Working remotely and the LIMS solutions

Now that cell phone and internet coverage are virtually everywhere, it is extremely difficult to disconnect from work. Believe me, I know; I’ve been hiking up the side of a mountain in NC and still received phone calls and emails. Answering work related phone calls while out of breath and telling your five year old to be quiet at the same time can be quite a challenge. However, that kind of service, whether in sales or technical support, is expected these days. Professionally, you are expected to be connected.

Why did my LIMS implementation fail?

IT projects have a 70% failure rate and though LIMS projects fare a little better there are still several techniques and best practices that, when properly applied, will drive your LIMS implementation success.
