used to take a few hours now only takes about 30 minutes each time. Email lists are also easily created for large email blasts. We have nine different sites and used to manually go through mailings to find email addresses. Now they’re pulled right from EZ-CARE2’s unified database which saves hours of time.” Marisa also said that the data transfer that was used probably saved her program an entire week’s worth of work.

Finally, Marisa expressed her satisfaction with “the excellent EZ-CARE2 support team. They’re friendly, extremely helpful, and make you feel like there are no silly questions.” That perspective doesn’t surprise us. At Softerware, it’s essential to us to make our new users feel comfortable and confident using EZ-CARE2. We want them to feel that they can contact us with any questions they have, and we’re glad to see that we’ve accomplished that here. Best of all, we offer inexpensive support for all versions of EZ-CARE2, and our upgrades are included at no additional cost as part of our comprehensive support program.
