OPIE is proud to announce the expansion of our Integrated Supplier program to include the functionality to order the prosthetic products of Össur Americas for OPIE practices in the United States. This integration allows OPIE software users to search through a digital catalog of Össur’s prosthetic products and place orders with Össur through the OPIE Purchasing & Inventory system or at Shop@oandp.com. These integrated functions will be rolled out to OPIE users in the US starting today, Monday, October 1, 2012.
"We are pleased to be working with OPIE and expect this agreement will provide yet another option to efficiently provide Ossur’s advanced prosthetic and orthopedic innovations to clinicians throughout the U.S," said Mahesh Mansukhani, President of Össur Americas.
Key features of this phase of the integration with Össur include:
- Complete Össur prosthetics catalog available in OPIE
- Shipping via your default method or a choice of expedited shipping methods
- Online order submission
- Order confirmation details returned to OPIE within 30 minutes of order submission
- Automatic shipping notification
Paul Prusakowski, CPO, FAAOP, CEO of OPIE Software, said, "We are strongly committed to evolving OPIE based on the expressed desires of our users and adding Ossur to our family of Integrated Suppliers has been among the top requests from our OPIE clients. Broadening our family of Integrated Suppliers brings an even stronger benefit to using our electronic product selection, ordering, and inventory management capabilities. We are thrilled to partner with Ossur in this way and to work with them on many new project ideas in the future."
In addition to these features, the OPIE development team is already working with Össur to enrich their digital catalog, create more advanced configurators for some of the more complex feet and to very soon incorporate customer-specific pricing in OPIE for each practice. The intention is to add the full Össur bracing and support catalog to OPIE in the near future as well.
We would also like to thank the facilities that have been testing the integration during the past few weeks. We have received great feedback from users thus far, and are confident that this new ordering functionality will be very helpful for OPIE practices. This Össur ordering functionality will be made available for Canadian OPIE users soon.
