Better child safety. Less busywork.
Quite simply the easiest way to collect the information you need, keep it up to date and appropriately accessible by the people that can make a difference.
No one enjoys filling out forms in triplicate! Parents can fill out our BlueCard in minutes, using forms written in their language, from any device, and at any time. You can print legible, typed copies anytime you like.
Stop chasing after parents for months each year. When a parent updates their BlueCard, their changes are visible to you instantly. We validate and verify contact information and periodically ask parents to reconfirm it, which they can do with just one tap.
Need to confirm address changes? Need a real signature on your cards? No problem. We notify you of changes and keep track of new and old info (i.e. nothing gets deleted) to make it easy for you to confirm changes and enforce your policies while simultaneously having access to the most up-to-date info possible.
See pictures of contacts that parents have authorized for pick-up, allow teachers to share a new number they got from mom with the entire team, and more. With BlueCard you put your safety info into the hands of the people who can make a difference, which makes every kid safer.
Safety forms should be readable -- by everyone. Parents' info shouldn't live in a drawer -- it should follow the child and be used to put protective measures in place for children who are most at-risk. BlueCard is committed to making safety equitable. Because every child matters.
