Opportunity / Problem statement

Implementation of new ELN system can be long and costly. But most importantly it rarely fits into different types of laboratories within the company or research organization. The compromise often made is implementation of multiple LIMS and ELNs which have limited ability to communicate between each other and the maintenance is tedious and costly. So the real challenge is to make an ELN that is easy-to-use and flexible enough to be compatible with existing software and instruments.
