Creating Abundance in Idaho with Department of Health & Welfare and IdahoSTARS

The Idaho Department of Health & Welfare is dedicated to strengthening the health, safety, and independence of Idahoans. Many companies partner with them in an effort to make this statement a reality. IdahoSTARS is one of those partners. IdahoSTARS (Idaho Association for the Education of Young Children) has a vision that all children thrive wherever they grow and learn. 

How We Helped

IdahoSTARS relied heavily on paper-based systems to complete coaching, training, licensing, and record keeping for childcare providers. This resulted in a slow turn-around time–ranging from weeks to months–for childcare providers to get licensed.

In Time Tec created a web-based approach that is easier to access, easier to use, more intuitive, and more reliable. It consolidates the data in one place for robust, dynamic reporting that is consistent for every process. It also gives the users access and control of their own data.
