Run your practice from anywhere, anytime. ezyVet’s cloud-based solution is available 24/7/365 from any device with a web browser. You can easily access ezyVet from your smartphone (iPhone or Android), tablet, laptop or desktop computer (Windows, macOS or Chromebook).
It is very important to ensure that your IT/Technology infrastructure is suitable for ezyVet to run optimally after implementation go-live. Below are our suggested hardware requirements.
1. Internet Requirements
Internet is one of the most important components for a cloud-based application like ezyVet. You will require a quality internet connection (in terms of stability) that is properly filtered with a reliable provider. If you believe your internet connection does not meet these requirements, please either contact your IT provider or the ezyVet team to discuss options.
1.1 Minimum download speed:
- Small practice: 5-10mbps will suffice
- Large practice / hospitals: we recommend 20-30mbps+
If you have any of the issues below, please let us know before you go live with ezyVet, they can nearly always be sorted out.
- Drops out regularly
- Pages load slowly
- Speed test is less than 5 Mbps Download Speed
2. Computer Requirements
As ezyVet is a cloud-based product, the performance requirements of the device are minimal, however, the newer and faster the devices are, the faster ezyVet will operate. If you are replacing any devices, we recommend you consider the following minimum specifications:
i5 Processor or i7 recommended (the newer/faster, the better).
4 GB recommended for Windows.
4 GB recommended for macOS.
2.3 Operating System
Windows 10 or higher, or the latest version of macOS.
An IDEXX VetConnect PLUS account allows you a 2-way integration with the IDEXX VetLab Station from any operating system.
However, please note the compatibility requirements for the following integrations:
- Whilst Abaxis Fuse allows for a two-way integration, if you don’t have Abaxis Fuse and would like to use the Abaxis one-way integration, please note it is only compatible with Windows 7.
- Both the Heska one-way and two-way integration are compatible with Window 7 or newer.
No specific requirements, although solid state drive recommended.
22-inch screens or larger are recommended for ease of use due to quantity of information being displayed.
2.6 Other Software & Applications
Adobe PDF Reader and Microsoft Office (or similar) recommended for further analysis of reporting.
2.7 Antivirus Software
We recommend using an antivirus that is not too invasive of the web browser.
3. Backup Internet (Optional)
It can be a good idea to consider a backup internet connection via a cell phone network provider. These are fairly inexpensive and provide instant backup if your internet ever had an issue. You could also use a data plan from your smartphone device as a backup.
It is not expensive these days to purchase routers that are suitably built to have cellular redundancy and automatically switch to this where required. Please see your IT provider for details.
