Time is frequently of the essence in many forms of lab work, but it’s especially critical to the investigative process.
LabVantage Forensic Navigator helps investigators piece together and solve crimes faster by accelerating the investigative process.
By streamlining and linking every aspect of a criminal case together into a single, intuitive software platform, eliminating the need to purchase or interact with other automation tools.
This game-changing suite of forensic data management tools is built to serve the unique needs of lab operations managed by police departments, forensic laboratories, medical examiner’s offices, court officials, and investigative agencies.
Take control of the entire investigation lifecycle
LabVantage Forensic Navigator encompasses the entire investigation lifecycle – from crime scene, across various labs, and to court, in a comprehensive ‘360 degree’ approach. Unlike traditional LIMS systems which focus on specific samples, Forensic Navigator uses a case-centric approach that was developed to specifically for the forensic workflow. Packages of evidence are referred to as “exhibits” in the LIMS, which enables and tracks chain-of-custody authentication.
In addition to providing all the traditional LIMS functions needed by a forensic lab, the platform provides suggestions about the optimal way to proceed with many aspects of your operation and data management. Forensic Navigator also includes capabilities to streamline third-party scrutiny of results and courtroom presentations.
Spend your time catching criminals, not installing software patches
Users of LabVantage Forensic Navigator will have the option to implement the platform using our proven software as a service (SaaS) model. In addition to providing a significant cost savings, this approach dramatically reduces the need for IT management and infrastructure.
Depending on your operation, much of your current IT budget could potentially be reallocated to R&D or other investments. You’ll also be relieved of the need to perform maintenance, manage security, or shut your lab down for upgrades, thus minimizing downtime. Best of all, you’ll always have the latest version of the software with the most up-to-date capabilities.
Another benefit of the SaaS model is flexibility. By eliminating one of the major obstacles to growth, this approach enables your operation to add new users or take on more work whenever you like. You can also scale the capacity of the system up or down on an as-needed basis, without the need to invest in (or write off) additional infrastructure.
Advance your agency’s technology on the devices you prefer
LabVantage Forensic Navigator affords technological advancement to your agency by providing a browser-agnostic platform backed by cybersecurity protection, a proven and documented quality software development methodology, and forensics intelligence and predictive analyses through optional artificial intelligence capabilities. This secure, web-based platform enables your users to access the data they need from any device with a web browser. You and your team can use the devices you’re already comfortable with and will often be able to obtain access with fewer delays.
Configure the system you need without the risks of customization
Customizing a LIMS is a bad idea — especially for forensic operations — because it makes updates very difficult and can impact stability, often with damaging consequences in the form of unplanned downtime, as well as compliance. Instead, LabVantage Forensic Navigator will provide a wide range of built-in configuration options that enable you to set up the platform to meet your unique needs while ensuring smooth, inmpact-free upgrades on an ongoing basis.
Boost your quality compliance
LabVantage Forensic Navigator has been designed with multiple functionalities to help you meet ISO-17025 and CALEA compliance requirements. These will include document control, tracking of service and supply purchases, process improvement tools, personnel data, equipment verification, plus a flexible reporting structure that automates as much of the process as possible.
