DOTmed: What makes you most proud of your company?
We are proud of our flawless reputation in the industry. Whether you ask an Ophthalmologist in our industry or a manufacturer executive, they will have nothing but positive things to say about Laser Locators. Our philosophy of "always doing the right thing" is easier said than done. We are confident in stating that our reputation can be verified by anyone in the industry that has done business with our company.
However, we are most proud that we have created a great work environment for our staff which has attracted the most talented Professionals in the industry.
DOTmed: What new or recent technology is 'hot' in your field?
We recently purchased the first Femtosecond Cataract laser on the used market. We feel this will be the next big wave of the used laser market and are excited to be the first company trained and involved on how to de-install, ship and care for a femtosecond cataract laser.
We believe the hottest technology to come up on the used market is Femtosecond Cataract lasers. Due to our excellent reputation the manufacturers have embraced our involvement. They support us and our customers in the resale. The manufacturers have also been instrumental in giving us the training and support needed to properly de-install and refurbish these lasers.
Having the manufacturers support will insure that the buyer will get the product and support they will need to implement this new technology successfully into their practice.
DOTmed: What are the biggest challenges and opportunities that you face?
In our business we don’t manufacture any products. Therefore we are always managing our buying and selling strategy. While always striving to offer fair deals, we must manage that against the ability to show a profit after all the expenses we incur from these large purchases.
The opportunities continue to show themselves. Although the obvious femtosecond cataract lasers we have purchased are exciting. There is also some less known companies that have developed fantastic products. It is important to do thorough due diligence when taking on a new product line. We have had great success in choosing the new product lines that we represent.
DOTmed: What outside forces are affecting your business the most?
The economy continues to drive our segment. Our persistence in being a detail oriented company has given the Drs. confidence that we will give them the best available products and support in our industry.
