Who We Are
Blink has been developed by generationNET limited, a website development company from Leicester that began offering website development services to small businesses from all sectors in 2003.
Through the experience of friends and acquaintances in the world of optometry it was evident that there was room in the market for an easy to use Practice Management System, so generationNET developed their first desktop based opticians software system, using Visual Basic, around 2005.
Following the relative success of the first PMS and with the advances in cloud based systems on the horizon, the natural development path, and the way forward for opticians software, was to develop a new online system – so BlinkOMS was created.
Blink was launched early in 2011 and has since been modified and refined, in response to comments and requests that have come from existing and prospective customers.
GenerationNET Ltd formed by Terry Woodhouse. The business plan for the company was to provide internet based services to local companies throughout Leicestershire.
Terry was instrumental in the development of a Desktop based Practice Management System for Opticians.
GenerationNET developed and launched Blink OMS – a brand new PMS using up-to-date, cloud based technologies.
Updates to Blink allow for its use overseas – and our first US customer starts using Blink at their practice in Ohio.
Blink continues to develop and to serve more and more Opticians throughout the UK

As an Optometrist I wanted a practice Management system which was both easy to use and logical for Staff and Optometrists to learn quickly. In conjunction with Terry we developed the Blink system in the first instance as I wanted paperless clinical records for all of my practices without having to do daily in-store backups...Mr N.
