Share

Covetrus® (NASDAQ: CVET), a global leader in animal-health technology and services, today introduced Ascend—a powerful, cloud-based Practice Management software (PMS) built to enable veterinary practices across the United Kingdom, EMEA and Asia Pacific. Ascend improves efficiency, streamlines internal communication and collaboration, and creates a better experience for staff and clients.

In today’s high-demand environment, the introduction of Ascend addresses a clear and spoken technological need amongst the veterinary community. In a recent joint Covetrus and Vet Times survey, 76 percent of respondents expressed a desire for a better PMS that is easier-to-use and saves time.1

“At Covetrus, we are constantly listening to our customers and striving to address their needs through innovative technologies that fit seamlessly into their day-to-day operations,” said Georgia Wraight, Executive Vice President and President of Global Technology Solutions at Covetrus. “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.”

Ascend offers a highly visual, dynamic interface that brings multiple systems together into one user-friendly platform - enabling stronger and better internal collaboration, as well as the ability to leverage the power of preferred third-party integrations, from scheduling and diagnostics, to billing and insurance, retail sales, and beyond.

“We chose Covetrus technology because they’re well-known and trusted for their expertise and quality in the practice management space,” said Emily Renton, Clinical Director, Veterinarian and Ascend User. “Ascend is an obvious choice for us and perfect for independent practices looking for a simple system that is intuitive, well-designed and knows how to make a vet’s life easier during the working day. I am so impressed with everything from the visuals, its integrations, how it helps us deal with clients in a smooth manner and how it’s all tied together. It certainly makes for a happier workforce and better collaboration between my staff.”

The introduction of Ascend comes on the heels of the successful beta period of Covetrus Pulse™ , an innovative cloud-based veterinary operating system (vOS) in the United States and Canada that unites the best of Covetrus’ technologies into an all-in-one cloud platform. Covetrus Ascend, like Pulse, is part of Covetrus’ ongoing mission to be the premier provider of ‘Connected Care’ solutions designed to empower veterinarians with care management technologies that help to streamline workflows, save time, and improve outcomes.
