The pandemic has had a particularly disruptive effect on the world’s children with tele-education now the norm in the U.S. and across the globe.
But it’s not only the rise of online classrooms that is changing the way the youngest generation lives. Although parents are largely still working from home, their need for childcare remains intact — and with many childcare centers still unable to fully open due to social distancing requirements, this industry has faced its own unique challenges to ensure business continuity without compromising quality of care.
Like many sectors, the childcare arena has taken the pandemic as an opportunity to accelerate digital transformation.
JoAnn Kintzel, CEO of Procare Solutions, a company that develops technology for childcare center back offices, recently told PYMNTS that the sector has an opportunity to accelerate modernization, particularly when it comes to payroll.
