Avid Plc and PETtrac Database - Stand 413

25 Years in Microchipping

2017 marks the 25th anniversary of AVID Plc and in that time quite a lot has changed, not least the introduction of compulsory microchipping of dogs in 2016.

Before the introduction of compulsory microchipping, AVID released the new microchip registration website for use by vet practices, rescue centres, dog wardens and trained implanters.

The new version of this system has been very well received and veterinary practices using it have remarked on how quick and simple it is to register a microchip.

In October there was a new release of the mobile app for Android and iOS devices, which allows veterinary practices to register a microchip and also retrieve details for a microchipped pet when a stray is found.

One of the biggest areas which practices are looking at is the transfer of microchip details from breeders to the new keeper. AVID has a system which allows the breeder to transfer them at no charge when completed online. This simple and effective system allows veterinary practices to register the microchips to the breeder, whilst then allowing the breeder to take control of the changes from that point.

Coming soon will be a new version of the popular AVID MiniTracker which includes bluetooth connectivity – speak to us if you would like to know more about this and availability.

For more details contact the AVID sales team on 0800 652 7 977.

guavavet recruitment app launces at BSAVA

With increased competition (there are 4,954 practices in the UK) and more vets actively seeking an improved work-life balance, times are certainly challenging in UK practice recruitment. The sector is ripe for change, and the time is right for guavavet - a new app-driven recruitment service launched at BSAVA.

By matching vets with vacancies, guavavet looks set to revolutionise the way vets and practices find each other, just like online dating! Both parties specify required criteria (locum / part-time / full-time, location, rotas, special interests, species etc.) and the app matches skilled candidates with suitable roles. By ensuring a great fit up front, recruitment is quick, easy and cost effective, improving retention rates and building strong teams.

Aubrey Kumm, the app's innovator and company MD explains more. "Extensive research confirmed that vets want more flexibility when it comes to finding jobs and working in practice, and a recruitment app offers the most flexibility of all! Cutting out agency fees, time and quotas mean the best vets choose the right jobs for them. For a quick, easy and convenient solution, choose guavavet!"
