Have you ever seen super talented inventory managers and wondered, “how on earth did they get so knowledgeable?”
If you are a new inventory manager (or even an established one!), it can be really frustrating to get the training, help, and support you need!
And if you’re newer to managing inventory, seeing all of the numbers and unsure of exactly what you should be doing can be totally intimidating.
You see people managing their inventory who seem to be no-stress and “living the dream”… but for the life of you, you can’t figure out how they actually run a smooth, profitable inventory system.
You’d love to get the same results, but how? Do they have something you don’t? Nope!
You can do it, too. Just imagine…

Nicole is a True Asset
I have worked extensively with Nicole as she launched Veterinary Care Logistics. I have had the privilege to do multiple seminars and consultations with her. Every interaction has produced a sense of relief from customers whom she has helped realize that inventory is manageable. She is very honest and professional with her approach. She has saved many of my client’s money through decreasing their cost of goods sold. Doing so is not as simple as it may sound, there are many factors to managing COGS and Nicole is able to bundle those factors together for a great result. Nicole stays on top of current trends and industry news so she can apply those to your hospitals’ needs as necessary. She comes prepared with workbooks and resources and leaves you with specific direction and follow through. She is my personal resource for anything inventory and industry practice.
Nicole is a true asset to any clinic who is ready to be efficient, organized and save money and I highly recommend her.
So, who even am I?
I'm your teacher, Nicole Clausen, CSSGB.
With over a decade of experience in the veterinary industry and with responsibilities ranging from receptionist, technician assistant, lead receptionist, inventory manager, and operations manager, I know the veterinary industry like the back of my hand! It's my home and where my passion lies.
A common theme I've noticed in hospitals is lack of inventory management, clarity, and control, whereas my focus was to create a viable, profitable system where there was only a void before.
Veterinary Care Logistics was born out of the demand by several industry leaders to utilize my inventory system as a model throughout the country, and I am so excited and honored to bring that opportunity to you!
Since inception I have authored several publications, including controlled substance management protocols and policy & procedure manuals. My clients include national & regional corporations, hospital groups, and private veterinary hospitals. In addition, I have spoken at several different industry sponsored conferences on inventory management.
So even if you're new to inventory management, or have been trying to figure it out for years, Count Me In(ventory) will become your online academy for creating the kind of inventory and practice you've always dreamed of having.
