INM is building SOSsitter’s new application for the iPhone

Integration New Media, Inc. (INM), a leader in building engaging digital experiences, announced today that the company has been chosen by SOSsitter to develop its new iPhone application. SOSsitter, also known as SOSgarde in French, is the go-to site for parents looking for local babysitter or nanny services across Canada.

SOSsitter has a robust database of mom-reviewed sitter profiles that members can tap into on an as-needed basis. The database includes listings for local babysitters, nannies, senior caregivers, and pet sitters. Site members have unlimited access to search and can easily pull up profiles of sitters that include a photo, detailed personal info, a summary of experience, references, parents’ reviews and more. Members can also find a contact and perform a background check, then contact sitters directly tochoose the best option for their needs.

“INM approached me about creating a mobile application to accompany my site,” said Paulina Podgorska, founder of SOSsitter. “This was a project that I wanted to tackle for some time but did not have the bandwidth to do so. INM brought some great ideas to the table and helped me get started right away.”

The free mobile application will provide parents on-the-go with the ability to quickly and easily search for local babysitters and nannies where and when they wish. The application enables parents to search and view customized profiles that are designed for quick scanning and easy information digestion. They can then directly reach out by phone or email to prospective sitters right from the application.

“For this application, we looked at the most important functionalities on the site and adapted them for use on a mobile device,” said Raluca Ene, creative director at INM. “With this type of audience, busy multi-tasking parents, we wanted to design an application that made searching for a local sitter easy and intuitive, providing easy-to-scan profiles for parents to quickly read.”

The application will be available in Q4 2011 from the Apple App Store.
