Latest News Frames Data Assist Enables Eyecare Professionals to Access Frames Data Catalog From VisionWeb By Staff Friday, October 26, 2012 12:24 AM AUSTIN, Texas and NEW YORK—A collaboration between technology solutions provider for the eyecare industry, VisionWeb, and ophthalmic frame information provider, FramesData, has resulted in Frames Data Assist, a new tool that provides eyecare profressionals (ECPs) access to the Frames Data catalog from within the VisionWeb spectacle lens ordering engine. ECPs can electronically access frame information and measurements from the Frames Data catalog and then auto-populate that information seamlessly into the orders they place via the VisionWeb spectacle lens ordering portal. Click here for a demonstration. “VisionWeb has always been on a mission to provide the most robust, efficient, and convenient ordering solutions in the eyecare industry,” said Julia Crawford, director of product strategy at VisionWeb. “We were excited to team up with Frames Data to deliver the Frames Data Assist tool to our users. It gives VisionWeb members quick access to the industry’s go-to resource for frame information, and it’s a fantastic way to eliminate a manual step in the ordering process.” VisionWeb users simply search for their frame by manufacturer or brand and select the available frame models, color, sizes, and temple lengths in the designated fields on VisionWeb’s spectacle lens ordering engine. Once the frame is selected, the A Box, B Box, DBL, and ED are auto-populated from the Frames Data catalog with the click of a button, significantly reducing the risk of data entry errors. Inclusion in Frames Data Assist is automatic for participating frame companies, and updates will be provided daily. “Frames Data is interested in ways that we can help eyecare providers be more efficient, and that’s something that VisionWeb is very effective at doing,” said Tom Lamond, president of Frames Data. “It’s a natural fit for Frames Data to work closely with the VisionWeb team, and we’re particularly happy that the new module offers some nice enhanced features that are exclusive for Frames Data subscribers.” The Frames Data Assist tool is available immediately to all VisionWeb users free of charge. Also, Frames Data subscribers that order on VisionWeb can link their account within the Frames Data Assist tool to access enhanced functionality such as a wholesale pricing display and image previews of the frames. Frames Data subscribers can connect their Frames Data account within the tool by using the “Connect Frames Data Account to Access More Features” button and entering their account number.
