We have made some substantial styling improvements to the Staff Dashboard and Staff Activity Report, plus onboarding new clients is becoming easier all the time as we extend and enhance the capabilities of the New Client Registration process. 

 

There are also some additional exciting new features and bug fixes.

    • In this release, the staff dashboard has been much improved so it now reflects Version 7 in its look and feel.

  • New Extra Features in the Staff Activity Report >
    • The staff activity report has been restyled, plus additional functionality means you can do far more without having to leave the staff activity report.

  • New Take control of onboarding New Clients >
    • The onboarding process has been significantly improved to control how you allow new clients to register themselves in your system.

    • Define the area you do business in to prevent clients registering who are out of area. 

  • New Show Icon Labels in the Main Menu >
    • Some of you asked us to reinstate labels under the icons in the main navigation menu. We listened and in this mini release you can now choose to display them.

Stunning New Release of Version 7.0 >

New releases date icon

March 2022

Modern new look and feel

After over 20 months of development, we are excited to bring you the new and improved Version 7 of Pet Sitter Plus.

The new functionality includes:

  • A modern New "APP Ready" Look and Feel.  A restyled & updated Admin & Staff Interface that is super modern with a completely fresh look and feel.

  • Major Client Portal Updates. A re-vamped look and feel for the client portal means that the client experience will be transformed with improved support for mobile platforms. The new client portal can be customised to match your own website/branding which will create a more seamless experience for your clients and many new features will make the user experience much more friendly and modern. 

  • Better Looking Emails. Support for rich text throughout the system which means that text for emails and standard narratives can be more easily and richly customised and formatted by you. Think "bold", "underline", "hyperlinks", etc.

  • Improved Onboarding. The introduction of mandatory fields means that you will be able to set policies that ensure clients provide you with all the "must have" data you need at the time of completing online registration. This will mean that the experience of onboarding new clients will be more streamlined and easier to manage.

  • One Integrated Configurable Interface. In this release the Staff and the Admin interfaces have been combined with new granular permission controls. This means that you can assign specific administration functions to individual users without necessarily making the staff member a full administrator. This helps you create a bespoke user experience for those individuals with unique roles in your organisation. 

  • New searchable HELP function. In this next release we have introduced a brand new knowledge base that is packed full of updated help articles and is fully searchable. This will make it much easier and faster to find the answers that you need.

  • On screen Universal Guidance. Each screen in Pet Sitter Plus has integrated guidance as standard which means that if you have forgotten how to use a function, or even what it does, then you will be able to access a guide to the functions of the screen with a single mouse click. If you want to know more, then this guide will signpost you to the most relevant parts of our new knowledge base where more complete explanations will be available.
