Key Features & Benefits
for Nursery Groups

Centralised processes

Centralised processes allow large multi-site nurseries to manage all of their settings from a centralised database without losing any flexibility for individual settings.

The ability to run full group reports, drill down into individual settings or create subgroups gives you full flexibility to analyse the data you need the most.

Cross-Site Staff Management

StaffPlan is the only tool on the market that allows you to manage complex staffing requirements across multiple sites, from one single centralised record. Assign staff across their preferred settings and assess their suitability to reduce your reliance on agency staff. Automate complicated payroll processes and eliminate the need for multiple spreadsheets.

"Connect has freed up our management team to access data and reports whenever they need them and enabled managers to have better control over their own site."

"Payments through ParentZone have had a significant impact throughout all our sites. Previously, we’ve spent time chasing parents for unpaid invoices, whereas the new system allows parents to pay at much more convenient times, in a more convenient way."

Boost Enquiry Conversions

Track and analyse enquiry conversions with pipeline and tracking reports. Help to protect or improve your occupancy levels with useful enquiry tracking tools.  

Improve Cashflow & Reduce Debt

In-app payments allow you to collect instant payments from parents. With the cheapest rates available (from 0.99%) ParentZone payments increase the speed of payment collection and stop the need for manual payment reconciliations.
