" Before the installation of our D2 database, all of our records were kept in paper versions, separate and unrelated to the rest of the aquarium rooms, which meant that certain trends and issues were never picked up on. Now, we have our entire facility working from one easy to use app, everything from fish data to standard operating procedures.
Since the installation of the D2 database, the biggest improvement we have seen is from the ability to neatly collate all the fish data into one easy to use database, which gives us our entire fish data for any period, which helps to get a gauge on animal usage numbers, animal mortalities and morbidities, etc.
Furthermore to this, D2 has allowed us to set up a system in which at the click of a button we can report all of our relevant animal data to our Home Office inspector via email, saving us hours of time by collating it all in to customizable viewing points.
Aside from the vast improvements in record keeping that it brings, D2 has also improved our health screening programme by having a symptoms recording tab allowing us to log illnesses and deaths more accurately and on an individual tank basis or a whole room basis which allows us to look back and pick up trends.
Finally, D2's reporting tools allow us to quickly and conveniently create usage reports of all the users in our facility to easily calculate usage costs. This alongside the floor plan which gives a digital overview of everything that is happening in the facility have been a massive help to us".
