BETTER VETERINARY LIFE AND BUSINESS

Our Mission and Purpose

We believe independent practices provide enormous value to their communities and the humans managing them, deserve a fulfilling, rewarding life. 
Which is why we’re on a mission to help you succeed.

DYNAMIC SOLUTIONS

The story continues

We’re constantly evolving, adapting, and refining our products and services, and have been since 2004. Have a scroll to see some of the milestones we’re proud to have reached along the way. 

2004
The Index is built

Having identified the need for more meaningful veterinary business intelligence, our developers built the Index; an easy, convenient way for leaders to measure, monitor and manage clinical output, team performance and client trends.

2009
Platinum Academy is launched

Our very first Platinum cohort began their 2 year journey with us in 2009. Due to the success it created for members, further development was sought and so we developed the Mastermind Academy which is still going strong today.

2012
PMS Data Collection Automated

Harnessing new technology, we were able to automate the process of collecting clients PMS data. This saved so much time for us as well as our clients, and allowed us to serve many more practice owners with Index. 

2013
First Vet Dynamics Conference

Our very first 3-day Vet Dynamics Conference was held, which was the first time our entire community of members came together. 

2014
Practice brokering began

To help owners achieve better exit outcomes, we used our vast connections and began offering a brokering service to independents.

Our first Vet Academy launched

Platinum Academy celebrates 10 Years

A huge celebration to recognise 10 years of the Platinum Academy, through which, more than 250 independent practice owners transformed life and leadership in their veterinary journeys.

2020
The Index goes cloud-based

Our Index became cloud based, enhancing the user experience, saving more time, and improving speed, performance and security. 

2020

2021
