Ortho2 Equipment Needs

No one would argue that having a professional and proficient staff is key to the success of an orthodontic office. What is also important, is having
reliable computers.
Unless an office is proactive about their computers and already have an upgrade schedule in place, it’s easy for them to get overlooked. The older the machine is, the less reliable it is, and the more likely something can go wrong. Especially without regular maintenance. This almost always leads to frustrating situations. Soon it seems like nothing in the office is working, computers are constantly going down, and the whole office is running unbearably slow. One of the most frustrating situations for staff members is having an impatient parent standing in front of them waiting to schedule or make a payment and their computer freezes.

Customizing Edge Cloud

Posted by Brooke Milligan on Jan 28, 2019 9:53:23 AM

One of the best features of Edge Cloud is the ability to customize it based on the role within the office. The treatment coordinator can set up Edge Cloud differently than the front desk person to see what pertains to a specific role. In addition, each office can use Edge Cloud in the way that works best for them. Dashboards can be set up differently, offices can have a variety of information in stacks, or various workflows.

Friday Happy Dance

Posted by Michelle Haupt on Nov 2, 2018 8:48:01 AM

It’s Friday and we are doing a happy dance over here at Ortho2 World Headquarters. Not just because it’s almost the weekend and we gain an hour of sleep this weekend, but because half of our customer base is using Edge Cloud! That means half of our customers are no longer backing up their practice management data, half of our customers have said so long to servers, and half of our customers are living a worry free life about what happens to their data in the event of a natural disaster. Now that is something to do a happy dance about!

What I Learned from Attending a Software Conference

Posted by Michelle Haupt on Oct 9, 2018 12:02:24 PM

For the second time in seven years, I was able to travel for work. The first time was in 2016 for the Ortho2 Users Group Meeting. I was the at-large winner chosen to attend to see what the meeting was all about. During the meeting, I helped Kim Barker, Ortho2 Meeting and Event Coordinator, with various tasks throughout the day to make sure everything ran smoothly. I assisted our customers with their questions during the meeting, and enjoyed the opening reception.

When's the Last Time You Backed Up Your Data?

Posted by Brooke Milligan on Mar 30, 2018 1:37:53 PM

Have you ever had that moment of panic when you realize you’ve lost all your important data? Our phones, tablets, and computers have become integral pieces of technology that hold a lot of information and data from our lives. Think about it - how many times a day do you take pictures with your phone or save important data on your computer? We depend so much on technology, however, we forget that accidents happen and all of our files can disappear due to glitches or lost or stolen devices.

I Had the Time of My Life...at the 2018 UGM!

Posted by Brooke Milligan on Mar 12, 2018 12:52:37 PM

This year was my first year attending the annual Ortho2 Users Group Meeting and it didn’t disappoint! As the Multimedia Marketing Coordinator at Ortho2, I’ve spent a lot of time working on UGM email campaigns, posting on our social channels, and helping design various materials leading up to the event. It was exciting to see the hard work behind the scenes put into action.

I had heard many stories about the meeting from UGM veterans, and I was eager to experience the meeting for myself. Since returning home to Iowa, my brain is still rushing from all the excitement. For those of you who haven’t experienced a UGM yet, here are my top five reasons why you should consider going.
