Webinar Description:

As lab operations costs rise, so do pressures to reduce the cost and time to complete projects. Labs must become more proactive in order to succeed and scale.

To improve performance across the lab – lab managers must move from a retrospective view of past processes to near real-time performance monitoring. Yet this is near impossible with the diverse and disjointed myriad of equipment and instruments in use in global labs today. From aging databases to multiple LIMS systems to emerging IoT-enabled instruments, labs must be able gain a comprehensive view and intervene sooner.

Join this session to understand how Cognizant Lab Insights allows labs to centralize lab operations, while maintaining your existing investments and allowing adoption of newer technologies.
