OPTIC is reach in features, reliable, responsive and robust, used 24/7 by thousands of concurrent users as daily tool. Along the years, considerable development effort has produced a stable and secure platform, all data being stored in reliable cloud servers in Canada, focused on privacy and not shared with any third-party. The platform continues to evolve, gradually adding more features, based on customer feedback.
OPTIC Mobile: Our mobile application (Android & iOS) complements the Web application and there is no additional cost to use it. Please see MOBILE section for details.
Online Training (OPTIC LMS): Add-on module (additional subscription required), released August 2019 - allowing taking online training within OPTIC. Essentially any training material can be uploaded (MP4, AVI, PDF, Power Point, Word, etc. files) or linked externally (YouTube, Vimeo, etc. files). Quiz questions can be defined with with a rich set of configurations (PASS criteria as 75% correct answers, quiz timeouts, mandatory questions, single or multiple answers. etc.). Employees review the training material and answer the quiz. If PASSED, a standard training record is appended to employee's training profile together with a QR code certificate and supervisors / managers / administrative personnel are notified about the new training taken through business rules (similar notifications on FAIL). We are also offering an API for retrieving training data (JSON format) and training certificates. Cost: $3 / ACTIVE LMS user per month. Volume discounts apply. No setup or hidden fees, no minimum number of users, no long-term commitments (month-to-month), no cancellation fees.

Integration with EAGLE GPS: Commercial containers, trucks, cars, various hardware, computers, etc. or employees tracked through EAGLE GPS platform can be linked to OPTIC equipment or employees and when that link is established, their geolocation is available in OPTIC as well. EAGLE GPS is a completely different product, fully developed, owned and maintained by Friendly Eagle Software Inc. For details, please visit www.eaglegps.ca (separate subscription required).
LMS / Training Bridges: Add-on feature (additional subscription required), allowing daily training data importing from other LMS / Online Training platforms through API calls: BIS Trainer, OSG Online (former Online Learning Enterprises), Yardstick / Rapid LMS (We Know Training / Danatech).
Data Bridges (FTP): Automate data movement from your systems / applications or database environments, such as HR/payroll apps, to OPTIC – usually as data in CSV (Comma-Separated Values) format. The cost of developing such bridges may range from $1,200 to $4,500 depending on complexity. There is no way to provide a precise evaluation of the cost, as all depends on the specific data structure, data volume and pre-processing that needs to be done, e.g. to correct date formats, remove invalid characters or padding spaces, classify/centralize/convert data, etc.
OPTIC API: The API allows creating/updating or exporting live OPTIC records (single or multiple) as well as downloading files or documents from external / third-party Web links (URLs) and linking them to records. Enabling the API is a one-time fee of $900. Customizations of the API may be done an extra cost.
Electronic Forms (Templates): We encourage our customers to convert their paper forms (e.g. inspection forms) into electronic format themselves, with minimal assistance from us (Technical Support). If fully done by us, the cost for those forms (one or two pages, basic forms) is $300 a piece or $1000 for a group of four. Complex forms are done based on an approved statement of work. Once built, they can be used to create/update an unlimited number of records (e.g. inspection or job hazard assessment forms, but not limited to those).
New Features and Custom Development: We can develop new features targeted to your own specific requirements. The changes must not impact normal operation of other customers and they must be consistent with the application, overall. Such developments are executed based on an approved statement of work - providing an hourly estimate. Results are gradually visible and we interact closely with our customers to get their feedback as things move forward. Developments benefiting other OPTIC customers are executed at 50% of total cost.
Technical Support: Included automatically through the DEFAULT SOFTWARE. We have the reputation of a very responsive and outstanding Technical Support, resolving any potential issues as quickly as possible - keeping our customers informed along the way. We are also listening to customer feedback, incorporating as much as possible according to our development agenda or as custom (financially assisted) development.
For the DEFAULT SOFTWARE (Web and mobile apps), without the Online Training add-on, data/LMS bridges or software customizations, the fee is dynamically established depending on the number of active employees.

Basic Technical Support is included. There is no long-term contract - only 30 days advance notice to stop using the system, without any cancellation penalty. During initial setup (indicated as "setup" above), we could import/transfer data from other systems, including files/documents/attachments, linking them to records - or from basic Excel or CSV files (e.g. First Name, Last Name, Department, Job Title, Email, Address, etc). With an empty, default database, we could launch your OPTIC platform even within one hour!
The system has to work for you and your business - as a useful HSE tool, providing the information you need, when you need it.
