“KidCheck is an all-encompassing security solution that gives parents a level of control over key information needed by child care providers,” says Alex Smith, founder and CEO of KidCheck. “Through KidCheck, providers have instant access to contact information, allergy information, who's authorized as a guardian to pick up the child—everything necessary to keep the child safe and secure.”
The technology generates matching security codes between child and parent that are used for a secure check-out. If there's any issue with the child, gym staff can instantly text message the parent, right from the system. If somebody shows up to try to claim the child, KidCheck contains who is authorized or not, and the parent can be immediately notified.
The system is completely digital and cloud-based. Parents and health clubs don’t need extra equipment to use the KidCheck system. All a club needs is an internet connection. The company also provides free training and ongoing support to gym staff using the technology.
Smith says that the product is designed to considerably help limit a club’s liability. “Insurance companies love it when gyms use KidCheck. It's a big part of your legal protection.”
KidCheck data is transferable to other locations, so if a family uses it in one place, they can sign in at another. The same information is available and remains current at any location using KidCheck.
Information is updated in real time, and fully protected by state-of-the-art security systems. “Everything is fully encrypted and protected at the highest level,” says Smith. “In the 10 years we've been in business, we've never had a security breach.”
