The only way is Essex

The only way is Essex

2nd September 2015

Several mixed/equine practices based in Essex are installing Eclipse this autumn, including Blaircourt, and House and Jackson.

"I must admit it's a nice change to be working locally and not travelling quite so far to our newest customers" said Managing Director, Jeanne Razzell. "In the last 18 months, we first had the Dutch installation and then new installations in Ireland, all the while continuing to work with our non-veterinary, thoroughbred-related clients such as Tattersall and Weatherbys."

However, the shorter journey times may not last long with new enquiries arriving from all points within the UK and Ireland. "I've no doubt we'll be back on the road/standing in line at Stansted again very soon"

Arundel Equine vets join the Eclipse family

Arundel Equine vets join the Eclipse family

7th April 2015

One of the oldest dedicated equine practices in the country, the Arundel Equine Hospital this month became the latest clinic to adopt Eclipse. Uniquely, Eclipse is one integrated practice management system, complete with PACS, lab and pharmacy for clinic-based staff, together with a Mobile app enabling ambulatory vets to carry timely information with them wherever they are working. Even the notoriously fickle communications links 'enjoyed' in West Sussex are no barrier, as Eclipse Mobile is very effective even offline when no signal is possible.

"We definitely chose the right week for Go Live", said Jeanne. "The weather has been absolutely fabulous and our team have enjoyed tremendous hospitality from all at Arundel Equine. We are most grateful for everyone's patience and hope that they enjoy all the new facilities Eclipse provides in equine practice."

New Project Underway for Weatherbys

New Project Underway for Weatherbys

6th February 2015

Brian has been very busy lately working on a major new project for Weatherbys. When complete, the new Bloodstock Information System will streamline much of the complex processes involved in publishing catalogue pedigrees, results reporting and online services provided to Weatherbys clients.

Continuously in business since 1770, Weatherbys is famous for its accurate registration of British and Irish thoroughbred births throughout the centuries, with copies of the General Stud Book dating back hundreds of years on show, along with many other items of royal and racing memorabilia.

The project will take more than a year to complete from conception through to design and development, but will greatly enhance the quality and expand the range of services available to clients of Weatherbys bloodstock division.

Records broken at Tattersalls October Yearling Sales

Records broken at Tattersalls October Yearling Sales

9th October 2014

Tattersalls' new Repository system, designed for the prestigious 2014 October Book 1 sale by Brian and the team at Eclipse Veterinary Software, has received many plaudits. Uploading images to the Repository in advance is much easier now and viewing lots very straightforward for vets commissioned by clients considering purchases.

"We wanted to ensure that it wasn't a chore in future," said Eclipse Technical Director, Brian Whitt. "We know that burning CDs and trying to get them sorted out when animals arrive at Park Paddocks is not ideal, so we have designed the system to make uploading Dicom images or videos much less time-consuming."

October Book 1 broke the records again in 2014 with turnover up 13% on 2013 and more than 79,000 guineas changing hands during the three days of the sale. The highest price of 2.6m guineas was paid for a Galileo colt, and three lots topped the million mark on the final day.
