BookJane provides professional, on-demand childcare, adult care, and senior care throughout GTA and national rollout starting this fall.
TORONTO, Sept. 26, 2016 /CNW/ - It's a stressful reality for many people, especially families: caring for aging parents and young children, while maintaining a demanding career at the same time. Plans may change at the last minute, the usual caregiver isn't available, or you might just need a night off. That's where BookJane comes in. An up and coming tech company in the caregiving industry, BookJane saw the need for quick access to trusted caregivers at a moment's notice, and created the technology necessary to satisfy it.
The BookJane Mission: Convenience for All
BookJane's mission is to improve people's lives by simplifying the caregiving process for both clients and caregivers. Instead of spending time and effort searching for qualified caregivers, vetting them, negotiating price and working out schedules, clients can quickly search for an ideal match with the BookJane app. BookJane also provides many opportunities for caregivers who might have trouble connecting with clients using traditional methods. In a nutshell, the BookJane app makes it easier for everyone involved.
"Through BookJane caregiving is made easy. We are already seeing the impact we have on people's' lives." – Curtis Khan, Founder and CEO
BookJane only hires certified professionals—people who have gone to school and received training in caring for others. BookJane's caregivers go through a multi-step screening process, including background checks, reference checks, manual checks of certificates, and more. In addition, all caregivers undergo ongoing training to ensure that they're trustworthy, competent, and fully committed to BookJane's mission. BookJane offers flexible work environment to caregivers by giving them the flexibility to decide where and when they want to work. We are giving caregivers the opportunity to earn additional income and with our technology we are changing the way caregivers work in the future.
About the App
The BookJane mobile app is currently free and available for download on iOS and Android. New customers can register in minutes and immediately begin searching for the ideal caregiver. Customers can filter BookJane's large database (over 2000 caregivers!) into categories: type of care needed, level of education, availability, languages spoken, years of experience, and much more. For a streamlined experience, customers can interview prospective caregivers through the in-app chat feature. Location tracking is available through the app to ensure caregivers are en route to the booking and that they remain on site for the duration of the agreed-upon times. For added convenience, customers can set up automatic payments through the app. Since the app's launch in July 2016, BookJane has achieved dramatic success. "We plan to be the #1 on-demand care application in North America, and we work hard every day to make that a reality," shared Curtis Khan.
