Carepass Launches Android Version of its On-Demand Child Care App

New app will support continued growth of user base and attract more parents to flexible, on-demand care

PR Newswire

MIAMI, July 19, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Carepass, a mobile platform offering families on-demand access to a vetted network of licensed child care centers, today announced the launch of the Android version of its groundbreaking app. The release of the Android app increases families' access to Carepass' trusted child care network and represents another milestone on Carepass' path to building a national, always-on network for flexible and backup care.

The Android app joins the company's already-existing iPhone and web applications, which connect unused capacity at licensed child care centers with parents seeking safe, flexible and affordable child care. In so doing, Carepass lets parents effortlessly find, reserve and pay for high-quality care by the week, day or hour, while giving care providers a turnkey revenue stream and marketing platform. As of today, more than 30 licensed child care centers throughout South Florida are registered on Carepass, with more in the pipeline.

"From day one, our vision for Carepass was for it to be mobile-first" said Tony Hill, founder and CEO of Carepass. "So, with two out of three smartphones in the U.S. running on Android, we are absolutely ecstatic to, literally overnight, be able to serve so many more families – especially during summer time, a perennially challenging time of the year for parents and care providers alike."

The Carepass app makes the otherwise tedious process of finding safe and reliable backup child care effortless. Families just need to specify when, for how long, and for whom they need care, and the app will display detailed profiles of matching child care centers that are available to host their children. Once parents find a center they like, they can book a visit directly from the app. After that, they just need to drop off and pick up their child(ren) at the designated times. There's no need to handle money. Payment takes place via the app automatically at pick-up.

Today also marks the release of version 1.3 of the Carepass iPhone app, which, in addition to numerous performance improvements, now has a significantly more powerful and intuitive search capability.
