Close Up: "We are very excited to be able to make our IDA service available to Wink users," said Tom Doyle, director of marketing and key accounts at Frames Data. "The beauty of Frames Data IDA is that subscribers can update their inventory with new frames daily, but without the time consuming data entry. New frames are introduced all the time, and we can now deliver that information much faster. It makes the inventory process all around easier, and we're glad that Wink is now able to offer this to their users." Ted Harrar, Wink's vice president of marketing, noted, "Having Frames Data inside Wink will allow our users to jumpstart their adoption of the inventory functionality we've created for them," he said. "Receiving new inventory was a daunting task before. Now they need only scan a UPC code and it's done. This is significant improvement." Furthermore, with a single scan of a barcode, we can show pictures of frames as well as alternative colors and sizes which are available. It just makes the entire process so quick and easy. Vital Stats: Wink is the third software provider to complete integration with the Frames Data IDA service, following FlexScanMD and My Vision Express. www.downloadwink.com; www.framesdata.com.
