Childcare software provider strikes direct debit deal

 

Software provider NumeroPro has signed a deal with Ezi Payment Solutions that will add direct debit functionality to its Childcare centre software suite.

Ezi Payment Solutions' Ezi Debit system will be added to NumeroPro's ChildcarePro software suite, which has been designed to ease the administrative burden childcare centre operators face.

NumeroPro's Manager, Pat McLean, says the system was chosen because of Ezi Payment's longstanding reputation in the childcare industry.

“[Ezi Payment] already have quite an exposure to childcare direct payment systems and their integrated solution was very complementary to our software,” he says.

According to McLean, the alliance will allow NumeroPro to offer an integrated system, which will reduce data entry errors and free up time for childcare workers and administrators.

“Instead of doing some manual transactions which people have had to do previously, this [agreement] sees the full integration of the Ezi Debit payment gateway to NumeroPro’s software," he says. “There is no double handling of data entry, which has reduced the potential for mistakes and errors.”

The system will also make life easier for the parents, McLean expects.

“Parents can set and forget - if they have a child in care three days a week they can easily set to have the gap payment paid through Ezi Debit,” McLean says.

Childcare centres will also be able to save money under the arrangement, as both services will be available for the cost of one suite.

McLean says this development is particularly exciting for NumeroPro as the company is now another step closer to becoming a one-stop child care software and system provider.
