A LIMS (Laboratory Information Management System) is an essential tool of medical manufacturers, but companies suffer when their LIMS is isolated. As a ‘system of record,’ a LIMS becomes even more valuable when connected with your Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP). With both connected, your organization can operate out of one system to create a single source of truth for your employees. With Unity: Integration by Datix, you can gain the complete data traceability that a LIMS-ERP integration brings.
Single Source of Truth
Many medical device manufacturers use a Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) to oversee lot tracing and sample history. By integrating a LIMS with an ERP (and even other software like a CRM), your team can continue to use the platforms they are familiar with, while operating out of one, united system. This streamlined setup makes it far easier to onboard new employees because everyone knows where to find information. A LIMS-ERP integration creates data transparency while still protecting sensitive information through user permissions. Rather than having to constantly “touch base” to get information from other teams, your staff will simply be able to look at the data with Unity. A survey of Unity clients with SMBs indicated that Unity saved their organizations, on average, almost 50 phone calls, 500 emails, and approximately 50 hours of work every month! Gain a single source of truth with Unity.
With a Unity integration, LIMS and ERP data will be visible at the same time, enhancing the accessibility of information. Before issues snowball into major problems, your team has the traceability they need to react swiftly. In the event of an issue, you can quickly identify what lots are suspect, see their usage data, look at the bill of material for the lot, see all the points of consumption, and see what customers it impacted from one system within moments. This level of traceability prevents issues from falling through the cracks before the worst happens. However, if you do have a recall, an integration will make you react faster than is possible with a disconnected system. Not every integration can handle connecting LIMS and ERP while maintaining compliance. Unity: Integration by Datix is a pre-built application that is designed to be scalable so you always know that it can support your needs. Learn more about the advantages of an integration with Unity.
