Childcare on-line Booking (CoB) system

We've been developing after school club and childcare on-line booking systems since 2011 and have processed bookings in excess of £ 3,000,000 since our first system was launched. The Childcare on-line Booking (CoB) system is an off the shelf version of our hugely successful after schools club booking system and are launching it, ready for the Summer Term in 2016. We're currently working with a wide variety of organisations to build on our experience to ensure the system will cater for a wide variety of childcare, after school and holiday clubs run by district councils, schools and private organisations.

This is what some our users have to say about CoB:

open quote We needed a better solution for the booking and payment of our out of school childcare club so after exploring options online we approached Arymer Software who gave us a trial of their CoB. We were impressed with the trial so decided to go ahead with the CoB (after applying for online payments). The system has worked really well. Parents are now able to make booking online and make payments at the same time, which stops us having to chase outstanding payments. They are able to see what they have booked at any time and update their personal details as things change. Arymer have been fantastic in supporting us with the roll out of the system and any initial teething problems (which you get with a new system) which have now all been resolved. We would definitely use them again in the future if a need arose. close quote

open quote The Ayrmer Software's staff interpreted the schools requirements completely and supported us with advice on areas where we have less experience. Out parents have commented on how user friendly and easy to use the system is and their staff are so responsive when we make an enquiry. I would be happy to recommend Ayrmer Software to any of my colleagues. close quote
