Kidzapp, an app-based platform designed to help parents and caregivers find and book family-friendly activities and events, has launched in Canada.
The app, which has been operating in the United Arab Emirates and Egypt since 2017, already has more than 300,000 downloads and has enabled more than three-million activity bookings. It offers details on close to 1,000 experiences in Canada, with new ones added each week.
The search tool makes it easy to look up what’s happening by keyword, date, activity type, seasonal event, age category, and even by location with a handy map function that shows you what’s happening nearby. The embedded reviews section also helps parents find that top ranking trampoline park, the best birthday party venues, or that five-star coding course.
“At Kidzapp, we believe that small businesses are unique in their ability to serve the region and we aim to work closely with family-oriented companies in the community to help them grow by informing people about what they have to offer,” says Founder and CEO Karim Beidas. “Our hope is to contribute to the creation of a sense of community where individuals and families are encouraged to give back.”
Within the Kidzapp platform, partners are able to provide just in time offers, deals, and other packages in order to maximize bookings and reach. They also have access to a transparent financial system that enables them to assess the effectiveness of marketing campaigns launched via the app.
“At Kidz At Play, we’re really excited about working with Kidzapp and expanding our customer reach, while improving the convenience of the booking process for prospective visitors,” says says Shaun Doolarchan, Co-Founder. “This unique app gives us an opportunity to stretch our marketing dollars and to leverage the financial infrastructure that this app and its platform provides while maintaining the option to have dual bookings systems.”
While Kidzapp in Canada has initiated its presence in Ontario,the company plans to expand to additional markets over the coming months.
