FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
New App Makes the Sitting Process Easier for both Parents and Sitters
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (February 20, 2017) – ZipSit, a mobile app that changes the way families and sitters connect, schedule and transact with each other, launched in the greater Scottsdale and Phoenix metropolitan area. The free app provides a modern solution for a quick and reliable way to find and book trusted sitters, as well as for sitters looking for an easy way to increase business and manage communication with families via their smartphones. Unlike similar services, ZipSit does not charge monthly fees or booking fees and is free to download and use. The app also includes SitScore, a brand new feature utilizing AI, which was developed to give parents an unbiased assessment of a sitter outside of traditional “star ratings.”
Not only does ZipSit allow parents to connect, schedule, and manage payment with existing and new sitters, but the app also allows sitters to expand the network of parents for whom they sit. Parents can search trusted sitters in their area and immediately connect with them, or request an interview before adding them to their favorites. Parents can also connect with their friends through the app to see their favorite sitters.
As there are inherent flaws in the traditional rating process, including biases created due to personal relationships between sitters and parents, SitScore seeks to provide impartial consistency when evaluating a ZipSitter. SitScore awards ZipSitters for positive actions to give users a better insight into the ZipSitter’s experience and performance.
“We are thrilled to lead the mobile sitting revolution,” said Peter Helms, CEO and Founder of ZipSit. “We look forward to bringing on-demand sitting to families everywhere and making the sitting process easier from start to finish.”
ZipSit can be used anywhere in the United States, including areas that do not yet have available sitters. The app can be used to manage families’ existing sitters or connect with friends’ sitters. ZipSit is free to download and is available in the Apple App Store.
