Optical Shop Software
Optical Shop Software is an optical store management solution designed with independent opticians in mind. Inventory control, direct order submission (via fax), insurance claim paper processing and patient statement are some of its standard features. OSS can be networked and has add-on features to allow digital photography of clients wearing selected frames, and direct faxing of both full service orders and separate component orders for those opticians that do all work on premises.

Optimeys is practice management system designed for optometrists, opticians and ophthalmologists. It's available in single- and multi-user versions and handles patient details, insurance information, wide range of reporting formats, electronic claims and more.
OPTIX Workflow lets you move documents electronically and automatically along a user-definable routing path. It's cross platform, and can be used to help a large insurance company that receives thousands of claims forms every day. How? Consider this scenario: Perhaps these forms are scanned in a mailroom, then the images are routed from workstation to workstation -- automatically --through as many steps as it takes to process the claims. A user at one step might wish to view the scanned images and add a document to the electronic "package." The next user, perhaps in another building across town, might wish to add a spreadsheet. When that user is done, he or she simply hits the "Next" button and the documents are automatically routed to the next person listed on the route. The route can be as simple, or as complex, as your business requires.
