The reliance on IT has never been greater. As technology becomes deeply integrated into every layer of life science, organizations of all shapes and sizes are finding it increasingly difficult to manage their complex and ever-changing IT systems. Your organization needs a diverse collection of IT expertise and scientific instrument specialists. However, the reality for most biotechs is that you don’t need these specialists full-time. For many organizations, teaming up with a Managed Services Partner (MSP) that address the complete instrument solution is the service that provides them with the strategic and technical expertise they need – when they need it.

Filling the Skill Gap

As the role of IT in the laboratory becomes more and more granular, the value proposition of investing in hiring a staff member for each area of expertise is not economically feasible. Managed Services is designed for this reason, providing these experts in a shared services model to fill the gaps in IT skills and coverage to keep up with the increasing demands on IT. Additionally, they care for the complete solution including the PC, application, and instrument.

Making the Most of Your Laboratory Investment

Benefiting from Strategic Advisors

In today’s digital-first world, aligning laboratory IT with your business goals is vital to success. Leading organizations often turn to for third-party advisors to bring diverse experience and expertise and act as their virtual CIO, providing proactive IT strategy and roadmap development plans to ensure the organization’s future growth is supported. An MSP can be a trusted partner for the full lifecycle of your laboratory.
