BizBark software integrates pet businesses into the BabelBark ecosystem. The BabelBark ecosystem includes pet parents, veterinarians, neighborhood pet businesses, local shelters, and LOTS of data to ensure each pet has a voice. BizBark is designed for local pet businesses and non-profits (pet stores, boarding, grooming, training, shelters). The BizBark Portal is a simple, easy-to-use website to manage: appointments, customers, employees, and promotions.
Just go to http://portal.bizbark.com/vendor/login and create an account. Once the account is created you will have access to the BizBark Portal.
The current version of BizBark is free. All the features included in the current system will always be free. We will add premium features over time that will require a paid subscription (like text message reminders) but everything in BizBark that is there today will always be free. There is no limitation on number of customers, appointments, or anything else. You can cancel at anytime.
The BabelBark mobile app is designed for pet parents. The app is available as a free download on the Apple and Android stores. The mobile app helps parents set and manage fitness goals, create medication/vaccination reminders, schedule appointments, store medical records, manage weight, and much more.
The mobile app is NOT required for you to use BizBark. You can however connect more closely with customers when they are using the app. Customers with the app can request appointments, receive targeted promotions, share medical records, and contact you directly thru the app.
The BizBark Portal is a secure online website…all you need is an Internet connection to access it. Organizations use the BizBark Portal to define their presence within the BabelBark ecosystem. Contact information, logos, operating hours, and other company information is managed within the BizBark Portal. You can publish services to enable customers to request and manage appointments thru the convenient mobile app for pet parents. You can also use the BizBark Portal to create targeted promotions delivered directly to new and existing clients.
The BabelVet Portal is built with HTML 5….which means it will pretty much run on anything. Laptops, desktops. tablets, mobile devices……you name it. Additionally, BabelVet automatically detect what type of device you are using and optimizes your experience for that device. If you are using a laptop, the display utilizes the entire screen area. If you are using a mobile device, the display shrinks to fit your device.
No! Fitness tracking is only one of many benefits provided thru the BabelBark app. With BabelBark, you can store and share medical records, lost & found information, pet licenses, care details, and more…all thru our secure cloud infrastructure. You can also connect with your favorite veterinarian and pet business to schedule, shop, and pay thru the mobile app. Your veterinarian will gain detailed insight into your pet’s diet, activity and medical dosage history….and don’t forget about the coupons and discounts exclusively made available to members thru the app!
Now, when it comes to activity tracking, there are two options. The first option is to use the GPS tracking built into the app to record your walks. Just open the app and click Start when you begin. Don’t forget to click Stop when complete. The second option is to use the BabelBark fitness tracker. You can purchase these at our online store here (https://babelbark.com/buy). When you receive the device, follow the instructions and you’ll be tracking your dog’s activity 24/7…even while you are away.
Any information entered into BizBark belongs to you. We will not use or access your information without express permission. Information entered into the mobile app by pet parents belongs to them. Everybody within the BabelBark ecosystem owns their respective data and must explicitly choose to share it with other members. So for example, a pet’s vaccination records are shared by the veterinarian with a pet parent who in turn shares those records with a pet business. You don’t have to be a member of the BabelBark ecosystem to share or access information, however membership makes it much easier.
It takes a village to raise a child and even more than that with pets because they can’t talk. By seamlessly sharing the right information with the right person we can help ensure the happiness and health of each pet while helping you connect more closely with customers, reduce costs and grow your business.
