Every single piece of research done with pet and horse owners, smallholders and farmers alike confirms that the key aspect of their chosen veterinary care provider is convenience. They want to be able to get to and contact the practice quickly. They want the phone answering when they call, and they want to receive advice tailored to the needs of them and their animals. They want to book appointments online, access test results quickly and speak to an expert quickly when needed. It sounds obvious, but so many practices overlook the important tiny details of convenience. In this session we'll explore the customer journey from start to finish and identify touch points where you can make things easier for your clients. This may involve subtle changes to practice protocols, an overhaul of processes or training and coaching for the entire team - whatever it takes to truly put the consumer at the heart of everything you do.
