RICS Software Partners With Kiwi to Optimize Data Management for Pedorthic Retailers

Integration Enables Pedorthic Retailers to Streamline Data Management, Provide Insight Into Clinical and Sales Information

INDIANAPOLIS, IN--(Marketwired - Oct 22, 2014) - RICS Software, a web-based retail management solution, and Kiwi Software Solutions, a web-based clinic management tool, announce the integration of both software solutions to give pedorthic retailers real-time visibility on both clinical and sales information. Compliant with HIPAA privacy standards, this collaboration syncs key customer data, allowing the retailer to retain one comprehensive database to electronically assess client information.

Kiwi simplifies the clinical and business aspects of RICS' pedorthic clients by syncing customer information. Customer information is entered in Kiwi and is then appended to the customer record in RICS, helping the retailer cross reference transactional sales data with clinical data. Without having to enter in this data manually and keep additional files on hand, retailers save time and the need for extra storage space to house duplicate documents.

"The efficiency and optimization the Kiwi integration brings our pedorthic retailers is exciting and truly significant," said Jason Becker, COO at RICS Software. "Centralizing sales and clinical data into one retail management system will help retailers make more educated sales decisions based on the data that's available in RICS. This partnership will help pedorthic retailers eliminate the need to manually enter data, therefore improving their data integrity."

"At Kiwi, our goal is to increase the productivity and efficiency of orthotic clinics. By integrating with RICS Software, we are putting our best foot forward," said Graham Archer, VP of Pedorthic Services at Kiwi Software Solutions. "The partnership allows us to arm orthotic retailers with the information they need from clinics, while also providing relevant sales data all on one intuitive platform. We are saving retailers time and resources that otherwise would have been spent on duplicating data."

Kiwi's web-based secured interface is HIPAA compliant, which ensures the correct safeguards are in place to protect the security and integrity of patient files. With Kiwi and RICS integration, there is no longer a need for retailers to re-enter patient information, which eliminates the need for multiple paper forms.
