Did you know that by 2022 consumers are expected to download 258.2 billion mobile apps! Mobile apps certainly seem to make the world go around these days, but how many of these apps are really making a tangible difference to the lives of their users?
The Kiddo App is an innovative and easy-to-use fintech app, which helps parents discover the best development programs for their children and was created with a singular motivation; to address the gap in the education sector, especially for SMEs. Kiddo has vowed to change the way the region searches for, engages with and pays for educational services, with the ultimate goal of changing the face of education forever.
Given the penetration of mobile in the region and a market size of AED45bn , there has been no mobile payment solution created for the education sector and its customers. Nor has a platform existed that caters to the need for credibility, convenience and choice for parents when it comes to making education (curricular and extra-curricular) decisions.
The Kiddo App, is a one-stop shop connecting parents with a variety of educational service providers, other parents within the community looking for similar activities as well as a host of relevant offers and special experiences. However, it is the KiddoPay concept that really puts Kiddo on the map.
KiddoPay is a unique one-stop payment solution, that allows providers and parents to connect and pay at the click of a button. KiddoPay brings real added value to both parents and providers by giving accessibility to all genres of educational offerings, to all types of parents and income levels, in one place. Marrying a whole spectrum of education providers with the right audiences, ensures added value to each and every stakeholder across the proposition chain, meaning that children will have access to the right learning opportunities – empowering every parent and enabling every child.
Aarti Shah, Founder of The Kiddo App says ‘Kiddo was created to make a difference within the education sector and within our communities. There are about 1 million children at school age in the UAE, and globally this number stands at over 1.3 billion. Our purpose is to ensure every child gets the right development and learning opportunity, by creating a chain that connects everyone within the education ecosystem in a way that ensures value and ease for all parties. By ensuring accessibility and ease of payment for education we believe we will be able to revolutionise the education system and open up more educational opportunities for the children of the UAE’.
