Why Jackrabbit is the #1 Software for Child Care Centers

Jackrabbit offers everything studios need to operate and grow. Here are just some of the reasons why more than 5,000 customers love using our all-in-one, online software solution.

  1. We give you help when you need it. Your work hours aren’t 9 am to 5 pm, Monday through Friday so your need for help doesn’t always happen then either. We understand this, so we’re available to you when it fits your schedule. Whether you’re processing payments for the first time or setting your online registration for a new session, your Jackrabbit support team is there for you with quick responses that will help you get your work done in a timely manner.

One thing is for sure, we not only want you to get our help when you need it, but we also want you to do it in the way that makes you most comfortable. For those reasons, we offer support using the fastest possible method – a Support Button available on every screen of your Jackrabbit software. Regardless of where you are working in Jackrabbit, you can click the button and get help. Submit a ticket, chat or schedule a phone call with our support team. We’re available for you and eager to help you with whatever software issue is challenging you.

“We love that we have a voice with Jackrabbit Care. Our suggestions for new features are greeted with enthusiasm, and they do everything they can to add those enhancements to the system for all their clients to have.” Cristin Jensen from Central Christian Academy

“Jackrabbit Care has been wonderful to me. They help me solve problems, they help me get set up. They are always ready to answer questions. They are always improving the site to make it dummy friendly.” Kathy Schaeffer, Kathy’s Child Care

  1. We help you give your parents what they need. Your center’s parents are pretty needy, and they reach out to you for everything from simple questions to asking about more convenient ways to pay. We make it possible for you to eliminate the calls, the emails, and the interruptions to your day with the Parent Portal. We give you 365/24/7 access to accounts, calendars, class listings and schedules and invoices– everything parents want from you.

The Parent Portal is one of the most powerful components of the Jackrabbit platform, because it helps you make your center’s parents very happy. You can be available 365/24/7 with no extra staffing or extra hours by offering secure processes and information to parents. They have convenience, and you eliminate data entry and manual payment processing from your to-do list!

“Jackrabbit’s Portal and Online Registration have made a big difference with parents. They control their own information and their own destinies because we give them the tools to manage their accounts at the best time and from the best place for them. That is a real differentiator.” Kyle Grussmeyer, All Star Legacy

“Jackrabbit’s Online Registration and Parent Portal totally transform the way parents do business with your school and eliminate the drudgery of entering data and processing payments by hand.” Buffy Folise, Chicago Swim School

“The Parent Portal is one of the best features of Jackrabbit! Our parents love the accountability and freedom it offers them. The program is very user-friendly and support is fast and accurate. We are so glad we chose this program, it has saved us time and energy in an already busy environment.” Elizabeth Small, Define Dance Space LLC

  1. You always know where your money is. Who has paid tuition and who hasn’t? Are more checks in the mail? Whose credit card was declined? Jackrabbit makes it possible for you to eliminate inefficient payment methods and collections and to simply get your money quickly. With Jackrabbit, you always know how much you’ve collected and any issues payments have encountered.

The Executive Dashboard gives users a window into the areas of their business that are most important to them. Owners may want different data than Directors, and Directors may want to see something different than teachers. For these very reasons, we’ve made the dashboard customizable to the needs and desires of the person who is logged in.

“Jackrabbit’s Dashboard gives me a quick glance into the most important details of my business so I can stay in touch with daily wins and challenges. It also opens the window into class details and this is very important in knowing what is really going on with students and instructors.” Wilma Lee, 4Cats South Burnaby

“The simplicity of an online system means we no longer have to think about updates and maintenance of the software, and the convenience of anywhere access enables us to provide detailed answers – regardless of where we are when a parent asks questions.” Jason Bergstrom, West University Baptist Church’s KidStuff

  1. We’ve always put you first. From the very beginning, we built our software around what you need by asking, listening and doing. We constantly enhance our software, putting in place more than 200 enhancements per year based on your requests and the challenges which you share with us. We always work toward a higher level of excellence so that you can efficiently operate and effortlessly grow your business. It is truly all about you.

The Submit Idea button is proof that you’re priority one. This is a key part of the Jackrabbit software development plan, because it is critical to how we learn what you need, what concerns you and what makes you happy.

“Reports are just one example of how we know that Jackrabbit pays attention to our needs in trying to fashion the solution in a way that makes sense for our type business. You can’t put a dollar value on that kind of attention to detail.” Joanna Harmon, Blount County Extended School Program

“Jackrabbit’s open attitude toward user input on development is refreshing! Through the Submit Idea button, we know that we’re putting our ideas directly in front of those who create new features and enhancements. We usually quickly hear back that our idea is on the development schedule. ” JR & Kelley Zeringue, ACE All Stars Gadsden

“Since implementing Jackrabbit in 2008, we’ve used the “Submit Idea” button in our application many times to share our software epiphanies with them. It is a great tool that connects us directly with development. The continuous enhancement list shows that they pay attention to what we say.” Amy Allen, Turning Pointe

  1. We give you training anytime you need it. From the time you become a Jackrabbit user until you’re a “seasoned” user, we have training for you! When you’re setting up critical components, having guides can be a tremendous comfort. When you’re brushing up on features you haven’t used in a while, videos help you brush up on the details. When you’re setting up online registration on your website or in your parent portal, step-by-step instructions can save your sanity. It’s obvious from these examples that training is crucial. We believe good training is important in helping you to become proficient and happy with our software!

We make our training even better by providing it to you in multiple ways: getting started tools, online help and guides, subject specific videos, online interactive training, and one-on-one Jumpstart or Utilization Review phone calls.

“Jackrabbit made sure we were off to a good start. The Jump Start Call did more than help us get our database set up. It also gave us great confidence in using the software to the max. The videos are awesome tools because we can look at them whenever we need a little refresher in one area or another.” – Shelby Bruyer, Co-Owner, Amaze Dance Studio

  1. You can trust us. We don’t just want your trust, we’re willing to earn it. And we believe you can have confidence in us:
  • To protect and secure your data.
  • To run your processes efficiently and accurately.
  • To keep your systems up and running with 99.99% up time.
  • To maintain the highest quality of services and integrity of business practices.
  • To be here years from now.

We take pride in the quality, security and reliability of our system. We keep our systems (and your data) in the same data center where banks and major global corporations store their systems and data. Because of this, we can promise you the highest uptime percentages not only in our industry but among all technology solutions. Our development staff believes in excellence and reliability, so we use the highest development standards and constantly test, test, test, test.

Summed up, this means that we take the high road in business and development practices to ensure that you have the best software and a trustworthy partner for today and for the long term.

“Being with Jackrabbit from its beginning stages has – in itself – been a benefit to us. We have seen the system mature and that gives us a very intimate understanding of its inner workings. Several components of the system have been business-changing for us along the way and that is how we know that the company keeps our best interest top-of-mind. They continuously seek out and provide ‘that next thing’ that we need to keep our business humming.” Scott Davis, eNeRGy Kidz

“Jackrabbit has renewed our confidence in our operations. We don’t worry about downtime or outages because they just don’t happen with Jackrabbit and we have support resources that we can depend on.” Jeff Lulla, Fun & Fit Gymnastics

“Jackrabbit saved us from an inefficient software system and has provided us with control over our processes and insight into our information. The value it delivers makes the cost of our previous software seem unjustified! I’m very impressed and pleased that Jackrabbit is willing to improve their products as I grow and improve my business.” Keith Pinkston, New Orleans Dance Academy
