Hi all,

Have any of you used NetSuite for laboratory testing and records? Pros and Cons?


I sure know there are better systems out there, however we are a really tiny corporate laboratory and our company is already using NetSuite for a number of different items outside of QA. We are getting quotes from other LIMS/systems for anywhere from $35,000 - $250,000 with additional monthly service packages, all depending on the complexity. We really need something simple - excel type storage that is more secure and time stamped, with some really basic dashboards, capability reports, and general reporting as well as spec management. We are a super small corporate laboratory monitoring product from our co-packers as a secondary verification, and it'll be hard for me to justify an expense for a data management system that would cost more than our whole lab build out. Our current paper and excel methods have me pretty worried from a risk / loss standpoint.


I've found a little bit of info on their website, but I'd love to hear input from anyone with NetSuite experience in this manner, particularly some screen shots if you wouldn't mind sharing, before I call our rep (because it's an additional charge just to talk with them about implementation!$!)



Thank you

Before dropping the dollars on a system, if you don't have a huge sample volume and/or an ISO data management standard, you could instead purchase a couple MS access licenses and take a class on how to build databases in MS access? The learning curve/data management of a boxed system is going to be pretty much the same time committment in exchange for a fancier UI.
