The optometry and ophthalmology business software marketplace isn’t always crystal clear. In fact, with new products coming on the market every day and industry leaders adding new products and revamping old ones – the market is actually starting to look very fuzzy making it increasingly difficult for optometry professionals to pick the right products to automate their practices.
One great resource to help add some clarity to the picture is Capterra.com where you can see all of the great products available alongside real-world user reviews with additional information provided by each vendor.
Some of the highest-rated business applications for optometrists include Status Orama by MainSys, IntelleChart by MD Intellesys, Yocale, Crystal Practice Management by Abeo Solutions, and EyePegasus EHR by EyeTcare.
But high ratings don’t mean as much sometimes as popularity. For example, optemetry apps with the most customer reviews on the directory tend to shed some insight into how many companies are actually using the software and how they rank the applications. As such, below are some additional applications to consider and all of them have more reviews than the highest-rated apps mentioned previously.
When evaluating business software for your optometry practice you may consider picking the best application for the operational side of the business and then picking the best possible accounting system to integrate with as many optometry applications have very weak accounting functionality or integrate only to low-end systems like Intuit QuickBooks. Consider picking a technology partner like e2b teknologies to help you integrate with a cloud accounting system like Sage Intacct.
When selecting a system, make sure it has as much functionality as possible and understand how the application works. How is it deployed? How are new versions and upgrades managed? What advanced functionality is available as you grow and expand your practice? The table below highlights just a few of the many features you may need and should review for each of the possible applications you’re evaluating.
Like it or not, the accounting function is in the news distribution business. Read the entire whitepaper here.
