Kidsoft and Storypark announce new partnership, launch deeper integration
Childcare and early learning software provider Kidsoft has confirmed the launch of a new, deeper integration with Storypark, the early childhood education and care sector’s leading pedagogical documentation and parent engagement platform.
The launch of the new integration marks the end of a period of extensive consultation and feedback gathering from Kidsoft’s customer base which collectively signalled that a deeper integration with Storypark’s platform would not only save on administrative and data entry tasks but also ensure educators and families had the very best documentation and engagement tools on the market.
Commenting, Kidsoft CEO Di Girvin said, “We are so excited to be able to launch this deeper integration with Storypark. The Storypark platform is one of a kind and to take our partnership to the next level means alot to us and will certainly help our users to more effectively support their educators and families.”
Commenting, Storypark Co-Founder and Co-CEO Peter Dixon said, “Our partnership with Kidsoft is now in its sixth year and we are proud to launch this deeper integration in service to our shared customers and the ECEC sector. We’re working to help streamline workflows for educators so they can make even more of a difference for the children and families they support.”
The new iteration, which launched on 9 December 2020, will allow the software to talk to each other – automatically setting up and maintaining a child’s information in each system, creating “source of truth” from which all Storypark accounts are created, not only saving time for educators but also ensuring the integrity of data across all systems.
As well as providing users with a seamless experience the set process has been engineered to be as simple as possible with an initial step that connects a Kidsoft account to its Storypark equivalent through an API which ensures that all current and new enrolments are automatically uploaded into Storypark.
From there educators and families can engage with their Storypark platforms completely comfortable that the information contained within them is 100% accurate.
“At Kidsoft we are firmly committed to leveraging our “best of breed” platform solutions by offering our customers the choice to choose which programs and applications they wish to integrate. As our stable of integration partners continues to grow, so does our ability to provide our customers with the solutions that suit their specific needs.”
The launch has also coincided with a new promotion whereby as a certified Kidsoft partner Storypark is offering Kidsoft customers that currently do not use Storypark, 3 months free Storypark access.
