Danish consulting firm praQtice has launched a subsidiary in the United Kingdom. The new company, praQtice UK Ltd, aims to offer a range of consulting services aimed specifically at the veterinary industry.
Over the last decade praQtice claims to have positioned itself as the leading consultancy agency in the veterinary sector in Denmark and Norway and concentrates on six key business areas: strategy and business development, marketing, employee and manager development, finance, research and analysis, and training.
The company also claims to have “redefined the way veterinary practices operate, enabling them to become a modern service provider for the 21st century”.
The company has worked with a wide range of practices and benefits from an in-house marketing and communications department, which has already achieved considerable success in the UK when, last year, it helped a Scottish client win the VMA for the best marketing concepts for veterinary practice.
Business developer Helen Kington said: “This will be great for UK vets, largely it has been the same group of consultants working with the same thoughts and ideas for the last 10 years. We need to look beyond our borders in order to evolve.
“In Scandinavia you can only put a mark up of five per cent on your drugs, this does not make you a profit. Thus they have learnt to be much better in delivering and pricing for their professional service, I am sure we can learn a lot from them. What we also see all over Europe is that practices are getting bigger and bigger. But as the practices grow, so does the number of problems and the partner’s income rarely follow.
“PraQtice is about quality of life and allowing yourself to dream, we then give you the tools along with helping you through the implementation to make those dreams and ambitions come true.”
