Believe it or not, data is the cornerstone of a healthy organization. In this 2-part presentation, learn how to manage all of the information from the minute an animal comes into your shelter, through veterinary care, behavior training, foster homes, kennels onsite, marketing materials, to the final outcome and beyond. This presentation looks at software and data systems utilized every day by Austin Pets Alive! to keep so many moving pieces in communication through end-of-day reporting, overnight data entry and multiple checks and balances. Visualize how data can improve the care of your animals and provide you with vital reporting necessary to improve your organization. This presentation was recorded at the 2016 American Pets Alive! Conference.
