Step 1. Order Your Free Quick Start Guides
Before you get started, make sure to order your free Quick Start Guides. You will distribute these guides to managers and in-field staff like caregivers, so make sure you order enough to cover your whole system.
The guides give high-level how-to information to your managers and caregivers so they can feel empowered to get started submitting Daily Checkups fast. You will distribute these guides to managers, and they will then distribute them to caregivers in the field.

Step 2. Manager Training (~30-45 mins)
Set up a meeting with Managers
Now that your Quick Start Guides have Arrived, it’s time to schedule a meeting with your managers. We recommend sending your managers an invite for the session using email or traditional mail. Our team has created a template letter you can use for this.
Manager Meeting Agenda
The Purpose of the manager meeting is to ensure all field managers understand what EveryPig is, how it works, and how to explain its use to caregivers. Manager will be the front line in your operation, so it is essential that they fully understand the system before the company-wide rollout. You can download the Manager/Caregiver training powerpoint for your use.
Suggested Meeting Structure
Explain the EveryPig system. Make sure to explain why moving to digital record keeping is better for your operation.
Distribute Quick Start Guides. Make sure to walk the managers through the guides and answer any questions they may have
Plan rollout with the team. Let your managers help you plan the implementation. Consider their concerns, suggestions, and together create an action plan.
Close with Q&A. Close the meeting with a question and answer session. This time provides managers with a chance to voice opinions and have any outstanding questions answered.
Step 3. Caregiver Training (~10-15 mins)
Send Caregivers A Message Regarding EveryPig
We recommend sending all caregivers participating in EveryPig a message regarding your system’s use of the service via email or traditional mail. The news will let them know about your intentions and will alert them to the training session they will soon have with their manager. Our team has created a template letter you can use for this.
Managers Meet with Caregivers In-Field
On an agreed upon date, managers will begin to meet with caregivers in-field regarding getting started with EveryPig as part of the manager’s usual rounds. The manager will take this opportunity to distribute the Quick Start Guides, train the caregiver, and answer any questions they may have.
Suggested Meeting Structure
Explain the EveryPig system. Make sure to explain why moving to digital record keeping is better for the production company, veterinarians, managers, and the caregiver.
Distribute a Quick Start Guide. Make sure to walk the caregiver through the guides and answer any questions they may have
Demonstrate the use of EveryPig. The manager will then show the caregiver how to use EveryPig using a smartphone.
Close with Q&A. Before leaving, answer any questions the caregiver may have. It is essential that they understand they will be supported in this transition, so do your best to make them feel that support.
Step 4. System Rollout
