No you don’t need to install or update anything. Pet Manager is a completely web-based product. All you need is an internet connection and a modern browser. Simply load the website app.petmanager.com.au and the complete interface is online.
- What is the Difference between Software installed on my computer and an online product like Pet Manager?
Software installed on your computer requires updating everytime changes are made to the software. You are also responsible for backing up your data every day. Should something happen to your computer you may need to recover from a backup and could possibly lose data. Your information is also only available when you are in the office.
With online software like Pet Manager, you don’t have to worry about installing or updating anything or even backing up. All that is done for you. All you need is a modern web browser – Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, Chrome. If your computer is out of action – swap to a new one or a tablet and keep working immediately! You can also access the software from anywhere in the world!
- Is my data backed up?
Absolutely. We take data security and availability very seriously. We automatically backup your data every day.
- What is the maximum number of runs?
This is one of the benefits of Pet Manager. We offer a 10 run starter edition, a 30 run small business and unlimited runs edition. These runs can be in kennels, cattery and daycare so you get 10,30 or unlimited PER area!
- I already use Software to manage my Pet Resort. Can I import my data from my existing Software?
In most cases we can import key information from your existing system. Please contact us with details of your current software product for more details.
- How Does the Pet Manager Subscription Software work?
After your 60 day trial you will be prompted to either enter your credit card details for simple monthly payments or via invoice and direct deposit (Australia only). You can view your invoices in the system at any time. There is no contract and you can cancel at any time with no cancellation fee.
- Do you charge a transaction fee?
No. You pay the advertised price and no more. There are no additional credit card fees.
- If I change my computer or the office computer dies will I lose any data?
This is one of the main benefits of online software. Simply bookmark the website on the new computer and keeping working where you left off. Even load the site on an iPad, Tablet or phone in the meantime.
- Can my existing and new customers make a booking online?
Yes. If you want this functionality you can take booking requests directly from your own website into the system. This removes a lot of admin work in entering information. Don’t worry though – these bookings are requests only and are not approved until you login and approve them.
