We are really very excited to announce that Cliniko can now be used in multiple locations, sites, businesses... whatever you call them. You can add a new business to your account very simply by going to Settings > Business Information and clicking the shiny new "Add Business" button.
Once you have done this, you should probably set up your practitioners availability for your new business. You can do this by adding new practitioners, or editing the schedule of existing ones. Practitioners can work at one or more businesses. This can be done in Settings > Users & Practitioners.
Once you have done this you are ready to start booking in patients. It's really easy to toggle between different businesses on the calendar with a feature we are calling "toggle between different businesses on the calendar".
That's pretty much it, it's really that easy. All of your invoices, payments, expenses and reports have also been updated to take advantage of this functionality. Your mobile and tablet apps have also been updated to let you view and create your appointments for any of your businesses.
Now I know some of you won't be using this new feature and are probably feeling a bit left out... well we have something for you too. We have also changed the way provider numbers and other practitioner specific reference numbers work. Previously you could just have one number for each practitioner, well now that has changed. You can have as many provider/reference numbers as you like for each practitioner, you can even set them up specific to each business if you are using the new feature. This is great for those of you that wanted practitioner ABN numbers or similar on your invoices. You will find this in the practitioner page at Settings > Users & Practitioners, then click a practitioner.
We are really excited about this new update to Cliniko. It is always a risk when you add a significant new feature to a software system that you are also going to introduce complexity... we think Cliniko is still as simple as ever and now even more powerful.
