Challenge: The convergence of steady customer growth and an increase in regulatory requirements were taking their toll on Alpha Analytical Laboratories. The Laboratory’s information infrastructure simply could not support the needs of the business. It was becoming increasingly difficult to effectively track samples through the lab from receipt to final report. And instrument data was manually entered—taking resources away from more valuable activities and increasing the chance of error.
