Bridgewater, NJ, October 14, 2010. LabVantage will host a live webinar on deploying laboratory information management systems (LIMS) as an integral component for manufacturing operations excellence.  Featuring speakers from Gartner and CF Industries, this webinar will be conducted on Wednesday, October 27, 2010 at 10:00AM EDT, and include an interactive question & answer session. To register for this 40-minute webinar, please go to

Donald Thomas, Director of Technical Service and Quality Programs for CF Industries, will discuss experiences of CF Industries’ recent multi-site LIMS deployment project and share his insights on the requirements for a successful LIMS implementation. Simon Jacobson, Research Director at Gartner, Inc., will share Gartner’s research analysis on the role of LIMS in the manufacturing supply chain, which allows organizations to connect critical operational data with business planning processes.

“A successful LIMS deployment is one that is able to deliver this critical enterprise software on-time and within budget, but that’s only the beginning,” states Peter Boogaard, Vice President of Global Marketing at LabVantage.  “Organizations that operate over multiple plant locations have the magnified pressure to reduce overall costs, launch products on-time, improve quality within the manufacturing supply chain, and quickly accelerate to peak sales. Once successfully implemented, the LIMS must produce a measurable return on investment by helping to achieve these critical business objectives.”

Key take-aways from the webinar include:

  • Considerations that ensure success for a LIMS deployment, on time and on budget;
  • Value of incorporating LIMS as an integral component of the manufacturing supply chain;
  • Considerations when integrating LIMS with SAP® ERP;
  • Benefits of deploying Corrective Action and Preventive Action (CAPA) system; and
  • Accommodations for greater levels of compliance enforcement and customer satisfaction.

LabVantage encourages laboratory directors and managers, operations and IT executives, plant management, quality control and quality assurance leaders, and manufacturing and IT leaders to participate in the complementary webinar at 10 a.m. EDT, Wednesday, October 27.
