A lot has changed with Uprise in the last year. For those of you who aren't familiar, Uprise is VisionWeb's cloud-based practice management and EHR software solution. It's a comprehensive system designed specifically for Optometrists. Last year was a big year for us, and we're excited about it. But even more so, we're excited about the future.
Highlights from The Uprise Year in Review
The biggest change that we made was switching our software development method to using the Agile method. And, it has made a huge impact on our company and our software. You might not be familiar with the details of the agile development process, and we don't want to go on and on with the technical details so we will just take a minute to talk about how it impacts your practice.
Agile development requires more interaction with users to gain feedback and feature requests, which really means that our users get a say in what goes into the software and they end up with a solution that's really designed to fit their needs. The development process also pushes updates to the system in small, bite sized chunks so you don't have to wait ages for a major update and then also have to learn an entirely new software. Your system is always improving and we'll always let you know what to expect when an update is coming.
It's important to us that our users have a voice in their software, and that we're able to act quickly to make important updates to the system. This process has allowed us to hit a lot of goals last year including:
9 major software releases
Over 270 new software features
55 new training materials
9 new additions to the team
390 blogs published
And that's not all! Check out The Uprise Journey to follow along with our story and see what we've changed, where we are going, and why you might want to be a part of it all.
