    Pros
    Great for the staff on site; improving functionality behind the scenes; fantastic customer service.
    I am very happy with its functionality. It's easy to use, and helps to have peace of mind knowing the exact time when my son was picked from school and brought to the childcare club.
    Ease of use, fantastic follow up service with reps always so eager to help via email or the demo link.
    Cons
    There is no option for the parents to cancel sessions. It would be really useful to be able to receive cancellations via cheqdin as we are using multiple platforms which can lead to errors.
    You can't put children back on the wiaitng list once they have enrolled - whether this be by accident or we actually had a child start and then left as wasn't ready but return at a later date.
    Parents find the new update more difficult to use and book.

    AMAZING SOFTWARE

    Reviewed 3 years ago

    I opened my after school club about 8 months ago. I have struggled to find a software that meets my demands financially but also easy to use. When I found Cheqdin I was extremely pleased with all the features specifically with the invoices service. It helps me optimise my time daily and the helpful customer service is always available to help. I highly recommend this software!

    Pros

    This software has all the features needed to help me optimise my after school club and keep my updates in check. Its extremely easy to use, no jargon, no hidden fees, all features are explained throughout.

    Cons

    I have yet to find any cons in this software..

    Great value for money and a lots of useful features

    Reviewed 3 years ago

    Administration tasks are more efficient and manageable. Access to information and important documentation is all in one place.

    Pros

    This software does a lot for the money and once set up does save time and paper. I am still occassionally finding features I didn't realise were there or that have been added as the team continue to improve the product. The customer support has always been helpful and readily available and they are always keen to listen and introduce new features to help make it better. The parent Apps have helped us engage more with parents and provides alternative communication tools to do that. The support team are really friendly and helpful and keen to get things right for our needs.

    Cons

    It does take a bit of time to get everything set up properly and thought needs to go into how you do this in the right way for your setting (but so much time is saved once it is done and the price is still way better than competitors.) It doesn't necessarily have all the features of some other Nursery Management software but but is much more affordable for a smaller setting. Some features have not been so useful to us so we have not maximised their use.

    Vendor response

    Pros

    Good for daily signing in / out for staff and children. Parents being able to communicate directly with staff in their childs room.

    Cons

    It is a bit slow. would be helpful if room moves were automatic (still with an edit option though). Being able to attach more than 1 document to an email would be useful Staff in playrooms being able to send "bulk" messages would be good.

    Brilliant Software

    Reviewed 3 months ago

    Cheqdin has been life changing for our service. It's been so beneficial to us & I wouldn't know what to do now without the service. What i love most that Cheqdin has above most other services like this is the apps and having everything at the click of one button.

    Pros

    The use of this software has more than halved my admin time and supported the development of our service.

    Cons

    I do wish that their could be a few more features added to the apps, if parents drop off in a morning and would like an afterschool session it would be great if staff could book it in via the app.

    Vendor response

    Great product

    Reviewed 2 years ago

    Really positive, good product and the staff are really helpful

    Pros

    We were looking for a product to take our fees inline and streamline them in the nursery. Right from the start Cheqdin were great with us. We have our own contact [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] who is very patient with us and always on the end of the phone for us. She worked with our admin and now our admin is on maternity. [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] is available to me when I have queries as I don’t use the system as much as our admin does. We wanted a company based in Scotland who understood ELC 1140 hours and the registrations we work under.

    Cons

    Nothing, our broadband at the nursery is poor, so sometimes the package is slow but when I work from home there are no issues and is a great system to work with.

    Vendor response

    Thanks for sharing your experience with us and the community. Our team is always ready and available to help when you need us. Thank you for being a part of the Cheqdin family!
