There are many aspects to consider when you are choosing the right pet franchise. While many people look at the support, marketing assistance and growth potential of franchises (which are all essential aspects to look at), most overlook some of the smaller important details, such as proprietary software. While this may seem like an insignificant aspect of the business, but here are a few things to keep in mind.
Why Does it Matter with a Pet Franchise?
Most of the franchise opportunities you look at will have cookie cutter software. This can do basic functions, such as manage pricing, ringing up customers and other simplistic needs. When you have a proprietary software, it will be more comprehensive. With Splash and Dash this covers everything from inventory management and purchases to tracking customers. It even manages communication with your customers, making the sales process even easier.
Efficiency Translates to Higher Productivity
The main benefit of having proprietary software is the efficiency this offers you. It gives you the ability to manage tasks and takes the guess work out of your inventory. It also can track daily tasks and prevent employees from forgetting to due tasks. This can improve your productivity because the time you would otherwise spend on these tasks can be delegated to other aspects of the business.
Made by Pet Store Owners for Pet Store Owners
Another important thing to keep in mind with this is that the software is designed by pet store owners who understand the needs of owners for efficiency in the business. Cookie cutter software programs pale in comparison because they are not thought through to this extent, even if they claim they are designed for the pet industry.
