Drop In Childcare Center Management Software
Only Professional and Affordable Solution"
DropInCare Sage is PC-Based and Installed
DropInCare Sage is PC-based and installed. It is not web based,
and doesn't need an internet connection to work.
comparing pc-based and web-based systems, let's start with the
obvious and really only advantage of web based systems; the ability
to use the program anywhere you have an internet connection. Of
course this can also be a disadvantage if there is no internet
connection, or if the connection is down. After all, are you open
10 hours a day, or 9 hours and 40 minutes if your internet connection
goes down? Web based systems make sense for organizations who
have people in different locations that must all look at the same
data, does your center need that?
largest disadvantage of web-based systems has to do with who owns
your data. With a web-based system, you are leasing the software
from a company. You type your information into their website,
it is stored on their website, and you use it from their website.
What if something happens to the web based company? What if the
company decides to raise the monthly cost? Since you are really
leasing the software, you have no control. Some users might also
have privacy concerns about keeping their childcare information
disadvantage of web-based systems is speed and how you can use
the system. Most people use the internet to read information and
emails, look up information, or watch videos. Users usually interact
with the internet by writing emails or going to a banking site.
All of these activities have 1 thing in common: you are spending
a lot more time reading text than you are interacting with the
screen. You don't really notice the delay in going from screen
to screen because you are not going from screen to screen that
often. Using a web-based system that you interact with, and jump
from account to account and screen to screen with is a different
experience. As an example, think of the last time you logged into
your credit card account online. Looking at transactions required
clicking several buttons as you moved to a detailed view and each
click resulted in a wait of several seconds. Now imagine having
50 accounts you are looking through, which is the case if you
have 50 children or families at your center.
disadvantage of web-based systems is the cost, at least when compared
to our DropInCare Sage. A web-based system that costs $125
a month adds up to $1,500 per year, every year. That is
considerably more expensive than the DropInCare Sage.
final disadvantage of web-based systems really only applies when
comparing them to the DropInCare Sage. You will not find a web-based
system with anywhere near the functionality of the DropInCare Sage
in terms of record keeping, billing, and batch processing.
