Barbara Bone needs management software that helps her to be efficient and effective in managing all of the processes that fuel the Child Educational Center’s finances. Jackrabbit has been the center’s solution of choice since 2012 and Barbara uses it to make easy work of managing and tracking 600 to 1000 students and parents.
“I like the Jackrabbit’s design because it works in principle like Excel – only based on classes instead of accounting. Once you understand that, you’ve got it.”
The Child Educational Center has lots of kids with lots of classes and that make for complex scheduling. Jackrabbit gives Barbara the flexibility she needs to set the schedules up and track all of their students without a hitch.
“Jackrabbit handles the details of all of our complexities without the need for me to get manually involved. I’m not what I’d define as computer savvy – more like computer aware – but it didn’t take me long to establish a good level of proficiency with the system.”
Complex class scheduling – no problem.
Barbara takes Jackrabbit through its paces in some key areas. She using sorting extensively to manage the all the kids and the unique way they schedule classes. It’s critical for the center to have detailed money management and all of the details that affect billing and payment collection. Transaction features and automated discounting give Barbara the ability to automatically apply special circumstances to the right accounts.
“Jackrabbit gives me what I need to keep my finger on every financial detail. Statements work well for me and what’s even better is that our parents like them. They get it and appreciate how much easier the software makes it to interact with us.”
Jackrabbit is easy for parents to grasp without asking a lot of questions. It’s a big plus for the center that the parents like what Jackrabbit does for the operations end of the business.
“I’m not what I’d define as computer savvy – more like computer aware – but it didn’t take me long to establish a good level of proficiency with the system. From day one I had great confidence in my ability to do everything I need to do in Jackrabbit because of the safety net that the excellent support team provides. They have my back when I need a question answered. Based on my initial information, they can come back with resolutions or with the right questions to get to the root of my issue. It’s excellent support. They’re smart enough to gather information first so they can come to the conversation prepared to quickly get to the root of my issue.”
