As a pet care professional, your time is precious. Running a successful business requires you to juggle multiple tasks, from managing clients and prospects to overseeing staff members. The good news is that technology has made it possible to automate many of these processes, allowing you to focus on what you do best – providing excellent care for pets. In this post, we will explore how you can leverage Time To Pet's Zapier Integration to automate your pet care business and save valuable time.

At this time, Time To Pet currently offers the following triggers:

  • New Client Created
  • New Client Prospect Created (someone who completes your New Client Form)
  • New Staff Member Created
  • Client Created or Updated (for when a client profile is updated)
  • Staff Created or Updated (for when a staff profile is updated)

Streamline Client Management With A Zap

With Time To Pet's Zapier integration, you can create zaps (automated workflows) that trigger actions whenever a new client is created in your system. This means you no longer have to manually update your client database, and any follow-up communication for the client or management teams can be automatically generated.

But the automation doesn't stop there. You can also set up a zap for when a new client prospect is created using your New Client Form. This not only saves you time but also ensures that no potential leads slip through the cracks. By automatically capturing and organizing prospect information, you can nurture these leads and convert them into loyal clients. For example, you can create zaps to generate tasks or to-do lists for each new client, helping you stay organized and ensuring you don't miss any important tasks while they are onboarded.

A few ideas. When a new client is added, create a Zap to automatically add that client to your CRM or project management software, such as Asana, Active Campaign or Trello. Or, when a new client is added, create a Zap to automatically add them to your outside email marketing software, such as Mailchimp.

Here we have an example of a Zap for adding new client work flow into Trello:

First, the Trello application was added and enabled in Zapier.


Next, a Zap was created and used as the trigger for when a new client is created.


When a new client was added in Time To Pet, the Zap was triggered, and it created a task card in Trello.


Which can be used directly in your Trello account.


Optimize Staff Management with Automated Workflows

Running a pet care business often involves managing a team of dedicated staff members. Keeping track of their schedules, assignments, and availability can be quite a challenge. However, with Time To Pet's Zapier integration, you can simplify a portion of these tasks using automated workflows.

By creating a zap for when a new staff member is created, you can automatically update your staff directory and send out onboarding materials using a linked email or other messaging provider. This ensures that your new hires feel welcomed and ready to hit the ground running. Some payroll companies also offer Zapier integrations, Zaps can be sent to them with your newly added staff member details. Or, create a Zap to automatically add the new staff member to your Trello account. And much like with clients, new staff can be automatically added to project management apps like Trello to create and track workflows as they are onboarding with your company!
