Circle in Family, an app to make life easier for families

The lockdown has given rise to new needs and sharpened the ingenuity of many. It also happened to Ottavia Borellalawyer specializing in family law, ed Elena Rivano, communications consultant, creators of the Circle in Family application. In a historical moment in which women want to get out of the pivot role around which the whole family axis rotates, this app can be a tool that helps to no longer place them alone at the heart of family management.

“The idea was born during the lockdown – explained Borella – when the courts slowed down the response to the needs of families and I identified the issues that generate conflict in the couple. Then it was decided to try to create a market survey with a series of questions and I set myself the goal of verifying the needs that, in my profession, I was breathing mostly in the pathologies of families. This market investigation, made on a sample of 350 familiesgave very positive responses and allowed us to identify needs that matched the functionality of the app we had in mind ”.

Circle in Family therefore gives support to the family, allowing you to create and share information of different kinds: a calendar for keep an eye on appointments of all the components, accounting and money management (a particularly useful function for larger households, where parents have to contribute to the expenses of their children), photo albums, documents and organization of meals, from the menu to grocery shopping. In short: “Circle in Family is an answer to working parents with children who have a lot of commitments a week. The app helps the organization, the part that requires the most effort and time, and reduces its complexity. And it is also a corporate welfare product, because management can create inefficiencies at work ”.
