Digital Transformation Leaders in the Animal Health Industry
We provide cutting-edge animal health solutions that revolutionize livestock management and pet care
By the year 2050, the world will need to double food production to feed our rapidly growing population. Meeting this challenge requires using advanced, more efficient animal health solutions that can streamline and improve the current procedures and processes used in the maintenance of livestock farms, ranches, feed yards and companion animal healthcare operations.
Animal health is at the center of two well-established sectors; farm animal health and companion animal health. The increasing demand for food safety and produce traceability has put pressure on farm, ranch and feed yard owners to employ more innovative methods for effective monitoring and tracking of livestock health data. Aside from the food safety compliance aspect, better livestock and facility management means more, higher quality meat and dairy production and ultimately, better profitability.
Despite the drawbacks and problems associated with manual data collection techniques and paper based processes, farm and ranch owners are forced to utilize these aged old methods because they don’t have access to a technology partner who understands their business and processes well enough to help them digitize and optimize their operations.
The same problem is faced by the pet care industry, since companion animal health tracking requires immense attention and concentration. Finding the right grooming and nutritional facts about your pet, tracking their daily food intake and exercise regimen, scheduling and conducting regular health check-ups, keeping track of their symptoms, medications, vaccinations and their effects, is a daunting proposition, especially since this information needs be stored in such a manner where it can be easily referenced and tracked, and can be utilized to glean valuable insights into better companion animal health & care.
That’s where we come in. With our knowledge of the animal health industry, and our extensive expertise within animal healthcare services in the digital sphere, we can help you optimize and better manage your animal health procedures and practices, whether you’re a farm or ranch owner, animal caretaker, feed yard operator or animal care specialist.
Digitizing Animal Healthcare Services
We understand the importance of using technology in animal health management. Our industry leading, mobile based solutions are specifically designed to help farmers, ranchers and animal care specialists overcome the challenges they face in livestock and companion animal healthcare and management. Having served as the technology partner of some of the top players in the animal health industry, we have been able to develop innovative digital solutions that support farm animal owners and animal care specialists in their operations, by optimizing animal healthcare management practices and providing a better, more efficient way of recording, tracking and analyzing animal health data (for e.g. cattle record keeping or pig health care data), to gain actionable insights and drive better decision making, helping them improve ranch and feed yard productivity and profitability, as well as animal longevity.
Having built multi-platform, mobile and web based solutions for cattle record keeping and pig health care, in collaboration with leading animal healthcare companies like Zoetis, Merial & PetZam and livestock organizations like the American Angus Association and Agri Beef, we are intimately familiar with the problems faced by ranch and feed yard owners and animal health specialists, and the type of solutions they need to overcome those problems.
