Imagine a world where kids’ check-in wasn’t tied to a kiosk, a desktop computer, or any kind of permanent station. What if a volunteer at each door to your church could quickly check-in kids without headache – or long lines. That’s what KidCheck is making possible thanks to their iOS and Android apps that allow tablet check-in through the KidCheck system.
With tablet use on the rise, coupled with the importance of child security, many churches and organizations caring for children are looking for a mobile children’s check-in solution,” said Alex Smith, CEO, KidCheck. “We are thrilled to deliver KidCheck’s mobile check-in app for iPad and tablet devices for Android.”
KidCheck’s mobile check-in platform combines the ease-of-use and security features available in its children’s check-in solution, now with the added flexibility and mobility tablet devices provide. The mobile check-in app provides the additional convenience of allowing volunteers or employees to walk around the facility with a tablet device to quickly and easily check in families.
The benefits of mobile check-in are huge,” continued Smith. “Added flexibility, shorter check-in lines, using volunteers throughout the facility to check families in, an opportunity for a more personal touch with visitors and families, and so much more. Using a tablet device to check families in not only saves time and further streamlines the process, but also helps create a positive first impression for parents and visitors.”
KidCheck’s mobile check-in is as simple as inputting the family’s ten-digit phone number (or using a scannable key tag), choosing the children to check-in, and then directing or walking the family to where their printed child labels and guardian receipt are waiting.
In addition, mobile check-in helps to quickly and easily check-in visitors. Personally greet them at the door, set up their free KidCheck account, add any allergies or notes, and check them into the appropriate class – all directly from the tablet device. Then direct or bring them to where their labels are printed and waiting.
For parents and guardians, KidCheck’s mobile app provides direct access to create and update their KidCheck parent/guardian account profile right on their smartphone, without needing to access a web browser.
According to AJ Mastic, Discipleship Pastor at St. John’s Church and School, “The app is great. It’s simple, easy to use, and looks good. It really helps us process our check-in line faster.”
