Your challenges as a laboratory manager

Let’s face it – the demands on your laboratory work are constantly growing. Increasing amounts of data, strict regulations and careful sample storage are increasingly challenging you and your staff. The processes and requirements for you as a laboratory manager are becoming more complex, the degree of difficulty in complying with guidelines and standards is increasing, as is the amount of instrument data that is being generated.

At the same time, your company demands that you increase the performance of the lab and turn your lab into a profit center.

On an ongoing basis, you need to initiate optimization measures. Above all, shortening the lab turnaround time is considered one of the major challenges. In addition to in-depth reporting and ever more comprehensive reports, the pressure to avoid errors, for example, is growing. This primarily concerns your certificates and test reports.

There is also an increasing need for higher data availability and integration in the laboratory. For example – everyone in the team and the departments involved would like to be able to access all relevant data sets from anywhere, and they would like less work through automated processes. The goals frequently mentioned by our customers here probably also coincide with yours: the reduction of administrative activities. The increase in efficiency – especially in resource planning, as well as the avoidance of bottleneck effects, mainly in the release process.

Many Lab Managers we know had previously used different software tools as isolated applications (e.g., Office applications, e.g., Excel & Access). They were used as test and measurement equipment, which were not directly compatible with each other, and they transferred and exchanged the data manually. This increased the risk of errors during input and transfer and cost valuable time.

At the same time, test data and reports must be prepared and forwarded to the various team in the company increasing pressure to be punctual, error-free and meaningful, while at the same time, meeting shorter deadlines requirements.

Moreover, you need to drive the change-management-process and modernization of the lab. In short, the solution to your increasing challenges in the laboratory could be a modern and highly integrated software platform that is networked with your entire quality management and all stakeholders in your company.

This is where we come in – providing you with the solutions to better manage your challenges.
