MMG Fusion, the provider of the only all-in-on market software solution for the dental industry has been selected as a 2017 recipient of the Cellerant “Best of Class” Technology Award. This is the second year running that MMG Fusion has been selected as “Best of Class”.
Now in its ninth year, The Cellerant “Best of Class” Technology Award is one of the most prestigious dental industry honors recognizing innovation from manufacturers and service providers. “MMG Fusion still sets the pace for integrated practice marketing solutions. They continue to add significant capability to the platform and did so again in 2017 with the launch of the game changing ChairFill module,” said Dr. Lou Shuman, Best of Class Founder and Cellerant CEO.
“The recent introduction of ChairFill has already attracted significant customer and industry attention,” said Paul Intlekofer, CEO of MMG Fusion. “ChairFill is unique in that it matches openings in the office schedule with the most productive dentistry from both new and existing patients. Once the ideal patients are identified by ChairFill’s proprietary algorithms, the program automates the process of scheduling existing patients with voice, text or even video and will also initiate the ideal marketing campaign to convert new patients.”
“Best of Class” recipients are chosen by a panel comprised of leading voices in dental technology, who come together each year to discuss, debate and decide what products merit recognition. “We research the best available technologies for an entire year leading up to the announcement of award winners” said Dr. Marty Jablow. “To be selected as “Best of Class” after all of that scrutiny and deliberation means that our panel is confident in recommending winning technologies to our peers”.
In addition to Dr. Shuman, the 2017 “Best of Class” panel consisted of Dr. John Flucke, Technology Editor for Dental Products Report; Paul Feuerstein, DMD, Technology Editor for Dentistry Today; Marty Jablow, DMD, known as America’s Technology Coach; and Parag Kachalia, DDS, Vice-Chair of Preclinical Education, Research and Technology, University of Pacific School of Dentistry.
“MMG Fusion is once again humbled and delighted to have been recognized by this distinguished panel of the most tech savvy opinion leaders in dentistry,” said Mr. Intlekofer.
