Since 2003, PetKey has provided solutions to thousands of happy customers. In 2020, it was time for us to build a mobile application together.

As the team at PetKey knows, a pet is a member of the family. As such, it’s of the utmost importance to keep them safe and accounted for. Since 2003, PetKey has provided solutions to thousands of happy customers. Now in 2020, it was only natural to add a mobile app to the array of tools at PetKey’s disposal. With the PetKey mobile app, users have instant access to a network of others who can help them reconnect with their pets, including the team at PetKey. With just a few taps, a user can post a missing pet, browse other lost pets,

We built the PetKey app to provide an intuitive and easy-to-use experience for users of all ages.

The heart of the app is the PetKey community network. With the devoted community of pet owners participating in the ecosystem combined with the power of the app itself, that will result in Petkey becoming a tremendous ally for owners who have lost their pets. It was also important to create a fun and rewarding app experience, keeping users engaged and excited about using the product. Part of what makes the PetKey app such a powerful resource for pet owners is how easy it is to report lost pets and also pets that are found. The map functionality, showing off fun icons to denote lost pets, found pets, and resources, shows how fun and seriousness can be mixed.

PetKey+ members also have some extra benefits if they pay, allowing for instant alerts to go out to anyone in the area. The geolocation capabilities of the application ensure that people can see where pets were last seen and where they were found.

The PetKey team was responsible for all of the backend APIs, providing and collaborating with the Chop Dawg team who built the mobile frontend in React Native.

The two companies worked closely together, and PetKey gave Chop Dawg extensive documentation as a blueprint. Using the documentation they provided to us as a blueprint. Chop Dawg has planned for this app to launch in stages. The first stage is the PetKey portion of the app, shown here. This will be followed by the office manager admin backend, and finally, the client-side application. The intention of this staggered launch approach was to allow PetKey to get their product into the market as quickly as possible without sacrificing quality.

Some of the technology that we used to create the PetKey app

PetKey was built as an iPhone and Android application using React Native and with REST APIs, supporting iOS 12, iOS 13, and Android 9, Android 10. For the administrator backend, website application, server-side, we used PHP with Laravel, built on React.
