SmartCare Announces Matt Knapp as New CEO

LAS VEGAS, July 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- SmartCare, an innovative child care management software company, is proud to welcome Matt Knapp as its new Chief Executive Officer, effective July 1, 2017. With 15 years experience in the Financial Technology and Education Technology industries, Knapp has a proven track record in rapidly growing annual revenues and organizational innovation. In the fall of 2015, Knapp led the sale of Smart Tuition to Blackbaud for $190M.

"I'm thrilled to join SmartCare at such an exciting time in early education," says Knapp. "I am excited to be a part of a dynamic team that builds cutting-edge software that focuses on both child care centers and parents. The technology SmartCare provides increases safety, convenience and overall peace of mind that millennial parents demand, while equipping single child care centers to large education franchises with the tools to more effectively manage their business."

The market for child care is rapidly changing and these changes are creating opportunities for big business to capitalize on a growing market. More and more parents are moving away from simple child care settings for their children and are now searching for the best educational options. With this major shift in early childhood education, SmartCare's technology platform is poised to address a changing industry.

Unlike legacy desktop offerings still used by most child care centers, SmartCare's dynamic software provides automated billing, payments, classroom management, child and staff scheduling, reporting, and contemporary new ways for parents to receive real-time updates and photos to ensure their child's security and wellbeing. SmartCare is designed for on-the-go families and directors with the entire center and parent experience available on any internet-accessible device. SmartCare's enterprise reporting and benchmarking platform offers an effective means of gathering financial data and monitoring performance across the largest educational franchises.

"Our board worked with Matt for several years as the CEO of Smart Tuition. Now that SmartCare is fully independent of Smart Tuition, and we are thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Matt again. We have seen first-hand how Matt can drive adoption of best-of-breed solutions in the education industry," said Mark Ullman, SmartCare Board Chairman. "Matt can effectively communicate the value SmartCare can add to any child care center, and how multi-location centers can uniquely benefit from this cloud-based solution."
