‘Roller coaster 2020’ – Why this was your year!

From the moment you join the queue, you are full of expectations. You've already had a good look at the roller coaster, and you have a good idea of how the ride will go... You probably thought precisely the same about the New Year in December 2019 - good intentions, all the plans, and goals set.

How we’re making Animana better for you – November 2020 update

The most important part of building features is understanding what the user is trying to achieve. For that, the Product Management team reaches out to users in a variety of ways. User input, whether via a conference call or filling in a questionnaire, is incredibly valuable to the success of what we are trying to build. Research is a key area we're always looking for help with, so if you see a survey pop-up in Animana - and can spare a few minutes - help us enhance Animana by giving your input.

According to Eurostat, the average UK employee works 42.5 hours a week, one of the highest in Europe. If you're like most veterinarians, you're probably clocking well over this figure, and with that comes stress - the feeling of being 'busy' can cause stress leading to burnout. So below are our tips to improve stress levels in the practice.

How we’re making Animana better for you – October 2020 update

Making changes to software takes time, some more than others. Complex features often require months of development before they are ready to see the light of day. To ensure you don’t have to wait a long time for new functionality in Animana, we tend to work on small improvements at the same time as larger new features. This allows us to provide you with incremental enhancements regularly.
