Launched in 2018 with the vision to re-imagine the way families and family law professionals communicate around the world, SmartCoparent is the new full-featured co-parenting platform developed for families, kids, family attorneys and courts to reduce a wide range of co-parenting conflicts and complications, increase collaboration, restore order and regain peace of mind. Below is our recent interview with Gregory Wagner, the Founder and CEO at SmartCoparent:
Q: Can you give us insights into your features?
A: SmartCoparent is a modern solution to the frantic back and forth e-mails, texts and phone calls, associated with raising families in different homes. Our features include a complete shared calendar portal, chat messaging (and chat transcripts), private journal, storing, sharing important documents, contacts and event negotiating, sharing, paying and tracking support payment expenses, all on-line.
Q: How would you convince the reader to start using SmartCoparent application?
A: SmartCoparent is designed for almost any co-parenting relationship imaginable. Most of the features are free (calendar, chat, private journal, limited expenses and support payment request). So, users can download the app and try it out without making a financial commitment. Unless you want to, you never have to upgrade to our Premium plan, which includes on-line support payments, chat transcripts, budget tools, Google / Outlook calendar sync, and more. Our ‘Forever Free’ plan contains more features than other legacy apps that charge $99 per adult, per year.
SmartCoparent is also child friendly designed with restricted functions (calendar and chat only) for kids.
Q: Can you provide some real word use-cases of your application?
A: As a founder, single dad, and Certified Divorce Financial Analyst (CDFA), I use SmartCoparent every day to manage my visitation schedule, document my interactions with family (through chat transcripts and private journal), check on my kids allergies, pediatrician contact details and even clothing sizes (through the vitals/contacts function), store important docs and track every support payment I send. Personally, it is an indispensible tool that solves a real, personal need of my own. SmartCoparent keeps me organized, on time and on budget, while reducing a number of back and forth texts / e-mails.
Q: What are your plans for the future?
A: We are launching a complete digital ecosystem involving Artificial Intelligence capabilities that will allow family courts, attorneys and other professionals to have a more efficient on-line relationship with co-parents. This will be particularly useful for high-conflict divorce cases, where robust monitoring of non-compliant, and abusive co-parenting relationships is needed.
We believe the #familytech industry will consolidate over the next 18 months as these newer, better-valued application continue to erode rigid, expensive legacy models. SmartCoparent intends on leading this industry by changing co-parenting lives through simple to use, advanced, forward thinking digital experiences.
