Valli Group/A H Mertons Opticians

A H Mertons and Valli Group say “Aye” to Replicate Retina data backup

A H Mertons is a family owned group of ophthalmic opticians established since 1977.  The group has seven branches across the North West, with practices in Merseyside, Warrington, Blackburn, Manchester, Stockport, Cheadle Hulme and Tameside.

Following a word of mouth referral, Replicate Retina was demonstrated at A H Merton’s Hyde head office.  Site visits were undertaken to assess how much data each practice held and to install the data backup software.  As a result, A H Mertons now backs up and protects all Eyecap retina scan images as well as their front of house data management system that records patient appointment/sales history and other business information.  Using Replicate Retina removes staff responsibility for backing up the data as it runs automatically every night and ensures each of the practices complies with clinical governance requirements.  This also gives reassurance that important data is backed up rather than leaving it open to an assumption.

Christine Wrenn, Director at A H Mertons and General Manager at the Valli Group, confirms:

“We like to deal with local businesses and the Replicate Retina team absolutely knew their stuff.  They were able to demonstrate the offsite data backup quickly and showed how easy it would be to recover data.  They talked to me in terms I could understand and were able to guide me on what we needed.”

A H Mertons has since become part of the Valli Group.  We are delighted that the Valli Group has chosen Replicate Retina as their preferred data backup supplier.
