Pros: Ease of use.

Color and design.

Cons: The lists that are off screen are frustrating and cause some errors.

Overall: This is a great program for keeping track of who is where. I only sign in and out and sign and move the group from location to location. The program is easy to use, clear to understand and visually pleasing. I have two minor complaints. Since the last upgrade, the screen is now positioned so that the bottom of the list of children is off-screen. When we scroll down to click on a child's name, our room box is off-screen at the top. This causes some frustration and false information sometimes as the name is dropped back onto the list rather than dropped into the room box.

It would be an excellent addition to the program if we could select more than one name at a time so that we could move a group of children from one box to another.

Other than that it's a beautiful program for the in class educators and parents!

Recommendations to other buyers: Add the ability to select more than one child at a time to move them into another location. Keep the boxes from jumping around when children are moved from one location to another. Arrange the screen so the lists and rooms boxes are always visible.

Thank you for your review Susan. Based on the description of the issue you're having I believe you're talking about the drag and drop functionality on the ratios page.

Please note that the primary purpose for the ratios page is to calculate your ratios in real time and to warn you if they are not being met, however you can also use drag and drop to move children and staff into and out of rooms on this page.

That functionality is typically performed on the child attendance page and the staff time sheet respectively as those pages are specifically designed for that purpose you won't experience those issues there.

Please email me at support@timesavr.net if you have any questions regarding this or any further feedback.

Pros: The ability to sign kids in and out as well as staff and it keeps track of hours and that you can invoice from the program

Cons: That it is sometimes very slow to log children in and out and that the invoices don't transfer to quick books

Overall: After the last update I had to change all my tablets to be compatible with timesavr and I find that it is a lot slower now and that the invoices won't transfer to quickbooks and that only the one current invoice is printed at a time so families with multiple children don't have all children's fees listed on one invoice

Recommendations to other buyers: It was less slow before the update and I find certain tones of the day it's slower I also don't like how online registration families can activate themselves so they show up on the room list before they are actually registered

Thanks for your review Shannon.

Please note that the server does not slow down during peak times, but your local internet connection may if you're using a cable internet service such as Shaw cable since their technology forces an entire neighbourhood to share a single pipe which means your internet can slow down during peak times. DSL (such as Telus) technology does not suffer from this limitation.

A recent update also included improvements to the new invoice page for families which means all charges are now included on the same invoice. I hope that addresses the concern you mention regarding invoices.

Also, you should be able to import all transactions into QuickBooks as before. Please contact me directly if you're having problems with this feature by emailing me at support@timesavr.net.

And new online registrations are automatically added to the "unconfirmed" list and can only be made active by the system administrator. Parents do not have the ability to do this.

It is not easy to use on iPhone , very frustrating .

Pros: Nothing really . I'd rather do things on paper so I know it's correct . The changes made are not human error , the program changes things I've written . It can be quick and easy , but often it changes things and I don't catch the errors until the end of the month when they can't pay me cause I have wacky hours submitted .

Cons: I cannot add or delete clients without calling the office , it changes hours to pm . Hard to use for before after school care as it thinks 3-5 is am and not pm . Not very easy to use on iPhone .

Vendor Response

by Kwiksol Corporation on January 15, 2018

Thank you for your review Sylvia. I'm sorry to hear it's not easy to use on an iPhone, but it is designed for a large screen. However a mobile app is in development and this should work much better for you. The Android version is now in testing and an iPhone version will be released as soon as possible following that. In the meantime I suggest you use a laptop or desktop computer. It will be a much better experience for you.

Just to clarify, the reason you can't add or delete clients without calling the agency office is because your dayhome agency controls your security privileges and they've decided not to give you that privilege. The system is after all an agency tool, as they are paying for the system.

As for entering your hours, if you do not specify am or pm, the system will assume am every time. If you need it to be pm you have to enter in pm. Unfortunately it can't read your mind. :-)

Pros: Everything is in one place and it was created for daycares and our unique needs!

Overall: I've been using this online system for years, it has every feature I need to successfully run my daycare, preschool and schoolage program. You can do everything with it- sign in staff and children; keep track of administrative records, including notification when one is about to expire; any and all reports you need in regards to children, staff, families and fees. While you can export into Quickbooks from it, you could also just invoice directly out of the Timesavr program. My favourite feature is the online registration- it generates a link that I have on my website (or that I can email) which puts all of the information directly into the system...I just confirm the enrolment and it's good to go! If I have a question, I just email or call and get assistance immediately. This program truly lives up to its name!

