LabMagic continues to grow

Softcell Online Systems continues to enhance LabMagic, its dental laboratory management program, with the release of several new standard features and two complete new modules.

"We're working to continually improve the value of LabMagic and are constantly adding new features," said Greg Jaggers, manager of the Melbourne-based software developer. "For example, we've added a quotations feature which automatically generates a quote for the Dentist. And we have improved the way LabMagic handles digital photos or scanned images. These new features are provided free to all users as part of their maintenance agreement," he said.

LabMagic will track the progress of every job in your laboratory at every stage and give real-time information on the productivity of each department and each technician and ensure your billing is completed accurately and efficiently. It will even book a courier to pick-up the job using SMS or e-mail. The program is equally applicable to one-man-band laboratories as it is to large organisations employing hundreds of people.

Softcell has also released two complete new modules, a Stock Module and an Analysis Module. The LabMagic Stock Module helps overcome the difficulties labs face trying to control raw materials. The Module handles suppliers and products; purchase orders; stock; goods in; and goods out. It also includes a comprehensive reporting component.

The new LabMagic Analysis Module allows lab owners to gain valuable information about their businesses by posing "what if" scenarios. For example, what if you increase sales of all ceramic crowns by 10%?; what if you hire a new technician; what if you increase prices by 5%?

Mr Jaggers said that the plans to develop a new LabMagic version are underway. "LabMagic is continually being evolved to meet the requirements of the modern dental laboratory. Because the product is developed locally, we can respond very quickly to feedback we receive. Once we believe we have a reasonably final version, we will completely re-write LabMagic to take advantage of new developments from Microsoft." Mr Jaggers said that LabMagic was growing in popularity and had recently welcomed Hizart Dental Laboratory and Proslab as clients.
