Pet Care Business Owner Takes on Software Problem
Software System Upgrade Gives Pet Business Owners the Ability to Spend More Time with Pets, Not Paperwork
Pet Professional’s new fully-automated invoicing and billing system helps business owners focus on providing better service to clients; humans and pets alike

CHICAGO, Illinois May 16, 2005 Many pet care business owners start a dog walking or pet sitting company because they can turn their passion for animal welfare and their love of pets into a profitable venture. However, these entrepreneurs may find that as their company continues to grow, administrative concerns such as scheduling and accounting become more difficult to manage, thus making it hard to keep up with the exacting needs of their customers. The Pet Professional software application continues to help its users alleviate these administrative burdens and now, with its fully-automated invoicing and billing system upgrade, Pet Pro handles it all. Therefore, with the simple, intuitive and relevant administrative software system, pet care professionals can have more time to enjoy the benefits of being a part of the pet service industry; spending more time with the pets rather than with the paperwork.
Designer of the Pet Professional software system and previous owner of a pet sitting/dog walking company, Tim Flatland adds, “Now more than ever, using Pet Pro is comparable to hiring an additional employee to take care of your administrative needs.” For instance, the Auto Invoicing system is set up with the ability to automatically create and (if opted) send email invoices on a set frequency. Additionally, the Auto Billing feature will charge a customer’s credit card automatically. The invoicing and billing systems can be turned on/off on an individual client basis. These are examples of how Pet Professional allows users to customize their system to compliment their own business model. As Tim explains, “Each account is setup as a blank, feature-rich template. Users get to set up their service offerings within their accounts where they create access rules. This includes scheduling, payment, and package deals for their clients.”
The application has been available since late 2004 and has had great reaction from other industry professionals. Gretchen McGlensey, owner of
pet services company, Pampered Pooch Plus!, says that Pet Professional has streamlined her business and has given her the ability to get grow. “Being a small business owner, and still operating in the field as well as being administrator, greatly limits my time. Pet Professional gives me all the information I need quickly and efficiently… I look forward to growing my business now that I have Pet Professional to assist me in servicing my own client’s needs.”
