Tame the Chaos of a Busy Family Schedule
Any parent will say that keeping track of family tasks, events, and chores is a full-time job. Calroo makes it easy. You can schedule events, hand off tasks, sync grocery lists, and get reminders all within a single app. No need to call or text to confirm: everyone in the family is always on the same page.
The Calroo App is Just the Beginning
Initially, we're focused on solving the collaboration and coordination problem for families because every family struggles with it, every single day. We ourselves got tired of having to use five different apps, plus texting, calling and emailing just to get through every day. But solving the collaboration problem is just the beginning.
We will then leverage our platform to create custom apps for specific family segments – for example divorced parents. (If you think it's hard to coordinate your schedule with your spouse, try doing it with your ex!). Our next app is called WeParent, and we plan to launch it in October. If you are a divorced or separated parent and want to join our beta, please reach out. We'd love your feedback!
In the next phase, we will open our APIs to other developers so that they can build their apps without having to recreate basic things like family profile and identity, calendaring, messaging, etc. Think of it as a Google sign-on, but for families. This way, when your family starts using a new app or service, you don't have to re-enter the same information (like ages and genders of your kids) over and over again. Importantly, you will always maintain full control over how your family's data are used at a very granular level.
Our ultimate goal is to become a new discovery platform for family-oriented apps and services. Some of these apps will be built by us, others by third-party developers who are using our APIs. We will curate the apps and recommend them to consumers based on their unique family profile. We want to help families discover apps that they "never knew they always wanted." We want every mom, dad, and caregiver to say: finally, here's a platform built just for me. We want everyone to feel supported in their role as a parent, spouse, caregiver and family member. Join us!
Our Pitch Deck
Experts explain how Calroo helps parents.
"Calroo has taken communication about the family calendar and tasks to a new level. Calroo lets teens take personal responsibility for things and check them off when they are done. So valuable!"
"Let’s be honest, if you have a couple kids in multiple activities and a partner who also works full-time, sometimes it feels like running your family is more work than running your organization."
"I love that I get an explicit confirmation that another family member accepted the handoff, so that I can rest easy knowing that my son will get picked up from soccer practice."
" Calroo helps you remember who is doing what, when and where — and if you have a bunch of kids in different activities, reminders make your life a whole lot easier. "
