UPDATE – We’re Upgrading Our Practice Management Software & Online Booking Has Been Temporarily Disabled

Hall Vet Surgery & Vets at Amaroo look forward to launching our new software system on Monday the 28th of June.

Over the past 3 months we have been preparing for both Hall Veterinary Surgery & Vets at Amaroo to make to switch to a brand new software system. This change will give us access to more advanced, robust and future focused technology and ensure that we can spend more time doing what we do best – helping you care for your fur babies!

So what does this change mean for you?
We expect this upgrade will improve your experience with us by reducing the technical ‘drop outs’ of our phone and computer systems, especially at our Amaroo branch. The new system will also allow you access to a new and improved online pet portal, a place where you can view your pet’s vaccination status, book appointments and access documents like invoices from previous visits. All of your pets existing medical history will remain active and accessible in the new system and we will continue to be sharing records between Hall and Amaroo for your convenience.

We hope that the transition will cause minimal disruption to our clients but do ask for your patience with us whilst we navigate and get comfortable with our new system over the coming weeks.

Key dates/notes:

• Our existing online booking portal has now been closed. We look forward to providing you with a link for the new and improved portal soon.
• Team training is taking place this week (Monday 21st June – Saturday 26th June), with closure of business during lunch hours daily. We apologise for any inconvenience.
• The new software system will be launched next week (Monday 28th June), please be patient with our team whilst we navigate the new system. We will endeavour to keep disruptions to a minimum but as with any major change some technical niggles are to be expected.
