The 100 plus pages of RFP you put together in search for the perfect clinic management software are behind you. Forgotten are the proposals you had to review. The software demos you plowed through. You've purchased the Ahlers Integrated Solutions software, and now you're remembering why.
  • You remember the phone conversations with Rich, Gary, or Sam. Come to think of it, they were either available or called you back within the hour. And they were able to speak English rather than computerese!
  • You remember the set-up guides Gary helped you work through so that your training was in your control… training about you and not some fictitious agency resembling you. You remember Gary's patient responses to your many questions. And his cheerful, probing questions that helped you get clear about some confusion you now can't recall.
  • You remember trusting Rich Ahlers' personal promise that the Ahlers training staff would be readily available. They would allow ample time, he said, to personally train any and all AIS users at your office anywhere in the United States within a week after you had completed your on site preparations.

"Yes, but that was before we signed on the dotted line. What about now?" What if it's not true that Ahlers & Associates has had twenty-seven years exceeding client expectations? Will Ahlers really stand by us in the long run?

New Beginnings: In Better Hands with Ahlers

Ahlers' trainers understand that becoming an expert navigator in the Ahlers Integrated Solutions System is an on-going process (After all, public health care's never-ending rules and regulations make yours a challenging business.). But you can be a competent AIS user in a matter of hours. Ahlers figures it's hard enough to make a good software decision. The software should be simple, the support solid. It should prove its worth to you right away, making nagging worries of possible disappointment a distant memory.

Now that you've purchased the AIS, the trainer who has coached you from the beginning calls you promptly. "Are you on track?" "Are you able to solve your problems?" Not prompt enough for you? Rest easy. If you place the call first, and he or she is not immediately available, they will be within the hour. Just like before you bought AIS. Remember? We know, this is a new experience for you, but we think waiting for 3 days (3 weeks or even forever!) infuriates you as much as it does us!

Training Should Soften the Hard Effect of New Rules on Your Agency and Your Software

Ahlers, because of twenty-seven years in our unique role as data contractor to manage data collection and reports for 14 state health departments, is more knowledgeable about rule changes than any other non-profit health-care software developer in the United States. States invite President Joe Ahlers to help clarify the new rules and smooth the transition for all agencies that have to abide by those changes. Where other software developers react to your request for changes (or not in the worst case scenarios), Ahlers is able to be proactive for you. We tell you what the changes are and interpret the impact those changes will have on you. And, of course, we make the software changes you need and train your clinic staff on those changes. We have yet to miss one of our deadlines. In short, there's a strong probability you'll meet yours time and again!

If keeping up with changing rules and regulations were only bothersome, it wouldn't be so bad. But in your business it's worse than that. Not keeping up is a guarantee that you lose money you're entitled to. And you need it to serve your clients at the level that makes you proud. Clear and simple, you would lose monies you need to keep clinic doors open should required software changes and training on those changes lag. With Ahlers by your side, however, those concerns are ungrounded. You can go about your business on solid footing. Others have for years. Ask them (consult our reference section for an Ahlers client near you).
