Crematories automate data collection, drastically reducing human effort and errors. Our pet tracking platform fully tracks and makes visible pets through every step of the cremation process, confirming full chain of custody, alleviating need for paper, and digitizing the entire workflow for crematories, vets and pet parents while providing full transparency to all within the ecosystem. Pets are scanned into and out of pre-established stations once services are performed with time, use and user stamps. Fixed overhead antennas, proximity and mobile handheld scanners detect and read tags. Loading dock antennas automatically pre-check groups of pets within vans as they enter facilities. RFID tags are automatically updated with change order requests. From crematory portals that map and manage stations pet check-in/out to driver’s handhelds which manage fleet pickups/drop-offs routes, to administration portals with full reporting, BI, invoicing direct or through QuickBooks or NetSuite, Angelpaw offers a complete solution to all pet crematory needs.

Veterinarians have full access to all data via reporting and BI tools for individual or multi-location (single location, regional, national or global). Full integration into 94% of all Practice Information Management Systems (PIMS) alleviates the need for double data entry, drastically reducing errors and processing times. Audit capabilities for vets to have peace of mind with features that combine digital audit (transactional audit, workflow audit), image audit (station photos, station screenshots), pet parent experience score and NPS audit, and physical onsite audits. Vets no longer have any paper. All data is imported into the portal and scanned on a UHF RFID waterproof plastic tag that instantly digitally stores all data.

Pet parents have full visibility, transparency, and peace of mind of their beloved pet’s final journey via our web portal, mobile apps, text message and emails. Our mobile apps and portal offer pet tracking, grief support videos and video conferencing with certified pet loss counselors, celebration video creators to share memories with family and friends on social media and more.
