This example involves a pet owner who is dropping their pet of at your veterinary practice.

  1. The pet owner arrives at your veterinary practice clicks on the link in the text reminder or navigates to
  2. They are shown a list of local businesses based on thier current location. Your practice should be first if they are located outside. They simply click ‘check in’.
  3. They are prompted to enter in thier name, pet name (if set up by you), vehicle registration and then click ‘check in’.
  4. The recieve an immediate automated notification from your practice acknowledging thier check in (this notification can be customised by you).
  5. You are immediately notified of your client’s arrival via the planner dashboard.
  6. When you are ready to process the client, you can click on the client’s card on the planner screen and select the next step (You can choose up to 3 actions).
  7. As soon as you have selected the next step your client will get a notification on their phone explaining the next steps (this notification can be customised by you).
  8. As soon as you have dealt with the clients request you can mark it off as complete and the client gets a thank you message (this notification can be customised by you).
