LEHI, Utah, Sept. 26, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Podium, the leading customer communication platform for local businesses, today announced a strategic partnership with Cloud 9, one of the orthodontic industry providers of cloud-based practice management solutions. This partnership will allow orthodontic practices the ability to integrate their practice management data with Podium's unique messaging and online review products.
"Over the last eight years, Cloud 9 has been a trusted partner for orthodontists," said Reid Simmons, cofounder and President of Cloud 9. "Over that time, we have constantly been refining how to bring practice management into the cloud and improve the way orthodontists run their practice. Thanks to this partnership with Podium, we are able to better use and automate their data to improve patient interaction and make it easier than ever for our customers to be found. We are proud that this partnership allows Podium and Cloud 9 clients to be at the forefront of that development."
Through automating online review invitations, patients who have recently completed a transaction are sent an invitation to review the practice via text within minutes, when reviews are most accurate and likely to be acted on. This integration will save orthodontists time as well as increasing the number and quality of their online reviews of their practice on Google, Facebook, Healthgrades and other key sites customers use when deciding where to find their orthodontist.
"Cloud 9 has been one leading forces providing tech solutions in the orthodontic industry," said Brad Jenson, VP of Business Development at Podium. "This was a key factor in Podium choosing them as a close, operational partner. Adding Cloud 9's data integration to Podium's powerful online review and two-way messaging products will supercharge their user's competitive advantage in bringing in new patients and keeping them for their lifetime."
Podium modernizes the way business happens locally with products designed to help businesses be found, chosen, and gain insight into their customers' experience. By conveniently facilitating millions of customer interactions, such as driving customer-generated online reviews and providing improved customer communication tools, Podium currently serves over 20,000 local businesses in creating over 4 million customer interactions every month.
