3Shape launches two new solutions for labs — 3Shape Press

Introducing our first ever 3Shape Lab Management Software and the new dual model 3Shape F8 lab scanner

Copenhagen, February 23, 2023 – Today at LMT® LAB DAY® in Chicago, 3Shape introduced 3Shape Lab Management Software (LMS) - its first-ever lab management solution, as well as an all-new dual model 3Shape F8 lab scanner.

“This is a huge step for 3Shape. We are now helping labs to manage their business more efficiently. The new 3Shape LMS will significantly streamline a lab’s everyday work with its tight integration to our Dental System CAD design software, TRIOS, and client-communications applications,” says Rune Fisker, 3Shape Senior Vice President for Product Strategy.

“At the same time, with the introduction of the brand-new 3Shape F8 lab scanner and its open-shaped design, labs can now work faster as well as scan articulators upright, triple trays, die-in-models and much more, quickly and accurately,” he adds.

3Shape Lab Management Software

Today, many dental labs still manage their cases and clients manually. From emails to post-its, messages from dentists and staff can be found (or sometimes lost) anywhere in the lab, complex restorative workflows are unnecessarily cumbersome due to poor integrations, and communication challenges with clients are common.

Now, in the very same way that 3Shape has helped labs to optimize and digitize their design and production workflows with our award-winning CAD solutions, we introduce a cloud-based Lab Management Software to help them run their business more efficiently and digitally as well.

3Shape LMS provides integrated workflow management for all types of cases, digital as well as analog. It empowers dental labs to be more efficient in their everyday tasks and to nurture client relationships built on better customer communications and improved tracking of orders, cases, and invoices.

Three ways 3Shape LMS will help dental labs to manage their business:

  1. ORGANIZE EVERY CASE - 3Shape LMS saves labs time by managing all digital and analog cases in a single, simplified, and compliant system so labs can meet their deadlines easier.
  2. TRANSFORM EVERY CLIENT RELATIONSHIP - Designed for transparency, 3Shape LMS helps you manage your doctors’ expectations and effortlessly collaborate with them using communication portals and a smartphone App.
  3. STREAMLINE EVERY TASK - 3Shape LMS reduces a lab's administrative and data entry with efficient management of production lines, billing, and integrated workflows with TRIOS and Dental System. 3Shape LMS can be used in the lab or remotely.

3Shape LMS is available in two versions: 3Shape LMS Essentials and 3Shape LMS Premium. 3Shape LMS Essentials, which focuses exclusively on case management, is available globally from May 2023. and is free to use. 3Shape LMS Premium, which will include case management, client communication and lab efficiency tools such as billing and production scheduling is available from today in a limited open beta version for select regions.
