If you’re already subscribed to Groomsoft, you don’t need to re-enter your information into Pet Groomer Finder. PGF fully integrates with Groomsoft and will pull information from your GS account for a fast and easy onboarding process.
Whenever an action is completed by either you or the pet owner, the relevant party will be notified via their preferred contact method. This is a general overview of how the process works and as the groomer, you can customize various aspects of the booking process according to your preferences.
Online booking status: Choose whether or not you want your profile to be displayed on the PGF website.
Appointment preferences: Decide whether you want to make online booking available to everyone, existing customers only or no one. (If you select “no one,” users won’t be able to make an appointment, but your profile will still be listed on PGF.)
Auto-approve appointments: By default, Groomsoft will ask whether you want to accept or reject an appointment. You can choose to bypass this and automatically accept appointment requests from PGF.
Timing controls: How soon can a customer request an appointment? How far out? How close to the appointment can the customer edit the appointment request? How close to the appointment can the customer cancel? You can control all of these factors.
Notifications: When communicating with customers, you can choose whether you want to be notified via email or text message.
As a Groomsoft subscriber, you can program PGF to work around your schedule. Pet owners on PGF can request appointments only for the dates/times that you choose.
You can also customize the start and stop times of each block to control your window of availability.
If you have multiple groomers working for you, you can use the quantity feature to create multiple open blocks for the same time. For example, if you enter the number “3” in the quantity field, you can accept three separate appointments for that specific time block.
If your grooming business is on-the-move, you can make the most of your time with PGF. Mobile groomers can:
See appointments on the map: When reviewing an appointment request, you’ll be able to see the locations of your accepted appointments on the map, along with the location of the requested appointment. This will help you determine whether it makes sense to accept or reject that appointment request, depending on where you’ll be that day.
Optimize routes: You can use the map to automatically optimize your route and view the most efficient order for accepting appointments. By clicking, “Show Me When I’m Close,” you’ll see which days/times you’ll be closest to that particular customer. This can help you decide what times you should schedule appointments for so that you can save fuel and time with every trip.
Choose a radius range: You can choose how far from your general service area salon address that you want customers to be able to find you.
Show or hide salon address: If your business doesn't have a physical address, you are not required to display your home address on the PGF website. You can also decide whether or not you want your address to be displayed in the map on the search results page.
