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

“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.”

“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’”

“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.“

“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.”

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

“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!”

“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!’”

“I feel like Famly is tailored for my center. Having everything automated creates space for us to breathe. Instead of poring over staff time sheets, or billing and invoices, I can do those all in a batch with a click.”

“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.”

“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.”

“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.”

FLEET Early Learning Station

“Our families love the app and the ability to receive communication all day via messages, pictures, and notifications – it truly allows the learning center and the parents to connect.  Famly is the best child care app we have ever worked with.”

“We used to use ProCare but found it to be incredibly clunky. We then switched to Sandbox software for a year but found they were not innovating very fast. We finally found Famly and haven’t looked back since.”