Recommendations to other buyers: The initial set up can take a bit of time due to having to manually enter everyone into the system, but if you take it as an opportunity to update your files, you can send the link for online registration to your families and get them to fill it out and then you just need to activate each one- it will cut your data entry greatly and lesson the possibility of typos.

Pros: Easy to use

Overall: Please bring back when the child's birthday is with balloons on the day of so we are aware

Have timesavr by the minute not by 15 minute interval

When you click out (all) it doesn't work anymore so you have to click out one by one

Emails having all the emails under reports again where you can click all and send a mass email to all people instead of having to go through and copy each email one by one

Recommendations to other buyers: n/a

by Kwiksol Corporation on July 11, 2017

HI Katelyn. Thanks for your review. Please note that the birthday balloons are still there, but there is a setting to disable it. Please check your settings to make sure it is enabled. It can also be restricted by security profiles, so if you're not logged in as administrator you may not see it depending on your security profile.

Time rounding is also a setting which you can control, so you can choose 1 minute if you prefer. Please check your settings.

The sign in/out all buttons should be working. Please contact me at support@timesavr.net if you're having problems with this feature.

The email feature is also still there but it has been moved out of reports, into the families menu. Please check the top of your families menu, and let me know if you're still having problems. Thank you!

Pros: That most of what i need to do day by day is in one system

Cons: Some of the reporting is diffiicult as it does not spilt between prorgams (ie i want to know outstanding balances for just Daycare, or just Pre-school).

Turning general reports into excells would be a great option.

Overall: First of all the Vincent at support has been fabulous, always being available for whenever i have a question. The online help tool is very helpfull also.

I unfortunately we work with a system that is not chrome compatible which make some pages, and ease of flipping through pages and reporting a bit teedious.

Recommendations to other buyers: Improvements as per my "cons" would be appreciated. Also an option to skip between families but staying on the Financial page would be great.

Vendor Response

by Kwiksol Corporation on July 11, 2017

Hi Jacqui. Thanks for your review.

Please note that you can stay on the financials page when switching between families. Just select a new family from the main Families menu and TimeSavr will remember which page you were on.

I also appreciate the feedback about the reports, although you can export data in Excel format (admin / tools / export) I understand that may not be exactly what you're looking for.

Pros: Easy to use and get around, convenient, and is not a hassle for my clients.

Cons: The only problem I have come across is on absent days or changing to absent that the save button does not come up unless you enter some numbers and then delete them.

Overall: We have been using timesavr for a while now and I really prefer it to having to do paper forms. It's easy to get a clear idea what contacts and rates you have, putting days off in, keeping track of the kids times of arrival and departures, and changes are easy to make when necessary. The only hiccup I have come across is that if you have a day where everyone is absent or make a change that doesn't require you to fill in times (a child changes to being absent) the save button does not come up unless you enter some numbers and have to then delete them. Over all I love the program though!

Pros: It keeps track of my hours.

Cons: It is not user friendly.

Overall: I use timesavr on my smart phone. This is the most convenient method, since it is mobile and I am a busy day home provider taking care of six young children. There is no mobile site or app for timesaver. When I zoom in on the screen, often on the whole screen goes blank. Then I have to zoom out and work with tiny print. When filling in the times for check in and check out, The keyboard format is very inconvenient. It would be much easier if I could have a scrolling clock. I appreciated that timesaver is helpful for keeping track of hours for organizing each child's individual information. But as a day home user I have found it quite inconvenient.

Recommendations to other buyers: I would be very excited to see a mobile site or an app developed that would provide ease of use for this software.

Pros: ease of use

everything else is well managed using this software.

Overall: We started using the software without any training!!! the ease of use and the just the ideal structure of the website has made the transition easy for us. The name Time Saver is a self explanatory and for us it has been the most important value, allowing us to allocate our time to improve our business and have clear transparency.

Recommendations to other buyers: we believe using this software will be extremely beneficial for all child cares independent of their size. just to have the ability to reduce paper work and have access to required documents of child its a great benefit. let alone the functionalities of wait list and many other things that eliminates the loss of documents.

Pros: easy to use, efficient and effective to manage children and staff

it has cut down my claims time by a full day!

Cons: sometimes slow to load and doesn't fill the whole screen (not sure if its software or tablet)

Overall: As an administrator, using timesavr on my laptop, I love it!! it is easy and fast, there are tools I have not even found yet. The staff use it on a tablet, I'm not sure if it is the tablet, the internet or the program that is lagging and sometimes they cannot get on right away or have to tap the child in several times before it acknowledges it. We are all using it daily now and a few staff have it on their phones as well. I have always had fast and effective customer service and technical support. This is a fantastic program!

