An Enhanced Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) Brings Higher Quality and Lower Costs to Global Pharmaceutical Company



Problem

One of the most recognized global pharmaceutical companies was using an older SQL-based Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) that was no longer supported. The existing LIMS processes weren’t harmonized which resulted in a high total cost of ownership for the client. It also limited their ability to make staffing decisions related to lab quality control, and they were unable to compare performance across labs. Our well-established LIMS development capabilities made Rural Sourcing the right partner to improve the overall performance of this client’s system.


Solution

Our team implemented a leading LIMS solution that would interface with all of the client’s global supply sites. Having an updated LIMS allowed the client to increase data quality and integrity, have higher productivity with less testing time, and improve user satisfaction due to scientists having more time in the lab (and less time entering and reviewing data). It also gave them the ability to transfer products more rapidly between their large number of manufacturing sites.
