OA members granted access to ProVision supplier database

ProVision is allowing Optometry Australia-member independent practices access to the country’s largest frames database, ProSupply, which contains product availability information updated every 24 hours.

ProVision has announced it is offering independent practices who are OA members three months’ access to ProSupply while COVID-19 restrictions remain in place.

ProSupply is a ProVision system that offers access to 24,000 preferred supplier frames complete with frame imagery, specifications and suggested retail pricing.

Additional benefits to practices with ‘Guest’ access to ProSupply include the ability to identify frame requirements to continue to operate smoothly while frame supplier representatives are in limited availability during COVID-19.

Practices can also search for frames using key criteria including brand, frame type, construction, material and shape. They find frames for patients with complex requirements using advanced search options including eye size, bridge and temple length.

CEO Steven Johnston said ProVision is sharing its ProSupply system with other OA-member independent practice owners with the aim of assisting the “whole ecosystem” to ensure ongoing viability.

“This initiative affirms the ProVision commitment of ensuring independent optometry is resilient in challenging times, by providing benefits not only to our members, but to the whole independent optometry ecosystem,” he said.

“We recognise that just about everyone in the independent optometry ecosystem or supply chain is struggling right now, so for three months we will be extending access to ProSupply Guest, for all independent optometrists who are Optometry Australia members.”

Guest ProSupply users will also be able to view 19 of Australia’s best frame wholesalers’ current ranges and latest releases.

ProSupply Guest access is available immediately.