Recommendations to other buyers: make it more user friendly for tablets

Vendor Response

by Kwiksol Corporation on July 11, 2017

Thank you for your review Irene.

Please note that you can collapse the main menu to give you a bit more screen real estate on tablets, and also a mobile app is in development for TimeSavr which should be ready by late summer 2017 and that will obviously be designed for small screens and should solve your problem.

Pros: Easy of attendance

it calculates the numbers for us

Cons: Doesn't allow us to change the ages for the child subsidy. Grade 1's are showing up in the kinder numbers because of age.

Overall: Timesavr has saved us about 20 hours a month give or take on admin hours. With the fact that timesavr calculates the hours for us, it saves us from spending hours adding up child and staff hours. We don't have to create child attendance or write them in anymore. Its all at the click of a button.

by Kwiksol Corporation on February 08, 2017

Thanks for your review Janine. Just FYI, your description of the grade 1s mixing with kinders can likely be solved if you use the "Attending grade 1 to 6" checkbox on the child profile. This distinguishes them from kinders.

Pros: Easy to use

More features than the average centre would need - but all are extremely helpful and not just excess

Amazing customer service

Cons: WiFi and Internet dependant - this caused a setback when attempting to implement it into room usage

Overall: Have been using timesavr in our centre for a few years now. It provides us with quality dat a entry, easy to use interface, and is quite flexible based on needs.

Has a few glitches (as expected with any program), but the customer service and assistance level is far beyond what would be expected. Highly recommended to any childcare centre looking for a database program for their business.

Recommendations to other buyers: Keep up the good work.

Pros: The convenience of getting the staff/children hours, being able to see how many children are signed in and having quick access to family files when we need to call a parent.

Cons: Sometimes it is difficult to find information but the tech support is very fast and supportive.

Overall: I would be lost without this program! We used to do the hours of staff and children monthly and it would take hours, but this program saves me a great deal of time. Like they say "Time is Money!" I would recommend it for all programs.

Recommendations to other buyers: Everyone should make the investment in this program - it is well worth it.

Cons: I would like Volunteers to be featured in a different section on the dashboard instead of included with the employees.

Overall: Timesavr is a great tool! It has saved us so much time preparing reports. Invoices and receipts for families are easily printed and very professional looking. Quick questions from customer service are responded to quite quickly. Unfortunately concerns of greater detail can be met with resistance. As a paying customer I would recommend receiving follow up emails/calls to ensure the software has been fixed and is still running smoothly for customers. Perhaps meeting with clients to see if there are some functions we would like to see in the next update.

With a lot of more expensive products out there on the market, this one certainly answers the need for an affordable software that offers some tools to simplify daycare and out of school care administration.

Hi Mariya. Thanks for your review. Please note that you can restrict staff access by using security profiles.

Go to admin / security / users to create a new user for your staff to log in with. Then also create a new security profile that limits the features they have access to and assign that security profile to the new staff user you created.

Easy to update emergency contacts, make notes, etc. Convenient to use on my smarthphone or tablet as sign in/out does not always happen at my home. Portable emergency records without having to carry a paper copy is wonderful. Seems to make billing much more straight forward for our agency staff. Thanks

Comments: We went from using paper attendance to the app for attendance and I find the paper attendance much better over all. I'm used to using time waster now as it's been a year yet it bothers me often as it freezes often and I sign out and sign back in again and it's not looking so professional in front of day home parents when I do that. Some times it takes me five times of pressing the in or out for it to realize what I'm wanting it to do. When I zoom in to be able to press the in or out or abs buttons etc very accurately the whole screen goes blank and I need to zoom back out again and scroll up and down to get the child list back. I used to be able to view the whole line on the first page where it says my name and emails address what my pay would be that month after the agency calculated my hours etc but now I can't see the whole line no matter what I try. I do use my iPhone for it as my computer is not an apple brand and I don't want to have my computer in my day home area so I do use my iPhone for the app. It's just so quirky and not all visible I have to redo many things and often in front of parents so they can also see I sign in and out their children right at drop off or pick up time so I just feel it's not looking professional. The parents have started to make a joke of it now which is not a good thing really. I didn't want to answer the first email about giving feedback but got a second one now so I thought I'd tell You the truth as my intent is that you can improve it some how. I hope my being honest helps you.

