Family life is far from being a long, calm river, and it is sometimes difficult for parents to organize their own schedule to reconcile their professional necessities with the needs of the children. Between school and extra-curricular activities, it can add up very quickly and become an exhausting race against the clock.
This is the reason for the startup kidwise Developed an app to ensure regular and occasional driving for children with private drivers available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. kidwise Offers for children from 3 to 18 years old, the services of VTC chauffeurs who have previously met in person to ensure their seriousness and sympathy. In addition, the drivers are parents themselves or have strong experience with children and all have a clean criminal record.
Thus, it is enough for parents to program and order tubes on the application, which give the right to loyalty points. During the first order, each family is assigned a lead driver in order to create a true trusting relationship. Parents can chat with the driver before the first drive. In addition, real-time tracking of the driver’s GPS location allows you to keep a close eye on driving.
