MEDFORD, Ore. & DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Procare Software, a global leader in child care management solutions, and KidReports, a leading provider of real time reporting technology and services to child care providers, today announced the two companies have formed a strategic partnership that will offer a “one-stop” solution designed to meet the complete management and parent communication needs of child care businesses and organizations. In addition to the signature KidReports product, a new proprietary version of KidReports will be offered exclusively to Procare customers.
The world’s largest provider of child care management software, services and hardware, Procare offers desktop and cloud hosted solutions that allow for automated collection of tuition, fees and other payments, as well as modules to track student attendance, immunizations, menus and meals, and parent and emergency contact and other information. Procare serves more than 35,000 child care providers in a variety of facilities from single-unit operations to multinational enterprises. KidReports’ software as a service (SaaS) web-based reporting system allows providers to create a secure personal online profile of each child to track their activities and communicate with parents. Providers can share photos, videos and other information, and profiles can be updated hourly or daily, allowing parents to stay connected with their children throughout the day. KidReports’ software automates a number of providers’ administrative tasks, replacing paper daily reports, providing online and secure data storage, and aiding with license compliance.
“The combination of Procare’s comprehensive suite of child care software tools and services and KidReports’ real time reporting framework and infrastructure offers a truly all-in-one solution for child care organizations of all sizes,” said JoAnn Kintzel, President and CEO, Procare Software. “We believe pairing fully complementary offerings from two industry leaders provides a unique and unbeatable solution for child care centers, allowing them to operate more efficiently and effectively while meeting the needs of parents and children.”
“Parents are increasingly seeking frequent and informative communication to track their children’s learning and progress while under a provider’s care,” said Leif Ullman, CEO and Co-Founder, KidReports. “We are confident Procare and KidReports’ combined child care management software and services offering will allow providers to easily meet this need while modernizing their operations, growing enrollment, and saving time, money and resources. We look forward to a close collaboration with Procare.”