Thank you for your review Shohreh. Sorry to hear you're finding the system slow, but I can assure you that the system is very fast, which is why I'm wondering if maybe your local network or your computer are slow? Please email me with more specifics on where you're experiencing a slowdown and I'll try to help you eliminate that problem.

Pros: Accessing reports

Cons: Sometimes when inputting times manually (iPad) there are problems with scrolling down and inputting data

Overall: Having changed from paper time sheets to timesavr I really see an improvement, no more adding up hours. I love that I can see reports at the touch of a button as this helps with many things, but mostly at tax time when I need to find out hours for the year etc.

Pros: The ease of staying on top of administrative records.

Cons: When adding new contacts to child records, the previous contact has to be totally erased first.

Overall: TimeSavr really streamlined our Administrative process. The reports are fantastic. Gone are the days of continually pulling files to check for expired administrative records or to copy child files.

Pros: The reports feature and child profiles make tracking and billing easy.

Cons: The cost is quite high for a small non-profit centre per month.

Overall: We have been using TimeSavr for a little over a year, and we find that it is easy to use, offers a lot of functionality, and allows easy billing and emailing. The only downsides to the program are that licensing is not a fan of the attendance feature, due to the fact that attendance can be retroactively changed, and the sign in/out features are easy to bump, making accurate attendance harder than on paper.

Pros: keeping daily records is a breeze

Cons: I need a monthly report showing days in care, full or part day, for each child, so I can figure meals to expense. It would be nice to have one page for all the children, not one for each child to print out.

Overall: I find using TimeSavr great compared to keeping a paper record. It's easy to go back and print out reports. I could see a year end report being added somehow for each individual child showing days in care, but other than that it's a great way to keep track of my children in care.

Cons: It seems more daycare oriented than dayhome friendly BUT changes we suggest are often applied to make it more dayhome friendly.

Overall: We started using Timesavr about 2 years ago. It has made record keeping, communication, and organization at our dayhome agency far more effective. We cannot say enough about Vince (the software developer) and his responsiveness to our questions, concerns and suggestions. We've been very happy with the decision to use Timesavr.

1) An App so that it ease of function on an Ipad is easier

2) An email function so that parents can update their registration forms every 6 months, as per licensing requiremnts

3) On the tax receipts, a place to put a job title and signature for the director. As this is something that the tax receipts require

Absolutely LOVE everything else. Thank you.

I do sometimes find it a pain to have me enter a time and then it automatically puts in the current time but I am used to checking that I have caught it so there are no mistakes.

Hi Nichole. Thanks for your review. If you click the IN or OUT buttons it certainly knows if it's am or pm and enters in the current time. If you're typing in the time manually then the system can't know what time you want to type. Feel free to call or email support if you have any questions or further feedback.

It's quick to learn, easy to use, and truly is a tremendous time saver. If there is ever a need for assistance, they are so quick to help, it's quite impressive and so very appreciated. To anyone that isn't using it yet, do yourself and your company a huge favour and get started right away.

Overall: It's a perfectly fine program just not user friendly on an iPad. I find it difficult to enter numbers and am pm on the iPad so I still have to use paper time sheets until I can get to the computer.

Comments: Overall, Timesavr is a great program. Once we learn all of the ins and out of the program it will really save us a lot of time. There were some strange quirks in the beginning but after consultation with our contact person, they are quickly fixed and we are able to move forward.

Overall: I enjoy being able to see my childrens total hours, my own hours and fix timings with ease. But sometimes trying to find certain profiles, or enter data is a confusing trail.

Recommendations to other buyers: Take time to practise and figure it out.

Pros: -user friendly

-excellent tech support

-intuitive to use

Cons: -speed of software, especially during peak times

-unable to use filters as it slows program too much

Overall: I have used TimeSavr in both childcare programs (daycare and out of school care) and have found it to be extremely user-friendly. Signing children in and out, tracking payments, moving children between rooms, updating child information, and many other things are easy and intuitive. Tech support is helpful and always responds promptly. We have had a number of issues with the speed of the program, however, especially during peak times. Since turning off filters, this issue has been resolved, but in the time before we knew that, the software was essentially unusable due to lag time and general speed. Overall - excellent software, but rendered useless by speed issues. Since being resolved, very happy with it!

Recommendations to other buyers: -turn off filters to speed up!

Comments: Timesavr is awesome for ratios! However, it is often slow, lagging, and doesn't refresh often. Its really annoying to change from AM to PM if you make a mistake. It takes me several minutes to sign in and all the children as well.

It is a good website though, it could be improved by becoming an app though!!

