PRESS RELEASE

WinLIMS

The latest version of WinLIMS, from Quality Systems International (QSI), includes new tools that handle installation, configuration, and testing with no need for supplier visits.

The system will self-install both server and client software. If it finds that no SQL database engine exists, it automatically installs Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition; creates the necessary WinLIMS databases; and configures connectivity, so there is no need to purchase a separate database package. Tutorials covering all aspects of set-up and configuration use an internal test database to protect user data, and contain advice on how to optimise the system for individual user requirements.

Key aspects are condensed into easy-to-understand information sheets, so operators can quickly find the instructions they need without having to search through the very extensive user manuals. This software release also has a new look and feel, with the emphasis on simplicity, making screens and data requirements easier to understand.
