NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--QSpex, the innovators of same-day personalized delivery prescription eyewear, is pleased to announce the launch of a QSpex Optical Service Center™ in New York City. Beginning Summer 2015, eye-care providers in the New York City metropolitan area will have the opportunity to offer their patients QSpex’s premium product lineup and unique QSpex Concierge™ delivery service.
The QSpex business model allows for Fast-Traq™, same-day personalized delivery of a premium finished eyewear product, by operating local QSpex Optical Service Centers™ in the same community as, and in close proximity to, eye-care providers. Unlike traditional eyewear production techniques, QSpex lenses are manufactured and finished just miles from the eye-care provider’s practice. This model allows QSpex to build a number of financially and practically efficient Optical Service Centers in markets around the world. As part of QSpex’s rapid global expansion, the New York City location is one of many QSpex Optical Service Centers™ planned to open this year.
QSpex is transforming the traditional lens manufacturing industry by introducing a personalized, service-based option in which consumers don’t have to sacrifice quality for convenience. “We are excited to offer New York City consumers something they have never experienced before – customized prescription eyewear, delivered same-day via QSpex Concierge™, a personalized delivery and dispensing service direct to the consumers’ location of choice” said Brett Craig, President and CEO. The high-speed, proprietary QSpex manufacturing process permits patient fulfillment in hours, while providing superior prescription eyewear, through a groundbreaking lens transfer system. QSpex also specializes in a revolutionary back-end delivery service that offers Fast-Traq™ same-day fulfillment to eye-care providers via a QSpex branded logistics fleet. Danny Cruz, VP, explained “QSpex’s unique service offering completely aligns with, and supports, the fast-paced lifestyle of New York City consumers, who will no longer need to disrupt their schedules or suffer long wait times to receive high quality finished eyewear.”
QSpex plans to continue deployment of locally-based Optical Service Centers across the globe, making it possible to offer same-day delivery of prescription eyewear and provide unmatched personalized “direct to consumer” delivery and dispensing service to a variety of regions across the geographical constituencies of the world.
QSpex will hold a press conference to announce the launch of the New York City Optical Service Center on Friday, March 20, 2015 at 2:00 PM EST at Vision Expo East. The press conference will be held in the Glass Room located on Level 3, Crystal Palace in the Javits Center, 655 W 34th Street, New York, NY 10001.
QSpex was recently nominated as one of the Top 10 Innovative Technology Companies in Georgia by the Technology Association of Georgia (TAG). In addition, The Atlanta Journal Constitution (AJC) awarded QSpex as one of the Top 100 Best Places to Work in Atlanta in 2015.
