New York, NY (PRWEB) August 08, 2012
Last week, Guardian Care, a leading software development company for the child care industry, revealed new functionalities to its premiere offering, ProviderGuard, the nation's first daycare software focused specifically on child care payment histories.The new enhancements will enable ProviderGuard to be even more accessible and user-friendly for its child care service provider clients and although proprietary, the solution is scalable and valuable to providers when used alone or with existing child care management software. An estimated one out of ten child care businesses are in jeopardy of going out of business each year due to parents who fail to pay their bills. Guardian Care's web-based child care software, ProviderGuard, changes that statistic for its users. ProviderGuard provides child care providers across America with a means of reporting parents for non-payment, a pay-as-you-go child care payment history background tool, and a competitively low-cost collection service.
According to Giovanni Paul, the developer of Guardian Care's child care software, the new features incorporate innovation and insight from its users. "No one knows the challenges of running a daycare business better than our members. When they speak, we listen, and the new functionalities reflect that."
Since its introduction, this child care management software has been an instant hit with daycare providers including Jody's Daycare from Springfield, Missouri."If a parent sticks one provider, they're going to stick another one, no doubt. I would rather not enroll them at all but I love this site because providers have options. I've tried doing this on my own, but other providers in my area didn't want to share information because of concerns about competition. Competition is not a concern with ProviderGuard", shared Jody.
ProviderGuard eases all concerns providers may have in seeking repayment or reporting nonpayment, while protecting their clientele. In order to view a prospective client's payment history, a provider must enter specific identifying information, such as the client's social security number, driver’s license or the prospective parents’ name and address, which the provider obtains when they apply for service. As a result, child care providers can use the ProviderGuard without worrying about competitors trying to lure their other clients away.
Jody's Daycare also shared frustrations with collecting for non-payment, "We can turn a bounced check over to the court but can't sue for the fee we charge. I had a parent who fought and didn't have to pay. The court let her slide just because she’d paid half of the outstanding bill."
In addition to reporting and lookup tools specific to the child care industry, ProviderGuard's software integrates its Debt Guard offering, a low-cost, flat fee debt collection service.
"Our solutions are designed to empower child care professionals with useful information and cost-effective tools," Paul explained. "While other daycare software programs exist for scheduling, attendance, payroll, accounting, and other needed child care facility operations, none have addressed the issue of non-payment—until now! The new functions of our web-based child care management software helps small and large child care facilities alike, make decisions based on a client's past child care payment history even more quickly!"
ProviderGuard's reporting service is free for preschool, home daycare, and child care facility owners across the U.S. Visit http://www.guardiancaresoftware.com to learn more about our offerings and sign up today!
