Starlims has announced that a US-headquartered consumer goods company is exercising its option to expand its Starlims licensing agreement and move towards enterprise-wide deployment.
The move will make Starlims's laboratory information management system (Lims) and scientific data management system (SDMS) available to the customer's laboratories as well as external users.
By implementing Starlims's web-based Lims, the customer is creating an enterprise informatics system accessible throughout the manufacturing supply chain.
Spanning research and development, manufacturing, quality control and quality assurance, the expanded system will make data available not only to the customer's employees at multiple sites, but also to vendors, suppliers and trade partners on several continents.
The customer has such a large volume of materials testing, and an extensive supply chain network, that process harmonisation was essential to the selection team.
A claimed benefit of Starlims in this context is the fact that the system is built from the ground up as an entirely web-based application, and provides instant global access to the corporate informatics system, via a responsive user interface known as rich internet application.
Anyone with the appropriate access privilege, be it an employee, or trade partner, can see the same data and information in real time.
Starlims's utilisation of available bandwidth ensures good performance even on latent connections.
