Meeting a new family and enrolling their child is one of the best parts of running a child care center.
Not nearly as much fun — the stack of enrollment paperwork for parents to complete, keep track of and remember to return before their child’s first day.
Filling out paperwork with pen and paper is tedious for busy families, both those new to your center as well as for current clients. And it’s a pain for you to input all that information into your system.
Procare Solutions offers you a simpler way that bypasses firing up a printer or fax machine and eliminates the need to decipher handwriting. It’s called eDocuments, and it empowers you and your families to electronically sign documents within Procare.

Using eDocuments, you can create an electronic signature, format documents and store signed documents in one central location.
And you can do it all within Procare!
The eDocuments feature gives your center a solution to create, send, review and store digital documents. It’s a way to digitize a significant part of your workflows that currently rely on pen and paper.
Use eDocuments to send and manage all sorts of documents, including enrollment contracts, incident reports, permission slips and more.
It takes much of the hassle out of reminding parents and staff to complete their paperwork. You can prompt them to review documents by email, and they can digitally sign a document — no need to download, print, sign, then return to you.
It also simplifies finding that information once you have it. Documents are conveniently stored in user profiles so they’re accessible.
And parents and staff can review and digitally sign documents from the Procare child care mobile app!
You have better things to do than deal with mountains of paperwork. With eDocuments, you can be confident that you have all the necessary documents for your staff, and for enrolled as well as prospective families, at your fingertips.
