Award-Winning Nursery Management Software
Abacus Nursery Management Software was the first online solution for childcare providers in the UK, and the only one to win the coveted Nursery Management Award for Innovation. It was designed from the ground up as a web-based solution, and delivers unrivalled access to live information from any internet connected PC with Internet Explorer or MAC device, including iPad and iPhone, on Safari.
Abacus delivers joined up thinking across your nursery. Enter a piece of information once, and everything related to it will be updated instantly. For example, book an extra session, and registers, occupancy reports, contact lists, activity reports and invoices are all updated in real time. Data can be entered anywhere and there’s no limit on the number of users accessing the system.
Abacus is also the most flexible Nursery Management Software available, allowing you to book 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, in 15 minute segments. There’s no limit to the number of sessions you can create, and all data lists are easily customised to your exact needs. Sessions can even be booked in multiple week booking patterns, ensuring that you can offer parents exactly the attendance they need.
Abacus is intelligent too. Room movements are calculated automatically when booking, and the system will highlight any capacity issues, even if they occur far in the future, when other children change rooms. This is just one example of the management information Abacus can deliver at the click of a button.
Abacus comes with award-winning customer support, available 12 hours a day from 8am to 8pm, with a one hour guaranteed response to any query. Everything is confirmed in writing on our ticketing support desk, so you can review the advice you and your colleagues have been given.
Abacus is continually developed to support the administrational requirements of nursery managers across the UK. We listen to customer feedback to implement the very best features that ensures Abacus is the most intelligent and popular nursery management software in the market.
The popular childcare administration solution for nursery chains
Abacus offers an Enterprise edition for multiple nursery settings and chains. This provides a powerful centralised-interface to manage all your settings’ data in one place. Invoices can be generated centrally and vital information is available at the click of a button, without disturbing nursery managers.
Specifically designed for nurseries with multiple settings, Abacus Enterprise provides tangible insight into both the individual and collective performance of your business.
|“The return on investment from Abacus can be measured in weeks and not months. Turnover has improved, debt is easily managed and all staff finally have clarity on all aspects of the business.” Russell Hall, Childcare and Learning|
Centralised reporting interface
All your information and data is collated and transformed for easy review and comparison, providing you with a clear and concise report on the position of all your settings, summarising key performance indicators like finances, staffing, occupancy and enquiry levels on a single dashboard.
Comprehensive sales ledger
Specifically built for the early years sector, our Enterprise software has a comprehensive sales ledger that helps you accomplish all of your accounting needs.
Option to invoice from Head Office
With Enterprise, managing all your invoices across multiple settings becomes an easy task and avoids asking local managers to take time out from providing quality care. Abacus allows you to manage invoices centrally, with the ability to reconcile payments en-masse across multiple settings. You can also export the sales ledger directly to Sage.
