247babysits has developed a babysitting app for Parents & Sitters on iPhone, Android & Web which will aim to provide the ability to book a trusted & certified sitter, at any time with just 1 click of a button. Parents will only pay for the number of hours they require a sitter.
A babysitting service aiming to target the modern day parent, caring for all ages of children, from babies to teenagers.
247babysits has built an app on iPhone, Android & Website to be released imminently, which aims to allow customers to book a babysitter in real-time, 24/7. The app has been built to provide a simple booking process, allowing last minute and repeat bookings, a planner to review bookings and live chat to speak with the sitter. 247babysits aims to offer a service charging no registration, subscription or booking fees. Our goal is that all babysitters will be interviewed, CRB/DBS & First-Aid checked. 247babysits will also implement 2-way reviews, allowing feedback from the customer and sitter for every booking, creating a loyal babysitting circle.
