DaySmart Software, the parent company of 123Pet Software, has acquired North Carolina’s PupKeep, a cloud-based pet service software company. This acquisition will allow 123Pet Software to expand their daycare, boarding, kenneling, and training solutions into its grooming salon and mobile pet grooming software.
“We are passionate about providing a platform for pet services professionals that not only makes their lives easier, but allows them to deliver superior customer service to their clients,” says Kraig Jacobson, co-founder of PupKeep.
“We’re excited about the synergies between 123Pet and PupKeep and know this a great opportunity to take PupKeep to the next level, expand our software’s capabilities, and reach an even broader audience of pet groomers, daycare facilities, kennels, and pet professionals. We are extremely excited for what the future holds for our customers and our employees.”
As part of the acquisition, DaySmart will open a new office in Raleigh with immediate plans to hire three new software developers in the first quarter, according to the release. PupKeep founders Brandon Ray and Kraig Jacobson will stay on as employees of the company and leaders of this growing team.
“Kraig and Brandon have created an excellent platform and support system for the kenneling and pet daycare industries, and we’re thrilled to be adding them, their expert team, and their technology to our business,” says Jeff Dickerson, CEO of DaySmart Software.
“Their approach to the business problems faced by these professionals is borne out of first-hand kenneling experience and has been continually informed by their customers. That level of industry-specific expertise and dedicated customer attention is what DaySmart prides itself on, and we look forward to seeing what they’re able to accomplish as members of our team.”
