Business Challenge

Despite its pioneering efforts and advancements in the field of medical imaging, 3DR Labs identified a critical bottleneck that could potentially hinder its mission to revolutionize radiology practices across the country. The challenge was multi-faceted: 

Software Development Processes: 3DR Labs had developed several software solutions internally to support its imaging services. However, the company recognized the need for these software pieces to evolve beyond their current capabilities to keep pace with the rapidly advancing radiology market and emerging medical imaging technologies. 

Next-Generation Software Requirements: The internal development team at 3DR Labs had reached a point where external expertise was necessary to scale their software solutions to the next generation. This included enhancing the software’s functionality, improving user experience, and integrating advanced artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities to further refine diagnostic processes. 

Market Expansion and Service Enhancement: To meet the growing demand for its specialized imaging services and maintain its leadership position, 3DR Labs needed to expand its technological capabilities. This expansion was not limited to software development but also encompassed the broader objective of enhancing its overall service offerings to radiology departments, necessitating a strategic partnership with a technology provider well-versed in the latest software development methodologies and AI innovations. 

3DR Labs faced a bottleneck in revolutionizing radiology due to outdated software and a lack of AI capabilities, necessitating external expertise to stay competitive in the fast-evolving medical imaging market.

“What SOLTECH does best is listen to our needs and expectations. They understand what we’re trying to accomplish. SOLTECH isn’t just a development team or a contracted third party — we have a true partnership. Working with them is seamless…”
