Procare Software


 

Procare is a child care software solution that allows users to manage educational facilities and child care centers. The product offers multiple modules that can keep track of family data and accounting, meals, payroll, employee data, activities, payroll, expenses and ledgers and attendance.

Users can buy modules individually, or they can purchase the entire package.

Procare’s family data is the core module of its solution, designed to eliminate the need for paperwork and physical planners. It helps users track student information, including registration details, emergency contact details, schedules, enrollment history, key milestones and immunization history.

Procare can also be accessed through the web with the help of the secure Procare Cloud, where data is automatically updated each night. This gives users the benefit of mobility, security, free updates and an online parent portal.

I like the product & support but I hate the way the reports are being set. It is obviously set for an owner and his wife!!! You can NOT generate a simple receivables report with this software and there is NO way to generate a day or week report for payments received in a list format as a matter of fact you cannot get a list report in the entire reports menu except an attendance report that shows total hours attended that is it there is no other list report so in most cases it leaves owners clueless on how much money center collected for any period of time. I talked to technical support for an hour before I was told that there is no such report!!!????
I have been with Procare Software for years but unfortunately I see my self parting away in the near future.

YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO GENERATE RECEIVABLES REPORTS WITH THIS SOFTWARE

Recommendations

This is a complex software that take education to customize to your needs & if you are not the one taking a payment good luck finding a simple receivables report in this software.

Streamlining my office data reconciliation.

Pros

This software is so intuitive. It has Everything I need to run my business and be able to spend more time in the classroom instead of on my PC. I love the fact the software is set up to purchase only what you need. There is so much to learn however between the amazing youtube channel and customer service you are never without support as you learn to navigate this software and customize it for your specific needs. One of the customer rep was my initial point of contact answering tons of questions as I decided if the Procare software system was right for my in home group child care needs. It was had everything I was looking for and my clients love the system too, no more clipboards full of sign-in sheets falling all over the floor and needing to be stored for years taking up space. Now i'm growing into a new center and was ready to streamline my tuition processing I looked at what I spend now and it appears I will be actually saving by processing via Tuition Express! I have been working with another customer rep and once again all of my question and concerns were addressed, she supported me through the entire application process. I could not be happier knowing that my data is safe and secure with ProCare.

User friendly support. I don't have to be a computer genius to get the program to work correctly.

Pros

It's user friendly and your support is amazing. Their knowledge of the system helped me to restore my information from an old computer to a new computer. Everything's there just as it was.

Cons

The state mandates I have this program if I want to be a STAR provider. I've never been asked for a report by the state. As a small home child care this can be frustrating if it's mandated, but never called upon.

This software will shorter our work time for payroll and food program. It's very user friendly. Just knowing I have support from pro care means a lot. Every time I have called the person is always so helpful and I get all my questions answer and I'm not stressed after our conversation. This means a lot to end the call knowing you can do the task you need to do. I m very satisfied with pro care at this time.

Pros

Very user feiendly. It will help with payroll time cards food program and check in for children so much faster. We are using the finger print option to sign children in and out.

Cons

Entering employees time is a little time consuming. We had to purchase another computer for signing in children ., buy a web cam and fingerprint monitor

Procare took my life into this century. Previously we did our ledger postings by hand which made my life very cumbersome. Tuition Express upped that by 100%.

Pros

I love the convenience of Procare and the time it saves me from posting so much information manually as we did in the past.

Billing , time keeping,report printing etc....

Pros

The functionality and the ease of use. I also love the fact we have a tech at our fingertips that can guide us through any problem we may encounter. And they teach me to do the task as well. Eliminating the need to call back for the same issues.

Cons

Not knowing how to use it. There are so many awesome features and No one trained our staff at the get go. so there is a lot of un tapped potential in this program that i do not know how to use.

Pros

It's very convenient. The reports are so helpful. I can print any type of report I need. I use this program as a time clock for my staff, signing in and out for parents and children, keeping up with payments, yearly statements...the list goes on and on.

Cons

If I have a technical issue first thing in the morning, I have to wait 3-4 hours to reach someone since I'm on the east coast. That can be a huge nightmare since we almost completely rely on ProCare to help manage daily operations.

I got the benefit of time cards for all the employees, check in stations for Employees and Teachers, all the reports that I get from these areas. The Tuition Express is the best and the newest addition but has been an happy addition.

Pros

That I have tec support and Benji to explain it to me. The tuition express has been a wonderful time saving item that I am glade we got turned on to. I also like the check in and timecard options but the are 2nd best compared to the tuition express.

Cons

I have a hard time with the amount of options that there are and which one to choose. Then trying to find it after I get sold on that particular report.

Makes my work easier and faster!

Pros

There are several things that I love about this program. 1st is the attendance tracking to see total hours of care for each child and 2nd how I can see how many children are in attendance at any given time. 3rd is the tracking for immunizations is so helpful to make sure my children are up to date. 4th is keeping up with tuition fees and how easy it is to see who owes what.

Cons

Occasionally when I am adding a family it won't let them sign in and I have to redo it. Also in the weekly report section I don't like that if someone is out they are not shown on report at all. I would rather see there name and 0 hours than not even show them on the report.

Pros

Endless possibilities. Great support team. Very helpful and very friendly. They do not take long to get back to you to help.

Cons

Because it can do so many things it is hard to remember all the avenues to take to complete tasks you do not use on a regular basis. The help support will help you in matters.

I would say after the initial data input that it has saved our staff and parents time and simplified data management.

Pros

I like all of the built in functionality and features. They have put a lot of time into thinking about what to include in the software. It is a reliable software.

Cons

I feel procare should offer free integration with other systems. It would also be nice if their system understood standard proximity cards.

I do not like the mounting hardware for the touchscreens. The touchscreen power adapter should be built in to the touch screen and there should be a lot more aesthetically appealing way to mount it.

There is not a capability to add a business to associate with a person. For instance we associate doctor offices, dentist offices, and hospitals with students and employees and not specific doctors. It would be nice to be able to put a business in there instead of filling out a person with the business information.

It would be nice if they got rid of the user licenses.
