Electronic signatures

Electronic signature - Attendance record

A practical, secure, and legal solution

Using the ACCEO Childcare Services software, childcare centres can now send attendance records to our Tiempo Web application, so parents can sign documents electronically. The Electronic Signatures option will continue to evolve over the coming months to add this functionality to several more documents in the software.

Electronic signature is a fast, secure, and legal way to sign documents. The Ministère de la Famille has approved electronic signature as a legal and valid method under section 123 of the Educational Childcare Act (Règlement sur les services de garde éducatifs à l’enfance [RSGEE]). It’s a simple and ecological solution that saves you time.

How does it work?

1 – Transmitting documents to parents

Select documents

The childcare centre selects the files of the children whose attendance sheets require signature. Both parents can receive the document, which can then be signed by one of them.

Transfer to Tiempo

The documents are sent to parents on the Tiempo application. As soon as the first document is sent, the parent is notified by email and can proceed with the creation of his Tiempo account.

Automated reminder

It is possible to schedule automated reminders for parents who have documents pending their signature.

2 – Parents’ signature on Tiempo

Email notification

The parent receives an email or text message to notify them that there is a new document to sign on the Tiempo application.

Signature or reject

The parent checks the information in their child’s attendance sheet and either signs to approve or clicks Reject if the information is incorrect.

Consult a document

Parents can consult the attendance sheet at any time in their Tiempo account. They can also download the document in PDF format.

3 – Monitoring signed documents

Synchronization with ACCEO Childcare Services

During the synchronization process, signed documents are updated to the ACCEO Childcare Services software. The childcare centre can check the status of documents: signed, pending, or refused.

Signature authentication

Every signed document produces a unique and individual imprint that serves to authenticate the user’s electronic signature. Information such as name, email address, date, and time of signature is collected.

Document access and backup

Attendance sheets are available in the child’s file. All document backups are stored on our secure servers for a period of 6 years after the child’s departure.
