Check, the Procare team on the daycare product
Start-up Payroll-as-a-Service Check has partnered with Procare Solutions, which works in child care management software, to improve how daycares can pay their employees, according to a statement Press.
The partnership will use Check’s software to help Procare integrate payroll capabilities, the statement said.
The nature of the link is crucial, the statement said, as child care has been hit hard by the pandemic as the services provided can only be provided in person. The numerous waves of COVID-19 have had destabilizing effects.
Administrators have wanted to implement different payroll services for years, although the pandemic has also slowed them down on this, the statement said.
The partnership will help Procare develop an automated way to take payments at daycare centers, a product likely to be rolled out in early 2022, the statement said.
“Procare is a leader in the child care industry and is uniquely positioned to meet the needs of this community,” Check CEO and co-founder Andrew Brown said in the statement. “That’s why we’re excited to partner with Procare to bring integrated payroll solutions to daycare centers, taking one of the most time-consuming processes a business takes off its plate. “
Procare CEO JoAnn Kintzel said in the statement that the idea was to make childcare payments easier.
“We frequently hear from clients that they want to simplify the payment of their teams, and Check was the ideal partner to execute this mandate, allowing us to offer a one-stop-shop for the operational and administrative needs of our clients”, a- she declared. “We are excited to integrate Check’s technology into our platform to help us deliver an efficient and specific childcare payroll offering, so our clients can get back to providing quality child care. “
In other news related to children, another innovation was the introduction of an e-commerce platform from toy retailer Camp NYC called Present Shop, which allows young children to shop online. The way it works is adults budget and kids buy within it.
