Like many small businesses, MN Pets tracks client information and invoices, expenses such as employee and contractor compensation, revenues and taxes. However, they face the added challenge of maintaining records on narcotic drug inventories and usage for the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), in addition to veterinary medical records for patients.
MN Pets had outgrown their Excel spreadsheets and needed a centralized software solution that would allow real-time connection for multiple users, simplifying their processes and record-keeping. It was also necessary that the solution be user-friendly and easily implemented with minimal technical knowledge and minimal ongoing support.
The off-the-shelf and custom built solutions that MN Pets encountered were too inflexible or too complex for their requirements. Fortunately, the Intelex Application Builder was suggested by someone who had experience with the Intelex system in an enterprise environment.
Intelex's Application Builder provided MN Pets with a set of functionalities they were able to use to create their own software solution. Taking advantage of Intelex's secure and centralized Web-Based Platform, MN Pets configured the system to match their unique business processes and requirements.

- Should the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) inquire, the MN Pets "Buddy System" is 100% audit ready.
- Simplicity of the platform interface required minimal training and made for a smooth implementation.
