“If another company told us that you can have ten years of software for free, we’d tell them we’re not interested.”

Heather Thomas
Cywion Bach

“The whole week at the end of the month used to be set aside for invoicing, now I do it at the click of a button.”

Neil Leitch
Early Years Alliance

“When I ask how Famly is going, the one thing staff say to me is that ‘you should have done this a long time ago’”

Gemma Williams
Maggie & Rose

“The invoicing system, it's magical. It's really, really easy to use. It's so easy being able to do everything at the press of a button.“

Teresa Neill
Blackberry Lane Nursery

“It was just so easy to use, I whizzed through it. It was just so straightforward and logical. I’m not particularly technical either, but if I can work it out, anybody can.”

Nick Wedderburn
Early Buds

“Parents absolutely love it. We tell every parent who comes to visit about Famly and they think it’s just amazing.”

Debbie Gibson
Blackberry Lane Nursery

“You always get an answer. The support is second to none. We had support from our old provider but we didn’t get phone calls or training sessions or feedback… or even answers sometimes!”

Kirsty Harkins
Twiggs Lane Pre-school

“Parents can just see, ‘Yes my child’s happy, they’re fine, they’re playing.’ Famly allows us to do all that without staff thinking, ‘Oh my gosh, I have to write an observation!’”

John Gilliland
Goulton Grange Day Nursery

“I can do the invoices in five minutes. With the old Excel system it took hours. I know they’re done, I know they’ve been sent, so I can get back on with something that will be generating more business.”

Rob Danks
Honey’s Nest

“Parents don’t have to wait for a consultation three times a year to see what their child is learning at nursery. Parents can log in and see straight away that their child has achieved something.”

Christina Demetriou
Early Buds

“It’s changed our whole company, it really has. Things needed to modernise and Famly’s a massive part of that. Everything’s at the touch of a button.”

Katie Thompson
Coconut Nursery

“For good reason, parents don’t like having all these different logins. They much prefer having it all in one place. Famly is just so intuitive and so easy to use, and that really helps us get parents on board.”
