White Paper: "5 Tips for Choosing the Right Informatics Solution"

Partner with CSols for your vendor selection project and benefit from our expertise in these three service offerings:

(1) LIMS and ELN Business Analysis

A CSols needs analysis is the best way to discover, define, and document your laboratory and business needs and pave the way for a successful LIMS or ELN purchase.

Our strategic experts have years of laboratory knowledge working at the bench in a wide variety of laboratory disciplines and use our proven process to gather, develop, and document your business needs. Our business analysis process also leverages our team’s many years of laboratory-focused process improvement experience. When your analysis is complete, you will have a solid understanding of current practices and tailored recommendations for a more efficient future state.

(2) LIMS and ELN Requirements Definition

Once we confirm and prioritize laboratory and organizational business needs, CSols experts translate those needs into more formal requirements documents. Vendor selection requirements documentation incorporates findings from the needs assessment and will ensure that the potential solutions you are vetting can meet your critical requirements. Your team and your potential vendors can focus on high-value functionality to select the LIMS or ELN that is best for your lab.
