Assessment Details

The following scenario is fictional, and not based on any real business. Purrfect Vets is a small veterinary clinic, working with domestic companion animals. Mostly they work with dogs, cats, and smaller animals such as hamsters and rabbits. Purrfect Vets is run by a team of two veterinarians, Angela and Bridget, and one administrative staff member, Claudia.

Team Hours
Team members work in the following shift in Purrfect Vets-

Angela works 6.5 hours on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays

Bridget works 6.5 hours on Tuesdays and Thursdays; and

Claudia works 3.5 hours every weekday.

Cost
Angela, being the most experienced veterinarian, costs $45 per hour to employ. Bridget, as a veterinarian, costs $38 per hour to employ. Claudia costs $30 per hour to employ. These rates take into account other costs related to employment, you don’t need to add any additional offsets. All staff are also entitled to four weeks of paid annual leave, during which casual replacements are required at a cost of $49 per hour for the veterinarians and $39 per hour for Claudia. During their leave weeks, Angela, Bridget, and Claudia continue to be paid. Fixed costs such as permits, rent, and insurance are $16384 per year, and monthly utility costs (such as electricity and gas) are $390 per month.

Task 4 Price Consistency

Using Excel, analyse the historical data you have available, and create a spreadsheet that allows Claudia to enter the animal type and consultation type, and gives a quote amount. Ensure that your spreadsheet is usable – it should be simple and include appropriate text and formatting to make your spreadsheet easy to use by a member of the Purrfect Vets team It is up to you to determine an appropriate quoting method, however it’s vital that the new system doesn’t lose money compared to the previous approach.
