UrbanSitter is a San Francisco-based online service and mobile app that allows parents to search for, book, pay, review, and recommend babysitters and nannies.
“As we scale our business, Evident gives us a seamless and secure way to get the verified information we need, improving the experience and peace of mind of our community of parents and babysitters.”
UrbanSitter needed an automated option to quickly qualify applicants on their platform to replace the manual and semi-automated processes originally put into place. Using 3 different vendors, manually running background checks, and reviewing information proved to cost additional time and money.
Evident automated the UrbanSitter onboarding process, enabling families and sitters to connect quicker. Automatic background checks were put into place, and our single integration point eliminated the need for 3 vendors. Sitters are now able to upload information directly in the Evident app, allowing UrbanSitter to focus on running their business.
First Steps provides a flexible, reliable childcare option curating the connection between passionate care providers and families in need of great help.
“Evident enabled us to automate our verification processes, allowing us to to be more efficient. With Evident’s alerts that let us know when any personal data changes occur, we know we are providing the highest level of trust and safety to our community.”
First Steps conducted a background check every 2 years and a recheck every other year. Manual reviews of background checks made it cumbersome and risky. First Steps would even personally meet the babysitters to vet them and verify their credentials. They wanted to enable the highest level of trust and safety to the community, which proved to be very difficult without an automated system put in place.
Evident automated the process by implementing a policy to ensure that the data remained evergreen. First Steps is now able to have immediate alerts in case of a policy violation, and receives more verified data in order to establish trust with families.

The company started a new business line, providing interesting experiences to people on vacation around the world. There was a need to hook up customers with locals to provide hyper-local non-touristy experiences. The company was able to conduct simple background checks, but did not have a system for advanced validations such as licenses, credentials, qualifications, or insurance information, putting them at risk. After attempting to handle this in-house, the company realized they didn’t have access to the correct data sources and weren’t able to confirm information was authentic.
