Best move ever!

5,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: We are just starting to realise many benefits - which include time saving features. We have also been able to move a lot of our paper based practices to OWNA, which works in well with our sustainability practices. I love that the support team are always on hand, and work hard to resolve any issues - including our user-knowledge, or lack thereof!

Vorteile:

Moving over to OWNA has been incredible. We are still not using all the features, but definitely moving towards this. OWNA has and will enable us to move all our processes into the same software, rather than using different platforms for different functions. It literally has just about all we need and more. The platform is simple, clean, and functional. The team at OWNA are so responsive to needs and suggestions, and seem to work around the clock to ensure that their program does everything we need (and want) it to do.

Nachteile:

There are definite issues with the accounts side of the software, and flaws that need to be ironed out.

Antwort von OWNA

Thanks for the feedback Trisha! Happy to hear you're enjoying the software. As always, feel free to send your feedback to the support team re: accounts and see how we can iron this out. Thanks again - Jack

The Hills Little Learners Review

4,0 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: Amazing.

Vorteile:

In my many years in the ECEC Industry and using a many different apps for the indurty, OWNA has by far exceeded my expectations as it offers so much. Not just fr the educators documenting but also for Admin and enrolments. Having everything on one app makes it so much easier to stay on top of things and also for families which can see everything from their child's day to our QIP, centre poilcies etc. It has been a very welcomed change to our service and the eudcators and myself really love using this daily

Nachteile:

It can be glitchy at times and we may have to close the app, re open for it to work. Sometimes the educators lose their work if the app glitches if they are in the middle of writing an observation and it stops working, it doesnt automatically save to draft.

CCS, Billing, Direct Debit

3,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: Great tool for parents interaction. Horror tool for managing billing, charging parents and direct debit is extremely cumbersome, tedious taking my time away from working on my business and spending more time in my business. I do not have confidence with OWNA in using it do discuss billing issues with our parents.

Vorteile:

Parents interaction, parents communication

Nachteile:

Billing, Direct Debit, processes, lack of automation, lack of formal parent statement day by day

Antwort von OWNA

Sorry to hear about your experience Ted. Have you tried coming to our training sessions on CCS, billing, direct debit etc.? There's a ton of good info in there that I think would help you and your parents with getting a better experience of the software. - Jack

Smooth transition, will never go back

5,0 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: Extremely Positive! OWNA support have been kind, accessible and super helpful! OWNA aligned with our personal sustainability goals (paperless) and has every feature we need. Highly Recommend!

Vorteile:

OWNA is easy to navigate and is a one-stop shop! It honestly has it all! From planning and programming, linking learning stories and observations, sharing information amongst management and staff, and so much more. Our families love the 'cheat sheet', finding it easy to navigate with this assistance, and now engage with our content/documentation so much more than ever before. Everything is ONLINE! Going paperless is easy with OWNA.

Nachteile:

The only hiccup - transferring families from our old software left emergency contacts behind and only took primary caregivers. it took a lot of work to get those contacts all included in each child's profiles. Several years on, this isn't a problem as new families enter the details right into the system.

IF YOUR NOT USING OWNA YOUR MISSING OUT

4,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: heaps less admin time as normal daily tasks are simplified and completed in less than half the time with OWNA software compared to old school applications. enhanced programming capabilities, and Families LOVE the transparency of OWNA!

Vorteile:

This product is extremely user friendly and the software integration when we first swapped over was so simple the customer service team handled majority of it. our centre loves the transparency of the app, families love it, we are able to provide enhanced programming cycle compared to all other apps on the market.

Nachteile:

i would like to see some additional report features added. for example a 1.8% tool, and customisable booking sheets. however in saying this OWNA has shown a strong commitment to continuous improvement and every time we take a new idea to them they run with it and within weeks/months we see it implemented in the app. i hate Fat Zebra they are hard to work with compared to other direct debit companies.

