The Opticom System

opticom-system

The Opticom System offers electronic ordering of Optical lens products sold by participating vendors. By ordering through Opticom you can place all of your lens orders electronically in one convenient step. Our services that are supported by these manufacturers are available at no cost to the laboratory.

Opticom Ordering Options:

WEB SITE ORDERING

Order your lenses on-line using our Product Search / Ordering feature to access our complete on-line lens data base. When you select a specific lens product, the entire available range will display in a matrix format; sphere and cylinder powers for finished products, and add powers and base curves for semi-finished products. Ordering is easy, fast and accurate.

If you want to re-order lenses using a barcode scanner, use our Replacement Ordering feature. An optional barcode reader can be connected to your PC to scan your lens barcodes.

FILE TRANSFER PROTOCOL (FTP)

Using your lab management system (LMS) to create a purchase order file, your data can be sent through the internet via FTP and a detailed order confirmation will be emailed back to you.

X-MODEM TRANSFER

An X-Modem transfer is an electronic file sent direct to Opticom via a dedicated phone number. Data is sent from either your lab management system (LMS) or from a programmable hand held barcode reader. (See Computer Requirements)
