Save time and collect electronic client signatures remotely
Join the paperless movement and say goodbye to unnecessary printing. Introducing our newly updated feature, remote signatures. Providing your clients the freedom to sign any documents from the comfort of their own home, creating a seamless, contactless experience.
A single visit to a veterinary practice can generate the need for printing several different forms, not only having an impact on the environment but also wasting valuable time and money.
One of the main drivers behind these enhancements was allowing practices to become more productive, efficient, and cost-effective.
