WinLIMS® Software as a Service (SaaS) is a quick and inexpensive way to obtain and manage your WinLIMS® system. Using this option, the software is installed on a cloud server that is maintained by a full service, secured 3rd party hosting service with high-speed internet connectivity. The WinLIMS® software itself is ‘rented’ on a monthly basis from QSI and also managed and continuously updated by QSI.
Low-Cost, Low Maintenance, and Always Up-To-Date
SaaS provides an intriguing alternative to traditional purchase and on-premises installation and management. Instead, the applications reside on a remote cloud network accessed through the web and fully managed and maintained by QSI. Your organization simply uses the software and pays for usage on an affordable, monthly basis.
Why Software as a Service?
Your organization can quickly enjoy the advantages of WinLIMS® lab automation and data management in your business environment at a low monthly cost. Here are some key reasons to use our WinLIMS® SaaS:
Reduced Time to Benefit
Using the WinLIMS® SaaS (Software as a Service) model reduces the time spent on installation and configuration and can reduce internal IT issues that often interfere with software deployment.
WinLIMS® SaaS provides beneficial cost savings through its low monthly pricing and frees up your budget for other needs. Additionally, SaaS software is treated as an expense which has great tax advantages.
Scalability and Integration
WinLIMS® SaaS resides in a fully scalable cloud environment. This means that the system can start small (in size and cost) and grow by increasing the server’s memory, disk space and CPU as you grow without any interruption to laboratory operation.
New Releases (upgrades)
When using WinLIMS® SaaS, updates to the operating system, security patches and WinLIMS® software are provided whenever they become available. This reduces the internal IT cost and eliminates the need to purchase a WinLIMS® support contract.
Easy to Use and Perform Proof-of-Concepts
If you’re not sure if you wish to commit to the purchase and implementation of a LIMS, WinLIMS® SaaS provides the ability to evaluate the system and QSI as a supplier on an extended basis at a minimal cost prior to making a full purchase commitment.
By far the best team we’ve ever worked with. They truly understood what our needs were and completely nailed it. I would highly recommend QSI. You simply just won’t find any better team!
We have been working successfully with QSI's WinLIMS® in the fields of radiochemistry and environmental analysis for over 20 years. The WinLIMS® systems were individually configured for our processes, adapted to changed structures (merger of laboratories from different offices) and are subject to regular revision to new requirements (e.g. mobile working).

After converting from a different system, I was impressed by the configurability of the WinLIMS software and the support we were able to receive from the QSI staff.

Special Pathogens Laboratory has been using WinLIMS by Quality Systems International for over 8 years. The flexibility of the system, and the support provided, allows us to keep up with ever changing client and operational demands. It is a dependable system that is easy to use and understand. Providing a solid foundation for a growing Laboratory.
Brian Verdi, Special Pathogens Laboratory, a Pace® Laboratory
WinLIMS® is great for managing many laboratory tasks. I manage multiple companies around the globe within my organization and the WinLIMS® multi-site feature works great. From receiving samples to managing test methods, entering test results, generating COA’s, it all works as expected. The interface is very easy to learn for the routine user, the power user and the administrators. I use the roles function throughout my entire organization and it’s a great way to restrict users to certain features depending on their role within the organization. The instrument interface is a plus: it transfers test result data from our test equipment into WinLIMS®. The database is very well designed and interfaces to our ERP system. Last, but not least, QSI has great and knowledgeable staff who are always willing to help.
Arturo Espejo, Quality Systems Analyst, MacDermid Alpha
WinLIMS® allows us maximum efficiency in daily laboratory work. The integration of different analysis devices and the direct import of analysis values by means of assignment to LIMS sample numbers make the paperless laboratory a reality. A great added value is the possibility of automated initialization of device calibrations and their evaluation.
Above all, it is the great flexibility in the design of the input masks, interfaces and specification documents such as certificates of analysis that characterize the product.
Not to forget the exemplary support and the short reaction times, which in the past enabled us to react quickly to changing market requirements.

SCHAEFER KALK has been using WinLIMS® for quality control for over 6 years, now internationally at several locations. Already in the introductory phase, we were impressed by how quickly and professionally the QSI team understood and implemented our requirements. Throughout the entire period of our cooperation, the support from the QSI experts is fast, direct, personal and solution-oriented. WinLIMS® can be configured in many ways, is easy to operate for the user and is interfaced with a large number of laboratory devices and other applications in our IT landscape via interfaces. With WinLIMS®, we see ourselves perfectly up to the constantly changing laboratory tasks!
Udo Oestreich, Head of Quality Control, SCHAEFER KALK GmbH & Co.KG
With WinLIMS®, we document our laboratory tests reliably and in compliance with GxP: On the one hand, QSI also pays attention to maintaining the validated state, on the other hand, WinLIMS® is characterized by stable operation. QSI was able to set up the interface to our SAP S/4 HANA flexibly and provide it quickly. The cooperation with QSI was always cooperative and on an equal footing. Our contact persons had an open ear for questions and concerns, even at short notice.
