In addition to providing lab members with item location and usage data, LabArchives Inventory provides order workflow which tracks requests, approvals, orders and receipts. This real-time order status enables better experiment planning.
LabArchives Inventory also provides administrative oversight. Customizable administrative controls include stock thresholds, expiration date notifications and rules for order requests.
Together, LabArchives Inventory and LabArchives ELN offer a comprehensive and effective data management solution. Every item in LabArchives Inventory has a usage history attached to it which includes information on materials used as well as personnel, location and time/date of use.
