How can I install OblonVet in the Cloud?
You can use OblonVet as a “cloud based local app” or as an app in your own LAN. With your data in the cloud you can access them anytime from everywhere if you have an internet connection. You do not need any local server infrastructure or a special backup management. You can access your OblonVet from all your locations, from home or anywhere on the way, where your smartphone can provide a hotspot. But OblonVet is not a browser based cloud solution. You always have to install a local desktop app on a Mac or Windows computer.

You’ll first need to run the OblonVet installer on your local server. Then run the installer on each other computer. They will automatically find the server on port 5432.

How do I access my OblonVet from a tablet?

How can I import my existing data?
We can read most everything. But usually we will need to have a look at it, before we can offer you an import procedure. Explain us in a few words, what you have and what you want. We will find a solution. If you can send us a link, to access a backup of your existing data, it’s perfect. Otherwise we will install you a personal link, where you can upload your data. And if you don’t trust this either, we will send you a xml-schema, which will enable your IT to prepare your data for import.
Will I always have to install updates on all my workstations?
No. Download and install the latest version of the software one time. All other workstations will update automatically on startup.
How do I manage several locations and companies?
OblonVet is designed from scratch to manage several mandates, companies, locations, departments and users. And if you don’t need anything of this, you will never see any of it. It will not bother you at all. But maybe later, if you grow… we grow with you.
