Vetcove provides paid services to vendors so that our platform can stay completely free to independently-owned hospitals. Our paid services include manufacturer-direct product listings, payment processing, loyalty program logistics, cash back promotions, and mobile CRM tools. These companies and vendors pay Vetcove to use our tools, when you buy their products on Vetcove, or when you participate in their programs.
Additionally, Vetcove provides Inner Circle services and support to corporate-owned hospital groups and organizations that have needs beyond those of an independent vet practice. These include corporate purchasing guidance, centralized data, and spend management tools. These groups pay Vetcove an access fee starting at $100 per month for each hospital location using Vetcove's corporate platform.
In 2018, our veterinary organizations face an increasingly challenging economic climate. At our own practice, we’ve experienced rising cost of inventory, resale competition from online pharmacies, and increasingly frugal customers. It has never been more challenging to run a profitable veterinary practice as it is today, and we don’t believe veterinary organizations should be taxed any further than we already are. Vetcove’s model lets corporations foot the bill so that our hospitals and veterinary nonprofits can enjoy the benefits of Vetcove completely free.
We get that a lot. In the veterinary industry, you’re used to software vendors that charge exorbitant monthly fees, and offer terrible support for outdated software. We’re different — and we’re proud of it. We don’t think of ourselves as a software company. We’re a group of passionate advocates dedicated to the financial well-being of the veterinarian. Read our story, see our Code of Ethics, and reach out to us if you have any questions. We’re your champion—and we’re here to help.
Selling data is not our business model. Vetcove will never share any identifiable data about your clinic with any third party, for any reason. What you buy, and who you buy from, is kept strictly private—even to our own team. We believe you have a right to absolute privacy, and ensuring the security of all veterinary organizations’ data is our top priority.
Vetcove's Inner Circle includes a number of advanced management features and premium customer support. At this time, the Inner Circle is reserved for select nonprofit partner veterinary organizations and paying corporate hospital groups. If you'd like access to Inner Circle features for your group, or you're a member of a partner organization with Inner Circle access and would like more information, get in touch with us via live chat, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
