Temporary Childcare Solutions, Only One Click Away

Temporary Childcare Solutions, Only One Click Away

Our reliance on the internet is no new story with modern day society now dependent on Google, Wikipedia, Trade Me, Facebook, Twitter etc for recommendations, answers, purchases, and social networking. Mothers rely on the internet for researching a number of topics related to childcare and parenting and the demand for online solutions is quickly growing. A poll by parenting website found 63 percent of online mothers now use social media networks such as Facebook regularly, compared to only 11 percent three years ago. It found 44 percent use social media for recommendations on which brands and products to buy with little difference between mothers of different ages.

Mothers turn to the internet when needing fast answers and solutions and an Auckland based company called KiwiOz Childcare has developed a unique online booking system for temporary nannies. Director of KiwiOz Nannies Lisa Bentley states “Our clients are mostly working professionals and 80% of the Mothers we assist are working either full time or part time. Quite often the support that they need is not permanent or long term but last minute short term bookings and we quickly realised we needed an easy online solution for these type of women”.

The business has tailored a service that offers an online temporary booking service which allows parents to complete an online form with their personal details & job requirements and then a consultant contacts them within 4 hours with booking options. “Once a client has used our temporary nanny service for 2 – 3 bookings they become comfortable with our service and confident that we provide the same high calibre of nanny for every booking and so the booking process becomes strictly online and via email allowing our busy clients to solve childcare needs without any fuss or time spent on the phone. The clients receive only one invoice which includes the nanny’s hourly rate, agency booking fee & GST and can be paid via credit card making the whole process online, fast, and efficient”.

The pace everyone is now working is increasing and with so many multi-tasking mothers back in the workforce having a quick, reliable one stop shop for temporary childcare has proved very popular. “The amount of repeat bookings coming through has documented how sought after this service has been here in Auckland” says Bentley.
