[prMac.com] Chicksands, United Kingdom - KennettNet Software Ltd today is proud to announce Clarus 1.5, an update to their pet management solution for Mac OS X, now with a companion iPhone app. Perfect for maintaining insurance and medical records, vet bills, and expense receipts, Clarus was specifically designed to manage a pet's life and paperwork, all in one convenient, easy-to-use utility. When a pet needs to be rushed to the vet, the last thing a pet owner needs is searching through piles of paperwork for that missing document.
Clarus is fully integrated into the OS X Desktop experience. Important events, such as medication dose due dates, visits to the vet, birthdays and insurance policy renewal dates, are all placed into iCal, allowing the pet owner's Macintosh and any synced devices to remind them of when these are due. Clarus is fully AppleScriptable too, so all of a pet's data is fully accessible. Sample scripts are included that demonstrate how to extract all of a pet's photos into an iPhoto album, import all of a pet's expenses into Apple Numbers, and more. This makes Clarus a perfect compliment to Apple's iLife suite.
New in version 1.5 is the ability to sync with Clarus' companion app, Clarus for iPhone. This allows you to keep all of your pet's important information with you wherever you go, as well as show off your favourite photos to your friends and family. Clarus for iPhone is available for free from the iTunes App Store.
"Owning a pet is a wonderful experience. However, keeping track of their important paperwork is not" said Daniel Kennett, founder of KennettNet. "You probably have folders full of documents, and your wall calendar is littered with little reminders to give a flea treatment or to go to the vet for a checkup and more. But no matter how organized you are, there's always that worry that you've missed something."
So they're always available, all important contacts are stored in Address Book. At any time, pet owners can QuickLook a Clarus document and immediately be given an overview of what's up and coming for their pet. One of Clarus's most prolific features is its poster creation and printing support. So if Spot just happens to go missing, printing a bold missing poster that includes his photo and basic details along with contact information with reward takes just seconds.

* Sync with Clarus for iPhone to keep your pet's details with you wherever you are
