LIMS Project Challenges


What makes running a LIMS selection & implementation project so difficult for most laboratories and how can LIMS Academy make it easier, more efficient and  successful!

LIMS selection and implementation challenges

How does LIMS Academy address these project challenges?

 

In the LIMS Academy introduction video on our website we made a thorough comparison of a few ways you may address the common LIMS project challenges, starting from the selection phase. One conclusion was that it makes a lot of sense to involve vendor-independent resources to close the knowledge and experience gap(s) between customers and vendors. Another conclusion was that vendor-independent resources are not always easy to find and you need to make sure they are really independent. LIMS Academy is going to provide easy access to these vendor-independent resources, building on the knowledge and experience of LUFC LabConsultants and its founder Louis Uunk, who is known for providing vendor-independent services to 60+ projects for the last 15 years in LUFC LabConsultants.

LIMS Academy translated the need for vendor-independent support into a new online platform providing both community and coaching for LIMS selection and implementation projects. In the sections below, this will be explained further.

LIMS Academy Community


A LIMS selection & implementation community with active members
willing to learn and share for mutual growth!

LIMS Selection & Implementation Community

 

LIMS Academy build an independent closed and safe LIMS community platform. The community is intended for active members, involved in a LIMS selection or implementation project. The community is build on a configurable market leading professional training, coaching and community platform. This platform is adhering to all common privacy and data safety regulations, so you can use it safely.
The community is not intended for any software vendors or  (affiliated) service providers wanting to gather leads. 
LIMS Academy setup "separated" selection and implementation communities due to the different needs these member groups have.

The LIMS selection community is setup to provide general vendor-independent project interaction and support from LIMS Academy expert consultants and not in the least through interaction between members facing the same challenges. The selection community is setup to provide a space for learning, sharing and communication. The goal is to work and learn together to make running these complex projects easier for all members and save a lot of time & money using each others knowledge and experiences and the expert guidance of LIMS Academy consultants.

The LIMS implementation community is setup somewhat different from the selection community. During the implementation you are more or less already bound to a certain LIMS vendor and its software solution. Challenges implementation members are facing will mostly be related their specific LIMS (functionality) and/or their vendors implementation project approach/services. For that reason we structured the implementation community around separate groups per specific LIMS software brand. Members will be placed in their own groups to be able to better focus on topics/issues that may concern them directly. For general topics LIMS Academy also created a "general" space for interaction between separate groups.

The goal is to work & learn together, so implementation solutions can be shared and we all save a lot of time&money by making use of each others knowledge and experience. This will result in much more projects going smoother and reach the desired result more efficiently in less time and money.

"Louis's guidance during the entire process has been excellent. His extended market knowledge proved to be very valuable. With Louis's help WLN succeeded in making an informed decision for its new LIMS solution".


Ronald Italiaander


"Louis has provided tremendous value during the selection of our LIMS/ELN. His experience and knowledge in the laboratory information management area have been very valuable during our process towards identifying our LIMS/ELN requirements . Louis also guided and supported us during the vendor selection process".

Remco Bitter


"Louis helped us in a very professional manner through all the important stages. He helped us define our needs and wishes, together we created a short list of suppliers based on our input, gathered all the relevant information from the suppliers. Due to his extensive knowledge, we could make a profound decision about this vital peace of software. We are still getting compliments from within the organisation on how good this selection has been done!'


Jan Peter Heutink


"Louis used a thorough project approach to identify BaseClear's process improvement potential. With LUFC's knowledge and experience, "To- be" processes were drafted which in turn were translated into a detailed URS.   We were able to select a new LIMS that meets our requirements, thanks to LUFC's  well defined and thorough selection approach. 
"
Louis's support, advice and project methology have been very valuable during all steps of our LIMS selection. Communication and cooperation with Louis were very pleasant and constructive. I highly recommend Louis's support and advice during a LIMS selection".
