Dental Lab Workflow (for DentaLab QuickBooks) is a Web-based app that is specifically designed for use with tablets such as the Androids and Apple iPads in conjunction with DentaLab for QuickBooks, but can also be used on the desktop.

The app will track workflow in the lab for a variety of purposes in a convenient, inexpensive way. You can choose to have it used by all or selected technicians; and to have it track workflow all the time or just occasionally. With a simple touch, you can indicate when a case item is started, paused or finished. The system will tally the time in minutes each item takes to complete and will record the technician, date and time. You also can simply view the workflow. Dental Lab Workflow also includes additional options for those with manager-level authorization.

Features

  • Search for scheduled case assignments by technician

  • Find scheduled cases by work center

  • Discover doctor preferences by item and by work center
