FRISCO, Texas (PRWEB) March 10, 2006
Matthew and Stacey Pirtle have been awarded the exclusive DIGIKIDS® child ID franchise for the Collin County, Texas area announced Michael J. Childs, president.
DIGIKIDS® offers a Child Safety CD that allows parents to quickly provide law enforcement officials, the media, the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) and other agencies with two high-resolution digital photos along with medical and identifying information to aid in recovery efforts.
“Over the years, we’ve considered a variety of franchise opportunities, but we never found the right fit — we knew we wanted to own our own business, but we didn’t want to take on all the traditional risks, such as meeting a large payroll or managing overhead and receivables,” explained Matthew Pirtle. “”Then we learned about DIGIKIDS®.”
“We felt an immediate connection with the DIGIKIDS® service and people,” Stacey Pirtle added. “We knew this was something we could get excited about, plus DIGIKIDS® offers us more flexibility and satisfaction than any other option we looked into. Now, we’re honored to represent a superior product and service that provides peace of mind for families in our community.”
Offered through schools, preschools, churches, summer camps and other public events, DIGIKIDS® delivers its secure Child ID kits on site in two minutes or less. The cost to enroll each child is only $15.95.
“Matthew and Stacey Pirtle are perfect representatives for DIGIKIDS®, because they are passionate about children, family and community,” said Michael Childs. “The Pirtles enthusiastically endorse and support our services, because they believe in our services. We are proud to welcome them to our fast-growing DIGIKIDS® family of franchisees.”
According to the NCMEC, acting within the first 20 minutes of a child’s disappearance is critical. By using the easily carried business card-sized CD ROM, parents are equipped to distribute pre-formatted flyers and posters, complete with high-resolution photos and last-minute identifying details, anywhere in the world via internet e-mail.
“The electronic delivery to law enforcement officials of a child’s digitized photo can save crucial time, since the chances of safely recovering a child are much greater with the first few hours immediately following a child’s disappearance,” explains John Walsh, founder of NCMEC.
With its patent-pending technology to create each Child Safety CD, DIGIKIDS® offers parents anywhere a secure and efficient tool that can help speed the return of lost or missing children.
Beyond typical child identity programs that provide only an ID card, the DIGIKIDS® CD enables parents to make a speedy and comprehensive worldwide distribution of critical identifying information using any PC with a CD-ROM drive. Each emergency e-mail and attachments are sent through a dedicated, secure network. DIGIKIDS® does not create or maintain a central database, guaranteeing security and privacy.
Headquartered in Fort Worth, Texas, DIGIKIDS® presents and supports its services nationally through independent franchisees. In addition to schools and preschools, DIGIKIDS® ability to produce the Child ID kits on site in 2 minutes or less affords a perfect opportunity for any local business wishing to sponsor a DIGIKIDS® safety event as a vehicle for giving back to the local community or its employees.
