5 High-Impact Ways to Use Your Multi-Center Childcare Data

Mastering the balance between growth and profitability isn’t for the faint of heart. And without unified data across all locations, it's easy to lose control as you grow.

Why Streamline Your Data?

Terms like “data-driven decision-making” haven’t traditionally been a part of the early education lexicon, according to our annual benchmark survey, reporting on performance is now an important business challenge for 53% of childcare organizations.

Make Data-Informed Decisions

As a childcare business leader, every choice you make has an impact on your brand. But how often do you find yourself making decisions based on anecdotes instead of evidence?  

Even now, in an age marked by its influx of technology and mass data accessibility, research shows that 74% of corporate leaders still see themselves as inadequately data-driven. When systems are siloed- it often requires administrators and educators to fill in the gaps and perform manual tasks, leaving ECE leaders with little to no real-time insight into key metrics.

Whether you’re looking for ways to improve your enrollment conversions, bolster retention, plan capacity across multiple locations, or forecast your annual profits, streamlined data tells you everything you need to know as you grow.

Execute Faster

Who doesn’t love the idea of having clean data at their fingertips?

Unfortunately, nearly a third of childcare businesses say reporting on business performance is one of the tasks that takes their teams the most time. And more than half have multiple team members interacting with families from the very start of their enrollment journey.

Over time, this can lead to fragmented data and a poor family experience.

For faster, better decision-making across centers and teams, start by centralizing your multi-site data.

Reduce Costs Associated With Decision Making

In the age of big data, decision complexity has increased by 65%. And that complexity increases even further with every new center you open.

Each new location you add may already have its own data system, governance and scalability challenges. But with a configurable, unified platform like LineLeader, you can empower your staff to access the data they need with just one login.

Here are some of the ways a centralized data hub can help you improve and accelerate your decision-making:

  1. Easy system integrations:

    With a separate CRM, CMS, and parent app, staff members have to switch back and forth between systems, resulting in missing information and gaps in your data. But with deep two-way integrations, it’s easy to help team members avoid manual entry errors and keep family records accurate across all systems.

  2. Consistent data governance:

    Not every team member needs access to every detail. Customized User Permissions let you create, manage, and update data access individually or in bulk to quickly streamline permissions across multiple locations

  3. Automated reporting:

    This may mean building your custom reports, then pre-scheduling them in your CRM or CMS to send out to key stakeholders on a weekly, monthly, or quarterly basis.
