As any parent will tell you, dropping off a child at a temporary child care facility, whether at a church, retailer, day care center, fitness center, or activity center, involves filling out at least one form using pen and paper. You hand over your information, cross your fingers, and hope that the form is not only securely stored, but easy to find should an emergency pop up. Boise, ID-based KidCheck is looking to change that traditional system with their web-based service that provides secure child check-in for short term childcare providers.
KidCheck allows parents to easily create accounts online and provide contact information for themselves, list their kids, along with any allergy or medical information, and build a list of authorized or unauthorized guardians. When that parent visits a facility that uses KidCheck, their information is immediately made available to that organization without having to fill out paperwork. KidCheck also automatically builds a database of customers for organizations which is dynamically updated anytime a parent makes a change to their account.
The KidCheck team is so confident in their product that they offer a 90 day money back guarantee for companies and organizations that buy the system. Pricing is not bad, either. There is a free edition, and then prices start at $19.99/month for one station (one station is recommended for up to 50 kids), while a station, which looks like a scanner, costs $349.99.
KidCheck is one of our showcased startups at Tech Cocktail Boise on Wednesday, so stop by and meet the team, all of whom are dads.
