Learning Center As our name suggests, we are all about service and support to you, our customer! Sure, we can not be personally available 24/7 however our reference center sure can be! 


So, as the team at Metron Support Services begins to launch the latest version of the Metron Imaging software, we want to introduce you to the Learning Center located on the Metron Support Services website. Here you will find online training sessions....from introductory "courses" if you are new to Metron, to advanced features including advanced image processing, creating forms and generating valuable reports in Metron. These training videos have been updated not only with a fresh look but also incorporating new tools available. 


As you view the videos, you will note new features promoted using "What's new in Metron 7" logo. And what is many of the features and benefits added to the software stem from ideas and requests from you...the user. YOU help to make Metron the best in digital imaging through your daily practice use.

You ask yourself, "How can it benefit our clients even more? How can I improve the quality of the images from the very first shot"? Time is valuable when shooting an X-Ray so you always want the process  to be efficient producing images which provide expert diagnostics from the very first look.

Support Services Highlight 
Why is my Internet so slow?


Slow Internet We have been asked this question a lot so we thought we would share a little information. Your Internet is slow in part because of how you use it today.  Four years ago, most of you were not sending X-Ray images to your radiology service, looking at lab results, letting your staff Facebook, or allowing staff personnel and clients to use your office wireless connection to access the Internet via their iPhones and Androids.


OK, so you could stop some of the less productive ways your Internet connection is being used.  But you already have critical, speed dependent ways you rely on the Internet that must continue.  You can no longer treat your Internet connection as a luxury.  We are nearing the age when business does not function without the real-time interconnections we share via the Internet.   Metron is now a product and a service that utilizes the Internet for image sharing and collaboration, technical support, and software updates.   You rely on Metron to send images to specialists and colleagues and Metron relies on a reliable and fast Internet connection to get the job done.  Have a lousy Internet connection and that all breaks down.


Your Internet is likely VERY slow in today's standards because you keep paying  for the same exact service you ordered 4+ years ago.  Your office Internet connection is causing a task or file transfer to take 50 minutes that on my home connection would only take 4 minutes.   I observe this all of the time. 


But how is this possible??   Aren't speeds getting faster all of the time?  Yes, they are getting a lot faster but not for you.  


Your current Internet Service Provider (ISP) is not being nice to you.    They are not proactively offering  you the speed increases at either no additional charge or for nominal fees.   They don't because they make more money keeping you on your current service plan.


You need to shop for alternate options, find them and then contact your current ISP to offer them the opportunity to respond with a reasonable solution or you will drop them.


Get the Internet you deserve.  Make those calls.   You will love your better, faster Internet and all of us that remotely support you will be happy too!
