About the client

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

Birdie is an on-demand childcare app that allows parents to find top-quality, pre-screened sitters that align with their needs and schedule.

Flexible scheduling is provided for both singular sessions whenever needed and recurring bookings over longer duration. And with a thorough vetting process, parents can trust that these sitters and bookings will provide childcare of the highest standards.
