Management Software

This may have been asked before but... does anyone use a management software to run the registers, to produce invoices etc?

 

I have been sent the 'EY Essential' and after having a brief look through it 1. it looks scary lol and 2. would I really use it?

 

I would love some feedback if others use any software and if they couldnt live without it etc.

 

Thank you x

We have EY Essentials and after a year, feel that something much simpler would be better. We only use the invoice bit and even that is far too complicated and inflexible.

I would love someone to come up with something much simpler, hint to all you clever computer people put there!

I too tried EY Esssentials and gave up after a term, now use Parenta for everything - invoices, registers, holidays, staff hours, NEF funding etc. They are quite expensive to set up but it is designed for my setting and is able to change as I do, I pay a monthly fee but for that I get support 24/7 so I can help whenever ICT bogs me down.

I am looking to open a nursery in October so am looking for a software package. I have the Parenta lady coming tomorrow, but agree it looks expensive, but not sure what alternatives would be better (there seem to be so many!). Any recommendations please. X

Hi,

 

We use a system called kindersoft. This stores all childs details, registers,and generates invoices. Registers are broken down into room/age groups over a daily and/or weekly period allowing you to do the rota effectively

I've had a parenta lady come and see me today, and to be honest it looks great. The initial start up cost seems a lot but when I factor in the hours it will save me, it is worth it as I would have to get someone in to cover my room while i do admin.

I use Nursery Net, i does invoicing, EYE grant calculations, forecasting, registers, all HR such quals, sickness, holidays and lots more! I cannot remember initial set up cost but it wasnt extortionate, and we pay approx £35 a month.

 

It works really well for me and the support is great.

We use preschooler software - it's cheap and does the registers, invoicing, collection lists for the the children we collect from the schools, future fee forcaster, individual rooms etc.

First Steps here - set up was a bit expensive and we pay £54 a month but thats on an external server so if our PC blows up ( which a previous one did and we lost everything!) or gets stolen we don't lose any data and can just plug in and go with a new one ! It's easy to use and the support is fantastic . :1b
