About the client

Birdie Break is an Edmonton-based company founded by two close friends who recognized the need for a reliable and efficient avenue to short-term childcare bookings.

Birdie Break originally launched scheduling childcare bookings through their website in July 2017. Birdie Break worked with Punchcard to help expand their business and make their business processes work, all on mobile.

The solution

Birdie Break is an on-demand childcare app that allows parents to find top-quality, pre-screened sitters and tutors for a given date and time, review them, chat with them, book them and conveniently pay for them.

Birdie is for parents, both men and women, who struggle to find quality, short-term childcare. Birdie families are moderately affluent individuals who consider adult-time a priority and seek the flexibility our service offers through Real Time bookings.
