2019 - The year in review

A year has highs and lows, some days are extraordinary and some are just unremarkable, but at the end of a year, it’s good to look back at the year’s accomplishments. At Animana, we did this too - and asked our team what things they thought were extraordinary. From our Developers to Sales, and from Support to Product Management (and everything in between) this is what they told us...

Cutting through the noise (5 tips for good customer service)

We know; you're most at home behind the scenes - whether it's in the operating room, or perhaps monitoring patients. It's not something to be ashamed of as most veterinary professionals are more comfortable with pets than with people - it's what you've trained to do. But let's be honest - we are in a sector that also revolves around people - pet owners. We must ensure that customer service remains high, as this immediately benefits the care of the pet, and in this modern-day, good experiences mean good business. Because we know it's not easy, here are our five tips to help you maintain customer service.

Is the grass really greener?

With the holiday period ending soon, it’s a good opportunity to look forward to the next few months. You may even be wondering “Is the grass greener on the other side?”, wondering how business is at a neighbouring practice – do they have more customers, is their workload lower, do they have a higher turnover? Once you start thinking it can be difficult to let go.
Finding New Opportunities

Theme up for new opportunities

Veterinary companies often put a lot of time, energy, and money into developing and maintaining large national campaigns, and because the theme gets a lot of national attention, it will also create awareness among your customers. So it can be quite smart to "hitch a ride" on the back of the awareness which others are creating.

A fresh mind! See your practice from a different point of view.

There's no such thing as a small change. Sure, creating a user in Animana is easy, but what about everything else associated with a new employee at your practice? They need to learn their way around your practice, and be trained - which impacts other staff involved in their training, which in turn impacts practice productivity - and ultimately - patient care.
