RUN A SUCCESSFUL VETERINARY BUSINESS

Veterinarians often tell us how stressed and busy their workday is. They feel bogged down with administrative and financial tasks while also trying to provide the best patient care. It’s easy for important issues to slip through the cracks.

A FULL APPOINTMENT
CALENDAR MAY NOT
MEAN FULL PROFITABILITY

Many practices believe that a busy clinic and a full calendar mean a successful business. But they don't see hidden inefficiencies, such as untrained staff, missed charges and inconsistent standards of care. Many practice owners also have limited business knowledge. These factors combined can drain profitability from a business.

THE REAL COST
OF A NON-OPTIMISED PRACTICE

In most practices, missed charges account for up to 5% in lost revenue yearly. In some practices, it can be as high as 30%.

Practices spend an extra 3 minutes per client at checkout and 25 hours of reconciliation time per 500 swipes when credit card processing is not integrated with practice management software.

Computers in a busy veterinary practice are likely to last only 3 to 5 years. Older computers don’t support newer operating systems, and crashes and slow performance drastically affect staff productivity.
