Located in the heart of Simi Valley, California, the Simi Valley Pet Resort has evolved from a humble establishment to a thriving haven for pets under the guidance of Steve Becker. The facility consists of over 3,100 square feet of climate-controlled open space, a Full-service Grooming Salon, and cozy overnight boarding areas.
Founded in 2017 by the previous owner, the pet resort embarked on a new trajectory when Steve and his co-owner took over. “The company was started in 2017 by the previous owner. We started the purchase negotiations in January 2020. By April 1, 2020, we had moved the business to a new location and due to COVID, we only had about 10 dogs a day averaging at the facility. Now we average about 60 a day and have a staff of 15," Steve reveals, showcasing their rapid expansion despite the challenges posed by the pandemic.
The discovery of Gingr was a turning point for Simi Valley Pet Resort. After weeks of diligent research and evaluation, Gingr stood out as the solution that perfectly aligned with their needs. Steve explains, “After researching for weeks and reviewing all the companies out there, it stood out because it was created by business owners like ourselves and accepts input from owners."
Gingr seamlessly integrated into their operations, revolutionizing their approach to reservation management, check-ins, and customer interactions. The software's capacity to maintain comprehensive pet records, track appointments, and handle payments efficiently became the cornerstone of their success.
Timekeeping and payroll, a crucial aspect of any business, underwent a remarkable transformation with Gingr. “The scheduling and timekeeping aspect makes it so much easier to run payroll," Steve acknowledges, highlighting the software's impact on simplifying their administrative tasks.
With Steve's steadfast commitment and Gingr's support, the pet resort has risen above challenges, attracting pet owners from all corners of the city, while ensuring each furry guest enjoys a luxurious and personalized experience. As the journey continues, one thing remains certain: the partnership between Simi Valley Pet Resort and Gingr has been harmonious and a testament to innovation, resilience, and unwavering love for furry companions.
