Words from the founder
『A gift for my baby girl』
What does itofoo mean?
The name "itofoo" came from my wife, which means "love" and "entrust" in Chinese.
The origin of itofoo
In September 2013, my first daughter was born. When she was about 7 months old, as most parents do nowadays, we sent her to a daycare center, and it didn't take long before I noticed several drawbacks of communication book:
Difficult to share.
In paper form, it's rather hard to share anything with grandparents who live very far away.
Paperwork takes so much time.
The more time teachers spend on repetitious paperwork, the less time they spend with my child.
Where are my photos and videos?
Teachers at daycare take pictures and record videos on a daily basis, but they didn't have the time to put them in sharable order. 1 to 2 months seemed too long a wait.
They got me thinking: why not go paperless?
It will save time, money and stroage space for daycare, which means more time for my child. The data will (finally) be useful if I could turn them into reports, and make them searchable at all times!
Say hello to the world, itofoo!
