In yesterday’s post, I offered a free day of consulting to end customers who make a referral that turns into business. That post generated some questions and comments.
If your project is out of money and needs just a little extra consulting or if you’re tired of helping companies get projects with no thanks from them, this post is for you. With so many of you preparing to attend next week’s LabWare CEC, I wanted to make you an offer in case you get a referral opportunity.
I normally don’t give out product-specific tips. That’s what the LabWare Help Desk is for. However, there is one issue that I think many junior LabWare LIMS people don’t know about and there are even more senior LabWare LIMS specialists that don’t realize this. It’s something that pops-up so often and such a big issue that I want to draw attention to it.
Now that I was so inspired by my attendance at WordCamp 2014, am now ready to find another LIMS group to create or join. I have to stop myself, there!
I’d scheduled my newsletter to come out, yesterday, and I started to wonder if my timing was bad as a number of “out of office” responses came back leading me to think that quite a lot of people have left early for TIW (Thermo Informatics World) in Las Vegas.
Quick Answer: No.
Once in awhile, one software vendor or another will contact me about letting me try their software. I seldom take them up on it. Whether it’s released software or a beta (pre-release) version, I have found it less useful to try to look at these products.
Someone recently wrote to me for advice on how to get started with a LabWare system migration for two V5 systems that will be merged into a V6 system. I sent him my brain dump to help give him a start and I figured I would share it with all of you who might be doing the same, but a lot of these issues apply to just about any system, whether LabWare LIMS, SampleManager LIMS, an ELN or anything else.
As I occasionally do, I’m writing a post based on a search phrase someone used to get to my blog. Today’s phrase is: “tips & tricks for labware lims”
It is always difficult to comment on the economy within the laboratory informatics industry because there are so many segments. While one segment is busy, others might be seeing a downtown. With that said, keep in-mind that my comments might not apply to all segments.
