CRIO Online

Web-based equine business management software

5.0/5 (12 reviews)

CRIO Online overview

CRIO Online is a centralized equine business management system which helps horse breeders and enthusiasts automate breeding, training and boarding management processes with barns and breeding management functionality, plus dynamic groups, and public and group link management technology.

Breeding management tools allow users to manage horse reproduction with features such as breeding sales, breeding services, and pregnancy monitoring. Barn and location management technology help users manage the location of animals in the stables and paddocks. Design management and assignment management tools enable users to create barn blueprints and assign horses to boxes.

CRIO Online allows users to create and share individual public links to specific horse information. Users can share these public links with clients or friends via email, or through a website or social network. CRIO Online supports group links, as well as individual links, which allow users to create public links to groups of horses in the form of a sales catalog. CRIO Online also includes several templates to help users decide how to display their animals.

Dynamic grouping technology allows users to work with groups of horses in a simpler, automated way. Users can define the grouping criteria by birth, age range, status, location, breeder and owner, parents, gender, breed, or color. Instead of manually updating horse groups, CRIO Online updates groups automatically depending on the selected criteria.

We are able to keep electronic health records of all our horses, keep track of our inventory, upload/share videos/pictures, and track all daily activities by our Farm Maintenance staff. CRIO is the only software that met all of our needs and is open to our suggestions/requests for future developments.The ability to work one on one with team to create/modify workflows and system functionality is excellent, we could not accomplish everything we have without the team.Turn around time for modifications/system questions are always realistic. The system is extremely user friendly both administrative and front-end.

We chose CRIO because we were able to give it a try it using its fully functional free trial. It allowed us to compare it to other products and see that it has more features than most, while at the same time being friendly and easy to use. We also based our decision on the fact that we are small and didn't really have a big budget to invest in software, and CRIO offers reasonable plans according to size. If I had to highlight just one thing about CRIO is the openness and availability of its owner/main developer. Whenever we had an issue we could contact him directly and he quickly helped us and solved our problem. We also asked him for a feature that CRIO didn't have: exporting reports to CSV format (which we required for our accountant who manages everything using Excel), and he decided to develop this at zero-cost for us since he thought it would benefit other customers too, so it was a win-win and we got what we needed in short time. We've been using it for almost a year now and are quite happy. There are really nice features like being able to create barns on a canvas, and assign different permissions to different users, we use this to guard against less tech-savvy employees from deleting horses, etc. We'll have a clearer idea later this year when we measure our performance, but we all agree that CRIO has helped us improve and be more efficient and organized.

We use CRIO ONLINE to track all of our horses' info, their health and farrier records, breeding, training and expenses. It has lots of ways to customize and it is very comprehensive. Our vet has access and she loves it! No need to send me reports about what she does, I can access the information from my iPad anytime I need it.Week after week you enter and you see some new options or improvements. The last one I found is that you can create QR codes and images to share in instagram or facebook.

Everything we could think of was included in this software. Whatever wasn't available, they made from scratch just for us. We can even send links of the horse's profile to potential buyers! Keeping updated diets, trimmings, expenses, it's all included and so simple to use. Can't recommend Crio enough, especially for Spanish speakersSimple, reliable, esasy to use and personalized.
