Things To Know Before Installing LIMS

Testing, reporting, documentation of reports, etc. are some of the few tasks that need to be executed without any glitches every single time.

Turnaround time to go LIVE

At the outset, moving business and operational processes to an LIMS software is not a regular shift. It is definitely not a cumbersome one, but requires a standard turnaround time to get processes online. And, in the case, you choose to add customisations to your LIMS to suit your business, it will take time longer than usual to setup.

Additional IT support

An essential part of moving to an LIMS is the technical know-how for your staff and their technological savviness. That means you will need to give your staff the necessary training to handle the software and equip them with enough allied technical knowledge to deal with basic IT situations on their own. And if your not ready to invest in your staff training, then are you willing to employ professional IT support on a regular basis?

Cost vs Flexibility

An LIMS is usually a full-fledged package, like a standard module. But chances are more that you would be looking for a system that complements your business operations and practices. It is better to have a module in place that caters to your needs than changing your processes to suit the module. So maybe a standard software can be economically feasible for your business but it cause more work than usual.
