About the project
Kinderlime is the ultimate timesaving software for before- and after-school care. It aims to simplify a teacher's life and help parents by empowering their childcare.
With Kinderlime apps, school staff receives the ability to automate and simplify tonnes of paperwork - all necessary documentation, payments, schedules, and contacts collected and processed in the intuitive dashboard. Secondly, parents receive detailed insights about how their children are doing at school, childcare, and camps.
Kinderlime removes every operational burden from the school so parents can do what matters - spending more time with their children. One-stop solution for daycare and after school to save time and money!

Kinderlime website backend
Kinderlime's new website backend allows school staff and parents to seamlessly update or add any data. Users can pick from tens of available actions like children sign-in/sign-out, creating reports, sending SMS or newsletter, checking billing stats, etc.
With the new website backend, Kinderlime made possible the integration with Gusto to simplify payrolls for teachers. Also, such features as Lead CRM and Learning became available. All the gathered data can be explored interconnected via the personal dashboard.
Kinderlime mobile backend
Kinderlime mobile applications for iOS and Android received the new interface and ease of Sign In-Out and posting of Daily Activities. It is compatible with iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Android version 5.0 and up.
With the updates made by Syndicode, Kinderlime mobile apps became as fast as never before.
The client asked Syndicode for help with Kinderlime v.2. The new app version was supposed to receive many improvements and enhancements compared to the initial product.
New scalable API
Syndicode managed to jump into the already existing project and build a new scalable API for mobile and website app versions quickly.
