LabVantage Solutions Announces SaaS Option for Its LIMS Platform
Product News Feb 28, 2020
LabVantage Solutions, Inc., provider of laboratory informatics solutions and services including purpose-built LIMS solutions, has announced that its platform is now available as a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) package. With LabVantage SaaS, customers pay a simple subscription fee to access the entire LabVantage platform – laboratory information management system (LIMS), electronic laboratory notebook (ELN), laboratory execution system (LES), and scientific data management system (SDMS).
The advantages of SaaS solutions have made them increasingly popular across industries. LabVantage SaaS is designed to eliminate the substantial upfront costs associated with perpetual licensing, server installations, and the additional qualification work of a conventional LIMS. The pay-as-you-go subscription provides users everything needed to access and operate the LabVantage LIMS through their own web browsers. It includes all software licenses, servers, networking, load balancing, backups, and failover. Using a Virtual Private Network (VPN) ensures that all data traffic and servers on the client’s network are secure and enables easy access to the client’s instruments, printers and external systems.
With SaaS, software updates are automatically implemented by LabVantage, freeing up internal resources, eliminating downtime during installation and upgrades, and increasing productivity. The system aims to be highly scalable, allowing customers to pay only for what they need and use. It is a flexible option that makes it easy for customers to add features as they grow.
“Offering a SaaS option is consistent with our commitment to digital transformation and to making our LIMS platform available to all who can benefit from our industry-leading solutions,” says John Heiser, CEO at LabVantage Solutions. “As a comprehensive package that minimizes the need for upfront investments, infrastructure, equipment, and ongoing maintenance, our SaaS option makes it possible for organizations of all sizes to implement a LabVantage system.”
