Our History 

iPoint Touch was founded on the desire to help integrative animal practitioners fulfill their passion to serve their animal patients.

“When I watched Dr. Emily tediously hand-write the document for Tate’s treatment, I knew I could do something to help,” says founder Carmi Swift.

After having chiropractic treatment suggested for her heart dog, Tate, Swift made an appointment with Dr. Emily McLeod, DC. “I was amazed at the results of Tate’s treatment. I was at a loss to help him, and chiropractic gave him back to me with a quality of life for many more years than I expected.”

As an entrepreneur, however, Swift saw the paperwork drain being put on the doctor who was helping her canine companion. “I had experienced the same thing in my Audio/Visual business, Home Connections of Greater Kansas City, where I felt the same frustration at having to give up time doing repetitive tasks that I could have been spending with my customers or my family.”

Swift responded by approaching her son and business partner, Brooks, with a proposition to build a software for integrative animal practitioners that would give them back time, reduce stress and help them in their mission to help animals. “We had successfully created a product for the AV industry already — and I knew we could do the same thing here,” she says.

The company has worked closely with practitioners in the field to develop a product and a system that is affordable, easy to learn, well supported, and constantly improving to meet the needs of the doctors and the industry.

iPoint Touch entered into research and beta testing in 2014 and the first version was released in 2015. It was met with enthusiasm and an incredible positive response. “When I saw what this software could really do to help the doctors, I knew we had to step up our game even more,” says Swift. In 2018, the company began developing an acupuncture module which phase one was released in 2019. The software is dynamic in design with several new features released in 2020. The company is currently working on an Equine Dental, CranioSacral, and Massage Therapy modules for release in 2021.

iPoint Touch doesn’t stop at just providing good software. Swift and her son, Brooks, and the iPoint Touch team bring their entrepreneurial experience to the table to help their clients and the industry be more successful.

iPoint Touch has begun creating a library of webinars and videos that offer practitioners entrepreneurial strategy and knowledge. “I want to truly make a difference for the practitioners and the animals they serve,” says Swift. “Being an entrepreneur is a learned skill — and the learning never stops. I am happy to share what I know and what I’m learning so we can all thrive.”

Our Team

Carmi Swift

Carmi Swift

Founding Partner

Carmi Swift is a lifetime entrepreneur and animal lover. Carmi’s unique ability to see solutions to entrepreneurial challenges has made her an outstanding ally to both the Audio/Visual Service Industry and Integrative Animal Practitioners. Carmi spent 10 years building a successful AV Service business that worked with residential and commercial contractors to supply the latest AV equipment and fulfill installation. Late nights doing paperwork after a full day of serving customers fired her desire to make her own life easier so she sought help from her son and business partner Brooks who had a background in programming. Together, they developed a software system that reduced the time needed for project management by eliminating repetitive tasks. The system they created for their own business made such a dramatic difference, Carmi and her son made a decision to package and resell it to help others in their industry. The resulting company, iPoint Solutions LLC, owned and operated by Brooks, is a software product now internationally successful with thousands of users.

When Carmi’s dog Tate needed chiropractic care, she sought out a local practitioner and, during the appointment, her keen ability to solve problems kicked in as she watched the doctor hand write copious notes. She recognized in Dr Emily what she had seen in herself as the catalyst for the birth of iPoint Solutions. She approached Brooks about developing a software for Integrative Animal Practitioners and the rest, as they say, is history.

Today, Carmi is devoted to helping doctors provide the best care for their patients and do so efficiently with as little stress and repetition as possible. Carmi lives in the Kansas City metro with her pack of German Shepherd dogs and human family. In her spare time she enjoys dog showing, doing “projects around her home, and traveling to Marco Island, Fl to spend time with family.

In 2005 the company expanded to Kansas City, MO with a second store. To meet the need of organizing and managing the Home Connections staff, Brooks built the systematic business management software known today as iPoint Control. He quickly saw a global need for this solution amongst his peers in the audio/video industry. In 2014 he established his new company iPoint Solutions LLC to meet this need. iPoint Solutions has thousands of users in the US and globally and provides two software systems: iPoint Control for AV Industry and iPoint Touch EHR for the Integrative Veterinary Medicine practices.

He has taken great interest in the docs and how they do their job, always striving to understand, and simplify, their tasks.
