Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS) are a critical component of any laboratory operations.
Tracking and managing a sample from start to finish includes collecting data, handling inventory, preparing billing, and much more. WinLIMS by Quality Systems International is one of the premier providers of Laboratory solutions whose features include:
- Sample management workflow
- Instrument automation
- Sampling rules
- Analytical methods implementation
- Batch and sample dispositions
- and much more
Integrating industry leading LIMS systems with Microsoft Dynamics Business Central adds significant value to any operations involving laboratory services.
The automation and synchronization of these two important solutions eliminates manual work and provides better and more comprehensive data.
LIMS integrated with Business Central
With Microsoft Business Central managing the finances and accounting of the organization, there is a clear need to synchronize with the orders that are being created and tracked in LIMS.
This integration has been created to do just that by offering a direct feed of the important data from WinLIMS into Business Central. The critical areas covered by the integration includes:
- Creation of Lab testing orders
- Updating of billing details from work performed
- Detailed invoicing
- Integrated with billing and receivables
- and more
These examples above cover the typical needs for an integration, but given the open platform of both WinLIMS and Business Central, any other workflow could be covered as well.
New LIMS orders to Business Central
When a new order is created in LIMS, getting the details of that order created in Business Central provides transparency for the entire business.
Whether lab work is the primary piece of operations or one of many, getting all orders into the central ERP is an important step.
The integration of WinLIMS to Business Central provides an immediate synchronization of new orders.
These orders are automatically tagged and tracked with the appropriate data to allow finance to see the source of the order and any other relevant details that are required.
