Account Disabling

You have the ability to not allow a certain guardian to check-in should the need arise. Perhaps there are extenuating circumstances or they still owe a fee or there have been issues you simply must address prior to allowing their child to be checked-in. Helpful for when those hopefully rare occasions arise when check-in access needs to be temporarily denied.

Parent Location Tracking

Set up location lists so guardians can denote their location, in addition to the location they are checking their children into. Quickly and easily know where a guardian is should you need them or in case of emergency.

Pager Support

KidCheck is designed to work with existing pager systems to easily associate pager numbers with the checked-in child and guardian. Using the pager information you input, KidCheck will automatically assign a pager number to the child checked in and print it on the check-in label.

As an alternative to often expensive pager systems, KidCheck also utilizes Text Messaging as a means to contact guardians when they are needed.

Bulk Check-Out

Manually complete a group check-out for any children still checked in, rather than using the system's existing automatic midnight check-out process. Provides more control over the check-out process. This can be used to check-out volunteers as well.

Information on Check Out Procedures

Registration Assistant

Use the Registration Assistant to help move parents and guests quickly through the check-in process with a personal touch. Use a tablet or computer to create a complete guardian account for a visitor or a family - before they get to the check-in station.

Custom Branding / Use Your Logo

Custom Branding allows you to customize the KidCheck experience with your logo so your name and brand are prominently displayed to everyone checking-in. Customize the check-in screen, name badges, guardian receipts and reports by displaying your logo.

Customizable Themes

Choose one or multiple images that best fit your organization and the background you wish to show.  Images, logos, kids area visuals - it's your choice.

Event Registration

Simplify event registration for any size event and gather key information prior to check-in. Know ahead of time who is planning to attend so you can plan volunteer to child ratios, assign registrants to locations and run reports to help keep planning organized.

You control registration beginning and end dates, can specify if there is limited capacity (overall and by location), and use custom fields to gather details such as shirt size and buddy requests.  For events that have a cost associated, you can assign a fee, add multi-child discounts, and accept online payments through an integration with PayPal (requires the PayPal Payments Pro service).
