Introducing our Tutorial demonstration business...

During this Tutorial, we use a fictional pet sitting business to demonstrate a "real world" scenario of how a business that was new to Pet Sitter Plus might set up their system. The following information gives a brief description of how the business is set up and what they want from Pet Sitter Plus.

About Dogz and Catz Pet Sitting LLC

 

  • Dogz and Catz Pet Sitting are a small, but rapidly expanding pet sitting business based in Jacksonville, Florida.

  • They offer dog walking and home visits, but want to add more services in the future.

  • There is one owner – Tammy Gates – who runs the administrative side of the business, as well as covering pet sitting when she needs to.

  • Tammy has grown the business to 2 full-time and 1 part-time sitters. One of her full-time sitters is at senior grade, and the others are juniors.

  • She currently uses a manual system of spreadsheets and emails for scheduling and raising invoices, and keeps a written diary of everyone's appointments and how much she has to pay her staff.

  • She dreads the administrative side of the business and feels it is getting out of control, with missed appointments and incorrect charges being invoiced.

 

Summary

 

  • Tammy is looking for a user-friendly system that will handle all her scheduling, invoicing and payroll. It would be even better if her staff could use it and also allow her clients to go online and schedule their walks.
