Sapphire LIMS cleans up company for global rollout

The LabVantage Sapphire Laboratory Information Management Suite (LIMS) has been rolled out by a provider of commercial cleaning and hygiene products

The company, which has licensed the Sapphire system, serves the food and beverage industry and other institutional and industrial end users such as building service contractors, retail outlets and healthcare facilities.

The company needed a configurable-off-the-shelf (COTS) solution that could replace its antiquated home grown LIMS application for two of its quality control laboratories. The solution also needed out-of-the-box functionality so its team of system administers could rapidly configure and deploy the app.

Using the Sapphire Evergreen Web Page Designer, the company and LabVantage configured, tested, and placed Sapphire into live production within an 18-day period.

‘The entire process was managed professionally and went without a hitch,’ said the company's quality assurance manager. ‘Our organisation will continue to build on the Sapphire LIMS platform and plans have already been initiated to move Sapphire LIMS globally.’

The planned global rollout will use Sapphire's multinationalisation features, including language translation, and its zero footprint, thin-client architecture for easy, secure access to all user functionality. The company also used the Sapphire out-of-the-box functionality to configure and automate a new a raw materials skip-lot testing process for its LIMS.

The company has also licensed and is deploying the Sapphire CAPA (Corrective and Preventive Action) Module. The CAPA Module is an extension of Sapphire and provides functionality for monitoring planned and unplanned incidents, performing root cause analysis, and implementing risk mitigation procedures.
