This version of Animana contains several bug fixes, security and performance improvements, and several new background features and enhancements listed below:

Easy crediting for Invoices

We have been developing new functionality which will allow you to easily process returns and refunds and make corrections for erroneous invoices. These changes are part of greater plans to enhance stock management within Animana and are currently being tested by a few of our customers before the functionality will be made available to all customers. To read more about how credits will work you click here.

New Application Programming Interface (API)

An API makes it possible for programs to interact with each other. You can see it as the messenger that sends a question to another program and brings the reply back in an expected format. For example; if a pet owner books an appointment via Vetstoria. Vetstoria would use an API to ask Animana if there are available timeslots for the appointment. The pet owner can book the appointment slot and the appointment is shown on the Animana agenda.

Animana’s new API will enhance the current capabilities of secure data exchange between Animana and other applications, allowing us to work with other partners. In this release, we are deploying the architecture that will enable other 3rd parties to connect to us in the future.  As of May 2019, we will have the first data elements available for integration. Over time, we will make more data elements available through the API.
