HVMS Cloud Hosting

Leveraging Cloud Services for HVMS

Request Info

Hosting tailored specifically for HVMS by Business Infusions utilizing world class Microsoft Azure data centers.

Use Cloud Hosting Services and forgo an onsite database server and save with no upfront hardware, software licensing, or IT services*

How Does it Work?

The practice/user accesses HVMS through a web browser from any computer. The functionality and look/feel of HVMS are the exact same as if logging in from a local server. Remote access requires a few extra log-in steps for security.

What is the Cost?

The cost is $85/month per revenue generating veterinarian. HVMS takes care of all servers, data backups, virus scanning and intrusion detection. If you are using our credit card processing, we also take care of PCI compliance.

How is it different than having a Server onsite?

The HVMS Cloud Hosting option eliminates the requirement to have a server on your site and the maintenance and upkeep that comes along with that – we take care of everything and all you need is an internet connection.

Can I still use HVMS Tablet Offline?

Yes, tablet mode functions the exact same with the hosted cloud option or the on-premise server option.
