If UCSD already had an multimillion dollar inventory system (LIMS) in place — why did they hire us to develop another?
The only problem with the expensive LIMS is that it’s a one-size-fits-most system. It is cumbersome to use on a high frequency, day-to-day basis. These weaknesses led the analysts to not use the software at all.
So, saving time and effort, the analysts naturally began to track their inventory in Excel worksheets. This was a great solution until their inventory grew too large…
They called a dozen providers and reviewed featuresets, configuration timelines and cost. The search was beneficial. They learned what features their lab needed and much time and money it takes to configure off-the-shelf systems.
Then they called Mongoose Coding! We discussed their needs and how they wanted the system to work.
They confidently chose us to develop a completely custom LIMS for their lab because we truly provided the best of everything: user experience, cost (almost half the investment of the next cheapest), and great support.
Today in early 2016, they have been using our LIMS for 4 years and are managing millions of samples. We’ve added two modules to the system since initial implementation.
