topsOrtho™ Version 4.0 Released

Data loads at the speed of sound; Imaging greatly enhanced

ATLANTA, Aug. 30, 2010—tops Software is pleased to announce the release of topsOrtho™ version 4.0, a significant update to the company’s flagship product.

topsOrtho is the leading Mac-based practice management and imaging system for orthodontics.

Version 4.0 boosts the system’s already astonishing data speeds by as much as 500 percent, with no sacrifice in image quality.

Customers will see dramatically faster image loads, patient chart loads and nightly rollovers, even when working in a satellite or home office.

“topsOrtho’s legendary speed and stability is what our customers value most, so we constantly work to strengthen those attributes,” said Michael Ledford, who spearheaded programming for the year-long project.

In addition to faster data speeds, image editing is greatly enhanced in version 4.0. topsOrtho now automatically scales images being imported, so users no longer need a supplemental program for that task. And new tools provide quick, consistent editing.

“Imaging may be our best-kept secret,” said tops Software Founder and CEO Dr. Mark Sanchez. “topsOrtho is the only orthodontic practice management software with built-in imaging. Our customers don’t have to buy – or pay support fees for – an image editing program. This saves thousands annually.”

4.0 also allows topsEcho™, the upcoming iPhone app for topsOrtho customers, to quickly retrieve quality patient images over an ordinary cell phone connection.

Version 4.0 is a “major engine overhaul of topsOrtho,” Sanchez said. “Most of the improvements are ‘under the hood,’ so users won’t necessarily see a lot of changes. It’s kind of like rewiring your house’s electrical system instead of adding a pool. But 4.0 is the foundation for some fantastic things to come…so the pool will be here soon.”
