What We Do

Staff88 helps child care providers to operate more profitable and quality programs with our two cloud-based solutions: Labor Management and Sub-Share Network.

Our labor management flagship tool, IRiS (Intelligent Resource iScheduler), automates the staff scheduling and labor management process. IRiS optimizes staff scheduling by avoiding overstaffed and minimizing understaffed situations, thus reducing labor cost, while staying in compliance.

Sub-Share Network is our online platform that allows child care providers to easily access affordable subs and to screen/recruit high quality staff.

Labor Management

Optimal staff scheduling, the most critical and the complex component of child care labor management is being handled by IRiS (Intelligent Resource iScheduler).

IRiS gathers children's fluctuating schedules, availability of staff, scheduling rules, licensing ratio, classroom’s schedule order preferences, staff absence/time off, overtime, break time, plus other parameters, and then apply our intelligent scheduling logic to produce an optimized proposed work schedule. This computation and processing can’t be easily done with Excel or the typical human brain.

Mobile App: XpressCount

Staff88 offers a handy mobile app, XpressCount, designed to take a quick (express) real-time head count of children and staff at the center throughout the day.

Instead of using a clipboard, you can have your designated staff do a walk through quick count with a mobile device.

As soon as the staff is done with the count, within seconds, your center's head count and ratio status (overstaffed or understaffed) will be available for you to review and make immediate staff scheduling decisions at anytime, anywhere.

XpressCount is available for download:


  • Save Time

    Enter all the required data once. IRiS does all the thinking for you and proposes an optimal schedule. IRiS can perform optimal scheduling in few seconds that used to take few hours.
  • Reduce Cost

    IRiS predictive and proactive approach to controlling overtime and overstaffed help to eliminate unnecessary cost over run, thus reducing labor costs.
  • Complete Control

    Look at the detailed schedule at every 15 minute interval in a simple visual view and have complete control over the staff schedule.
  • Happier Staff

    With IRiS, scheduling is less emotional and more consistent. Less scheduling conflicts, staff getting their shifts and time-off requests well ahead of time, all leads to more satisfied staff and a higher quality program.

Sub-Share Network

Our Sub-Share Network allows child care providers to easily find reliable and cost effective substitutes as well as to hire quality permanent staff. There are two types of Sub-Share Network: Public and Private.

A Public network is formed by a group of independent childcare providers, in the same geographical area, to manage and share subs. A Private network is setup by multi-site childcare providers for internal use within their own organization.


  • Easy Booking

    Whenever a provider needs a sub to cover, she can easily search and book a sub online from the Sub-Share Network.
  • Try-Before-You-Permanently Hire

    The Sub-Share Network allows providers to try a potential hire as a sub first before hiring her/him as a permanent staff member. This approach will help you make better informed hiring decisions. In the event the sub is not a good fit, there is no emotional stress of termination.
  • Enthusiastic Subs

    Subs can manage and set their own schedule and availability. In addition, subs have the opportunity to experience different styles of programs, philosophies and curriculum of providers within the network. This will help the sub to find the center that is the right fit for them for full time work.
