New Eclipse family member up & running

New Eclipse family member up & running

1st July 2019

Simon Constable's Equine Vets joined the Eclipse 'family' in 2019, amid a host of other exciting new developments at the practice, including new offices and upgraded clinical facilities!

To see the recent progress made, Simon has posted an excellent video here.

Eclipse seems to have hit the spot well with everyone getting to grips with the new ways of working very quickly, and vets much enjoying being able to have complete animal histories with them now wherever their visits take them.

Simon explained, "We decided to invest in this particular veterinary software because of the fantastic reviews from many top Equine only practices because it has been developed in conjunction with one of the world's leading Equine practices, Rossdales in Newmarket. It has been designed purely for equine vets rather than adapted from other industries or from small animal practices. We are hoping it will further improve our service to clients."

Improved Treatment Reminders

Improved Treatment Reminders

29th May 2019

Treatment reminders are now able to be sent directly from Eclipse by SMS text and/or email, as well as by postcard or letter, rather than having to create an Excel export and upload to a third party service to send out.

Though Eclipse has forever had good systems to find animals due for their next vaccination or dental visit, the treatment reminders procedure was not an automated one. Text messages and emails could not be sent directly from the list of animals (whose owners were) due to receive them.

Now the process is much quicker and easier. Clients can opt to receive reminders or not, have these sent by text and email, or text OR email, and/or by post as well if required. A single text/email message can be created to cover multiple animals where an owner has more than one due a reminder.

Equine benchmarking takes a leap forward

Equine benchmarking takes a leap forward

21st June 2018

Eclipse are delighted to announce a new relationship with Veterinary Insights, providers of an equine benchmarking service known as Vet Viewer Equine

This benchmarking service, which is free to equine practices in the UK, allows participating practices to anonymously compare and analyse their activities against other equine practices. For Eclipse practices, participating in this service is easy; you just need to run a built-in report once a month and send the resultant data as a csv file to Veterinary Insights.

The service is open to all equine vets and is completely independent of any pharmaceutical company. Your data is stored safely and the service is GDPR compliant. Veterinary Insights will not reveal your data to any other business.

By using VetViewer Equine you can quickly understand your key business metrics each month and get a clear view of each of your practice activities and the income they are producing. In addition, you may compare your practice’s key activity numbers against others in your region, completely anonymously, allowing you to assess your achievements, and track your performance over time as staff and business processes change. For instance, are you generating more revenues from dentals than other practices? Are you vaccinating fewer horses than other practices?
