ACEP : Technology for Opticians!

Acep Proposals

ACEP believes in anticipating opticians’ needs for sales-support solutions and offering them access to all the innovations and new-generation tools that are essential to their fast-changing profession.

The business was created some 20 years ago and offers a range of high added-value measurement solutions, developed upstream with leading lens manufacturers, to respond to the needs of eyewear customers and the specific features of the latest-generation lenses. As the inventor of the first systems to help customers choose their frames in 1994, the first touch-screens in 1997 and the Smart Kiosk column in 2000, ACEP continues to innovate and is now offering tablet-based solutions in addition to its measurement systems. Tablet-based solutions integrate the most powerful augmented-reality simulations on the market and help the optician to advise customers with presbyopia on choosing progressive lenses for their near-vision requirements. ACEP devotes over 15% of its sales to research and development and has its own production and R&D centre in the Loiret region of France to guarantee the reliability, ease of use and precision of its systems.

Opticians operate in a fiercely competitive environment and are faced with a clear need to set themselves apart following the arrival of the internet in the market. ACEP’s solutions can help strengthen their image as professionals and bolster their range of high-end lenses while saving valuable time thanks to their ease of use.

Testimonials

“A good salesperson is going to really use the Smart Mirror as a tool and point out the pros and cons of each frame, including the front, sides, details, and things like AR and tints, this is what it takes to close the sale.”

“This is the most rewarding event in the history of our practice. It makes a superb illustration, which allows us to give patients a visualization and perception of our products, as opposed to sales pitch. They love to tell their friends about Smart Mirror, which markets us to the whole community. Thank You.”

“We wanted to take just a quick moment here to express our sincerest thanks to you and the Smart Mirror family for your tremendous level of help and support this past year. As Toledo Optical launched our new private label Progressive lens series, the Visionary, last year…we knew that we needed to find an exciting and dynamic tool which would not only help our customers to take a better and refined set of fitting measurements – but a tool which would also breathe new life into the dispensing process and allow us to add a more defining “WOW” factor to the overall patient experience. Throughout this process, the Smart Mirror technology – along with your support… have allowed us to increase market share and improve our overall profitability. Please know how much we appreciate this level of on-going support, and we thank you for your contribution to our success. All the best”

“Smart Mirror sells more lens options than the best-trained staff could. It does that by presenting the options as information, not as sales pitch. The patients love the professional manner of the presentation, and my staff loves the ease of delivery of the information to the patient.”
