As a busy veterinary practice in Frisco, Texas, Lazy Paw’s owners Dr. Hunter and Dr. Bilhartz needed an efficient, streamlined and one-stop banking solution to handle their business financial needs.
Texas Republic Bank was able to provide customized solutions to their unique banking requirements. At the same time, a single TRB bank officer was able to work with the vets, building a long-term relationship that has continued to grow. As a local community bank, TRB offers this flexibility and locally based decision-making process for all of our banking customers.
When Dr. Hunter and Dr. Bilhartz first talked about their banking challenges with their Sean M. Duncan, CPA the President and Owner of SMD Consulting & Accounting, LLC., the challenges to their current banking practices were evident.
The animal hospital was working with multiple banks, which also meant working with different bank officers. While this was initially a viable solution, as the practice grew and the banking needs increased, it created a host of complications and challenges.
With multiple banks and multiple bank officers, it was difficult for anyone to have a true overview of the best financial practices for the business. And, as is often the case when working with different professionals, the information or the options suggested weren’t always right for the big picture financial goals and needs for the animal hospital.
To make matters even more complicated, one of the bank offices at the current bank was leaving, which meant the vets were going to have to get used to working with yet another new professional.
