Happy Hippo Childcare & Kindergarten is a group of privately owned centres that takes a holistic approach to early education. The team believes in all theories and philosophies of child education, as they understand every child develops in their unique way. The centres offer a variety of extra-curricular activities including sports, Italian lessons, cooking and excursions to spots such as museums.
Happy Hippo is dedicated to early education and the staff who care for the children, including support programs for trainees and students. Their practices ensure every educator receives quality training and develops skills which they can dedicate to child education. Happy Hippo was looking for a modern childcare management software alternative when they learnt about Xap Technologies.
When looking for a CCS Software, Belle, General Manager from Happy Hippo Brunswick, says “We were after a one-stop-shop with beneficial features that could streamline accounts and management while centralising family data and provide two-way family communication.” Having just migrated their 3rd centre onto Xap’s software, Belle further explained, “We particularly love for the bulk emailing function and how easy the technology is to navigate which simplifies important tasks such as the ACCS and ISS. This saves us hours of administration time every week.”
Belle explained that transitioning CCS software is a big decision and can take some time for centre staff and parents to adjust however there can be great benefits. Her advice to new centres looking to make a change is to “recognise what you want from a centre and parent point of view to improve efficiency and general experience and then consider switching to a modern system, next-generation system” which is why they moved to Xap.
Xap is disrupting the childcare industry with 100+ features and AI-driven analytics for the enterprise. Xap makes the most complicated tasks fast, simple, digital, and reliable.
