Required Keys List

The Required Key Lists means that pet sitters can view a list of all the keys that are required to complete their schedule for the day but that are not yet in their own possession. The list contains important information on the current whereabouts of keys helping pet sitters to easily track them down. Optional settings mean that pet sitters can be empowered to update the location of individual key information as they get passed around the business.  

Flexible "Per Service" Compensation

For pet sitters who are paid on a “per service” basis, flexible compensation conditions stored in Pet Sitter Plus mean that your staff can be paid at different rates depending on many criteria including length of service, day of the week, public holidays, type of service, time of day etc.

 

The compensation report provides a useful summary of payments owed to pet sitters with easy access to detailed information for each employee or contractor.

If you are already an employer or thinking about an employee model, we recommend taking a closer look at our Staff Activity Report. Not only is it a great place to monitor how each pet sitter is progressing with their day, but it also contains accurate timesheet information to support hourly paid employees.

Staff Time Off

Staff can request time off that is then approved by business managers.  

 

Any time off conflicts are displayed in the schedule with services highlighted if the pet sitter assigned is not actually available due to booked time off. 

Reminders and To-Do items

Some of the tasks you ask your staff to perform are not necessarily chargeable service activities and might not even be things you would want your clients to know about. For example, you might want a sitter to attend an internal training session or you might have a requirement to remind your staff to call a client before a vacation visit is due. Pet Sitter Plus supports the concept of “internal services” which are services that are not seen by clients but appear in the Staff Dashboard so that staff can understand their internal “To-do” items, such as pre and post service follow ups.  

Money Well Spent = Happy Days
