Ayrmer Software is celebrating 18 years in business

Ayrmer Software, the software development company behind CoB is celebrating 18 years in business and has worked within education since 2004. Initially, we worked with City Academies like Mossbourne & Petchey City Academies, but after developing the on-line booking system for Fun in School Holidays (FiSH), back in 2011, we've worked with the wraparound childcare sector and are now a market leading provider within the sector itself.

It is hard to believe where the last eighteen years have gone, it's been a journey and we've had an amazing ride! Thank you to all our clients, suppliers, employees (both past and present).

Our industry has changed beyond recognition, but we have adopted to your needs and are still making complex tasks simple! The Childcare on-line Booking system (CoB) is great example that enables over 700 wraparound childcare settings to process bookings, processing over five million pounds each year.

The business is still headed up by Charlie Collins (Managing Director) and supported by Andy Carne, who joined the business in September 2020.


We had a look through the archives and dug out some of the very first projects we worked on between 2002 - 2004 that included Best Cellars & Healthy Pulses ecommerce websites, a maintenance portal for the Montpellier Group that was used in - amongst other places - Windsor Castle, The Amber Foundation, Summit Events, Easy PC, Absolute Translations and Shakers Restaurant.

We have used CoB since September 2017 and found it to be an excellent system for our bookings. Parents have found the features useful and it has made our management of the bookings process much simpler and smoother. Charlie and his team are always on...
