Crocodile is an online platform and smartphone app for schools and parents to facilitate the organisation of walking buses
to school To engage the children, the app enables gamification through reward schemes for pupils, classes or year groups.
Crocodile will also create useful analytics for schools, helping them understand trends in walking bus activities.
Our solution aims to promote confidence in parents. It will deliver a positive confirmation of arrival and a secure approach
to digitised personal details. Importantly, Crocodile is designed to make it simple for busy parents to book their child
onto a bus. As parents ourselves, we understand how busy parents' lives can be.
Reduced car travel means environmental benefits, and an active start to the day ensures health benefits and increases
social interaction between children. The final benefit is in education – research has shown that children who walk, scoot
or cycle to school arrive more alert and ready to learn.
Application development notice
Crocodile App has been through two pilots, and is currently in redevelopment to conform to the data protection rights
guaranteed by GDPR. As a result, we are taking a break from piloting and returning to a cycle of development. We will
make an announcement through the website when we are ready for our next batch of pilots.
We are excited to bring you the next iteration of the platform when it's ready, in the meantime if you want more info please follow our social media, or sign up for our newsletter.
All About Team Crocodile...
The idea from this app was born out of the
Green Capital Digital Challenge and has grown a lot since then. We are 5 individuals, all IT/digital professionals
and the majority of us are in the web and marketing space along with one team member who is a Sustainability expert helping
organisations improve environmental and social impact.
We're trying, in some small part, to tackle a problem that affects most people at some stage in their lives - getting
their kids to school. We're promoting a way to get kids who would normally be driven, yawning and groggy, to walk or
cycle to school with a group of friends and arrive bright eyed and alert. We're aiming big too - there's no reason this
can't be applied nationwide or even worldwide. We're excited, and we'd like you to come along on our journey
