TORONTO, Canada and DUBLIN, Ireland – Ocuco has acquired the optical business of Acumenex, provider of E-Commerce solutions to leading chains, insurers and independent ECPs in the USA and Canada. The acquisition is part of Ocuco’s global Omni-channel strategy for its independent and chain customers worldwide. Ocuco will add Acumenex’s webstore and supply chain integration capabilities to its own independent Eye Care Practitioner (ECP) focussed E-Commerce solutions, and integrate them to its current POS, practice management and E-Scheduler products; enabling Ocuco customers the ability to offer a seamlessly integrated online and off-line experience to their patients. “We believe that all optical practitioners will have to offer Omni-channel services, such as online access to appointments and purchasing and replenishment to their customers, both to protect their business from predation by increasingly sophisticated online retailers, and to grow their business. Integration with the practice management system will be a key part of making this work and keeping track of the client’s overall relationship with the practice” stated Leo MacCanna, Ocuco CEO.
