Before the introduction of the "Bus Catch" system
The safety of children has always been a top priority in the management of the preschools and the development of the system.
Before the introduction of the "preschool support system + Bus Catch", several systems were introduced.
・A mail system was introduced about 10 years ago. After that, a bus location confirmation system and a system for managing children and their arrival/departure from school were introduced.
The reason for the introduction of "Bus Catch
The reason for introduction】・ Different systems were introduced for different operations, but even with the systems in place, they were not very efficient.
Parents said it was difficult to understand because they had to look at several applications.
We were wondering if we could do something with one system, so we were introduced to a kindergarten director who was close to us.
In May 2022, we had a meeting with VISH Corporation, and in June, we signed a contract with them.
Effects of the introduction of the system
(1) The system allows teachers to schedule their shifts earlier because they can know in advance the status of reservations for daycare. 2.
(2) The registered absence notification times show that many of them are registered on the previous day, which has the advantage of allowing parents to contact their children at their convenience.
(3) The "contact book" function allows the entire preschool to share information that could only be grasped by the homeroom teacher.
4. the letters are now distributed by e-mail in PDF format. This has been very helpful in reducing the workload of the teachers and making the system paperless. 5.
The e-mail function is used on a daily basis. The email function is used on a daily basis, and the template registration function is utilized so that urgent messages can be immediately sent out via email. 6.
6. the "supplies order" function, which is used daily for the sale of uniforms and tools, is also used for the sale of meal tickets for the PTA bazaar. It was easy to use.
The system can be adapted to the school.
The system is easy to use, and we can set up certain functions ourselves. It is very easy to use because we can adapt the system to our school, rather than having to adapt the system to us. For example, we can set up the pattern of daycare, create the content of the questionnaires, and so on, quite freely. It's great that when we want to do something, we can do it ourselves."
