When it comes to kids and the internet, safety and security has to be our number one concern
Boulder, CO (PRWEB) December 9, 2008
etendi.com announced today that it has launched etendi BRIDGE, an easy-to-use, interactive, safe and secure web-based meeting place that bridges the gap when parents and kids can't be together. Developed specifically for non-custodial divorced parents or co-parenting situations, grandparents, military families, or the heavy business traveler, etendi BRIDGE allows family members to stay connected by providing a single place for them to be together online. Features include live video phone calling, shared spaces for photos, videos and documents, personal notes, an interactive white board, and a shared calendar.
etendi BRIDGE leapfrogs existing web-based messaging or video communication tools by providing in one web location everything needed to create a true virtual meeting place. Parents, kids and other family members can be online at the same time and have a video phone call, play games or work on homework together. When they can't be together online, they can create and leave text or video "Thinking of You" messages and use shared web spaces to build custom web pages, photo albums, explore common interests, plan events and build shared memories.
According to Doug Little, V.P. Marketing, "We designed etendi BRIDGE to specifically address the needs and concerns of distance parents and families. Before etendi BRIDGE, a mix of different web-based tools was needed to provide all the features and capabilities parents and kids want. Using these tools together was complex, awkward, time consuming, and required considerable tech savvy. etendi BRIDGE simplifies things, saves time and is available to everyone."
etendi BRIDGE is also a private, subscription-based system under the complete control of the subscriber, parents in most cases. "When it comes to kids and the internet, safety and security has to be our number one concern," according to Mike Mahon, etendi.com President. "With etendi BRIDGE there is no opportunity for external, undesirable content or SPAM to reach the kids," he added.
