BELLEVUE, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Petabyte Technology (“Petabyte”), a leading veterinary software company, announced that it has raised $15 million through a Series B Funding Round. The funding includes investments from National Veterinary Associates (“NVA”) (a global veterinary care leader), UNAVETS (a European-based veterinary group), Norwest Ventures Partners, Halle Capital Management, and Relevance Ventures. The investment is expected to power Petabyte’s continued growth as well as industry partnerships to modernize the veterinary industry through advanced software solutions designed to improve the lives of veterinary teams everywhere.
“Petabyte’s mission has always been to simplify veterinary operations so doctors and their staff can spend more time caring for pets and their families. Over the last few years, we’ve really seen that mission become a reality through our suite of software solutions,” said Michael Hyman, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Petabyte. “This funding will allow us to collaborate with some of the most progressive industry partners to dramatically transform the hospital experience via technology for the entire veterinary community.”
Petabyte revolutionizes patient management for veterinary hospitals through its suite of software solutions. Rhapsody, the cloud-based Practice Information Management System (PIMS), and Boop, the mobile client companion app, include features such as virtual check-in, on-the-go communications, a built-in payment system, and comprehensive wellness plans.
The backbone of rhapsody is clean data (standardized by Petabyte’s proprietary migration technology, The Matcher) which also powers Petabyte Analytics, an enterprise-level analytics platform used in tandem with rhapsody or as a standalone tool.
By building such innovative elements into their software, Petabyte streamlines workflows and significantly reduces administrative burdens, enabling hospitals to deliver exceptional care to pets and their families.
