  • SUNIX Selling Tool

    In the Spectacle screen, you can set up such that the Lens Pick List will first show lens(es) of 1st Preference of the practitioner, which are usually the premium ones, or the ones that have a higher margin or that are currently on sale. If the patient wants a bit cheaper, then you can click onto the "Expand Choice" button which will also show Preference 2. If he wants cheaper still, you click "Expand Choice" again, and so on. In other words, instead of up-selling, it can show the lenses top-down to guide your staffs in recommending premium lenses first, thus increasing sale per patient. This tool also allows the owner or manager to easily instruct the staffs what to sell or recommend, which is specially good for practices that the owner or manager is not the one that does the selling. To setup:

    1. Go to Maintenance - Pick List - Lens Code Grouping, Modify each Lens Group to enter the "Use" for the Spec screen, e.g. the Bifocals group is used for "B" in the Spec screen, Multifocal group is used for "M" in the Spec screen. Some lens groups are used for more than one "Use" e.g. Single Vision lenses can be used for distance, near and intermediate, which you will then enter "DNI" in Use. For lenses that you want to show all favourite lenses, you can leave the "Use" blank in the setup. (Favourite lenses means the ones that have been ticked or marked "Y" in "Include in Pick List" under Maintenance - Lens code Setup Spectacle). Once the Use is entered, then in the Spec screen, the Lens Pick List will be shortened to only show the appropriate lenses according to the "Use". For example, if Use = B, it will only show the Bifocal lenses

    2. Go to Maintenance - Lens Code Setup Spectacle, you can mark the Preference of a lens. "1" is first preference, "2" is second preference and so on. You can set up more than 1 lens for each preference. If there are no preferences set up, it will show all favourite lenses for that "Use"
