Our mission is to reduce conflict between co-parents.
Our mission is simple and clear, and so is the reasoning behind it. The overwhelming majority of conflict between co-parents centers on poor communication, finances, and custody time. Conflict between the co-parents almost always leads to more tension, anger, and stress in the home, which negatively impacts the children involved. The tools we developed for Co-Parent Hub makes most of the toxic communication between co-parents completely unnecessary by employing concepts like a general ledger, VoIP telephony, and cloud file sharing. Our unique combination of these well-established concepts is where the magic happens. We’ve seen, first hand, that the employment of these tools can produce a much more harmonious environment for the children of co-parents. It’s our sincere desire to help others achieve this same result. With so much conflict in the world, we endeavor to reduce it wherever we can.
Our Origin Story
Co-Parent Hub was conceived by Alex Pelli, a single father of twin daughters. Alex cobbled together a solution that looks quite similar to the Co-Parent Hub solution we have today. Alex had experience with resources that most single parents do not. Specifically, VoIP phone numbers that he’s used in his internet marketing business for years. Because of this, he was able to set up what is now Co-Phone and Co-Text. Having seen how well this worked at keeping both his ex-wife and him informed of what’s going on with his daughters, he then sourced a pre-existing solution to help with the expenses. It wasn’t a perfect fit, but he was able to make it work enough that it removed a major friction point with his co-parent. From the successes (and failures) of this solution, Co-Expense was born.
Over the next 5+ years, this system helped these two co-parents to avoid fights and to better co-parent their daughters. After several interactions with school principals, administrators, doctors offices, and the like, where the third parties were astounded at the idea of a shared phone line being used in this way, Alex knew he needed to share this solution with the rest of the co-parenting world.
The last major piece of the Co-Parent Hub solution is Co-Swap. The idea for this part of CPH has been brewing for a long, long time. Alex has long been frustrated by the complexities of trying to schedule both sides of any given time swaps. Having to figure out when the time could be reciprocated at some future date is time-consuming and complex and often led to having to re-negotiate later on because of changes in the kids’ sporting events or other unforeseen issues. Co-Swap is literally the solution Alex dreamed of for years but finally was able to create as part of Co-Parent Hub.