Thanks Lauren - you're right we are passionate about helping operators, and we're stoked to hear your enjoying the experience. As I'm sure you know, we'll take this feedback on board. In fact, the 1.8 tool was built over the weekend an should be ready to use now, so thanks for bringing that up! - Jack

why we use OWNA

5,0 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: Overall we have had a very good experience with OWNA and have recommended it to lots of people. Thank you for the wonderful service that you supply.

Vorteile:

changing to OWNA has completely change the way we do paperwork at our centres. It has saved so much time in administration costs. Parents, Staff and Admin all love OWNA and how easy it is to use, the information they are able to produce and the open lines of communication between everyone. OWNA Support have always been excellent and we have never had to wait very long for an answer/resolution to our problems.

Nachteile:

Transition from other programs can take a little bit for staff/parents to get their heads around. But once they get to know the program and all the features they begin to really enjoy it. The QIP part of the program could be easier to use. It is a bit frustrating in its current format.

THANK YOU for your great software

Kommentare: Your team are the best and I especially love the fact that the team always call back if they don’t have the answers to my myriad of questions.

I have felt really supported and am so happy that I have made the switch.

Vorteile:

Just want to give you a huge THANK YOU for your great software, but more importantly for the awesome help and support that your team have been providing over the past few months whilst our service has transitioned over from another software.

Nachteile:

I would like there to be an easy-print one page A4 daily rolls for admin purposes.

The best move we made!

5,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: Everyone in our team is able to use it as it is so user friendly and not complicated even for our non techy staff.

Vorteile:

We loved how everything we use was on one platform and how inexpensive it was. I also appreciated how amazing the customer support team is and nothing is every to much for them. We have also had so much more parent communication about the children's learning

Nachteile:

I find the billing side includes a lot of steps and the statements are difficult to read.

Antwort von OWNA

Thanks Brannan! Really happy to hear about your increase in parent engagement, and always good to see compliments about the team. Appreciate the billing side can be a somewhat rigorous process. It's something we're looking to streamline as we refine the software this year. Any ongoing issues or suggestions, don't hesitate to contact the support team. Thanks again! - Jack

Must have system

5,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: Our whole team have easily transitioned to OWNA and we find new features to use and make our lives easier every day. I have been extremely happy with the service provided and have recommended to many people.

Vorteile:

OWNA has combined multiple other software into the one space, streamlining many daily function. It is easy to use, the support provided is great (often getting replies even if I email them late at night or over the weekends when I encounter the issues). It has almost everything required to efficiently and effectively run our centre at the touch of a button and are constantly updating with new features that just make daily operations easier. Having OWNA has also assisted us to remain compliant, as we have everything clearly documented, easily accessible and notified when something is expiring.

Nachteile:

The only issue we have had is parents understanding the new invoicing system as there has been confusion between the balance screen and the invoicing however this is a feature that is currently being worked on to simplify in the coming months :)

Industry Leader. Innovative and Always Improving.

4,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: We were one of the first during the pilot and have been a dedicated customer ever since.
Relationship with Owna goes up to management level.
Feedback and response to issues or improvement requests are dealt with on a personal level.
Always adding community requested feature or even custom features for our specific needs.

Vorteile:

Real-time updates on attendance and ratios. Privacy and security-aware. Meets regulations and tight policies in the industry. Intuitive and easy to use interface. Platform independent and customised apps for Android/Apple devices.

Nachteile:

The product is great but there are still areas/processes that we believe can be integrated to reduce paperwork and improve efficiencies in our industry. We're sure these will come in time but would be good to have now.

Thanks Sid! Appreciate your honest feedback. Feel free to message the support team with your suggestions re: integrations and we'll take a look at implementing them. Glad to hear you're still enjoying the app. Cheers! - Jack

All in One, perfect for Child Care

5,0 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: I have implemented this software for 3 services now, and so far except for teething issues, it has been great. Once fully set up it is the easiest software I have used. There are many more things that could improve its functionality, and the team are always making changes, activating new features, and supporting services all across Australia. I always feel good when I call OWNA for help.

