OPIE Software will feature Ottobock products on its digital purchasing and inventory system in mid-October, according to a press release.
The partnership will allow users – including any O&P provider with access to OPIE Software’s system – to view Ottobock products, configure parts and place electronic orders. Features will include documentation of parts of patients’ charts, part configuration wizards and automated order feedback and delivery receipts, per the release.
“We at Ottobock are excited to integrate the OPIE software platform into our business,” Matt Swiggum, regional president and chief executive officer for Ottobock North America, said in the release. “OPIE is dedicated to serving the technology and business needs of the O&P profession, and its purchasing and inventory management system will enable our customers to streamline their purchasing process as we continue our effort in making it easier for them to do business with us.”
The two companies had been negotiating the partnership for some time, according to the release.
“The integration with Ottobock has been in the works for a long time, and we are excited to push this relationship forward,” Paul Prusakowski, CPO, FAAOP, chief executive officer of OPIE Software, said in the release. “Ottobock has one of the largest product portfolios in the industry, and we are thrilled that our users will now be able to access that directly in their systems.”
