Johannesburg, South Africa – Parents can finally breathe a sigh of relief as Au Pair Express launches one of the first on demand platform for au pairs and babysitters in South Africa. This online platform gives parents access to prescreened and first-aid trained au pairs and babysitters, giving parents the peace of mind that their little ones are well looked after and secure.
“Parents often find themselves helpless when it comes to finding a reliable person to babysit their children, especially in emergencies such as an urgent meeting or an impromptu social event, or even on a weekend. We designed Au Pair Express to alleviate this pain point, giving parents a simple, yet powerful, tool in their hands that will allow them to access several au pair profiles, request an interview or simply book an au pair to take care of their children in their absence. We understand that the safety of your children comes first and now with Au Pair Express, you can finally feel free to plan other activities in your life knowing that your child will always be in safe and reliable hands,” says Ziyanda Nqebelele, Founder and CEO.
In our fast paced world, temporary child care services still run on personal favours, Au Pair Express bridges this gap by introducing a first of its kind location-based, on-demand platform allowing parents to view au pairs and babysitter profiles in their area, simply through their smartphone.
“We understand that simply looking at a profile may not be enough for parents and they would like to meet an au pair or babysitter in person before they make their decision. For this reason, we also provide an option for parents to interview the potential au pair, before confirming a booking. Once you shortlist a profile and request an interview or confirm a booking, the au pair will arrive at your doorstep for the interview or booking at the requested time. It’s that convenient.” adds Ziyanda.
AuPair Express 1.3 comes in a user-friendly interface and is simple to use. Once a parent shortlists a profile and requests an interview or makes a booking, the au pair gets a notification and can choose to either accept or reject the request. What makes the app really useful is the fact that parents can book the au pair for as much or as little time as required with a minimal booking period of 2 hours. Parents can also book the same babysitter or au pair each time they need extra help, making the service even more convenient.
Ziyanda says, “Our aim is to enrich the lives of our users with this feature rich app. Apart from the convenience of having a reliable babysitter in the nick of time, the app also has a safe and secure integrated payment portal where parents can electronically pay for babysitting and au pair hours as and when they need them,” .
With this innovative parents will have access to au pairs in Johannesburg and Pretoria. Parents can quickly search for reliable, screened and first aid trained au pairs in their area, including full time and part time baby sitters and nannies for weekdays and weekends as well.
