Optimum efficiency and cost savings

Data Management Professional Services

Our Professional Services group enhances value and achieves optimum efficiency and cost savings during the planning, implementation and operation of the FORUM® Eye Care Data Management system. Our project managers are Project Management Professionals (PMP) certified by the Project Management Institute (PMI) and projects are being run using PMBOK project methodology. Our FORUM implementation team is Network+, MCSE, and Microsoft Server certified. Their services include consultation, project management, implementation, and ongoing support.

A trusted partnership with ZEISS is especially important when you are setting up and integrating complex devices, systems and software solutions within existing infrastructures. Every IT environment is as different as every practice or hospital workflow, and typically requires an individualized solution.

Once your implementation is complete, a special FORUM Service Agreement provides ongoing support for your networked environment.
