Puppies' Paws Spa The number one priority at Puppies’ Paws Spa will be to make sure every dog that visits the spa will be treated like royalty. At Puppies’ Paws Spa, we will track each individual dog’s needs and preferences. For example, if a dog needs special medication or a dog does not like to be petted on the head, it will be recorded. I propose that Puppies’ Paws Spa starts out with two basic software applications, Microsoft Office 365 and Quick Books, for the tracking of finances and customer information. Each application’s cost will work within the starting budget of the Spa and will provide sufficient tracking capability needed to keep up with our new clientele. In the following proposal I will go over the benefit of each of the applications mentioned above. Microsoft Office 365 Microsoft Office 365 is a great application for any small business to start with; it will provide great versatility at a price that will fit into our budget. Office 365 will provide email and calendars on the go, easy conferences, free IT support, and all the security and privacy a business will need.
Versatility
All the applications that users have come to love are still with Microsoft Office 365, but with all new upgrades. • Microsoft Word • Microsoft Powerpoint • Microsoft Excel • Microsoft Access • Microsoft Outlook • Microsoft Lync • Microsoft OneNote • Microsoft Publisher
Having access to all of these applications will make marketing and tracking customer information easier. Microsoft Excel will allow us to track information in charts and spreadsheets with ease; once the spreadsheets are complete we will have instant data analysis. Then we will be able to bring our charts to any meeting online using Microsoft Lync. Microsoft Lync has all the necessary tools needed to stay in touch with our internal office and customers; we will have the capability to instant message, voice over IP, and video conferencing with a click of a button. Puppies’ Paws Spa will be able to keep a clients’ contact list and Lync will also show who is currently on line or what their current status is. All of the applications will have a great benefit to the start-up of Puppies’ Paws Spa, whether it is using Powerpoint for marketing purposes or utilizing Access to create a database of each of our individual customers, and using each of these individual applications will allow us to build a personal relationship with each of our customers.
Cost
The cost to have Microsoft Office 365 will include the initial cost of Microsoft Office Professional 2010 at $300.00. Purchasing the Office 365 Small Business will cost an additional $6.00 a month per user. That will give everyone access to a business class mailbox of 25 GB, shared calendars, and an easy to build public website with no hosting fees. Having Microsoft Office 365 available to Puppies’ Paw Spa will enable us to start our company off on the right foot.

Quick Books In order for Puppies’ Paws Spa to keep accurate records, we will need affordable financial software. Quickbooks Pro 2013 is a great application for writing invoices, creating tax records and organizing all of Puppies’ Paws Spa financial records.
Versatility
The number one use of Quickbooks is making and recording deposits (Fig 1); the money that comes in and out of our business will need to be tracked properly and Quickbooks makes the tracking process easy by…
