A multinational biotechnology company was utilizing a number of different laboratory software systems (COTS and “home grown”) to help manage the data and work processes within its laboratories. The company is a long term LabWare LIMS user but had not taken full advantage of all the functionality and capabilities available within the system. Additionally, there were quite a number of manual, labor intensive processes as well as sub optimized automated workflows, utilized within the labs, reducing productivity and data quality.
CSols, Inc. was engaged to provide independent, unbiased requirements and needs assessment and solution optimization and design support. Additionally, CSols was engaged to provide project oversight and communications facilitation as well as CSV planning and execution. CSols was selected to provide these services based on our LabWare LIMS, Business Analyst and Computer System Validation expertise. The client’s choice of CSols was also driven by our extensive domain (industry, lab type, etc.) experience and by recommendations and references provided by the client’s own staff who had successfully worked with CSols on other projects.
