This week Kidsoft, a leader in childcare technology solutions, and ChildcareCRM, the first name in CRM solutions for the childcare industry, announced an integration of their two systems to streamline communication and engagement between parents and centres.
Together, the two companies intend to create a more efficient childcare ecosystem, streamlining the experience of communication from new lead enquiry to enrolled child. The integrated platform is available to childcare centres and their families effective immediately.
The collaboration leverages ChildcareCRM’s trusted platform to engage those parents and build relationships from initial enquiry through to enrolment, as well as the power of Kidsoft’s cloud-based CCS Childcare Management solution. The software offers a range of integrated tools including parent solutions, secure payment gateway, enrolment tools, attendance tracking and booking management.
“Effective communication is so important right now, whether that is with a prospective family or one currently enrolled at a centre,” said Matt Amoia, ChildcareCRM CEO. “We are excited to join with Kidsoft in the effort to streamline the technology a centre uses to engage and communicate with families, while also creating efficiency in their day-to-day operations on the backend.”
Kidsoft CEO, Di Girvin said, “In the ever-changing landscape of today’s childcare industry partnerships such as the one between ChildcareCRM and Kidsoft are crucial to success. It’s imperative that to build longevity and to create best of breed childcare centres that put children first, a collaborative approach with experts in this space is necessary. It not only allows childcare centres to focus on what they do best but also provides peace of mind to both educators and families. The seamless integration will not only improve the parent experience but also the educators, in the process saving our customers time to focus on other important tasks”
