Transform your informatics strategies for a more efficient, compliant and productive laboratory

“Very valuable, it was a great opportunity to gather information from vendors and the industry in a most effective way. I was able to collect new information and establish contacts” Sandoz, Head Lab IT, 2014 Delegate

With businesses under constant pressure to increase productivity, cut costs, streamline their organisation, and demonstrate regulatory compliance, lab environments are under more scrutiny than ever before. This along with the challenges of outsourcing, big data and an upsurge in M&A, standardisation and integration is all the more difficult.

It is therefore of key priority for lab informatics professionals to find the right tools in the market that will help them achieve this complex mix of business objectives in the most cost effective manner, to deliver their business maximum value. However finding the right tools that are both efficient and reliable is not an easy task.

As such, for organisations that recognise the need to increase productivity, cut costs, streamline their organisation, and demonstrate regulatory compliance, the SmartLab Exchange Europe provides a platform to benchmark with an exclusive group of senior peers and solution providers capable of helping them define and successfully navigate this new territory.

How is the SmartLab Exchange different to any other event?
