So your LIMS solution is fully implemented, all the testing and documentation is complete, and you think you are ready to go-live. However, you know that if there are any glitches or if the users (lab technicians, scientists, supervisors, managers) have difficulties or get frustrated, then you laboratory information system implementation will fail. Go-live, as well as the next couple of weeks, may well the most critical timeframe in your long quest to improve the laboratory’s effectiveness, efficiency, productivity, information flow, and regulatory compliance.
How we can help you support your LIMS during go-live and beyond
CSols has been successfully implementing and delivering laboratory informatics solutions for over a decade. Our seasoned LIMS consultants, each of whom have an average of fifteen (15) years of experience, have developed a complete go-live support offering that we call Hyper-Care Support (HCS). HCS ensures that your LIMS will get deployed cleanly and all of the users will be delighted. The key to a successful LIMS go-live is training and support.
The LIMS training must be developed and delivered prior to the go-live date but no earlier than two weeks beforehand. Additionally, the LIMS training courses and materials must be configured and customized to not only reflect your system’s implementation but by role (i.e. lab technician, scientist, supervisor, system administrator, etc.) of the trainees. Additional training of your system administrator and super users should also be conducted in an informal, unstructured manner which we do by having our LIMS consultants sit side by side with your team leaders to transfer knowledge and the specifics of your LIMS solution.
However, despite all your efforts to train the users and administrators of the LIMS, there will inevitably be questions and hiccups when you officially go live. How this is handled is the true make or break test of your project. All of these questions and issues must be handled professionally, fully and rapidly or frustration will set in and your adoption rate will plummet. For this reason, CSols’ LIMS consultants provide both on-site and telephone support during this critical stage. Our experts will be there with your team to make sure that all questions and issues are handled.
