Why is lab management complicated? Manual work arising from the management of data is expensive. There is too much data, but information is lacking. There are several laboratory instruments, but each with a different set of data! Laboratory information is managed separately from the administrative one. There is an excess of paper in processes. Information is received and delivered to a large group of users.SolutionCentralize and integrate the documentation, whether it comes from laboratory processes or management.This requires an ERP software, which addresses the complete process-from laboratory or not-but also to integratethe power of a document management system. Athento LIMS is a solution developed in accordance with ISO / IEC 17025 that can efficiently manage all the information generated by the processes of a laboratory.But what is the added value of document management? You no longer have to have the information stored in different data platforms. You can have documents -real files- and work on them, not only with records in a database as in the typical LIMS You can organize your information with the structure of your choice, for example, records of customers, patients, etc...

There are applications that integrate LIMS with Document Management Systems but they... don’t address the management of administrative processes. Also, Software licensing is often prohibitively expensive and doesn’t allow, as Athento LIMS does, adding or waiving functionality to suit the particular needs of each laboratory.
