About us

About Us

The journey began in 2009 with a family-run dog grooming business that had been successfully operating for several years. However, they relied on outdated methods such as paper diaries and record cards to manage their clients and bookings.

However, they soon began to encounter challenges. Mistakes were being made, phone numbers were getting jumbled, deciphering others' handwriting became a struggle, and the manual search for client records became an increasingly burdensome administrative task. All they truly desired was a way to effortlessly locate clients and find suitable appointments for them.

With a growing realization that they needed a digital solution, they set out on an adventure through the vast realm of the internet. They discovered numerous options, but none of them appeared to be simple or specifically tailored for existing dog grooming businesses like theirs.

Fuelled by their determination, they decided to take matters into their own hands. Luckily, they had a skilled software developer within their ranks. They embarked on a 12-month journey of designing and building their own solution, which they named 'Border.'

Excited about the potential their creation held, they took their first product to the market, offering grooming businesses a system that was truly designed with them in mind. This was just the beginning of their quest.

Over the years, they dedicated themselves to relentless improvement, continuously developing and releasing new versions of their platform. Their reach extended beyond borders, expanding into numerous countries. Their mission remained unwavering: keep it simple and reduce the administrative burdens that plagued grooming businesses.

And so, their story continues to unfold, as they strive to make the lives of grooming professionals easier, one innovative solution at a time.
