Backed by NexTec and Acumatica, VetCare Canada Scales Nationally
About VetCare Canada
VetCare Canada acquires and operates veterinary practices, helping owners who are ready to transition out. The company operates multiple locations and is expanding rapidly. To scale efficiently, VetCare sought a financial management application that supports its complex multi-entity operations model. A comprehensive search led the organization to select NexTec Group and Acumatica Cloud ERP.
“We were using an accounting software application built on Microsoft Dynamics GP, but we found it was not scalable — it simply couldn’t keep up with our growth,” explains Julien Gilbert, Corporate Controller for VetCare. “We needed a complete technology solution that would support our entire operation and scale with us as we grow.”
VetCare engaged a large consulting firm to assist with the selection of their new ERP. The firm identified five viable ERP contenders for VetCare, including Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central, Oracle NetSuite, Sage Intacct, Infor and Acumatica.
“We seriously considered all five,” says Gilbert. “But ultimately, we chose Acumatica. Acumatica offers the broad functionality we wanted in a single solution, including strong intercompany functionality, automatic balancing entries and the ability to integrate with our practice management software.”
