The Only Complete Enterprise Mobility Solution

Sightpath Medical – Inventory Tracking Solution

Sightpath-MedicalSightpath Medical™ is the leading provider of mobile and fixed ophthalmic surgical solutions; available on demand when and where they are needed. The company provides simple, affordable ophthalmic surgical solutions for mobile refractive and cataract outsourcing. Nobody has a better reputation for its advanced technology, skilled ophthalmic technicians, personalized solutions and responsive support, which is just one of the reasons why Sightpath turned to MobileFrame when it was time to improve their operational efficiencies.

The company’s field technicians are responsible for assisting eye surgeons who are located in both rural and urban communities around the country. The Sightpath technicians are also geographically dispersed and don’t always have easy access to company locations to replenish their inventory. Instead, the technicians are sent shipments of inventory required for their upcoming surgery cases. In the past, each technician was required to manually enter data about the shipments received and inventory used every day into their business system. Tracking the movement of inventory and replenishing the technicians supply was always a complex process handled with a lot of manual data entry, human error and telephone calls to the office. As a result, the field service team had to spend a large portion of their time managing the manual processes instead of focusing on their customers.


Management’s goal was to implement a mobile solution to help their field service team become more efficient, improve the company’s customer service levels and drive business process innovation. Sightpath wanted to avoid mobile solutions that require a team of programmers to write separate code for each operating system and device used in the field. After an exhaustive evaluation of all of the mobility providers in the industry, Sightpath standardized on MobileFrame’s 100% Code-Free Configurable Mobile ApplicationTM Platform for the conception, development and management of their mobile enterprise applications. MobileFrame’s “write once, deploy anywhere” approach to mobility allows customers to deploy applications in less time and with less effort than any other application development tool on the market.
