Many LIMS projects are not approved after a significant investment of effort because the benefits were not adequately developed so as to justify the expense to management. It is vital that the real benefits be quantified early in the project effort and stacked up against preliminary cost estimates to avoid wasted effort. This chart can be used to organize thinking for developing the benefit picture. It divides BlazeLIMS benefits into various categories. The benefits in any one category will vary substantially among laboratories as driven by many factors. For example, in some manufacturing QC laboratories, the indirect tangible benefit of catching process drift sooner will dwarf all other benefits. Using these ideas, a compelling business case can be made for BlazeLIMS in almost any laboratory. Blaze Systems can assist in this effort, bringing to bear the experience of other laboratories in achieving these benefits.
