Kommentare: Their support and product knowledge is exceptionally.

Vorteile:

It’s flexibility and functionality. The integration of auto posting payments through the app directly to the customers accounts.

Some aspects of the software do require some learning. Some of the functionality is quite complex. But this gives you great flexibility.

Everything you need in one package

Vorteile:

Connect software does all the management tasks that we need to run our business all in one programme. Parents love the ParentZone and we like the ability to easily run various reports to help that our management team operate efficiently.

Nachteile:

As we were one of he first companies to use the software we have been a few teething problems as the software has evolved however they do get resolved

Our opinion

3,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: Improving as time goes on.

Vorteile:

We like the fact that parents have access to the app whenever suits them especially if a child is upset we can directly forward some reassuring pictures to help ease anxiety. You can return to obs throughout period by saving info.

Nachteile:

You cannot go back on register to check as to whether a child was in. From a parents perspective we cannot see how they see the app and upload images too Also sometimes it gets stuck and takes time to redo. And information is easily lost if it doesn’t save so you have to start again.

Antwort von Connect Childcare

vor 3 Jahren

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review Susan. I'm really pleased to hear your parents love the app and it's helping to put their minds at ease. You're not able to look at historic registers on iConnect, but you can see these from the main Connect Childcare software. If you would like us to show you where to find these our support team will be glad to help. You can call them on 01282 507 945. This web page should help you with any queries you get from parents as it lists the answers to our most frequently asked questions: www.connectchildcare.com/information-for-parentzone-users/ Thank you again for your review. We've always working on improvements and updates and really appreciate you sharing your perspective.

We could not manage without it!

5,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: The service we receive is second to none - they follow up on every cal to ensure that any issues have been dealt with we have reduced our staffing costs due to their staff ratio module and are able to move staff to other settings to fill any gaps. The utilisation of staff accross 3 setting has greatly reduced the wage bill.

Vorteile:

The fact that I can work from anywhere and manage all three nursery's from any where in the country. It is once you have had the training easy to use, does all our staff ratios, grant allocation and invoicing. The parentzone zone and I connect is easy for the practitioner to use, with parent partnership and two way communication playing a major part in our day to day activities. The management reports and widgits provide clear concise information. We have looked at other systems and nothing comes close.

Nachteile:

The price! - it is not the cheapest, but you get what you pay for. The software team are there to answer and question you might have and can log in and sort it for you if your struggling. There is always going to be cheaper options but its like buying a cheap car and a Rolls oyce the money you save in time far out ways the cost

What I like about Connect

5,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: Using Connect has helped us to reduce our debt as it gives you much more control and the information is straight at hand. It has improved communication with parents/customers and as the system is easy to use for observations and assessments, it means that my staff have more time to spend with the children rather than doing paperwork.
The support is fantastic as any issues are addressed immediately. Also customers pay via an app so makes it easier for customers to pay.
All staff training, contracts and information is in one place.

Vorteile:

That I could manage staff, parents, billing, etc all from one computer

Nachteile:

Inputting all the information initially was time consuming . Also advice when setting up the system would have been appreciated as some things are difficult to change once the system has been set up.

Antwort von Connect Childcare

vor 3 Jahren

Thanks for your amazing review Angela. We'll take your comments about set up on board as we're always working to improve our services. I am so happy to hear that your staff and parents still love the system.

Kommentare: We have had a really good experience with connect. Any issues are resolved quickly. Business productivity is so much better.

Vorteile:

The system made life at nursery a lot easier for us. The fee side of things is brilliant and we have so much more time on our hands.

Nachteile:

We didnt like the fact that we couldn’t log children’s absence reasons on the tablet but after putting this forward to the team this came as part of the last update so happy days.

Antwort von Connect Childcare

Thanks Lou for such a lovely review. I'm glad we were able to update the system to better suit your needs at Kinder Haven, we'd love to hear about anymore improvements that you and your team would benefit from.

Kommentare: Good, many times we have had support, made changes to the software to make it fit our business

Vorteile:

Parent links, shared learning. Instant messaging. Data all in one place.

Nachteile:

Back ground workings to connect some simple actions are complicated to solve and have many steps. Invoicing and payments don’t always get deducted from bill amount.

Connect childcare

Kommentare: Invoicing and debt management. Working in partnership with head office for enquiries.

Vorteile:

Easy to use for invoicing and billing. Grants are easy to use and helpful to break down how funding has been applied to each childs account.

Nachteile:

The icon of what you are selecting covers the actual icon you want can get annoying and difficult to see all icons clearly. Would like for the population figures to be quicker to calculate, would be great to move between rooms /age groups for a date range rather than reloading each age group to forecast a booking for a childs duration of care.

Antwort von Connect Childcare

vor 3 Jahren

Hi Leanne Thanks for your review. I've sent your comments over to our product team so they can review them and see if we're able to make changes based on your suggestions. Its really great to hear that you're benefiting from the grants, invoicing and debt management.

Superb investment

5,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: It has made our system easier to manage, less chance of mistakes being made and better used by staff to reduce time spent on tablets and increase interaction time with children

Vorteile:

It was easy to use, variety of reports and options. The service provided allowed adaptability and consultants endeavour to make the system work for your needs.

Nachteile:

It does contradict the above but some elements cannot be moulded to suit or needs so we have had to adapt our methods to match the system (but nothing that was a major issue for us) This was minimal in comparison to the impact it had.

Excellent Nursery Managemetn Software

5,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: A fantastic bit of software which I wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

Vorteile:

The invoicing feature saves time allowing 200+ people to be invoiced in minutes before we used to issue paper invoices which would have to be printed, given out etc.

Nachteile:

All the data entry which has to be done at the start, however, with everything on a paper-based system before I appreciate Connect Childcare isn't responsible for this!

Antwort von Connect Childcare

vor 3 Jahren

Thanks for your review Tom. It's great to hear our systems making such a difference to your processes. We completely understand that the data entry process can take some time, but hopefully you've gained that time back (and more) once everything is in the system. Thank you again for your recommendation.

Fantastic

The convenience of the service and how fast staff can upload observations, meals etc. to ease the minds of parents.

Kommentare: I think that the page needs to be changed, as Connect now does most of the points that you are basing the review on, such as parent portal, staff management and also observations, all integrated into one database.
