Nimble technology for an evolving ECEC ecosystem
Technology is a foundational component of TCC Solutions. Built with the purpose to support early childhood education and care (ECEC) agencies, providers, caregivers, families and children, our technology platforms reflect our dedication to anticipating and exceeding the demands of an ever-evolving landscape. Together with our services, we provide comprehensive solutions to streamline processes, reduce data silos, strengthen accountability and meet federal reporting requirements.
TCC Solutions developed Ascend based on decades of experience serving state and local ECEC agencies. Ascend is a tightly integrated ECEC data system built on a flexible modular platform, allowing for deployment of selected or all modules needed to manage and support providers, caregivers, families and children. It has been deployed successfully across multiple states for many years. In addition to offering the latest security and hosting features, Ascend provides robust reporting capabilities to inform data-driven policy decisions and meet federal reporting requirements.

TCC Solutions developed eXpedite specifically to support the child care inspection process. eXpedite is an offline electronic mobile forms solution that digitizes and pre-populates client forms and checklists. Child care licensing inspectors document the inspection process, including summary of noncompliances and electronic signatures. Inspection data can be captured both online and offline and securely transmitted to Ascend via active wireless connection. Once transmission is complete, further processing and necessary action may be taken in Ascend.
Together, eXpedite and Ascend are a powerful combination of technologies that fully support and integrate the licensing management process with the inspection process.
