Weave, Lehi, Utah, announced the release of Team Chat, their latest communications tool for orthodontic practices. Team Chat gives offices one central location for all staff conversations and external patient-facing communication.

The new tool can be used on both desktop and mobile platforms.

Team Chat can be used for both individual and group conversations. Chat groups allow teams to communicate messages to a specific group of people, which, according to the company, removes unneeded communication clutter from the rest of the team.

Private chats allow two team members to communicate when there’s no need to involve an entire group or when more private or specific information needs to be shared.

Notifications make team members aware of any relevant messages. These alerts appear on desktop and mobile devices, making messages available in a variety of situations, whether that’s working with patients or with other staff members.
