The D4W Cloud gives you the freedom of having your practice management software online without having to sacrifice the comprehensive features of Dental4Windows that has made it the favourite choice of Australian dentists.
"Patients can now move between our clinics and have their records / x-rays / images seamlessly stored in the one database. It is also now easier for me to run management reports to see how all the clinics are going. For my managers, if there is ever any issue with a particular patient, they can look up the patient file in any clinic they are working in. A much improved outcome!"
Dr David Lin BDSc, Principal Dental Surgeon, of ABC Dental and D4W Cloud customer. Dr Lin has four surgeries located in Sydney.
How is D4W Cloud different from the classic Dental4Windows?
Cloud computing is a general term for the delivery of hosted services over the Internet. That means that we, Centaur Software, deliver D4W Cloud to you over the internet and we provide and manage the entire IT backup and storage so you don’t have to. Support and free upgrades are provided as part of the fixed monthly fee. There’s no upfront payment, apart from set up and training, and no separate Support & Maintenance payments. We are also offering D4W Subscription for those who prefer the software in practice as opposed to in the Cloud, but don’t want to buy Dental4Windows outright. No other dental practice management solution gives you those choices.
Benefits of online/cloud dental practice management software for single and multi-site dental practices
Freedom to access your dental software solution, whenever and wherever you are.
Now with D4W Cloud you have the freedom to log in with your own password wherever - at home, work or at a conference at any time of the day or night. When it suits you. That means you can access what’s important without necessarily being in the practice. That gives you freedom and also allows you to be in control of your business even if you’re not in the practice. And if you’re running more than one practice, that’s indispensable. It even runs on a Mac!
If you are a multi-location practice you can store your data on a single, universal database (with the option of separate databases if you prefer).
If you have more than one practice then you may want to have a single data base for all of your practices to centralise business operations. If that’s how you want to manage them then that is now available. Alternatively, you could have them in the Cloud and manage them separately if that suits your reporting processes better.
No more time consuming data backup. Automatic data backup at secure servers located in Australia in real time.
With our new D4W Cloud now you don’t have to worry about cumbersome manual backups because they’re automatically applied in the Cloud. We do all the heavy lifting for you so your load is light. As stated, the servers are based in Australia and we’ve installed safeguards and procedures to make sure the security of your data is maintained. Secure as a bank – it actually is, with the authenticated and encrypted communication protocol already widely used on the internet, particularly in banking and payment systems.
Reduced IT costs
No more complicated IT networking required. As long as you have a good internet provider, with Cloud it’s taken care of over the internet and should be a fraction of the cost.
Free updates and new features
All new upgrades, including new standard features, are provided free of charge and automatically. That includes new compliance standards added to D4W Cloud which means you are always up to date. Regular updates and new features will be added automatically, including the latest appointment and recall automation features. There’s no downtime and no disruption to the business.
One fixed monthly fee
One of the great benefits to many businesses of Cloud products is that they run on a SaaS (Software as a Service) model. What is that? That means that rather than an initial large cost (capital cost) to own the product you pay a fixed monthly fee (operating cost) to obtain the right to use the solution. With D4W Cloud the only upfront cost will be set up and training. There will be one monthly fixed fee and the option to add on extra modules for an additional fee.
D4W Cloud comes packaged with Mediasuite so your imaging software requirements are taken care of at no extra cost. To view all the features of Mediasuite Digital Imaging Software, view its product page. Also, there are extra modules, such as Sterilisation, Stock Control, eAppointments and xPlain Patient Education available for an extra monthly fee
All you’ve come to expect from classic Dental4Windows
The great thing about D4W Cloud is it doesn’t sacrifice the abundance of features in classic Dental4Windows, which means if you know Denta4Windows then you’ll know D4W Cloud. And you can obtain all the new integrated eServices, including our integrated online patient booking engine, eAppointments and our new integrated electronic patient forms, eForms all for one fixed monthly fee.
New Cloud releases
We will also be releasing Mediasuite as a stand alone cloud version and Practice Studio Cloud is also to be released. eAppointments is delivered online and soon to be released is eForms, our electronic patient forms, integrated with D4W, which is available online.
We understand Cloud isn’t for everyone.
We understand dentists and practices are unique and there is not a “one-size-fits-all” solution. That’s why we now have a range of methods as to how Dental4Windows can be delivered in your practice(s). If you’d rather buy Dental4Windows outright, that’s still available, but now you have the option to gain the benefits of Dental4Windows for a fixed monthly fee. Also, if Cloud isn’t an option for you, you still can, with D4W Subscription, pay a fixed monthly fee and have Dental4Windows set up in your practice. It’s all about making Australia’s favourite dental practice management solution accessible to as many practices as possible.
