Procare Software Review

2019-07-19

Procare software has provided the management resources for better time management in accounting and administrative tasks.

Pros

With the recent additions of KidReports, tracking and communication has improved.

Cons

The Procare dashboard is not as user-friendly as it could be for certain components and could use a visual graphic update to make the dashboard more modern.

Make your life easier

2019-06-28

ProCare has all the functions and reports I need to run my early learning center efficiently.

Pros

The check in and check out functions for parents as well as the employee time card make it easier to track children and staff hours.

Cons

The software is great. The hold time to get to technical support is often lengthy, but once you get them they are very helpful with all issues.

Customer Service is excellent

Pros

Easy to learn and use, excellent way to keep track of billing, enrollment, attendance, teacher clock in/out.

Cons

Wasn't accurate enough, and often broke down, so we had to drop it. The management system could use some minor updates, but overall it is excellent.

Lack of response to needs

2019-08-15

I have been a Procare client since the days of Turbo whatever that was, migrated through all the upgrades with you guys, but now I am considering other management software options

Pros

Stable platform, extensive data collection

Cons

Depth of menus, takes too long to drill down through menus to find what is needed; Lack of response to some basic and simple report requests, like a 7 day aging report for agency accounts; rigidity of options under corporate accounts (inability to treat them as separate entiries for data storage, etc.)
