Covetrus has introduced Ascend – a cloud-based practice management software (PMS) – across the UK, Europe and Asia Pacific.
The company says the system improves efficiency, streamlines internal communication and collaboration, and creates a better experience for staff and clients.
Ascend brings multiple systems together into one platform and has also been developed to leverage preferred third-party integrations, from scheduling and diagnostics, to billing and insurance and retail sales.
Covetrus also says the system will be easier to use and save time, factors identified as a clear need among PMS users in a joint Covetrus and Vet Times survey where 76% of respondent expressed a desire for a PMS that was easier to use and saved time1.
Georgia Wraight, executive vice president and president of global technology solutions at Covetrus, said: “Ascend’s user-friendly cloud platform was designed using customer insights and feedback, combined with Covetrus’ technological and industry expertise.
“With Ascend, we are thrilled to provide a one-stop shop on an intuitive platform that offers unparalleled functionality, along with the freedom to work from anywhere, at any time, on any device.”
