User-friendly Technology

Walkers use our proprietary app to access daily schedule, visit information, and to document the visit through photos and creative visit reports for our clients.

Reliable Support

Skiptown has a unique operations team that is available throughout the day to support and assist with any issues our walkers encounter.
