Bignold Primary School & Nursery have launched their new out of school club booking system and chose our software to provide parents a facility to book their children onto before and after school clubs run by the school. The school provide a range of out of school childcare, including their Busy Bees Before / After School clubs and Holiday Play Schemes.
The school initially approach Ayrmer Software in 2014, prior toThe Childcare on-line Bookingsystem being launched. At that stage Ayrmer Software were only able to offer a turnkey solution that costs substantially more that CoB. Having launched CoB and reduced the cost, it enabled Bignold Primary School & Nursery to implement an on-line booking system for parents. It was launched in early May and as of two months later processed in excess of 1,755 individual session bookings
We needed a better solution for the booking and payment of our out of school childcare club so after exploring options online we approached Ayrmer Software who gave us a trial of their CoB. We were impressed with the trial so decided to go ahead with the CoB (after applying for online payments). The system has worked really well. Parents are now able to make booking online and make payments at the same time, which stops us having to chase outstanding payments. They are able to see what they have booked at any time and update their personal details as things change. Ayrmer have been fantastic in supporting us with the roll out of the system and any initial teething problems (which you get with a new system) which have now all been resolved. We would definitely use them again in the future if a need arose.
