Meet the team behind the Childcare on-line Booking (coB) system and a bit more about Ayrmer Software, the bespoke software business behind CoB that’s designed for nurseries, pre-schools, primary schools, academies, Multi Academy Trusts (MAT), sports clubs and holiday camps.
Charlie Collins (Managing Director) is the driving force behind CoB and wrote the original bespoke solution for Fun in School Holidays (FiSH) back in 2011. He is passionate about delivering a solution that works for nurseries, pre-schools, primary schools, academies, Multiple Academy Trusts (MAT), sports clubs and holiday camps alike and is determined to build a reputation for excellence. He is also determined to ensure that CoB is secure against cyber threats and maintains the software firewall that protects all of our systems.
Charlie founded Ayrmer Software in 2002 and the business was incorporated in 2008. Whilst the core business focuses on bespoke business solutions for a variety of sectors, they have worked within education since 2004, when they developed an admissions system for Mossbourne City Academy in Hackney, which is now used by academies and MATs across the United Kingdom.

Tracey Smith (Office Manager & Technical Support) looks after the team and keeps everyone organised, but also sets up the demos and will often be the first point of contact. She loves to shrink things, including your booking administration!
Tracey is mother of four and a lovely bubbly individual, who understands the challenges of organising childcare around work commitments.
Nikki (Technical Support) is has only just joined the team and will be helping Tracey with first line technical support and is also a mother of four, so like Tracey, can relate to the needs of both parents and clubs.
Andy (Sales) is responsible for reach out to new nurseries, pre-schools, clubs, camps and schools and is our 007.
Sam, Nick & Simon (System Administrators) look after our internal and public facing servers. They have all worked with Charlie for over 10 years and have supported the development team and office staff throughout. Simon also looks after all the internal platform, including the VoIP system.
Andy (Design & Marketing) has again worked with Charlie for over ten years and whilst he is no longer full time, he is a great resource for the business.
