SofterWare offers ProCare Clients an Alternative to Forced Upgrade
SofterWare’s TRADE-UP to EZ-CARE2 promotion provides improved center management software and greater savings.
Horsham, PA, November 9, 2009 – In response to the announcement by Professional Solutions, makers of ProCare Childcare Software, that ProCare clients must pay to upgrade to their long-delayed new version or deal with no-longer supported software, SofterWare has introduced their EZ-CARE2 TRADE-UP promotion. This promotion provides an unprecedented 50% trade-in discount and free data conversion to SofterWare’s more flexible and powerful EZ-CARE2 Center Management Software. ProCare users can receive an even larger 75% discount when they choose EZ-CARE2’s PCI-Compliant and patent-pending suite of tools for online and electronic fee collection.
Doug Schoenberg, CEO of SofterWare, noted: “We’ve been hearing from lots of unhappy ProCare clients who are upset about being required to repurchase the same product again. They are worried about being forced to use new and unproven technology and incurring a large expense — whether they want to or not. We think the rapidly declining “discount” being offered by ProCare for upgrading, and their sudden announcement that the current version of ProCare will no longer be supported, is not the way to show you value your customers.”
Ron Leatherman, product manager for EZ-CARE2, elaborated: “We felt ProCare users deserved a better option and we think upgrading to EZ-CARE2 provides exactly that. Not only are we providing a more generous trade-in program, but all our software enhancements are automatically provided at no extra cost as part of our annual support program. With our TRADE-UP to EZ-CARE2 promotion, ProCare users can receive the same modules they use now, and transfer their data for free. Plus, if they use our payment processing suite of tools to make fee collection easier and more effective, they’ll receive an unbelievable 75% discount!”
Mr. Leatherman also noted, “Every year, we continually invest in significant enhancements, to ensure that EZ-CARE2 continues to be the most advanced administrative system for daycare and school-age program management. Our latest release, which all clients on support received for free, is a huge hit. We’ve also had a tremendous response to our patent-pending Click-to-Pay technology, which enables parents to click a “smart-link” in an emailed invoice and instantly pay online by credit card or e-check. The money is deposited into the center’s bank and posted to the parent’s ledger quickly and easily. Parents can even store their payment account data in a PCI-compliant secure storage, using our new SafeSave™ technology, which makes future payments even easier! Parents just love it, and our clients who use it are absolutely delighted with the time savings.”
