Product: Acuitas-Frames Data IDA Integration
Top Line: Acuitas, the leading optical practice management software in Europe, has completed an integration with Frames Data as part of its expansion into the North American market. This integration gives Acuitas users the ability to subscribe to a service, called Frames Data IDA (Immediate Data Access), that enables access to frame information over the web from inside the Acuitas interface without loading a disc or downloading a separate file.
Close Up: “We’re always happy to work with a software partner such as Ocuco that’s automating inventory processes, because the automation makes it much easier for ECPs to realize the full benefit of using Frames Data,” said Tom Doyle, director of marketing and key accounts at Frames Data. According to Doyle, the data, which is updated daily, allows practices to avoid entering the information by hand and is then used to further improve efficiency in the practice. “Once the data is in the software’s inventory database, it’s going to be used to get new frames into inventory with a quick barcode scan, to automate setting your retail rates, automate submitting your managed care claims. It will even automatically add frames to a re-order list when inventory reaches a set level.”
Vital Stats: Acuitas is now one of four completed integrations with Frames Data IDA. The previously completed integrations are with FlexScanMD, Wink and My Vision Express.
