Opticians Hand Over Solutions

LRS UK has pioneered the opticians handover


Used throughout the United Kingdom, and since then have been rolled out worldwide. The LRS Handover Pager Systems for opticians are flexible, powerful and will make your practice efficient and more profitable.
They are designed to offer the following features and benefits:

The solutions allows the optometrist in the test room to press a button and page staff with any of five messages - here's some examples, but you can have others of your own choosing:

1. Dispense.
2. Fields.
3. Pre-Test.
4. Contact Lenses.
5. Panic.

In fact you can choose to have any five messages of your choice for your practice to suit the way that you operate. You can have just a one button test room transmitter purely for handovers. The handover pager system will also maximize the optometrist’s time.
Our handover pager system can be programmed to operate in a number of different ways to suit the operation of your practice - check below for operational examples:

Butler XP
These low cost ONE or TWO button transmitters comes complete. The button can be custom programmed to send out a message (silently) to staff or a manager with an alphanumeric pager. The Butler II alternative (not shown) operates on either 3 x AAA batteries and the Butler XP uses 2 x AA batteries. We also have an optional mains kit for either unit. but batteries will last some time.

 opticall OptiCall 6 button units: When you need multiple messaging as described below the OptiCall 6 button units are required.

These low cost SIX button transmitters come complete with a fitting kits. The buttons can be custom programmed to send out messages (silently) to staff or a manager with an alphanumeric pager. The OptiCall uses 2 x AAA batteries. We also have an optional mains kit available. But batteries will last for some time.

Example Operational Methodology:


Manager Lead System:

The system works by transmitting a message to the pager which the MANAGER ONLY has. The
manager chooses which OA goes to the test room.

ADVANTAGE: The Manager is in charge of who goes to which test room.

DISADVANTAGE: The Managers work load is increased considerably in busy times.

System comprises of: Transmitters for each test room and 1 pager for the Manager (+ 1 spare)


Buddy System:

Each test room sends a message to a specific dispenser or number of dispensers who service that specific room.

ADVANTAGE: The Buddy system builds a team rapport and brings an element of competition to the business.

DISADVANTAGE: It can be difficult to ensure sufficient cover for the whole day.

System comprises of: Transmitters for each test room and 1 - 3 pagers for each test room depending on the staff utilisation on site.

Whole Team System:

Each test room has a transmitter which activates ALL pagers on the site – the next available OA goes to the test room to meet the customer.

Much more staff available at any time – but all staff do need to be aware of how the system works on site.

DISADVANTAGE: Provision needs to be made for lunch time and busy periods as well as what the expectations of them are. This is the preferred LRS System.

System comprises of: Transmitters for each test room. 8 - 16 pagers (one for each staff member)
but quantity of pagers depends on the number of staff on site.

Buddy & Manager Led System:

If there are five test rooms or less you can have a buddy system and a manager pager - the manager
will be paged from all rooms - This is then a back up for the buddy for if the buddy is busy with a client -
it works very well when the re-paging facility is activated on the system.


Butler II (five button)
The low-cost, short-range paging solution. This slim, five-button unit attaches to almost any surface. Each button can be programmed to silently page a staff member or manager wearing an LRS alphanumeric pager.

Alternatively you can now use the OptiCall unit which we developed for Opticians handover specifically which has 6 buttons.
