Great Product to Integrate with Procare

Tuition Express has provided a quick and easy way for our daycare to set up and process tuition payments.

Pros

Tuition Express is a great product to use and integrate into the Procare management system.

Pros & Cons

2018-09-11

This was the first month so there were some glitches, lots of setting up accounts so it's been tedious but I am sure next month will be easier and save me time in collecting tuition.

Pros

I like that the children & families pictures can be added and that the parents can pay online & print their own reports.

Cons

Our program is a half day preschool and we don't need half of the things offered like tracking. Also, there are so many different reports available if takes me a while to figure out which will be what I want.

Tuition Express

It is such a convenience to run tuition automatically everywhere.

Pros

I also love that parents can sign-in to the system to get their payment report so we don't have to create a separate receipt for them.

Cons

It is a great, very well designed software.

Tuition Express

2018-10-18

Employee time delegated to making bank deposits has been reduced because of the reports we can generate in Procare.

Pros

I love the way the entire TE system integrates with Procare; this makes it easy to bill accounts, process payments, and do returns which are automatically added to each account ledger.

Cons

However, I understand that to have the integration I love and to be able to run the reports I need, this is necessary.

Reliable and Easy to Use

2019-08-16

The Tuition Express ledger function is how we track and process all of our tuition charges to customers.

Pros

I like that this product is very straight forward. It's easy to understand and easy for our customers to use.

Cons

I wish that the credit card fees were lower, that credit card returns took less than 3-5 business days, and that the credit card information forms were more customizable.

Easy to Use

2018-10-31

There do seem to be some kinks here and there, like one credit card kept getting billed months later even after the child had been changed to withdrawn and had no activities in the billing box.

Pros

Tuition Express is easy to use.

Cons

We did not realize that our center would be charged 3-3.5% in Merchant Fees when average is about 2%. If Tuition Express had a way of estimating that better during the sales process, we would have better accounted for the cost increase.

Response from Procare Software


Veronica - We're glad you've found Tuition Express easy to use and a time-saver. As to rates, they vary based on the type of transaction (batch processing versus point-of-sale) and the types of cards people use. We'll have one of our consultants get in touch with you to consider the best strategies for your situation. And, regarding withdrawn children, as long as the family still owes you money batch payments will continue to be made; however, you may disable processing for that account if appropriate. You may also opt to allow the parent to pay on their own through MyProcare (the parent portal).

Tuition Express for Child Care Review

2018-11-13

Fine once you get passed the learning curve.

Pros

I like that parents can make a credit/debit payment without our assistance. Allows us to focus on other tasks. I have had good experiences with both ProCare support staff & TE support staff.

Cons

I have heard the owner express disappointment in the cost vs not using the cloud version. I don't know specifics.

Amy - We're glad you're so happy with the fingerprint check-in option for parents and staff. As to the many functions available in Procare, we do strive to make it fully featured while also keeping it easy to use. It's true the printed manual does not cover every possible topic (it's meant to help you get started), but you'll find every feature meticulously covered (often with a short video clip) at ProcareSupport.com. Just click the question mark on any Procare screen to go to the appropriate online article.

It has been wonderful. I simply do not have time to use all the parts that would help me but I must find time. I could save so much money by way of not paying someone to do what the system can do.

Pros

I love the running report of what is owed.

Reoccurring dates for ACH are not available

Incredible Data & Excellent Customer Service

2018-10-18

Customer support is always willing, ready, and able. Always a joy to talk to them when I have a frustrating situation.

Pros

The ease in which it processes tuition and tracks every detail.

Cons

It is intimidating for a first time user but you can't do better as it covers every detail to help you manage your business. Customer support is amazing!

Fast and easy way to collect and track payments.

2019-07-23

This program has helped us collect weekly fees much easier, and it has cut down the late payments we were plagued with.

Pros

It provides a print-out for on-sit users and sends an email to online users. An automatic withdrawal can easily be programed for client who provide account information that is not stored onsite.

Cons

Some people are reluctant to use automatic withdrawals from their accounts.

Childcare Manager Best Friend

2016-11-22

When I called about the program I did not think I would be affordable. My sale rep. (shelly) was great and told me she could make it affordable and step up payments. If I have a problem I call up support the walk me thought step by step, log on my computer, and talk there time to help me with what ever I need. My parents love that they can go on line and pay or use there credit card at the school. Not only is the program GREAT but the staff is GREAT to I have never had a bad experience yet and it has been 2 1/2 years now.

Pros

Able to work away from the office, does everything I need for report, billing, shots updates, parent check in, sign-in sheets, to taxes.

Cons

Recommendations to others considering Tuition Express

this is the best investment you can make for your business. Great for people just starting out and not use to make report for daycare, this program will do it all, and support will help show you how It works. Also you get a free demo cd so before you buy you can try it out and check out all the functions.
