    This tool has provided our Childcare Directors with a much more comprehensive program than the old paper-pencil ledger system. It has saved time for them and our department by providing easy access to information for routine requests from parents and our Business Office. Needless to say, I am very pleased with Fee Management!

    Skyward products have made my life easier. We used to put in hours of overtime getting ready for the start of the school year. But using Skywards employment management, salary negotiations and payroll, in conjunction with each other has made overtime a thing of the past.

    Skyward’s Salary Negotiations and Employee Management software are so user friendly and very powerful for running different reports.

    I feel the entry process of adding new employees has become easier and friendlier with Skyward. We enter a lot of new employees at the beginning of the year and the process has expedited the entry process along with importing of info from one screen to another. Accessing this info and making changes has been a plus too!
