Does Zum have an app?

Available for iPhone and Android phones, this application will be used by service providers such as drivers, caregivers, and babysitters to track and deliver childcare jobs assigned to them through the Zum technology platform.


Zum is a pretty easy gig to start, but it won’t make you rich, despite what all the radio and television commercials told us a few years ago. After considering all operational costs, almost anything else you can think of trying would pay more!

With that said, driving Zum might be a good option for someone in a temporary cash crisis and not worried about the long-term impacts on their transportation budget.
