Flexible Web-Based LIMS Reporting Capabilities Prove ‘Priceless’ for Meeting Business Needs
Product News Jul 15, 2011
Two Fold Software Limited’s innovative Qualoupe LIMS solution now features a new secure web reporting capability that offers laboratory users and their customers even greater flexibility to drive their business forward by generating ‘priceless’ on-demand reports derived from laboratory data.
The ability of a laboratory to provide affordable on-demand reports offers efficiency gains by helping to save time and removing the need to push reports to end customers.
On-demand reports also enable a laboratory to improve its customer service and enhance its reputation for slick data provision.
Internal reports can be run from within each Qualoupe application. Advanced software enables reports to be associated with each application. For example, within the Sample Manager module the reports would all be predominately sample centric.
When running the reports the user can simply select the current record set, or single record, or run a new query. Alternatively, if the report has an embedded query the report can simply be run with the minimum of fuss.
Qualoupe’s intuitive, configurable user interface coupled with its enhanced report generating flexibility greatly simplifies the input of required data to generate a report.
The on-demand web based reporting solution enables a customer to run a report by accessing the Qualoupe reporting application through a browser. A secure access interface enables customers to restrict the downloading of reports to authorized people.
“At Two Fold Software we believe a LIMS without web based reporting and a library of reports designed to meet the business needs is worthless. We recognize that once a LIMS has gone live it is the reports derived from the laboratory data that help to drive the business forward and that information is priceless,” commented Paul Bateman, Two Fold Software’s Business Development Manager.
Bateman continued, “Unlike other LIMS vendors we do not use third party reporting tools such as Cognos and Business Objects as these products significantly increase the cost of a LIMS, we have developed our own web reporting module which is affordable for even the smallest of companies.”
“Qualoupe’s library of reports is based on our customers’ real needs. We are only interested in designing reports that will provide benefits to our customers, so we are spending significant time evaluating the reporting needs of our customers and the various industrial sectors”.
Another benefit of Qualoupe’s new web reporting module is that it allows external organizations to easily access reports for auditing or compliance requirements.
