Where can I find scheduling and billing software?

by on December 14, 2009

Q: I want to start a tutoring/teaching business. Because I will be selling time slots to students, I need a software package that tracks the amount of time that a student has purchased. It should also monitor the amount of time a student has used, as well as determine the amount of time a student has remaining within a specified period.

I’d like for the software to be able to generate receipts (reports) that detail this information. Also, it would be neat if the software could calculate charge differentials in the event that a student wants to change plans or up grade to a different time/class package. For nights that classes are in session, I want the software to generate class lists of students in attendance once they have been “logged” into the system. If multiple classes exist, I’d like for the software to generate class lists by instructor.

Finally, it would be ideal if the software could be linked to an id card system, whereby students would scan an id card to gain access to the facilities and sign in for classes. Is there a software package available that does all this? Where would I go if I needed someone to design such software if it’s not currently available on the market?

    I have personally never run into any software that will do this out of the box. You are probably looking at something that will have to be custom built for you.
