What Our Customers Are Saying

The speed of the program and going from one page to the next is brilliant. The frequent absence report is very easy to understand and follow and makes the job of reconfirming bookings much easier. The staff roster quick add is an absolute time saver. Having the ability for parents to enquire and enrol online cuts down any data entry errors and time. Using the ipad as tool to do this when parents come to view the centre, makes it fast and efficient getting them to the actual tour quicker. Parents are really enjoying the iPad sign in system and it is working very well for us - Robyn Waterfall
The Discover team have been very responsive to our needs, the dashboard clearly show us our occupancy and % staff contact hours plus other features so we can quickly see how the centre is performing. The automatic invoicing and reminder emails saves us so much time and we can't wait to go onto using ipads for children's sign in and out - Yve Groot

We purchased our preschool just on two years ago with an existing SMS. Having previously worked in IT within the financial sector, I was hoping for a more modern and flexible system with the capabilities that I expected from technology and that I knew would significantly reduce time spent on general administration tasks. Discover was impressive from the first moment. Very quickly into our demonstration we could see that this system was well thought out and heavily aligned with our business requirements and wishes. Time spent on administration now is minimal. Our transitional and ongoing support has been second to none. Further development and new system releases have continually surpassed expectations so we are confident that we will continue to enjoy a long-term relationship with the team at Discover - Fenella Wilson
We recently made the switch to Discover after hearing great things about it. I would completely recommend the software, not only has it greatly reduced our admin time, the invoicing system is simple and easy to understand for us and parents. Reporting is much easier and I haven’t even used a third of the reports available! The whole system is intuitive and really easy to pick up. The whole team at Discover have been a pleasure to work with, answering questions in a really timely manner and making the switch over straightforward. Rachael Oates
I've been using Discover Childcare Software for 18 months and not only it has shortened the amount of data entry time on my part, it is also user friendly, easy to navigate and simple to use software with so many useful reports and cool features all at your finger tips. Highly recommended!! - Rosita Euini
In my role as Administrator, I have found Discover easy to use and intuitive. It gives easy to follow, real time data which is brilliant to see at a glance. And the support team are fantastic with their quick responses. It truly is a company that strives to keep up with the needs of the times, and with the needs of each individual client. Theresa - Magnolia Tree Childcares
Ewart and the team are knowledgeable and this shows in the functionality of Discover. It's easy to use, will be a time-saver and is backed up with super-efficient and timely customer service. A winning combo! Sherene, Murrays Bay Childcare
Discover plays a pivotal role in the management of our early learning centre and we continue to be grateful for the guidance provided to ensure we are utilising all of the wonderful capabilities it entails Macaela - Director of Mini Thinkers
The team at Discover are fantastic, they are quick to get back to you if you have a query and nothing is too much trouble Kirsten Gilberd

I had been an APT user for many, many years, but soon into the webinar I realised this new program could revolutionise my administrative role. I spent the next couple of days setting 'Discover' up myself, choosing not to have the Discover team transport it for me (I am an active learner). The instructions were very easy to follow and when I needed support I only had to phone for immediate attention.

I am now able to print reports for everything, my roster, and invoices (even sending them) are done automatically. Staff rosters were very easy to input the information and the connection to our payroll is easy. I no longer have to fill in amounts paid by parents I simply export our bank statement and they are inputted into the correct parent’s accounts, which makes reconciliation easy.

I have not learned everything yet as it is still new, but so far everything I have seen and tried out, is brilliant. This program has great support, is innovative and meets all the requirements of the Ministry of Education and our own needs. I would recommend the program to any busy ECE service.
