About Us

Comprehensive practice management solution for equine reproduction and hospitals, large animal clinics, solo vets, racetracks, and more.

Revolutionizing Animal Practice Management

Since launching in 2002, Wise Option has provided veterinarians across the country with a highly productive way to manage their practices. Our founder and CEO Eduardo Almeida first developed Wise Option’s software as part of his IT master’s degree thesis.

During his studies, Eduardo noticed a real need in the horse industry for a program that could manage appointments, customers, and billing, while allowing veterinarians and their staff more time to focus on what they do best.

After developing relationships with local equine businesses, Eduardo witnessed how staff members were forced to deal with endless paperwork and carry out repetitive tasks. By February of 2002, Eduardo had launched his solution – Ranch Managers. Over the past 20 years, Edurdo’s vision has seen incredible success.

Eduardo took the first steps towards becoming a Microsoft Certified Partner, and as part of this process Ranch Managers was renamed Wise Option. By 2006, Wise Option had been declared a Microsoft Certified Partner – an accomplishment that we remain incredibly proud of.

We went on to expand our packages, including launching a hospital module. This development laid the foundation of what is now one of our most impressive packages, combining treatment lists, complex task packaging, lab integrations, and much more.

Making life as straightforward as possible for our customers is the motivating factor behind the new developments and additions we make to our software.

In 2017, we moved Wise Option to the cloud, significantly broadening the possibilities of what we can do and who we can do it for. Today, we are proud and grateful to have firmly established ourselves as one of the market’s most comprehensive practice management solutions for vets.
