Care.com, Inc. (NYSE: CRCM), the world's largest online care destination for finding and managing family care, today announced financial results for the first quarter ended on March 29, 2014.

Investments in integrated products and marketing contributed to accelerated payments growth, with 40% of new payments signups via Care.com.

“The start of the year represents one of the peaks in our business as more families look to put care solutions in place for their children, seniors, and homes, and then head into tax season,” said Sheila Lirio Marcelo, Founder and CEO of Care.com. “Our results for the first quarter demonstrate the powerful cross-sell synergies of our platform and the high-ROI potential of our combined core services of US consumer matching and payments. The breadth and scope of our services continues to attract families and caregivers to our platform while also providing a foundation for enhanced offerings designed to enrich the member experience.”
