Why use a scheduling app for pet grooming

You have started your grooming salon for a reason; Being around lovely and cute pets all day and making them shine again! Sounds like a dream come true and we as Vev we can fully understand that. However, there are also other things to think about.

Staying in touch with clients, informing them about how long their appointments will take, organising your schedule and we can go on forever. Maybe these are all things you haven’t thought about but you probably haven’t started your grooming salon with the reason to spend a lot of time organising all your appointments.

An appointment scheduler for pet grooming salons can help you to organise your work day more efficiently. The software can send you reminders and keep all your appointments in one place. This can help you stay organised and make the most of your day.

Benefits of using pet grooming software

There are many benefits of using pet grooming booking software.

The biggest advantage: Saving time. You are grooming a pomeranian and just at the moment while you are grooming the ears and there is full focus to not harm the beloved pomeranian, you receive a phone call from a client. She wants to make an appointment for somewhere next week. You have to put down the clipper, look up your online agenda and find the next available time slot. The first two suggested time slots are no option for your client and as soon as you realise it, you have spent 5 minutes trying to schedule an extra appointment.

When using a scheduling app, there is no need for this. It can still be the case that you receive phone calls while you are at work. But with one simple message, you can send your digital calendar and your client can see all your available time slots. Congratulations, your appointment just took 30 seconds to organise!

Apart from that, you can also keep track of your client lists and the king poodle that you haven’t seen for 2 months now will need a new haircut soon. Maybe the owner forgot and if the poodle is not coming, you will spend ages trying to comb out all the tangles that have saved up. Give the owner a quick message that it is time for a new appointment for the best interest of his / her poodle.

Even having online awareness can help to find new clients. Even though you might not like spending hours behind your phone or laptop, showing the existence of your salon online can help with finding new cats and dogs to your store.

A list of other benefits that isn’t mentioned yet:

  • Improved patient care and satisfaction
  • Reduced paperwork and phone calls
  • Fewer scheduling errors
  • More time for patient treatments
  • Increased organisation and efficiency

What to think about when picking a pet grooming software?

The most important thing to think about when choosing your software is convenience. Is everything easy to use for you and your clients? If not, the temptation to just use a physical calendar and getting in touch with clients the “old-school” way is hard. Therefore pick something that is easy to set up and use.

Does that mean that all your clients need to book online via your personalised dog grooming software? No, that is definitely not the case. Some clients that you are loyal to for years, just like a little small-talk with you and pop by your salon or send you a text message. That is all fine, our software has the ability to schedule appointments yourself and give you the space to provide the extra bit of personal service that you want to provide to your clients.
