The speed of the program and going from one page to the next is brilliant. The frequent absence report is very easy to understand and follow and makes the job of reconfirming bookings much easier. The staff roster quick add is an absolute time saver. Having the ability for parents to enquire and enrol online cuts down any data entry errors and time. Using the ipad as tool to do this when parents come to view the centre, makes it fast and efficient getting them to the actual tour quicker. Parents are really enjoying the iPad sign in system and it is working very well for us.
