MEDFORD, Ore. & DENVER–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Procare Software, a global leader in child care management solutions, today announced it has completed an acquisition of KidReports, a leading provider of real time reporting technology and services to child care providers. This strategic acquisition creates a “one-stop” solution designed to meet the complete management and parent communication needs of child care businesses and organizations.
The world’s largest provider of child care management software, services and hardware, Procare offers desktop and cloud hosted solutions that allow for automated collection of tuition, fees and other payments, as well as modules to track student attendance, immunizations, menus and meals, and parent and emergency contact and other information. Procare serves more than 35,000 child care providers in a variety of facilities from single-unit operations to multinational enterprises. KidReports’ software as a service (SaaS) web-based reporting system allows providers to create a secure personal online profile of each child to track their activities and communicate with parents. Providers can share photos, videos and other information, and profiles can be updated hourly or daily, allowing parents to stay connected with their children throughout the day. KidReports’ software automates a number of providers’ administrative tasks, replacing paper daily reports, providing online and secure data storage, and aiding with license compliance.
“We are thrilled to welcome KidReports, the established standard for classroom management and parent engagement, to the Procare family of products and services,” said JoAnn Kintzel, President and CEO, Procare Software. “The combination of Procare’s comprehensive suite of child care software and services, and KidReports’ real-time reporting framework and infrastructure provides an all-in-one unbeatable solution for child care organizations of all sizes.”
