ACEP believes in anticipating opticians’ needs for sales-support solutions and offering them access to all the innovations and new-generation tools that are essential to their fast-changing profession. The business was created some 20 years ago and offers a range of high added-value measurement solutions, developed upstream with leading lens manufacturers, to respond to the needs of eyewear customers and the specific features of the latest-generation lenses. As the inventor of the first systems to help customers choose their frames in 1994, the first touch-screens in 1997 and the Smart Kiosk column in 2000, ACEP continues to innovate and is now offering tablet-based solutions in addition to its measurement systems.
Tablet-based solutions integrate the most powerful augmented-reality simulations on the market and help the optician to advise customers with presbyopia on choosing progressive lenses for their near-vision requirements. ACEP devotes over 28 % of its sales to research and development and has its own production and R&D centre in the Loiret region of France to guarantee the reliability, ease of use and precision of its systems. Opticians operate in a fiercely competitive environment and are faced with a clear need to set themselves apart following the arrival of the internet in the market. ACEP’s solutions can help strengthen their image as professionals and bolster their range of high-end lenses while saving valuable time thanks to their ease of use.
