benefit of storing your patient’s dental images in the cloud is being able to tly reduce and even eliminate your expenses for servers.

Did you know switching to a cloud-based open-architecture imaging software can save you $1.7 million—like it did with American Dental Partners?  

Open architecture prevents you from being locked into software that only works with a specific imaging device. Imaging software—both cloud and on-premise—that aren’t open architecture makes it difficult for you to customize your practice with hardware and software best suited for you, your practice, and your patients.

2. Support Included

Are you debating on whether you need to purchase a support subscription? Are you worried about going over your capped support time limit and having to pay extra?  

These are a few concerns many practices think about when their imaging software doesn’t include support. 

Several dental solutions, both cloud and on-premise, offer support at an additional cost. These support service charges can vary from yearly to hourly to even minute by minute.

 Apteryx XVWeb’s all-inclusive cloud imaging monthly subscription includes support without capping the time or number of tickets. With included support, costs stay predictable for your practice as you don’t have to budget and keep track of additional add-on costs.  

You also save time through our ticketing system to ensure you can get back to your dental practice without waiting on the phone for hours. 

We value your time and want to assist you in the best way possible. We proudly reject the idea of penalizing you for additional support and want you to feel comfortable asking any number of questions. 

 3. Automatic Software Updates

With performance enhancement, new features, security updates, and bug fixes, software updates are crucial to your dental practices. Since on-premise solutions are server-based systems and don’t utilize cloud, manual software updates are needed. This can be tedious and especially problematic if things don’t go as planned.

 To avoid this time-consuming and costly process, Apteryx XVWeb Cloud Imaging updates automatically. You no longer need to purchase a separate service for updates, worry about being on time, or allocate time to download the updated version. 

Apteryx will keep your software updated without user intervention, so your practice can function efficiently and productively. 

 4. Subscription Based

The best parts about a subscription-based imaging system are both the easily trackable recurring monthly cost and Apteryx’s tiered pricing system based on the number of workstations and storage you need.  

Only one subscription is required per practice regardless of the number of locations or workstations. This can especially help save money for practices with many offices.

With on-premise software and some cloud imaging, many features and services are often priced individually. This makes it more difficult to track your spending with costs adding up and placing a strain on your budget, which can feel overwhelming at times.

In addition to the cost of the imaging solution, on-premise software have additional costs you need to be aware of:

6. Unlimited Storage

What do I do if I’m looking to increase my storage with an on-premise imaging software? Since on-premise solutions typically have limited physical storage, it’s very common for practices to purchase more space and support for the increased data storage. 

This poses a major concern for growing practices as additional storage is costly. Apteryx XVWeb Cloud Imaging provides an inexpensive solution for these practices with the capability of unlimited image storage.
