VetTools and PetTools=VINx
Have you looked at VINx? VINx is part of the VIN family and is a program that integrates with your practice management software with tools and services focused on streamlining your practice management, enhancing patient care, and strengthening client relationships. VetTools and PetTools are two components of VINx.

VetTools enriches your client communication and improves efficiency across your practice. The VetTools system includes VetConfirm to confirm appointments, VetClout which helps to strengthen your online presence, and VetRecords to reference your practice’s records from anywhere that you have an internet connection. You can link your practice management software with the VetTools system. PetTools strengthens bonds with your clients and empowers them to be active participants in their pet's health. Clients can schedule appointments, print vaccination certificates, and view their pet’s medical records.

If you are attending NAVC, stop by the VINx booth (booth 2741) and take a look at what VINx can do for your practice!
