Docpoint synchronization application is a tool that transfers appointment data from Open Dental to Docpoint Web Service, and vice versa. This tool works as a cross vendor database replication to carry out, create, update, and cancel operations, in a cycle that is executed every 1 minute.
To make this synchronization work, Docpoint Application creates a local database (SQLite) on the client machine. This works as an intermediate layer that keeps track of every single appointment created in Open Dental and Docpoint. This layer also works as a buffer in case of an internet outage.
