ZooEasy is ready for Windows 10

Windows-10-LogoSince the rollout of Windows 10, more and more people use this new version. Our test showed that ZooEasy Stand Alone works great on Windows 10. You don’t have to do anything extra to make it work. After you have installed the new Windows, the program will work immediately.

Create a backup
Although we didn’t experience any trouble while updating the computer to Windows 10, we always advise to create a backup of all your files. Keep this backup on a different place than your own computer, like an external hard disk or USB stick. If anything goes wrong, you can just re-install your computer and continue using your own database that you’ve maintained with care.

Microsoft Edge
We also have good news for users of ZooEasy Online. We also did a browser test with Microsoft Edge, the successor of Internet Explorer. After the installation of Windows 10, Edge will automatically become the new browser, unless you have chosen another one. All features of the program work well, so we don’t expect there will be any problem for using ZooEasy Online when you will be using this new internet browser.

Errors? Contact us
Do you experience any issues after all? Please contact us. Tell us which error has occurred and which version of Windows you’re using. You can also make a screenshot, so we can try to mimic the error. We will try to fix this for you.

Doris Knoester and her Australian Shepherd

More and more dog breeding associations use ZooEasy Online for their administration. Doris Knoester is the manager for the Australian Shepherd Club Netherlands (ASCN). “With ZooEasy we now have a nice tool to analyse and register all the data.”

Great references
The club has joined ZooEasy in 2011. Doris Knoester: “We were using GSC Datamanager, but we were looking for a complete package that would give us more certainty for the future regarding the continuity and development of more functionalities of the database.” Doris then asked other breeding associations for more information. “I liked the way ZooEasy looks from the start and it had great references.” The ASCN uses ZooEasy mostly to monitor the health data of the dogs, like DNA results and hip researches. Doris Knoester: “It is also nice that the program calculates all the kinship and inbreeding percentages.”

User-friendly
As the manager, Doris Knoester is responsible for the settings of the program and she is the intermediate between ZooEasy and the club. As a preparation, she followed the course of ZooEasy Online: “In the beginning I was reluctant: I didn’t want to do anything wrong! In practice it was better than I expected. It is really user-friendly.”

“A good preparation is essential”
Doris Knoester has an important tip for associations who like to start with ZooEasy. “A good preparation is essential. Which data would you like to report and what should it look like? We have experienced that with double registered dogs and nests in our old database. If you have to correct that afterwards, it is a whole lot of work. ZooEasy has helped us a lot with this.”

“ZooEasy for the members”
The ASCN aims to open the ZooEasy database for all their members as soon as all the data is complete and up-to-date. Doris Knoester: “ZooEasy helps us to get more understanding of our population and we hope that in the future this information will be available for our breeding members. Just a little while ago I presented ZooEasy at our breeders meeting. The people were really enthusiastic and pleasantly surprised with this many data in the database!”Vo
