French Connection!

French Connection!

30th August 2012

In August, the Eclipse team met with Babette Schily from the Pau region in France to hear of the interest in Eclipse software from the equine community, which mirrors that in Newmarket.

Pau so British is a "Franglais" association in Pau, near the Pyrenees in France, an area with many connections to our own thoroughbred industry. Blessed with an excellent climate all year round, ideal for training, and with many facilities for the equine owner or breeder, Pau welcomes British visitors to the area for business, leisure and tourism.

The association was formed in October 2011 when it was decided, at the request of the Pau Hunt who wanted to celebrate their 170th anniversary, to organise a party during the International Horse Trials with a "Pau So British" theme.
Other clubs and associations rallied to the flag (Pau Race Course, Pau Golf Club, Pau Yacht Club, The Real Tennis Club, to mention just a few), the object being to make the most of the sporting and cultural events in Pau's calendar and to spotlight the town's historic and sporting connections with Britain.
If you are interested in equine facilities or just in visiting Pau, the best person to get in contact with is Babette Schily, the Business Development Advisor, Conseiller Développement Territorial CCIT Pau Béarn – Conseiller Filière Equine. email: b-schily@pau.cci.fr

Three Counties Successfully Eclipse-d!

Three Counties Successfully Eclipse-d!

23rd April 2012

The newest member of the Eclipse 'family' is Three Counties Equine Equine Hospital at Ripple, near Tewkesbury.

Successfully migrated from their old system, complete with all the history gathered together in one place, there is now a mix of new Mac computers and Windows PCs. "It's horses for courses!" said Eclipse Veterinary Software Ltd's CEO, Jeanne Razzell. "In the clinical areas, using OsiriX for image viewing and equipping some of the vets with high calibre laptops means that it's just a lot easier when people need to work with diagnostic images. Where all that's needed is a screen and a keyboard with Eclipse and Microsoft Office, a Windows PC can be a cost-effective option."

Eclipse is a totally integrated system, presenting everything including lab tests, vets reports, client and billing information, Dicom images – all in one place and accessible via the animal history. Eclipse is easy to learn to use and very consistent in the way the user interface works so the learning curve is less steep for everyday users than similar software, even though the practice management features are more extensive for equine vets than many others.

BASIS goes to Ireland

BASIS goes to Ireland

1st February 2012

Tattersalls Ireland are now 'live' running an updated and improved version of BASIS, the bloodstock auction system developed by the Eclipse team. The February Sale was the first to be run entirely in BASIS from start to finish and the system has proved to be a great success, speeding up several bottlenecks in the processing of information during the day of the sale. Scanning the horse passports at the bloodstock sales desk makes it quick and easy to record who's arrived.

BASIS' first run out was celebrated by a major triumph for Tattersalls Ireland with the first horse in a February Sale going for 100,000 euros. The highest previous price for a horse at this sale, historically, was 80,000 euros.

BASIS is designed specifically to meet the business needs of the Tattersalls organisation. For the Newmarket sales there is also an iPhone and iPad app as an integral part of the system, complete with all the pedigrees plus updates and withdrawals. Sales results are immediately available as horses go through the ring, and the Make-an-Offer facility can also be accessed via the app. Tattersalls catalogues for sales from the year 2000 to date are now available to search and view, saving an awful lot room on that bookshelf!

Three Counties Equine take the plunge!

Three Counties Equine take the plunge!

31st January 2012

RCVS Accredited Three Counties Equine Hospital has a long and illustrious history, with a purpose-built operating theatre and extensive diagnostic imaging facilities, and they are soon to become the newest member of the Eclipse family.

Three Counties are looking forward to a much more streamlined back-office system. They have opted to take the full suite of Practice Management, Lab, Pharmacy and PACS programs, enabling completely integrated operation of the whole practice. The great thing is that all parts of the system have the same look and feel, making it quick to learn and easy-to-use.
"We spent a long time choosing our new IT system", said Practice Manager, Sarah Smith, "and in Eclipse I believe we are bringing in a proven winner!

"The Eclipse team have spent time with us learning about the way the practice works, and are taking care to ensure that as complete a history of clients and animals as possible is brought forward into the new system. They really understand the in's and out's of equine practice and we are delighted to be migrating to a really modern, well-designed software suite. Eclipse PMS and PACS is still developing new features and we will be able to take advantage as these become part of the standard installation", Sarah added.
