Optical software provider Ocuco has acquired See20/20, the supplier of an entirely cloud-based practice management system for opiticians, for an undisclosed sum.

The deal will enable Ocuco to expand on its current UK market presence in cloud-based practice management solutions.

“The acquisition of See20/20 will extend our already existing capability to offer cloud-based (software-as-a-service) practice management solutions to opticians,” said Ocuco CEO Leo MacCanna, who founded the company in Dublin in 1993.

“We plan to improve See20/20 by integrating it with our OptiCommerce, adding an online sales and appointment booking channel to See20/20’s customers’ practices. We are also looking forward to benefitting from See20/20’s excellent pool of experienced talent in the development of cloud-based practice management solutions,” MacCanna added.

Following the acquisition, See20/20 founder Andy Chance-Hill will take over as the divisional director for the business. He and the rest of the See20/20 team will be located at Ocuco’s new offices in Brierley Hill, near Birmingham, UK.

The See20/20 product will continue to be supported and all staff will join the Ocuco team.
