To put it simply, what distinguishes Child Care Seer from every other software tool on the market is that it doesn’t only tell you when Johnny has attended and what classroom he is in now, it can also tell you when Johnny might be able to attend in the future. It’s a win-win
What do artificial intelligence, a profit margin, and a three-year old child have in common? The answer is not, “They can be difficult to develop.” Child Care Seer brings these three elements together in a childcare software platform that brings the future to the present while being informed by the past.
A seer, in ancient times, was a person considered to have a supernatural ability to see into the future. Seers were very common in ancient Greece, where their roles were to serve as advisors to kings. They were thought to be experts as divining information from the gods and were well-respected and well-educated members of society. In battle, they were the king’s right-hand man.
Today, the king has been replaced by the commoner, and our battles are metaphorical. Yet, wouldn’t it be more than a little helpful to have a seer by our sides? The artificial intelligence of the world today takes the place of the ancient seer. A few generations ago, the idea that a machine could make predictions and suggestions that would help someone increase their profit margin would have seemed as much a fantasy as the idea that person could truly foretell the winner of a battle.
A Software Made for Daycare Management
But Child Care Seer does just that. It gives the daycare owner and director suggestions for the future – when to add a new teacher, for example– in a way that no other software does. Using artificial intelligence, Child Care Seer takes data from the past and present and makes suggestions for the business owner that can improve profit margin.
A busy owner, wrapped up in the day-to-day management of operations, may not have time to explore whether expanding the business would be profitable. Child Care Seer runs the numbers for her, such as adding a hypothetical new employee’s schedule with current employees’ and running potential models. It can also tell the owner when the addition of another child would enable an owner to find that sweet spot where profit can be increased while maintaining quality of care.
In the past, daycare was a one-size-fits-all proposition, where parents paid for care five days a week, all day, regardless of whether they needed that or not. In the present, some daycares allow parents to choose a half-day option. But also, in the present, and going forward into the future, more and more people will no longer be working a regular 8-5, Monday through Friday schedule. Child Care Seer is a software for parents too, bringing that future into the present, by allowing parents to pay for the care they actually need, and not for the care they don’t need.
For example, Child Care Seer will allow a parent to look online and see that, although their child has been coming every morning each week, there is availability for him to come every Tuesday afternoon for the next five weeks. The parent will then make the request to the director, who will in turn make the decision about whether that arrangement would work. The center can charge a higher price and sell empty slots, and the parents can receive the care they need. Child Care Seer manages a process that would be difficult and time-prohibitive for owners to do by intuition.
And just as the seers were educated in history and current events, Child Care Seer can generate past attendance and timesheet reports, and in the present, check students in, allow parents to view and pay invoices, and allow teachers to view their schedules.
To put it simply, what distinguishes Child Care Seer from every other software tool on the market is that it doesn’t only tell you when Johnny has attended and what classroom he is in now, it can also tell you when Johnny might be able to attend in the future. It’s a win-win situation, where parents can pay for what they really need and owners can not only increase profits, they can also free up time to do what they would rather do: talk to parents about Johnny’s progress and communicate with teachers. As a wise person once said, “The future informs the present as much as the past.” Child Care Seer‘s daycare software informs the present, and in a way that has not been done before.
