Chilton, Bucks, United Kingdom, 2008/05/20 - Quality Systems International, (QSI), is launching WinLims For Manufacturing, a software solution designed for the SME (Small Medium Enterprise) manufacturers.
Quality Systems International, QSI, is launching WinLims For Manufacturing, a software solution designed for the SME (Small Medium Enterprise) manufacturers who require an integrated tool that combines the benefits of both LIMS (Laboratory Information Management System) and MRP (Materials Requirement Planning) functionality within one software application.
QSI‘s affordable WinLims For Manufacturing package offers SMEs a number of cost saving benefits. The new package removes the need to purchase two separate software packages by providing seamless integration between LIMS and MRP components in a single solution.
Further cost savings are achieved because the package helps manufacturers improve production efficiencies and reduces material wastage.
The single package solution also significantly reduces data entry demands and offers increased customer satisfaction through improved control of quality data and materials planning.
QSI‘s WinLims For Manufacturing offers SME manufacturers complete LIMS functionality plus full formulation control and management capabilities.
The software has been developed to handle the following tasks: raw materials and finished product stock control; purchase order processing; sales order processing; order dispatch; works order batch processing and planning; raw material receipt processing; batch traceability and picking list management.
WinLims can be purchased outright from QSI but many SMEs are now taking advantage of QSI’s Rental Scheme, which provides WinLIMS for as little as £165 per month, with no long term commitment.
For a number of years QSI’s WinLims solutions have been efficiently supporting manufacturing companies worldwide across a wide range of industry sectors including food and drink, minerals and chemicals, petrochemicals, healthcare, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, power generation and automotive.
“For several years we have been supplying WinLims to the larger corporate companies such as Boots Contract Manufacturing, Estee Lauder, Exxon Mobil, Nabisco, Air Products, Rhodia, Pepsi, Kerry Foods, Givaudan, Cabot and WBB Minerals. With these large organizations we were integrating WinLims with their MRP (Material Requirement Planning) or ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) software applications, to provide greater efficiencies by sharing of common data, faster release of raw material batches into production, quick release of finished product batches, batch traceability and so on,” explained QSI’s UK managing director Clive Collier. “From this global experience we realised that medium and smaller manufacturing companies also had the same requirements as the corporate manufacturers but, because they operated on tighter budgets, could often only afford either a LIMS or MRP but not both and, in some cases, neither. To address this situation QSI has now specifically developed a version of WinLims for manufacturing companies which provides both full LIMS capabilities and MRP functionality fully integrated to provide a quality solution for both the laboratory and production”.
