Increased Profitability for Optician-Handover

LRS UK has worked with the leading opticians in the UK to develop what many call the finest handover paging system for opticians in the world today.

Our solutions address many areas that can adversely affect efficiency and profitability. We're proud to say that our opticians handover solutions solve those issues and increase profitability dramatically. So much so in fact that the ROI on our handover systems is literally less than a couple of weeks.

Our designs are completely unique because we are the manufacturer. Features like these make our solutions the best:

Optometrist's in the test room simply press a button and page staff with any of five (or six on the OptiCall) messages - below are some real life examples of what we typically use:

1. Dispense.
2. Fields.
3. Pre-Test.
4. Contact Lenses.
5. Panic.

In fact you can choose to have any five (or six) messages of your choice for your practice to suit the way that you operate.

You can have just a one button test room transmitter purely for handovers. The handover pager system will also maximize the optometrist’s time.



Single Messaging for Reception

Multi Solution for Handover Paging with Staff


Our Butler XP and Butler II single button units are great when you need just one message maybe for reception.

Low cost and ONE button units come with a fitting kit. The unit can be programmed to send a message (silently) to staff or a manager with an alphanumeric pager. The Butler II operates on either AAA batteries and the Butler XP uses AA batteries. There is an optional mains kit.


Butler II and OptiCall™ 5 & 6 button units: For multiple messaging the Butler II 5 button and the new OptiCall™ 6 button units are required.

These units come complete with a fitting kits. The buttons can be custom programmed to send out messages (silently) to staff or a manager with an LRS pager. We also have mains kits for either unit.

The OptiCall is also available as a single button unit.


This is a short video of the 'Butler II' and how we can use it in Opticians as a solution to increase profitability.

However our OptiCall is a newer unit which is also currently being rolled out in the UK


How Our Systems Can Be Programmed for Use

Manager Led System:

This unit transmits a text message to the manager pager. The manager can then choose which OA responds to the test room call.

ADVANTAGE: The Manager is in complete control ofwhat sales person goes to which test room.

DISADVANTAGE: There is an increased manager load in busy times.

The manager lead system from LRS comprises of Transmitters for each test room and a single pager for the Manager (we recommend one spare in case the manager somehow loses it)

Buddy System:

The button in the test room will send out a custom message to a specific dispenser or group of dispensers who handle the service to that exact room.

ADVANTAGE: The Buddy system can build a 'team' rapport between staff and brings an element of competition to the opticians company.

DISADVANTAGE: It can be difficult to ensure sufficient cover for the whole day.

The Buddy solution comprises of Transmitters for each test room and one to three pagers for each test room depending on the staff being utilised on the specific site.

Whole Team System:

The Test room transmitter pages ALL pagers on-site, immediately the next available OA responds to the test room call to meet the customer without the customer even being aware.

More staff available at any given time, but staff do need to be aware of how the system works.

DISADVANTAGE: Care needs to be taken at lunch time and busy periods. Staff need to be aware what the expectations of them are. This is the preferred LRS System.

The hole team solution comprises of Transmitters for each test room. 8 - 16 pagers (one for each staff member)
but quantity of pagers depends on the number of staff on site.

Buddy & Manager Led System:

If you have five test rooms or less then a buddy system is likely more suitable with a manager pager - the manager will be paged from all rooms for monitoring purposes. This becomes a back up for the buddy because if the buddy is busy with a client then the system has a built in solution overseen by the manager. This option works very well when the re-paging facility is activated on the system.


Butler II (five button)
The low-cost, short-range paging solution for opticians. This five-button unit simply attaches to almost any surface with provided commercial velcro. Each button can be programmed to silently page a staff member or manager wearing an LRS alphanumeric pager and if battery driven messages a manager when the batteries get low.

Alternatively use the OptiCall unit which was developed for Opticians handover that has 6 buttons.
