BERKELEY, Calif. – November 29, 2018 – Curacubby, a leading provider of simplified student enrollment, automated billing and easy online payment solutions, today announced that the International Child Resources Institute (ICRI), a non-profit international organization whose mission is to improve the lives of children and families around the world, has adopted its cloud-based integrated billing and payments system. ICRI, which works to provide quality early childhood care and education, child health and related programs and give communities access to the resources necessary to overcome poverty, chose Curacubby as a replacement for its legacy, disparate systems approach which resulted in countless hours each month in billing, collections, and reconciliation for its corporate staff.
Based in Berkeley, California, and working in more than 60 countries, ICRI was previously constrained by manual billing and payment processing, while also relying on paper checks for payment to avoid costly credit card processing fees. ICRI now manages billing processes for its preschools through Curacubby’s unified cloud-based system, saving ICRI staff approximately 30 hours per month and greatly reducing any cost associated with payment processing.
“Our vision is to create a world where all children and families are able to fulfill their greatest potential,” said Ken Jaffe, Founder and Global Director for ICRI. “Having a cumbersome, time-intensive billing and payments process added the heavy burden of extra work each month for our staff, taking away hours that could otherwise be used to further our cause. With Curacubby’s solution, we have reduced the workload to far less hours per week and can continue to focus on expanding and improving our operations. The Curacubby team has been nothing short of fantastic, and we are grateful for the efficiencies the solution provides and the high quality service and support we continue to receive.”
“Early childhood education centers, no matter how large or how small, have challenges with their cumbersome billing and processing systems,” said Steven Khuong, Co-founder and CEO of Curacubby. “As a former parent-cofounder of a preschool, I set out to bring simplicity and efficiency to this process by giving schools a tool that automates and manages the entire billing process, handles enrollment and enables better communication with parents, saving them time and money and eliminating the headaches stemming from piles of paperwork. When our integrated platform brings such relief to an organization like ICRI, we know we are contributing to something meaningful in the world.”