Vorteile:

It is really easy to add to an attendance. Entering family transactions are seemless (except when you make a mistake!) and reports are great too.

Nachteile:

The fact that reports do not print out in colour like the screen. Needs a message pop up system when parents sign in or out as they often don't use notifications. There needs to be a better layout for the emergency drills and the fact that running balances cannot be seen on the parent app is a negative.

Kommentare: Great way to provide families with information and to communicate. Great way to go sustainable by getting rid of paper based work.

Vorteile:

Ease for families to access and provide information.

Nachteile:

Feature requests are not always added when requested.

Antwort von OWNA

vor 3 Jahren

Thanks Teighan - always happy to hear your feedback. With regards to feature requests, we try to take in as many as possible, but sometimes by adding features that some centres like, it affects other centres that want the opposite. Rest assured that we take every feature request with a great amount of importance, but we have to weigh up the pros and cons for all centres before we make a decision. Thanks again for your feedback and I hope you continue to enjoy using the app - Jack

Happy Customer

5,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: My experience has been very positive. I have used several digital platforms and this is by far the best platform for programming i have used so far.

Vorteile:

I love that i can put everything in the one place and have everything stored digitally. The ease of use for staff to access programming, follow up and other ideas. Capturing parent comments and having everything in real time to share with parents makes it a wonderful tool. The ease of use for parents has made my life easier. Updating policies for feedback and sending out correspondence is now just a click of a button.

Nachteile:

Some changes are not communicated to us and this causes an issue when staff go to program, but we sort it out in the end. it may just be as simple as a button to press or a feature changed to admin only.

Antwort von OWNA

Thanks Denise! Hearing feedback like this is why we got into the child care software space in the first place. We're currently working out a new way of communicating feature changes, such as tutorials & webinars, so look out for these in the near future. - Jack

Owna onboarding experience

5,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: So far it has been more than I expected, the support has been amazing

Vorteile:

The software seems complicated at first but once you complete the videos and see how much you can complete on the program it is amazing. Love that all checklist's, Incident reports, family communication can be completed in the software. I thought invoices would be hard, but i actually think it will be easier than a running balance as parents can view an invoice and see exactly what they have been charged for.

Nachteile:

Few things on the app have turn off notifications that are not on the web version. Would also like to see a tag button on the app for logs and incident reports. Our staff leave things in draft form for supervisors to view. I understand that you can attach and email address for notifications but then they are notified on everything. Would love to have a way I could attach and email address for supervisors to be notified of maintenance or incident reports but not have to receive emails that relate to the accounts side.

Vorteile:

The OWNA Team have made our transition and experience with the software extremely smooth and positive. Since making the decision to transition to owna, we have not looked back, going on almost 3 years now. The Team have excellent customer service, attending to our requests and needs straight away.

Panda Review on OWNA

5,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: Very happy and have recommended you to many of other childcares.

Vorteile:

1- We liked the super fast and helpful support team 2- We liked the flow of the system and the way different aspects are organised 3- User-friendly and not complicated to learn

Nachteile:

1- Parents faced errors in enrolment form and child care subsidy calculator, we feel they should have been tested more thoroughly by your tech team before rolling those features out 2- We signed up for the Premium Plus + but were disappointed that you are unable to commit to the customisation of app etc and had to downgrade us to Premium due to being "busy". Again, I would suggest that you remove this product from your website if you are unable to commit to the features listed on it.

Antwort von OWNA

vor 3 Jahren

Thanks Rajai! Happy to hear how much you're enjoying the software & thanks for recommending us. The enrolments & CCS calculator should be fully functional now for some time, but if you're still having issues, as always feel free to get in touch with our support team. We've been going through a big period of growth recently and unfortunately had to slow down the roll out of the premium plus package. We should be able to get back to full capacity soon, so watch this space! Thanks again - Jack
