We use Labtrac Enterprise laboratory system software for our case management. We have used Labtrac for over ten years now and feel it offers the best laboratory package for tracking and recording all our work cases.
We can email invoices and statements at the touch of a button to give you the information you need immediately.
You can focus on the quality of your work, we’ll simplify the rest.
It complies with all ISO and DAMAS requirements and records all the information needed to enable us to keep up with changing legislation.
Every case is returned in our sturdy packing box complete with clearly printed address, surgeon and patient name. Each model is individually bubble wrapped to insure it arrives with you safely.
You have a choice to either have your work invoiced in Euro or Sterling. This should be determined when you open your account. If you chose Euro, an exchange charge (which is determined daily via our bank rates) will be itemised on your invoice. You should pay this account in Euros either by cheque, bacs or bank transfer. If you wish to pay in Sterling the charge will be left off and you may send in a Sterling cheque or pay by bacs or bank transfer. Contact Jennie for our bank details for ebanking.
Unfortunately we cannot accept payment by credit card at present, again euro or sterling cheques or bank transfers are acceptable.
It is very important that we get all the information from you for each case, please call Lynsey or Suzanne for our comprehensive prescription dockets which come in triplicate to help with record keeping.
