Beside the standard laboratory use of the lims, in pair of occasions system solve some strong needs, some companies where worked, was not available any system for monitoring the employees presence and for schedule presences (holydays, courses...) with opportune modifications and arrangement with LW lims we were able to arrange an internal administrative system for personnel and timesheet generations.
Great benefit was an easy way to collect and organize data of laboratories, either coming form lab instruments either from on line analyzer. Another big advantage is the easy way to share and receive data with many external systems. Optimization of chemicals and spares parts is another important function that allowed me to safe money and avoid to duplicate purchases. Implementing the ISO 17025 controlling package, allowed me to obtain the laboratory accreditation in most easy way and provide a set of control for better validate the results published. In some companies where i worked it was difficult to have available an official way for monitoring and manage various report and study realized from laboratory, in this case LW LIMS come in our help providing the Document Management System, an internal functionality that allow to control and verify the life cycle of any document initiate inside this patch, from the first issuing, revision and final authorizations, all stages are monitored and consultable. Usage of this DMS and patch for document automatic compilation make faster all reports generations inside the laboratory, maintain in any case a strong control on document quality.
Las but not least using the auditing internal system, we can have the complete control of all LIMS environment, verify and assuring that all action done on sample or any other lims aspect are monitored and controlled, leaving the system in a really safety and sure situation.
