Technology has reimagined the hire market in recent years, with the internet giving niche ideas a worldwide platform to market on. This week, we have witnessed yet another hire innovation. This comes in the shape of a new app; one called Bubble. Built to support parents in particular, the app partners those looking for babysitters with an endless pool of appropriate sitters.
The app was first introduced in London. Now having proof of concept, the app has made its way to Bath. Seeing over 100 cities sign up for the app; the site is currently being made use of by over 30,000 parents and babysitters. Enjoying such huge user numbers, we at Anything for Hire were eager to take a look. Pleased by what we were presented with, this app is certainly destined for worldwide adoption.
So, how does it all work? Well, according to its creators, the app relies on social and community data to make effective connections. In addition, it provides a platform for parents to read reviews before parting with any money. And, before a babysitter’s profile goes live, Bubble conduct background and security checks, giving users a limitless pool of vetted sitters that they can have confidence in.
Already seeing many signups in Bath, many parents are completely blown away by just how good this app is.
Local Entrepreneur, Ari Last, said:
“As parents, we know that when it comes to finding a brilliant babysitter for our kids, nothing is as powerful as a personal connection or recommendation.
“Our aim with Bubble is to make finding trusted childcare – anytime, anywhere – an easy and fun experience.”
“What’s really excited us is that it’s not just helping parents with their social lives, but with their work lives too.
