How Childcare Leaders Can Meet (and Beat) Revenue Goals!

Are you tired of chasing after payments from parents and guardians? 🏃

Does the thought of managing billing and payments give you a headache?  

Well, you're not alone. Many childcare directors like yourself face these challenges on a daily basis. 

But what if I told you that there's a solution that not only makes your life easier but also makes your customers happier? That's right, I'm talking about automated billing! 

In today's fast-paced world, convenience is key. Automated billing not only helps you meet your revenue goals quickly, but it also meets the needs of modern families who prefer to pay online. 

Let's dive in and discover how it can help you meet (and beat!) your revenue goals while keeping your families happy. 😊

Billing woes got you down? You're not alone: The struggle is real for managing billing in your childcare center.  

35% of childcare businesses say it takes an average of three to six days for families to pay tuition fees. And this is likely due (in no small part) to the fact that 66% of centers still rely on collecting physical checks and cash onsite. 

As a childcare director, you know that managing billing and payments can be a real headache. It's a time-consuming process that requires a lot of attention to detail, and even with the best intentions, mistakes can still happen. 

You’re constantly chasing down missing payments. It can be frustrating to remind parents and guardians weekly to pay their bills on time, especially when you have other important tasks to take care of.

And let's not forget deciphering illegible handwriting on checks, which can lead to errors and delays in processing payments.

Tasks for childcare staff

Unfortunately, that's not all...

Running to the bank or waiting in line for hours to cash checks is another issue that many childcare directors face. It's a time-consuming task that takes you away from running your center and providing the best care for your little ones. 

Finally, there's the issue of security. Handling financial data comes with a lot of responsibility, and a lack of security measures can put your center at risk of fraud and data breaches. 

All this can hurt your revenue goals. And no one wants that.

So don't let billing woes get you down. With automated billing, you can focus on what really matters - providing the best possible care for the little ones in your center. 

Work smarter, not harder: Meet your revenue goals with less work.

Automated billing is not only a game-changer for meeting revenue goals quickly — today’s families actually prefer it. Millennial parents use tools like Venmo, Zelle, and other cash apps on the daily — and 40% say they prefer self-service to human contact with businesses.  

By digitizing your billing and invoicing process and allowing parents to pay automatically with no re-authentication or re-login required, you make it easy for families to take care of outstanding payments themselves in a matter of minutes. 

To really make the most of automated billing, use digital tools that help you increase flexibility in how you bill. For example, if there’s an upcoming field trip, you’ll want a solution that makes it easy to charge individual profiles or entire groups. In LineLeader Manage, families can even adjust their own autopay preferences. 

Subsidies shouldn’t trip up your billing management solutions either. Use a digital platform that allows you to connect various types of subsidies to a child’s profile in minutes, not hours. 

More time and more money? 💸

The math is clear — digitizing your billing is good for business.
