Fast creation of repeating monthly schedules.
One of the most time consuming aspects of running a pet sitting business is scheduling your work but Pet Sitter Plus solves this problem for you. When you are running a manual system, or even with some software solutions, setting up the schedules for the coming week or month can take forever, but with Pet Sitter Plus you can create accurate recurring schedules for your entire business in just seconds.
Creating your recurring schedules for each client
The first step is to create a recurring schedule for each client that orders the same services on the same days each week. A repeat schedule might be created for a client who has a walk every Monday or perhaps a client who has a home visit every Wednesday, Thursday or Friday.
You can setup complex recurring schedules
Tilley has a walk on Monday Wednesday and Friday mornings and a home visit on Tuesday and Thursday in the afternoon. In Pet Sitter Plus you would simply create two recurring schedules for this client (one for the morning services and one for the afternoon) and the system would accurately schedule the work each month.
You can even create recurring schedules for service packages that you invoice in advance.
Setting up your repeat service requirements at client level is a “one time” setup option. You would only typically re-visit a repeat service record if the client changed their regular service requirements.
Running Repeat Services.
Having created your repeat services at client level (one time setup), Pet Sitter Plus then has a really cool RUN REPEAT SERVICES function that allows you to schedule all your repeat services for your entire company in just seconds. This utility is really powerful because not only does it create your entire recurring schedule for the week or the month ahead (populating your staff schedules and your admin diary) but it also creates the invoices and creates the staff compensation records at the same time.
Imagine having all the recurring work for your entire business scheduled, all the invoices created and the staff paid in less than 10 seconds. This is one of the great time saving features of Pet Sitter Plus.
