Styled after the familiar Microsoft Outlook graphical interface, the new LABWORKS ES software uses a standard tree structure as well as menus and tool bars for simple navigation and greater ease of use. Users will save time through fewer clicks to accomplish the same tasks as before. Through the improved, highly intuitive interface, new users will have a sharply reduced learning curve. LABWORKS has improved scheduling, organizing and reporting of critical laboratory data and a Process Scheduler module used to schedule routine sampling and to monitor sample statuses throughout an organization based on time, frequency, sample locations, and type of analysis. Also included is a query function that makes it easy for users to work with data in both LABWORKS and outside databases.
