If your company wants the value from a BIOVIA laboratory transformational solution but lacks the budget and resources of a large enterprise company, this article is for you.

The BIOVIA Professional Services Quick Start package-off-the-shelf (POTS) can help you manage resource and budget constraints while getting the most out of BIOVIA’s core solutions.

What is a ‘Quick Start (POTS)’?

A ‘Quick Start (POTS)’ is an accelerated way to get value from BIOVIA solutions. BIOVIA Professional Services used its deep knowledge of the laboratory space and 100’s of previous successful deployments to identify and pre-package repeatable solutions to address many common laboratory workflows and processes.

Traditionally, laboratory transformation projects require a lengthy ‘Define and Design’ phase in which processes and workflows are mapped to the ‘to-be’ processes. Only once a D&D phase has been completed is it possible to fully understand the entire scope of work and resource requirements.

The ‘Quick Start (POTS)’ methodology eliminates the D&D phase by starting from a predefined, workflow and reducing it to a ‘Refine and Align’ phase where businesses processes are aligned with a menu of options included in a predefined scope. As a result, the project initiation phase is significantly accelerated and costs are controlled.

The BIOVIA Quick Start (POTS) offers a road-mapped and flexible approach to addressing one or more major business/laboratory workflow optimization opportunities.

Is a ‘Quick Start (POTS)’ the Right Choice for me?

BIOVIA Laboratory Informatics is a platform solution that brings together all aspects of your scientific business workflows. However, transforming your whole operation in one single step is risky and prone to issues and challenges. An organization only has so much capacity to absorb change without significant business disruption, particularly in small to midsize companies.

Perhaps you are looking to get up and running quickly with an Electronic Laboratory Notebook (ELN) and are looking for a standard best practice set of features that you’d expect from ELN to get started with. Or, maybe you have a pressing need to deploy a best in class Inventory solution quickly and are looking for guidance from BIOVIA Professional Services on how best to do this based on what others in the industry have done.

Based on years of experience and know-how in the scientific industry, BIOVIA Professional Services developed ‘Quick Starts (POTS)’ to get your business up and running fast. In order to develop and improve workflows and solutions, we continuously learn from every customer engagement. Our software offers many common applications that save you time and accelerate your transformation.

If you are looking for:

  • Electronic Laboratory Notebook (ELN)
  • Laboratory Information Management Solution (LIMS)
  • Lab Execution System (LES)
  • Inventory Solution
  • Quality Management System

You will find each package features a pre-defined scope and project plan designed to provide your users with major benefits from each solution, typically for a fixed-price Professional Services engagement cost.

Extending your ‘Quick Start (POTS)’ Solution

Now that you have deployed your BIOVIA ‘Quick Start (POTS)’ you have a complete understanding of system features and capabilities. Maybe your users are asking for additional incremental features that would optimize or enhance specific workflows? This is no problem at all! All Quick Starts are built using standard core BIOVIA configuration features and extension points. BIOVIA Professional Services will be happy to collaborate with you to understand your new business requirements and extend your solution deployment to ensure your users and sponsors receive the maximum possible benefit from your investment. The phased approach has been used successfully in many digital and business transformation programs and BIOVIA Professional Services will partner with you to define the right single or multi-phase program to best suit your business needs.

‘BIOVIA Quick Start (POTS)’ are design to be modular and stackable, meaning that you can implement different parts of the solution on a schedule that fits the ability of your organization to adopt change.
