shelter boss's powerful licensing features include:

flexible fee structures

Shelter Boss offers a multitude of options for calculating fees: species, animal age, breeds, geographical criteria such as city, jurisdiction, or county, and even user-defined questions that trigger automatic fee changes. Issue annual, biannual, or fixed-term licenses, and prorate fees based on rabies expiration date (optional). Assign late fees (with grace period) and replacement fees, prorate fees, and offer discounts or fee-free licenses to seniors, disabled persons, and service animals. License fees, online payment fees, and sales tax are calculated and applied automatically, whether a license is being purchased online by the public or issued by your staff. On the back end, you can split fees collected among one or more G/L numbers and export your financial data for use with systems like QuickBooks.

fast online purchase and renewal

Your customers can purchase and renew their licenses online with fees that are automatically calculated so the process is quick and streamlined. You can also provide basic user accounts, so your customers can view activity and renew their licenses online. You can even include one-click renewal links in your custom renewal correspondence.

comprehensive inventory programs

Our inventory system includes order placement, invoicing, and receiving (to one or multiple locations), auto-numbering or manufacturer-supplied sequential or non-sequential unit numbering, serial/part/unit/control/lot numbers, multiple inventory locations, restock reporting, and shrinkage.

custom correspondence

Use your own text, colors, and logo in renewal correspondence and past-due notices that can be mailed or e-mailed. Complete correspondence history tracks all mailings and e-mailings and lets you reprint or resend anytime.

robust reporting

We have a report for that! Shelter Boss includes many standard reports, hundreds of charts and graphs, and a Report Designer that let you easily return just the data you want, in the format you need. You can even have your custom reports periodically e-mailed to yourself or anyone else.
