There are two primary considerations when determining IT required involvement for a software implementation: Maintenance and Hosting. Wavefront LIMS was originally designed and remains focused on being user-friendly. This means that every-day maintenance of the system (creating tests, adding new fields, setting up basic automation) can be completed by the user. In addition, the user does not have to have software engineering knowledge. Wavefront LIMS’s user-friendly interface provides the average laboratory user the ability to make these changes without Wavefront or coding help. Additionally, Wavefront LIMS is hosted on Wavefront’s Cloud. Therefore, there is no need for server configuration or system maintenance on the laboratory’s side. A laboratory can implement and maintain their Wavefront LIMS without IT support.
