Personalize Your Connections
Two-Way Messaging is the tool you need to engage with your clients regularly. Client loyalty is fostered through ongoing dialogues that are convenient, useful, and personal. By opening a new line of communication with your clients, you can keep them engaged with another channel that creates a personal touch.
A lot can get done over text, but when you need a live view of the patient, turn to Video Chat to strengthen the veterinarian-client bond. Scheduled live video calls can help with more complex situations and deliver personalized care through telemedicine to meet client needs. Integrated directly into the PetDesk platform, Video Chat allows practices to create lasting relationships through Virtual Care visits without introducing new technologies, and with customized onboarding, it’s simple to get up and running.
Maintain Communication & Build Trust
Your clients build loyalty by interacting with your practice.
Two-Way Messaging is the perfect way to maintain communication with clients over time while building trust that you will be there when they need you. Take the guesswork out of routine updates, medication notifications, and negative test results and allow your clients to communicate with you on their time.
With customized clinic training and onboarding for Video Chat, we will have your practice up and running in no time. Clients are supported through customizable how-to templates to help them get started on Video Chat through our 5-star rated Mobile Health App. That means one app for all their pet’s health needs, and they are only a few taps away when they need you.
Increase Clinic Efficiencies
With Two-Way Messaging, your clinic can minimize the excessive time that outgoing calls, missed calls, voicemails, and return calls add to your staff’s day. Using a dedicated virtual number for your clinic, you can send and receive text messages from clients at any time.
This feature is the most direct and discreet way to communicate with your clients about the things that are most important to them – their pets.
Your staff’s time is precious, and two-way text messaging removes the down time between initiating a conversation and waiting for a response. This allows the front desk to deal with more important things – like attending to clients in your clinic. Sign up for Two-Way Messaging to unlock the efficiencies that come with:
- SMS and picture messaging
- Adding a texting button to your client’s app
- Accessing client message histories
- Store and easily input templated messages for frequent communications
- Set up auto-replies for when your clinic is closed
Deliver an In-Clinic Experience, Anywhere
With Video Chat, you determine the best appointment type. Through a clinic triage process, you can evaluate requests and determine the best appointment type: In-Clinic or Video Chat.
Face-to-paw chats can help with more complex situations and deliver personalized care through telemedicine. Because clients use the PetDesk Mobile Health App for their pet health needs, it’s only natural that they access Virtual Care there, too. Don’t overcomplicate your clients’ lives: give them a single app.
