Functionality


We started to develop a Coordinator visit calendar, and we ended up with a complete Family Day Care service management application.

With the constant battle between cost and quality we have created a system based on what a Family Day Care service needs, not a re-purposed or generic system, but one made just for our sector. The functions below are just the beginning, FDSee will continue to evolve based on real user feedback – so if you have suggestions for enhancements, just let us know.


FDSee Mobile


Calendar

Provides Coordinators and Managers at a glance with the visits in a given period, coupled with visit planning.

Educator Notes & Reports

A real time running record of Safety Audits, Visit Reports and Notes related to individual Educators.

Educator Details

Each Educator has their own page where Coordination Unit staff can access all relevant current and historical information.

Resource Management

All resources are logged and can be allocated to individual Educators, with reminders for return dates and notes on condition.

Recruitment

A customisable Recruitment Check List (with Action List) is provided, along with Initial Safety Audit and Educator ‘Pending’ status.

Request for Care

Log and prioritise Requests for Care as they come in ‘live’ in the system, cross check with vacancies and refer or wait-list with Educators.

Educator Vacancy Search

With Educator Vacancies stored in the system, search by suburb, surrounding areas and types of care to find child care places in seconds.

Reminders

Input the required visit frequency by Educator to be reminded of due visit dates, coupled with expiring certificates or custom reminders.


 

Family Day Care – Coordinated


Management

Total real time visibility of the whole service and Coordinator activity from any internet connected device, including the ability for geo-tracking for Coordinator safety and security.
Vacancies, Requests for Care and Wait-Listing can be maintained in real time, with all staff having immediate access for Parent or Educator enquires.
A real time dashboard means Managers have complete visibility of all expiring certificates and reminders, overdue visits and Coordinator efficiency.
Resources can now be easily managed and allocated to Educators, with reminders when they are due back.

Coordination

Whether you allocate one Coordinator to a group of Educators, or share them around, FDSee enables coordination of visits and consistency of information in real-time. Private notes can be left relevant to each Educator which means that no issues can be overlooked between visits and Coordinators. Any open ‘Actions’ are also automatically brought forward to each new report until completed.

In addition, visits that fall on a day where the Educator is not working, either outside their Standard Care Hours or using the ‘Care Exceptions’ feature, are flagged and can be moved if required.

Mobility

FDSee can be accessed from your iPad, which means that Coordinators can go through their reports in the Educator’s homes, either finalising them on the spot, or saving a draft for later. Pictures can be included in the reports, either from historical images, or taken on the spot. Any updates are saved in real time back to the office and vice-versa, meaning that information is always up to date. The interactive mapping feature enables efficient planning of visits which minimises travel time.

Even out of the office Coordinators have access in seconds to all historical information, reports, certification and vacancies – it’s like having all your files with you constantly.

Customisation

We know there is no ‘one size fits all’ for Family Day Care services. That’s why we built in the feature that allows each service to customise the main aspects of their reports and forms.

As with the functions to add users, roles and responsibilities, this is something that Managers can do through the administration section of the application. You can even change the titles for your staff based on how your Service is organised.

There are no hidden fees for set-up or customisation.
