Intuitive, dynamic and scalable, ABS tailors Evolution to YOUR lab and YOUR processes giving you the freedom to run your business your way.
In a high output dental laboratory environment, the level of complexity in scheduling and tracking cases can be overwhelming. Managing account expectations, internal resources, materials and other business critical functions has, in the past, been a very complex process involving not only management software, but also requiring a great deal of human intervention. The majority of a supervisor’s time in the lab is spent allocating work to technicians, as well as managing exceptions and updating schedules, resources and case requirements. Cases sometimes fall behind or “get lost in the shuffle” with no automated way of knowing that this has happened. Doctor relations, technician productivity, resource allocation, profit margins and overall laboratory productivity suffer as a result. In addition, dental laboratory owners and managers have been overwhelmed by the challenge of making multiple software packages (laboratory management, accounts receivable and customer service) “communicate” effectively.
ABS has created a system that permits a lab to proactively schedule, manage and track cases as they flow through the lab. With Evolution, ABS has designed a system that will more effectively schedule cases based on case complexity and technician availability, skill and capacity. It will dynamically monitor work in progress, help pinpoint and reduce the costs associated with case production and increase overall lab productivity. Knowing such things as the best route for a case to travel through the lab based on resource allocation and skill set will dramatically improve the efficiency of lab technicians and management. Implementing Evolution is like hiring a new employee to handle the delegation and tracking of cases.
Evolution features the best priority-driven production management tools that give dental labs the ability to proactively manage case scheduling and tracking as the cases flow through production. By making sure the right people are working on the right cases at the right time, Evolution ensures you meet your customers due dates every time. But we are not just a production management solution; with our state of the art Customer Relationship Manager and a fully functioning accounts receivable system, Evolution becomes YOUR ‘partner in business.’ By managing all aspects of your thriving lab, Evolution can schedule, manage, and track cases; track financial information and technician productivity; streamline marketing, sales, and customer service; and monitor overall lab health-all in REAL TIME!
