ALAMEDA, Calif. (August 27, 2018) – Primary Eyecare Network (PEN), a division of ABB OPTICAL GROUP, announced that it has added Weave to its vendor panel. Weave, a tool that combines multiple communication streams into one platform, is now offering PEN members special pricing on installation and its overall monthly fee.

"We are thrilled to partner with Weave to offer our members access to a tool that will not only facilitate communication among staff and patients, but also, can ultimately help improve a practice’s overall workflow."