Vendor Response

Thank you for your review Emmalee. I can assure you that the TimeSavr server is very fast and any lag you may experience will be due to either your connection or the processing power of your computer. There is quite a bit of javascript happening in the browser so if your computer is old that may be an issue.

As for your app idea I'm happy to report that an app is in the works and will be released very soon. The app will have limited functionality but it will be great for tracking attendance, staff time sheets and finding family contact information.

Comments: From iPhone I cannot save username or password and have to play around with pressing different headings before I can hit the log in and sign in. I have to do alot of double clicking before it will let me mark a child in or out or absent. It is time consuming that way and won't stay open. I have to sign in each time numerously through day. But it is better than paper sign in for sure. Overall use is still more convenient.

Thanks for your review Dana.

Please note that the site is designed for a full screen device and is not a mobile app. You may want to consider using a laptop or tablet.

Having said that, a recent update has resolved the zooming issue that I'm sure you've experienced so I hope that will improve your experience on your phone. Also, a mobile app is in the early stages of development and should be released later this year.

Pros: It works for Alberta.

Cons: Tax Receipts should have business number on it and a place for the director to sign. Also, we need to provide a receipt for each child in the same family - this program does not give this only one total for the family.

Overall: This program gives the ease to use between a day care and OSC. The developer has thought of everything. The customer service is great, email or call. This is a program for Alberta - works with licencing regulations, subsidy - keeps track of balances, easy use of EFT. Great program over all

I used it as an educator and as an administration member

Comments: Complete and useful program overall

1- Online registration: we should be able to add our own particularities (consent form, etc)

2- Private information such as staff information should not be accessible to everyone (by using a password to get in when clicking on your name?)

3- Parents should put their child in and out on a separate home page- so they don't have access to private information

Vendor Response

by Kwiksol Corporation on September 09, 2015

Thanks for your review Rosalie! Just to be clear, you can add custom fields to your online registration form. And staff and other information can be kept private by creating secondary user logins with restricted access. Parents should never have to see anybody else's private information.

Cons: He should build a software team and make some of the adjustments requested in order to compete with other national providers of software or client requests

Overall: We started using this software from a review we found online when we had one centre. We have worked with the support staff for the past several years and have pointed out bugs and he has been very quick to fix them. We now have 7 centres and continue to use it. The software is fantastic if you live in Alberta as it work with the provincial regulations. He has been a pleasure to work with and has accommodated some of our requests and needs

Pros: Child sign in feature, staff sign in, automatically adds up hours for claim forms, parent registration option.

Cons: The way the child sign in is now shown as a scrollable table within the website. It does not perform as well like that.

Overall: I've been using Timesavr for several years now. I have found that it drastically reduces the length of time I spent manually calculating child and staff hours and it has made it so our portable records are all digital now (no need to print them any more). Customer support has been amazing!

Recommendations to other buyers: It will save you loads of time!

Comments: We use timesavr in our daycare program of 80 families. Each feature is exactly what we need to track attendance, information, fees and submit Alberta child care subsidy. The only downside is that timesavrs server is very slow. We used it to track attendance using tablets in the classrooms and gave up because it took up too much time for the educators. At the end of the month the server was so bogged down we often couldn't access it. From an administration side it is perfect for printing attendance forms, portable records, emailing parents so if that's what you are looking for I highly recommend it

Comments: Timesavr is a fantastic software. It definitely cuts back on my time to calculate hours and track charges. It is very user friendly with inputting information.

When it comes to setting up for charges, tasks, etc it does take a bit to find the specific area that you need to set up charges, but that is like any sort of software. But once you've done it, its pretty easy to find and edit in the future.

For child care programs, this is an awesome software to be using. It's an easy click for in/out/absent for the staff or even parents if you are getting them to sign out their children.

Comments: We use Timesavr for our daycare and after school care programs. We track our children's hours as well as staff, and use the financial aspects for all our invoices and receipts. We like that it is a very throughout program we can use to create our portable records and can email items to the parents (like receipts) creating less paper waste. The program creator is always available to walk us through any issue we come across and is open to suggestions for items to add, when we have a situation he had not come across yet.

We have used TimeSavr for a little over one year for our registration, signin/out and child records

Comments: Vince is very responsive to questions and solving occasional challenges - that is so refreshing and extremely helpful! For the functions we use, TimeSavr is excellent. We appreciate the continuous upgrades - most of which we use!

We would like to use the HR function for keeping track of our employee vacation, flex days etc. but need additional features in order to do that. We do keep track of our training and certifications but being able to track PTO would be very valuable to us.

Keep up the good work Vince! We appreciate it!
