"The increased productivity, improvements in quality control and superior access to data will differentiate the lab in the marketplace and deliver bottom line results."
Bothell, WA (PRWEB) February 12, 2010
Promium, LLC announced today the broad availability of a subscription service offering for Element DataSystem(R), the company’s popular laboratory information management system (LIMS) application. Element had previously been available primarily as a licensed desktop software application.
The subscription version of Element from Promium(TM), provided through a SaaS (software as a service) implementation, offers all the same functionality and configurability of the desktop software. While the company still sees a strong preference for desktop software, more and more laboratories are seeking an option with a lower capital outlay and lower operating cost.
Using the Internet and incorporating Microsoft remote access technology, Promium gives lab operators and IT administrators a new alternative for deploying LIMS functionality throughout the lab that has a zero IT footprint.
"A subscription option for Element gives our customers one more choice with regard to how they build out their information infrastructure," said Scot Cocanour, Promium CEO. "They get the same LIMS functionality and the same support but without having to buy additional computer servers or add IT overhead to manage that infrastructure."
In addition to reducing capital outlay and IT operating expenses, the subscription service can also lower business risks. Element is hosted in a secure and redundant data center facility with protocols in place to protect against and mitigate hardware, software, infrastructure and communications failures and interruptions. Using technologies that many labs simply can’t afford, the data center has fully redundant hardware and software platforms and includes the capability for back-up at a second location.
Promium launched the subscription service in order to address a growing desire of labs to reallocate their resources in order to increase efficiency. "The key to improving productivity is ultimately implementing a great LIMS," said Cocanour. "Whether you buy, lease or subscribe the most important thing is to get that LIMS in place. The increased productivity, improvements in quality control and superior access to data will differentiate the lab in the marketplace and deliver bottom line results."
Subscriptions are available in monthly or annual contracts. For information on subscription pricing, contact Promium at 1.877.PROMIUM or visit http://www.promium.com.
