Pet Sitter Plus contains a very powerful services module that enables you to create service Items can then be added to service orders as and when they are ordered by your clients.
Charge Conditions and Compensation Conditions
Using charge conditions and compensation conditions you can mirror your company's pricing rules so that your service orders are automatically priced correctly. The benefits of this are:
You need less services for your clients to choose from so the options are much clearer,
The rate increases/decreases are automatically applied to your services improving accuracy and reducing mistakes and forgotten changes,
Your staff are paid at the correct rate automatically so less mitakes.
Most pet sitting companies have rules that;
a) govern their pricing policy and
b) (if they are employers) govern the way they pay their staff.
These rules can be created in the services module using charge conditions and compensation conditions.
Once your charge conditions and compensation conditions have been created, your service orders will automatically be priced correctly and your staff commission reports will be calculated correctly first time round.
