How does On-Demand Vet Care App function?
Well, the functioning of Vet Care Mobile app goes as follows:
Once the user (vet care service provider) loads the app onto their tablets or phones, they need to contact CFL to sign up for integration to their app server. After the configuration and setup are done, the users are then ready to upload designated clients, animals, services, products, as well as their own appointments. They can even load other staffs’ appointments if configured and allowed by Management. Then on, intelligent notes for Client, Animal, and Product records, along with a Drug Withholding Notes are synced. Finally, the service provider is then ready to head out to see patients off-site.
Usually, a particular staff member owns the device, however, the app is often designed in a manner to be “Staff Agnostic” on a device, this way data loading is dynamic for staff that logs in. Hence, it helps in facilitating support for a number of communal tablets at charging bay in the organization, despite their practice branch location. This allows Vets to pick any device, log in, and sync as they head out to farm or house calls. As the bills & other data is synced to the server, then they display under “Mobile Bills” section for individual review or edit prior to finalization. Such is the workflow that each invoice needs to be opened by the office staff for reviewing and only when it is completed and posted.
