Why councils love Eequ
Eequ has transformed our ability to monitor bookings and engage with our HAF audience. It has provided a platform that flows easily, is aesthetically pleasing and dispels the myth of clunky booking systems. It has also been very warmly received by our providers and this is thanks to the team’s responsiveness and drive to continually evolve and improve their service.
Our experience of Eequ has been exceptional, the all-round personal support has been outstanding for us, our families and our providers. The ever-growing functionality and reporting features provide us with accurate data to make informed decisions, which supports the growth of our HAF programme
The team at Eequ have been incredible. They have provided 1-to-1 support for parents and providers and have continually developed great new features to tailor the platform to the specific needs of the HAF programme.
Using Eequ was a game changer for us, especially in having an automatic system for checking eligible families. Eequ is also set up to collect data for the purpose of reporting back to the DfE. The Eequ team offer great support for providers and parents using the system, as well as responding to the needs of the Local Authority. Eequ also provides an inclusive process for system development alongside other Local Authorities, allowing us to share our experience, and collaborate.
Eequ has allowed parents to flexibly browse the entire offer from Newham and chose a variety of sessions without having to call individual providers to make their booking. Using Eequ has saved us so many hours in completing data reports, it makes the end of HAF reports so much quicker. It also easily allows parents to cancel bookings, which in turn allows other children access to the spaces.
Eequ has been an invaluable addition to our HAF programme and we have had tons of positive feedback from our providers, especially around improving communications with their attendees. We as a team have particularly found working with Eequ very positive, with support readily available and queries or issues being answered and sorted out extremely quickly even during the busy HAF delivery periods.
