DIGIKIDS is a franchise for a business producing children’s safety ID’s. It was founded in 2003 and started franchising in 2004. It took them two years to formulate the information needed on the safety ID.
They consulted with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC), law enforcement agencies, and other organizations for child advocacies. They designed the safety ID card to make it easy for parents to provide the most crucial information to the authorities in cases that their child is missing. They also save the information in a business card sized CD as suggested by the NCMEC so that it could easily be passed on digitally. They patented the NDB2 Technology which ensures the parents that your child’s information is not submitted to a database. Every card is created in just two minutes in their portable studio.
What are the details written on the child safety ID?
It should have the child’s hair color, eye color, height, weight, age, and date of birth. Additional information should include descriptive identifiers like contact lenses or eyeglasses, pierced ears, braces on teeth, and other physical attributes that are unique. They also suggest that you add information on your child’s allergies or any health concerns.
What makes this industry successful?
It has been reported that 2,200 children are lost or missing each day in the United States. The law enforcement agencies said that the first 20 minutes is the most crucial time in finding these children. Often, parents panic and tend to forget a lot of important things. Having a child safety ID makes it quick and easier for both the parents and the authorities. The CD with the child’s information would cut the time even shorter for them to be able to distribute the information. What is even more to the franchisees favour is that these ID’s need to be updated yearly. That means more returning customers. It also gives the parents a peace of mind that they don’t need to go anywhere to process the ID. Everything will be done in front of them in just two minutes.
