GroupDVM reported today that is has registered its 5,000th member.
The Denver-based online veterinary purchasing group was launched in July 2010 to provide veterinary professionals with exclusive deals directly from animal health care manufacturers and authorized distributors.
“The rapid growth and enthusiasm that we are seeing within the veterinary community surrounding GroupDVM is confirmation of our belief that the independent veterinarian needs and wants a voice in the market,” said Daryl Schraad, president of GroupDVM. “In addition, we provide product manufacturers and authorized animal health distributors a tremendous platform to offer their products and services directly to our members, which creates a win-win situation for everyone.”
The daily and weekly deals feature 25 percent to 70 percent discounts on veterinary products and services, as well as reduced pricing on industry events such as conference registration fees.
Each deal is available for a limited time and requires a minimum number of members to participate before it can be redeemed. As a result, GroupDVM is able to guarantee partnering product manufacturers and authorized distributors a pre-determined number of sales for every deal offered, according to the company.
