Autoscribe Informatics expansion 'a sign of prosperous times'
Autoscribe Informatics, developer, and supplier of the Matrix Gemini Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS), has moved to larger premises in the UK. As from 21 November 2016, the company’s headquarters are located in Aldermaston, near Reading in the UK.
John Boother, president of Autoscribe Informatics, said: ‘This expansion is the latest phase in a period of sustained investment into Autoscribe’s worldwide business. Over the last few years, this has included the purchase of our distributor in the USA to create a wholly-owned subsidiary there, the appointment of additional distributors throughout the world and the establishment of an office in the north of the UK to support our installations in that part of the country.”
Earlier this year, Autoscribe announced a record order intake for its Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS) in the USA. Results for the six months to April 2016 showed a total increase of orders of 161 per cent, with April itself showing the highest ever order book for a single month. At that time Boother commented that while this success was related to the success of Autoscribe’s Matrix Gemini software ‘it is still vitally important that our team works closely with customers to fully understand their current and future needs and ensure that systems we provide are exactly fit for purpose.’
This success is enabling Autoscribe to expand its current workforce with a view to encouraging sustained growth in the coming years. Speaking on the new UK headquarters, Boother said: ‘Accompanying this investment, we have seen continued and significant growth not only in the sales of our LIMS and Business Information Management Systems but also in our support business. We have therefore needed more people, and have now outgrown our old premises. Our new headquarters provide around 30 per cent greater floor area, which will allow us the space for further expansion in the future.’
