Bring a new level of productivity to your center
I have been using Procare for over 11 years. The program itself is easy to learn and grow with. I have been 100% satisfied.
We currently use almost all of the modules available with the exception of the Employee Payroll. This includes the online backup (Procare cloud) which makes me feel confident that all of my important data will be backed up daily, even if I were to have my computer crash.
Tuition Express is my favorite module because it saves me sooo much time. All of our parents pay tuition through this – I no longer have to take time out of my day to do a daily deposit and run to the bank. In a couple of clicks of the mouse, all the payments are collected.
