Yes. I’ve have led product teams in the past for hospitality technology solutions. We applied many of the strategies learned from hospitality to the pet industry.
Taking the time to interview the market to truly understand the problems they face and how we could best deliver a solution that satisfies those needs.

My favorite app by far is Waze. They take a very complex technology and serve the benefits of that technology to consumers in a very easy-to-use mobile application. Waze has become the global transportation app by nailing the customer experience.
Four years. Started with an idea in 2015 and it grew into a prototype by 2016. We officially launched in January 2018.
Two out of every three homes in this country have at least one pet. It’s a massive consumer market with a complex set of needs. We help simplify the pet owner experience by focusing on the five pillars of pet care; adoptions, services, resources, lifestyle, and philanthropy. We make it easy for pet owners to find solutions for each of those pillars in our application and we continue to grow our community as a result.
If there is any lesson that I have learned, it’s that our opinions are irrelevant. When it comes to providing the ultimate customer experience, you have to talk to your customers. Pet Connect is built through the lens of pet owners. We get contacted by over 100 pet owners a month asking us for additional features and improvements. When we see a pattern, we jump all over it. Pet Connect belongs to pet owners. We are simply the administrators that keep it running.
We are actively working on partnerships to bring further additions to the community, such as pet-friendly parks, restaurants, hotels, and apartment complexes. Whatever the pet owner community needs, we try to find ways to make it happen.
Pet owners, please add your pet profiles so that you can unlock all the features in Pet Connect and then start exploring pet-friendly resources in your area! Have fun and let us know how we can make your life as a pet owner a rewarding experience.
