EZCare Software


 

EZCare is a cloud-based childcare management solution that includes functionality for enrollment, billing, scheduling and parent engagement.

EZCare family engagement tools include EZSmiles, a mobile app that allows parents  to connect with the center throughout the day and a parent portal that lets parents make payments and update child or family information.

EZCare integrates with EZ Payment Services which offers payment options such as online, automatic, mobile and in-person. Parents can chose to pay tuition using credit cards, debit cards or e-checks.

When processing payments through EZ Payment Services, parent and payment information flows directly into in the EZCare system.

EZCare is programs such as childcare centers, daycare, after school programs, preschools, faith-based centers, Montessori schools and more.

EZCare offers integration with third-party software providers such as QuickBooks, OneCallNow, ChildCareCRM and Constant Contact.

Billing, Payroll time cards, very convenient when processing payroll for staff and very convenient with tuition billing in a timely manner, the payment option of Click to Pay is very beneficial.

Pros

The ability for parents to get email with invoices and click to pay, ease of sending messages in the body of the statement.

Cons

Not sure if this is a set up, but you can't see individual invoices, only ledger with transactions
The messages you write on one account, may accidentally carry over to the next.

Pros

The software is easy to learn and use. When I was introduced to it in 2015, I thought that I was going to have difficulty learning it. But I did not.

Cons

To change a form looks complicated. I needed to add a column to a form once and when the support technician went in to make the change for me, it looked really difficult. I would like to be able to make these changes myself rather than call for technical support, but whenever I have called I have gotten the help I needed immediately.

I like the automation and flexible within the program, but each request is best helped through customer service. This takes time (making the call, getting a call back), but they are always knowledgeable.

Cons

1. can't cut & paste - to or from the program to/from another
2. does not apply class when entering data into quickbooks

I cannot recommend EZ-Care enough! It is the easiest software program I have used to manage our childcare sites. We have eight childcare locations that I (the accounting specialist) manage. The ability to connect all of our programs is wonderful! This software is user friendly and allows us to focus on what is really important, the kids in our care!

One of my favorite things about this program is the ability to customize it however you need to. You can add fields that are important to you. Other programs I have used required the company to create the fields and they charge a fee per field added. EZ-Care allows unlimited fields and you have the ability to create them yourself.

EZ-Care also allows you to create your own reports which is extremely helpful! You can create them to include any of the fields you have created. We use these for rosters, balance dues, staff training, medical, health care plans, assessments, extra-curricular classes, etc.

EZ-Care has also made billing extremely simple! Majority of our families are on our EFT draft (process all payments with the few clicks of your mouse) but we also have Insta-Charge (ability to run payments instantly in the system) and Click to Pay (online bill pay). These functions have dropped our time of manually inputting cash payments and checks down to 1%!

With a program this wonderful, we haven't needed support all that often, but when we do, they are AMAZING! They have the friendliest, most helpful customer service I have ever interacted with. Not only do they help with whatever issue we are having, they also often offer ideas or tips on how to do something easier or better.

I highly recommend this software to everybody! After working with it for eleven years, I haven't found anything it couldn't do that I needed!

Pros

user friendly, billing, reports, time saver

Cons

Since we are not a daycare we customized EZ-Care to use in a unique way that helps us maintain information on the children we serve and the progress they have made along with a place for parents to comment on their service. We create reports specific to our needs for reporting to other agencies and use within our company. We do not use EZ-Care for payment collections or the same way most daycares use it. This was so much easier than creating our own database in Access or another database program. We were extremely pleased with the way we could customize it for our needs and the way the programmers worked with us to set this up.

Pros

You can customize the software for your specific needs.

Cons

Sometimes reports can be a little difficult to get the exact results you need.

EZ Care has been a huge lifesaver for our After School program! From office work and information to parent communication, it really has helped us stream line all our information in one place and make it super easy to get that information to our parents as well. This is the first program we have found that truly caters to what is useful to us in an after school/daycare setting.

The best feature that EZCARE has is the support team. Whenever I email them with an issue, they respond to me quickly and are able to assist me with resolving the issue so that I can return to work. I really appreciate not having to wait days to get help. Help is there the same day.

Wish there was a save option and better reports...but otherwise this is a great system. Report building is not as easy as it could be. And I notice that I make changes to people time in and out under the actual tab, only to find that the next day it has gone back to the original input that was there and my changes are gone. I wish there was a save button...so when we make changes we know for sure that the changes will stay put.

As a long time EZ-Care user, I cannot say enough good things about this software! The name says it all! It is so easy to use and the upcoming changes are going to make it even easier! Making the administrative side so much simpler, it allows us to focus on what is really important...the kids! Their customer service is excellent! Any questions I have or issues I have experienced are quickly handled and I am usually given tips and advice on easier ways to do things! I cannot imagine using any other company!

Our center uses EZ Care for both our billing and our time clock. Both are fairly easy to navigate. The only "complaint" I would have is that, if an employee forgets to clock in, we can't fix it until they clock out. The software won't let us do anything. If there was a way to get this fixed, it would be great!

We had used another system for several years, but it went out of business. We were worried about having to start all over with a new one, but found out right away that it was a good change and an easy learning curve! And we love the updates. They always make it even better!
