How to cut the cord

For veterinary teams that are looking to save time and increase their productivity, reducing time spent on repetitive tasks is crucial. Luckily for us, advancements in veterinary technology can serve as a virtual assistant, freeing up dozens of hours each week to focus on providing exceptional patient care.

In addition to saving time, providing additional convenience features have been proven to enhance customer service, resulting in increased client satisfaction and loyalty for your clinic. Before we get into how the process works, let’s explore some additional benefits of automating responses for incoming requests.

✓ No more waiting on hold
By placing a self-service client menu on your website, you can eliminate hold times for pet parents, and reduce time spent answering phone calls for your team.

✓ Provide convenience and instant response
This feature can provide the convenience of instant response, enhancing the service experience for everyone involved.

✓ Respond to requests on your time
The vast majority of pet parents – both new and current clients – will visit your website before they call you. When they visit your website, they will be greeted by the self-service menu. Once a request is submitted, you will be notified to follow-up on the pending request when most convenient for you.
