LIMS implementations are often under discussion and get deemed as long term expensive projects with high costs.
But why are these implementations so expensive?
Do they really have to take many months or years of time?
Can we still call it a product if it needs so many additional services?
We’ll explain why they don’t need to be so.
It starts with the LIMS Product.
The laboratory is a complicated part of many companies and institutes and therefore lab informatics and LIMS are treated as complex items. This is in a lot of cases the wrong starting point. Lab informatics should be there to help your staff and management teams to simplify that complexity, not to add another next level to it.
QLIMS from OnQ Software is designed to take this burden away and focus on the benefit of lab informatics.
Less admin, more science.
A unique user interface which has the ability for lab personnel or LIMS admins to design their own dashboards, modify pages, and workflows all in a simple interface reducing the need for clicking around. With cloud as the future, it also takes the burden away of servers, infrastructure, and reduces security risk.
Large Lab Informatics companies have a project-based organisation.
There is a difference in Lab Informatics companies. The majority of the larger providers implement a LIMS as a project with project managers, business consultants and technical people. A full team is needed to implement your LIMS. An implementation takes months if not years. It’s their business model. Did you ever realise how you can maintain this system with your staff if the vendor needs a full team for the implementation? Do we not miss the purpose of Lab Informatics to streamline data in a manageable way by a manageable system?
Then when it comes to scale your business or add new tests the process and costs start again.
OnQ Software believes strongly that companies should benefit from Lab Informatics as a product and not a project. QLIMS packages can be implemented, then after the initial installation training is delivered by the ‘train the trainer’ principle. ‘Not in months, but in weeks and in case of the SaaS-model, in days there can be a system to start using! And yes… OnQ Software and its partners are available to support you.
Just check your offer from your LIMS vendor and compare the price of the software with the price of the implementation….Interested in an alternative?
