ABB OPTICAL GROUP's Glimpse Live Debuts Its First-Ever Smartphone App for Eye Care Practitioners to Easily Track Business Analytics
Glimpse Mobile complements existing desktop software


CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. (May 21, 2019) – ABB OPTICAL GROUP, a national provider of optical products and business services for the eye care industry, announced that its informatics service, Glimpse Live, has released its first-ever smartphone app for eye care practitioners to easily track the data and metrics that matter most to their practice.

Available as a native iOS and Android app, Glimpse Mobile features an easy-to-navigate interface with state-of-the-art data encryption, allowing Glimpse customers to access their custom analytics reports anytime from anywhere, safely and securely.

Glimpse Mobile is a new tool that complements Glimpse's existing desktop application, which integrates with electronic health records and practice management systems to provide in-depth analytics, live benchmarking, employee productivity tracking, monthly SWOT reports and daily metrics in an easy-to-understand, snapshot format, among other features. The software is designed to help eye care business owners measure and track their performance, identify growth opportunities, forecast future trends and compare results among peers.

"The feedback we received from eye care business owners during the testing phase of our new app was extremely positive," said Casey Hedberg, founder of the service and managing director of Glimpse for ABB OPTICAL GROUP. "No longer does an ECP need to be tied to a computer to check their practice's performance. Rather, they can track the metrics that matter to them while on the go, right from their mobile devices, offering a new level of convenience and allowing them to make important business decisions in real time."

A recent study of 661 practices showed that in the 12 months after adopting Glimpse, these practices saw year-over-year growth across all of the performance metrics tracked by the software, including monthly average increases of 12 percent in overall practice revenue, 13.5 percent in contact lens revenue, and 18.9 percent in lens and frame revenue. Additional study results show that across all the performance metrics, Glimpse locations outperform practices that do not use Glimpse to track practice performance.
