Payroll-as-a-Service Startup Check Announces Partnership with Procare
Check, the payroll-as-a-service startup whose mission is to make paying people simple, today announced a partnership with Procare Solutions, the leading child care management software platform. Together, Check and Procare will improve the way that child care centers are able to pay their teams.

Procare is a leader in the child care industry and is uniquely positioned to meet the needs of this community. That's why we're thrilled to be partnering with Procare to bring integrated payroll solutions to child care centers, taking one of the most time-consuming processes that a business performs off their plate.

- Andrew Brown, CEO and co-founder of Check.

This partnership, which will enable Procare to fully integrate payroll capabilities into its platform, comes at a critical time for the child care industry. As providers of in-person services, child care centers were hit hard from the beginning of the pandemic and have struggled through the continued waves of the coronavirus. While child care center administrators have consistently wanted improved payroll for several years, the pandemic and resulting fewer resources accelerated the acute need to simplify the payroll process. By partnering with Check, Procare will be able to build a more automated, easy-to-use payroll product for child care centers across the country.

We're proud to support child care centers by making their day-to-day operations easier and soon, that will include a payroll solution built directly into our software. We frequently hear from customers that they want to simplify paying their teams, and Check was the perfect partner for delivering on this mandate, enabling us to offer a one-stop-shop for our customers' operational and administrative needs. We're excited to integrate Check's technology into our platform to help us provide a child care-specific and efficient payroll offering, so our customers can get back to providing quality care to children.

- JoAnn Kintzel, Procare CEO.

Procare plans to offer Check's integrated payroll experience in early 2022.

EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT

Survey: Digital Workplace Key to Engagement for Frontline Teams

YOOBIC | March 18, 2021

NEW YORK, March. 18, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Frontline workers aren’t being given the digital tools they need to succeed, leading to disengagement and reduced productivity, according to an international survey of frontline workers published today by digital workplace innovator YOOBIC. A smarter and more connected approach, using mobile devices and enterprise-grade apps, could be the key to achieving operational excellence, refocusing frontline employees on core revenue-driving activities, and attracting and retaining young workers. Mobile and deskless workers now make up 80% of the global workforce, totaling over 2.7 billion people, but the majority of digital workplace solutions still focus on supporting deskbound employees. In fact, according to the YOOBIC survey, fewer than six in 10 frontline workers currently use mobile devices as part of their jobs, and 73% of frontline employees are still using paper forms, despite 71% saying that easier access to digital tools would make them more productive. The failure to empower workers with suitable digital tech takes a direct toll on mobile teams’ morale and productivity, the survey shows. More than a third of frontline employees now say they feel disconnected from their HQ, and over three quarters say their sense of engagement would be significantly improved by relatively modest connectivity measures such as mobile access to corporate communications messages. With employees almost five times more likely to perform well when they feel their voices heard, lack of connectivity is a serious problem for today’s deskless workforce, the survey shows. Frontline employees don’t just make, distribute and sell the products we consume — they deliver a brand’s purpose and promise, and create value that differentiates the brand from its competitors. By making those workers more productive, organizations free up their time for impactful work such as helping customers, improving quality, and managing critical projects. The absence of appropriate digital tools directly impacts employees’ career growth, with 40% of frontline employees saying they receive training no more than once per year, even though seven out of 10 employees would welcome access to mobile, app-based learning solutions. That contributes to a sense of stagnation that’s especially trying for younger workers, with over a third of Millennials — who now make up three quarters of frontline workers — saying they feel unfulfilled in their roles. Frontline teams are the engine of our economy, but they’re sorely underserved by organizations that fail to invest in new digital technologies,” says Fabrice Haiat, CEO of YOOBIC. “YOOBIC customers who integrate mobile apps into their deskless employees’ workflows are realizing significant gains in operational excellence, customer experience, and sales.” The YOOBIC survey, conducted in December 2020, interviewed 1,000 frontline workers from the UK, US and Canada, across industries including retail, hospitality, manufacturing, and construction. About YOOBIC YOOBIC is an all-in-one digital workplace for frontline teams. Our mobile app gives business leaders and frontline teams the performance tools they need to work, learn and communicate - all in one place.
