With over 100 user-requested improvements and brand-new features, your Cornerstone Software is now more versatile than ever.

Here are just five of the new ways you can improve everyday work flows and deliver high-quality care:

  1. View and share diagnostic results faster: We’ve put VetConnect PLUS right on the Patient Clipboard.
  2. Order IDEXX diagnostic supplies directly through your software.
  3. Spend less time resolving “Not Requested” test results.
  4. Schedule appointments more easily: Users wanted darker grid lines and improved hovering, and we delivered.
  5. Set a new standard for urine sediment analysis with the SediVue Dx Urine Sediment Analyzer—and reduce lost and incorrect charges.

Cornerstone 8.5 NEXT is rolling out now and may already be sitting on your server. Here’s how you can tell when a new version is ready to install. You can also visit the Cornerstone resources page for release notes, installation tips, and more.

We’re taking the Cornerstone User Conference on the road

The Cornerstone User Conference Road Show will include CE-certified user group meetings and master classes for advanced users, local Cornerstone dinners, and lots of peer-to-peer networking opportunities. We will hit over 70 North American cities next year – and it’s all free!

And taking it all on the road makes it easier for you and your colleagues to attend. In fact, we expect to reach 8 times the number of practices and users that typically participate in the conference.

Taking the conference on the road and making it free is one way we’re investing in improving your Cornerstone Software experience. We’ve also:

  • Delivered more software upgrades in the past two years than all other server-based software suppliers combined.
  • Improved the installation experience so you can minimize downtime
  • Beefed up customer support so you can get faster access to expert help
  • Provided 22 hours of free Cornerstone core training at idexx.com/cstraining

Watch for events coming to your area. We hope to see you on the road!
