NumeroPro and FFA PaySmart have joined forces to create a powerful 1.5 Registered CCMS and Payment Solution.

The two firms bring years of experience and technical knowledge to PaySmartPLUS+WebKids, a project that marks an Australian first among registered Child Care Management Systems.

(Location, Date, Service) –In an effort to provide Australia's Childcare providers with more commercial, convenient options for management and accounting while also bringing together their distinct yet complementary strengths, firms NumeroPro and FFA PaySmart have recently announced the forging of a new partnership. The union has produced a unique product leveraging NumeroPro's popular Kidsoft Management Suite and PaySmart's ‘Benchmark” direct debit billing capabilities. The result is PaySmartPLUS+WebKids, which delivers the ideal set of options and functionality for day-to-day Childcare centre management along with a powerful billing solution for processing payments and credit control. The new product is set to launch at the Childcare Queensland 2012 National Conference at Jupiter Gold Coast from the 14th to the 16th of September.

The two firms first met early this year to discuss possible avenues for the creation of a truly optimised product primed to meet the needs of the growing Australian Childcare market. FFA PaySmart, which has worked extensively with Childcare providers throughout the country, recognised the particular ability of NumeroPro's platform to offer compliance advantages while also improving the quality and efficiency of Child Care services. NumeroPro's achievement of 1.5 Registration with The Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations (DEEWR), along with the platform's accessible tools for the Government's often-complex Early Years Learning Framework reporting constituted eye-catching potential for the payment processor.

While several products are vying for attention from Australian Childcare professionals, only the firms' new PaySmartPLUS+WebKids solution offers a complete, fully compliant suite of products and services ensuring high fee collection rates through credit control protocols delivering higher cash flow yields. PaySmart’s cloud-based WebExpress application offers access to data and all features anytime, anywhere with an Internet connection. Free reports, IT support, and dedicated Business Development Managers help make PaySmartPLUS+WebKids an especially appealing option for Australia’s Childcare service providers. The partnership helps highlight the emerging technical excellence of firms interested in the Childcare sector in Australia – as well as their ability to come together for the production of superior solutions.
