Summer Newsletter 2024

As usual, we never stop the development of Optisoft.NET and you will soon see some exciting enhancements. Version updates have now been scheduled for the coming year, so regular releases are heading your way! 

Enhance Your Marketing With Text Messaging

Many practices are now incorporating text messages into their marketing strategies.

Text messaging is cost-effective and direct. It is proving to be more effective than emailing as texts are typically read, while emails can easily be deleted or flagged as junk.

Our support team is ready to assist with any campaign you wish to launch. We can set up one-time or recurring text messages targeting specific patient groups, sharing your current offers and any other important information you may wish to send.

Automated messaging can also be configured into appointments. Promote your full range of services leading up to an appointment, or follow up with a request for a Google review afterward — everything can be fully automated!

To help you get started, we’re offering the first 500 SMS credits for free on your new campaign.

Integrate Your Terminal, Save Time & Money

The rollout of our payment terminal integration is proving to be very successful with more practices choosing to integrate and save money.

Integration means eradicating input errors and removing the need for end of day reconciliations.

Our partner, EVO, always aims to save you money with reduced and transparent fees.

Upcoming Conferences – Save the Date

We are excited to meet our existing and new users at the upcoming conferences this year:

Independents Day – 8th July, Birmingham National Motorcycle Museum

Since 2005, Independents Day has been a key event for independent optical practitioners, emphasizing the need for both clinical and commercial skills. It focuses on commercial awareness and business development to help practitioners thrive. The event ensures that patients receive the best care by supporting business success. Lectures offer practical tips and ideas that can be implemented immediately, often at little or no cost.

Scottish Optical Conference – 17th November, Glasgow Radisson Blu Hotel

SOC is a cutting-edge conference showcasing the latest in Optometry, Ophthalmology, Dispensing, Contact lenses, and Business/Marketing. Led by Dr Scott Mackie and Dr Roisin Mackie, who are renowned for their successful events, SOC is the largest optical exhibition in Scotland and the second largest in the UK, featuring over 50 exhibitors.

Planned Development Work

Here are the projects we are actively working on:

Online Appointments System: We are in the final stages of development and are currently beta-testing the first phase in live practices. Once this phase is successfully completed, we will offer this facility to a select number of other practices.

eGOS Domiciliary & GOS5 Claims: This feature is nearing completion and will be included in an upcoming version.

Docmail Integration for Optipost: We are simplifying the link between Optisoft and Docmail to eliminate the need for the printer driver.

Direct Debits Module: This module will automate monthly payments for items such as contact lens supply, patient loyalty schemes, and spreading the cost of high-end dispenses. Phase 1 is expected to be ready for beta testing in the next version.

We value your input and would love to hear any suggestions for changes and improvements.
