Proven in the Business of Child Care
Procare is the No. 1 name in child care software – used by more than 30,000 child care businesses across the country. For over 30 years, child care professionals have looked to Procare to provide real-time information for making critical decisions, maintaining compliance with local and state regulations, and adhering to business best practices.
Backed by People Who Know and Love the Business of Child Care
Software can seem impersonal, but it’s important to know that there are people behind it, working hard to ensure it makes your jobs easier and more fulfilling. At Procare, we’re comprised of nearly 200 people with backgrounds in child care, education, administration and more – all dedicated to our customers’ success. We’ve been around for more than three decades, and there’s a reason for that – we are each passionate about helping child care businesses because we know they’re the bedrock of our children’s future.
Driven by Our Core Values
At Procare, our six core values are inherent in everything we do. They’re our guideposts for how we do business and how we treat each other:
- Grow together
- Be a driver
- Wear the customer hat
- Elevate one another
- Respect all perspectives
- Keep our promises
Procare saves us many hours every week. We do not figure accounts or depend on spreadsheets, or even correct data entry. We do have about 5 parents that like to pay cash, but the other 50 or so families all pay with debit card or auto debit, which automatically posts to their account and updates. It helps us to look professional and current. It is also a great safety feature. Procare has a place for pictures of each child, parent, and anyone the parent authorizes to pick up their children. So we can quickly access who can pick up a child and what they look like. Everyone at my center loves Procare and it improves the quality of my business.
“Fast, Professional, East-To-Understand”
Wonderful experience with my customer service representative – or should I say expert. My questions were addressed with ease and I was even given tips and advice to make my navigation with the software even easier than it was before.
I love that Tuition Express is overall self-explanatory and easy to get used to. It’s a plus that their customer service is excellent and makes me feel confident that any issues or questions our center comes upon will be solved almost immediately.
Tuition Express provides seamless interaction between Procare Select and billing. The system is easy for my staff and our parents to use. As a business owner, it is great to be able to access the software remotely via the cloud. In addition, the reports are easy to pull and easy to understand.
“We use Tuition Express to process our weekly income and love it!”
Tuition Express saves time and man hours. It is flawless in helping us acquire payment from each of our families. The creators and software managers at Tuition Express really know the world of Learning Centers and have created and maintained an effective tool for helping us charge for enrollment, registration, weekly tuition and other miscellaneous charges in a manner that is time effective and thorough. The customer service is top notch!
“Our life was made simpler!”
We have taken the manpower out of collections. This system gives us automation. We are able to build better relationships with our clients because the money issue is solved.
Collecting tuition used to be a full time job for my business manager. Now she is able to put energy into other projects because we have streamlined the collection of payments.
Our tuition fees are paid on time. We do not have to track clients down for payment. Most of them use the ACH option or pay from their phones.
There is nothing that I don’t like about Tuition Express. It has made my job so much easier. It has made the weekly collection of tuition seamless. We use ProCare Cloud as well and our parents even have the option to pay from their phones.
Overall, my experience with Tuition Express has been positive. The customer service has been excellent as well as the product and results. Tuition Express is easy to use and provides a great ROI! It helped our early care and education centers ensure that tuition was billed on time, the correct tuition amount was billed, that tuition was collected on time, and that proper late fees and discounts were assessed. This made budgeting and auditing so much easier. Parents appreciated the convenience of being able to make tuition payments with a credit card and being able to pay remotely.
Most of all, I am not posting payments, writing out deposits, driving to the bank all the time, which gives me extra time for other responsibilities. I love the fact that the receipts are emailed, it saves on paper. My parents LOVE the emailed receipts, how fast they can check out their children, swipe their card, and be done!
I rarely make deposits any more. At first we had only a few parents sign up for Tuition Express, but now I only have maybe 2 payments a week that I need to deposit. Sometimes we go a week to 2 weeks without a payment by check or cash. It gives me time to focus on other things.
AMAZING! We would have to remind the same families to pay their tuition weekly and now it is all collected automatically.
Tuition Express has made the office more efficient. There is less time spent collecting outstanding tuition balances. The parents have access to their account information around the clock!
The Tuition Express ledger function is how we track and process all of our tuition charges to customers. This is an integral part of our business. I like that this product is very straightforward. It’s easy to understand and easy for our customers to use. We process all of our credit card payments through Tuition Express, and we use it to manage our Account Receivables.
The benefits we’ve realized by using Tuition Express is that we get emails to see when payments are made before they even post to the account. This allows us to better budget when payments are coming in. The best thing I like most about Tuition Express is the convenience of processing tuition payments along with electronic deposits of online payments.
“We love it!”
It’s easy for all of us, although there are many options it is quick and everyone caught on easily. It’s been awesome having the accounting pretty much done for me because all the numbers are right there!
I like how easy it is to use, I like how everything is connected. We have cloud storage so it’s so convenient to access from anywhere! It’s nice that the employee’s information is kept in the same place as everything else. There are so many great features that I can’t pick a favorite, but I do love being able to see daily numbers etc. The billing is smooth.
Procare allows me to “work smart and not hard.” I have used this software for almost ten years and this company is constantly improving – great product! I have referred several other Daycare Providers to this program and it has been a great benefit to them as well. I must comment that I am especially grateful that I was able to start small and move into more aspects of this software as I grew – there was and is always another “piece” to move into as the business grows.
Procare has been a great benefit to me as an Administrator of a Small Business. Record keeping is awesome. It is user friendly to the parents and my staff to include: time clock and registering children in and out daily. It has been very helpful to me especially with Tuition Express which allows parents to pay with a credit card, bank draft and more. Options for clients is always a “PLUS”. Generating and printing reports is a whiz. I especially enjoy being able to complete my own payroll. Great Software!
We have used Procare since 1996 and tried 2 other systems prior to finding out more about Procare through use of their demo. We’ve upgraded each version which has enhanced services each time. The sales and technical support personnel are very informative, friendly, and accessible. We also use Tuition Express which makes collections a breeze. Additionally, we use the key-less entry system for enhanced security. Procare has kept up with the needs of families and childcare center management by making these additional options.
Overall the software has been able to provide us with a more efficient use of our time.
Procare is very easy to use and has many functions that assist in the overall operations of the child care program that I own and manage. It makes record-keeping very easy and less time consuming allowing us to devote more of our time to the children and our staff.
