EZCare Feature Reviews

25 reviewers had the following to say about EZCare's features:

Warren F.

Outstanding Child-care Software!

2013-05-31

I highly recommend EZ-Care2 to any child care program looking for management software.

Pros

We've used it for over ten years for activity at ten locations serving thousands of children - for attendance, invoicing families with various scholarship rates, demographics, registrations, and report/data generation for various funding reports.

Cons

Takes some time to learn to use, but given the features and adaptability quite worth the time. (It would be difficult, if not impossible, to have a product of this calliber be a simple quick study.)

Saves so much time

2013-06-04

We have recommended this program to other schools in our area and have share how it can save time with reporting and billing.

Pros

With so many different reports to choose from it makes collecting and reporting information for students and staff much quicker and easier.

Cons

There is a learning curve for non tech

I've recommended and helped install at other day cares. This software is unique to day cares and provides all levels of support.

Pros

It has helped tremendously in financial management of our locations.

Cons

If any con it would be the designing of reports, but that could be due to my lack of time to attend a workshop or training session.

The best child care software I've used

2021-09-03

The standard reports I can get are great and I can create my own reports.

Pros

I like being able to put in multiple dates with multiple tuition plans rather than only being able to set up one plan at a time. I like having all the child's information under the child, not some under billing and some under personal information and some under recurring plans. And the customer service is great. They're quick to help and don't make you feel like you should have known.

Cons

I really like EZCare. I'm trying to think of something that I don't like but nothing comes to mind.

I love ezcare and have been a client since the late eighties.

2009-06-12

This is the only center management software that I have ever used, or would ever recommend--I believe softerware has has been doing this longer than anyone and their experience shows in a superior product, and excellent customer service.

Pros

The report wizard makes it simple to customize reports, and the cabinet/drawer system allows for so much flexibility in data management.

Cons

I was a little surprised at how much data entry was necessary even with the personalized data backup!

Customer support is awesome!

2016-12-06

I have only had one negative experience with customer service in the 8 years I have been using EzCare. It turned out she was just having a bad day! There is one person in particular named Joy that truly fits her name! She finds great joy in helping me when I get her for my customer service rep and I can't thank her enough for her awesome personality and expertise.

Pros

The customer service!

Cons

I can't teach myself how to build a report because I don't do well with online learning.

Long Time User

2021-03-03

Price-wise they were better than many and likely still are. New companies are coming out more and more...for many years the competition was slim pickings. I'm glad we've stayed with them through their changes and am interested in how being bought by Procare affects the quality...hopefully for the better.

Pros

The website has a good user interface, the design is mostly intuitive and I like how often they are adding to the software/improving its quality.

Cons

I wish their custom reports were better...but their reports section is decent and the EZViewer gives an option to generate a type of report via pdf or excel that you can manipulate further once exported.

Great support, very responsive company

2020-12-11

The support team is wonderful, helping to figure out best ways to match what I need with what is available, and encouraging engagement in the community platform for design and use updates, and acting upon those user suggestions.

Pros

It has also streamlined our invoicing and payment process, saving time which saves dollars. The design teams have been very responsive to figuring out ways to best serve clients with regard to tracking attendance and helping to streamline that process while supporting us in capturing the data we need for reporting based upon state regulations.

Cons

When it times out on me while I am doing entry causing me to have to log back in.

EZCare was a very easy software to train on and now is very easy to use.

2018-02-06

This software allows me to easily keep track of and manage the income of our school.

Pros

I love that I can post monthly tuition to all active families, print aging reports, send out year to date tuition statements, etc.

Cons

I do not like that I can not easily remove families once they have been created, or that the main drop down list includes all families ever added to the system. I would like to see only those who are active.

EZCare2 is EZ! :)

2012-11-29

It is easy to use the basic report and report Wizard assists you with getting a more detailed report, when needed.

Pros

Easily adaptable to individual needs (ie. specific reports, customization of screens).

Cons

If one has no experience with programming, customizing the reports in Report Designer could be frustrating and complex.

EZCare Review

2019-05-28

Pros

I also loved all the different reports that could be made using all the different information entered.

Cons

The only downfall was getting used to making reports. The first few times were challenging to figure out alignment, correct info needed, and other things.

Ez-Care helped us tremendously

2017-01-09

Since we are not a daycare we customized EZ-Care to use in a unique way that helps us maintain information on the children we serve and the progress they have made along with a place for parents to comment on their service.

Pros

You can customize the software for your specific needs.

Cons

Sometimes reports can be a little difficult to get the exact results you need.

Hooray for EZCare

2020-02-27

Pros

The support of EZ-Care is awesome. Their availability is quick and everyone I have dealt with has been professional, polite and very helpful. I just recently set up emailing the bills to our families. They helped me set this up and it has been wonderful. It is quick and saves so much time. They also have great tips on their WEBLINKS to allow you to read about things you might need help with. They are always updating and our Childcare Center is so glad we are working with EZCare.

Cons

The hard part was me learning a new program.
