The problem: No operational standards across teams and centers.

Whether you oversee three centers or 300, standardized operations are critical for your success.  

But with staff and family records spread out among six or more different systems, how can you be sure your team members are all on the same page? 

You could always schedule a classic “meeting that could have been an email” meeting. Or try a Zoom call if everyone’s schedule lines up.  

Of course, you could ask your directors to perform the room-to-room rounds, popping into classrooms and sending you email recaps so you can manually piece together the information you need. 

If this sounds messy, that’s because it is. 

With the right digital platform, you can centralize family and staff records without complicated user permissions or multiple sign-ins. With one simple login and one simple search, team members can access the records, reports, and insights they need anytime, anywhere.
