London-based software company ClearCourse Partnership has acquired Practice Point, the owner and provider of the Assisi veterinary practice management system.
Assisi is designed to integrate into practices including small animal, farm and equine. Its core components include e-billing, integrated payments, online booking, reporting, and maintaining client and patient records, all accessible through a mobile app.
Assisi is currently installed at 181 veterinary practice sites across the UK and Ireland, in a variety of practice types including small independents and large vet consortiums.
Gerry Gualtieri, chief executive of ClearCourse, said: “We are thrilled to welcome Practice Point and its Assisi platform to ClearCourse. The deal comes at an exciting time in Assisi’s journey, with a growing customer base and expanding products. It also provides opportunities to further improve and enhance its interface and optimise the user-experience. ClearCourse is well suited to support the continued growth of Assisi, with identified pathways for integration with software solutions from within the Group.”
Gary Pender, co-founder of Crewe-based Practice Point, added: “The team at Practice Point are excited to join the ClearCourse portfolio of companies. Being part of the group will give us access to greater marketing and technical expertise allowing for a rapid development of our product road map. The marketing opportunities facilitated by the expert team at Clear Course will allow us to move to the next stage as a PMS supplier.”
Mark Lafferty, Practice Point co-founder, said: “The Practice Point management team will remain with the organisation, as will our industry-leading support team. We feel the future is very bright for us, Assisi and our clients.”
The financial terms of the deal are undisclosed.
