NEWS – OpenVPMS acquires Vertical Connect (effective 1 August 2021) joining forces to develop, promote and support customers with the OpenVPMS Veterinary Practice Management Solution.

Cyber security is everyone’s business Do not underestimate the value of the data you hold. If accessed by the wrong people, information about your staff or clients can be used to commit fraud in their names, and pose a threat to your credibility. If your data is lost or compromised, it can be very difficult […]
If you are currently using a OpenVPMS managed cloud based service your database and server backups are managed automatically and your server is completely secure. If you’re running a local OpenVPMS server it is critical that your local I.T. provider has setup suitable onsite and offsite backup strategies and security in order to protect your data […]
As of OpenVPMS 1.8 a new feature “Letterhead & Document Control” was introduced. This new feature gave practices greater control of the formatting and structure of their financial templates allowing many things to be customised without having to learn the Jasper Reports editing tool which has a very steep learning curve. For many Practices there wasn’t a real […]
"We have been using Open VPMS for close to 10 years in our practice, and have found the team at OpenVPMS to be invaluable in getting the most out of the software. They are prompt and patient with our requests for help. In particular they havebeen excellent in facilitating upgrades, ironing out bugs and generally being incredibly helpful - there are many improvements we have made over the last couple of years that we couldn't have done without her expertise. Highly recommend the OpenVPMS Team if you wish to get the most out of your Open VPMS software."
"Tony and his team designed and installed our first server and operating environment 12 years ago and have been with us ever since advising on major system upgrades, OpenVPMS updates and secondary provider interfaces such as Smartflow Sheet and Cubex. Our practice is heavily reliant on IT systems and the OpenVPMS team have been a fantastic support. "
"We recently used the services of Vertical Connect to assist with the implementation of a new Patient Reminder system. Many changes were necessary and the support that OpenVPMS provided was invaluable. My queries were always responded to in a timely fashion and their thoroughness and follow up was excellent. Since the implementation of the reminder system OpenVPMS has become my ‘go to’ place for any software problems and they have never let me down."
"We have used OpenVPMS for a number of years. They have provided us with great support. We are not the IT experts - they are. They work with us to help us achieve the outcomes we need."
"I first came into contact with Tony De Keizer in 1989 when we became only the 2nd veterinary practice in WA to computerise. Initially just using the Network software for accounts I was brutally introduced into a world with its own language and jargon, the computer age. Thanks to Tony, who incidentally has been the only computer guru I have even partially understood, we moved on to full integration 18 months after the accounts package, with case histories and the whole deal. It has been a love-hate relationship for me but from the outset I fully realised the obvious benefits of computerisation and whilst I still struggle with typing, I really value all it can achieve in the hands of my younger staff members and even myself. Through all this, the transition to Open VPMS in the December of 2007, two separate Zepto virus attacks in 2016 and now in the twilight of my career, I have really enjoyed, no, clung on to Tony De Keizer as the most knowledgeable person in his field and a shining light in all things computer. Like the local hardware shop before the advent of Bunnings, he always had/has an answer to my every question and I could not value his input more highly. I wholeheartedly recommend Tony and OpenVPMS without qualification."
“We have worked with OpenVPMS for over 10 years. On every occasion they have promptly turned our problem into a solution, They are rock solid reliable - just what you need to manage one of your greatest assets - your practice management system and client records. Thanks, OpenVPMS!”
"We have been using the services of OpenVPMS since we opened nearly 5 years ago. In that time they have helped us any and every time we have needed it. They regularly help us get the most out of our software, and are especially supportive during upgrades. Can't speak highly enough about the team who both go above and beyond whenever we need them. Their knowledge and enthusiasm for the products they support makes our working lives so much easier. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them."
