ChemSW Releases Enhanced Version of IMCS Live™ Web-Delivered Instrument Maintenance & Calibration Software

FAIRFIELD, CA--(Marketwire - October 5, 2010) -  ChemSW, Inc. has released an enhanced version of their IMCS Live web-delivered Instrument Maintenance & Calibration System. IMCS Live addresses the three core components of instrument maintenance and calibration: managing routine maintenance schedules, problem resolution, and task allocation. The enhanced release provides a simplified user interface, role-based access, and new features that streamline maintenance and calibration tasks.

IMCS Live is a robust laboratory equipment calibration tracking and management software program that allows labs to automatically schedule periodic maintenance and inspection events, as well as track, monitor and report those events using an extensive array of customizable reports. It provides a central repository for calibration and maintenance records, delivering unmatched flexibility in maintaining, visualizing, and reporting instrument history, including instrument type, identification, location, user, and problem status and history.

New features include optimized searches; integration with Crystal Reports; a MTBF feature that allows performance monitoring for each piece of equipment; a View Editor Preview function that allows retired equipment to be filtered out of the equipment list without being permanently removed; and more. Now, laboratories can be ensured that equipment calibration and maintenance is managed automatically for all equipment -- from chromatographs to fire extinguishers -- in the lab.

"Organizations still relying on spreadsheet software to track laboratory equipment maintenance and calibration records aren't taking advantage of the robust functionality that a specialized program like IMCS Live can deliver," explains Brian Stafford, President of ChemSW.

"For instance, using spreadsheet software to manage maintenance and calibration records is awkward at best, because such generic solutions do not have the application-specific functionality that a program designed for the actual task provides. By combining all instrument and equipment maintenance and calibration records into a single accurate repository, the entire system -- from records to equipment -- can be validated uniformly and consistently with the least amount of effort."

IMCS Live is a key component of ChemSW's family of web-delivered vertical offerings, and provides users with an enterprise-level solution at an affordable low cost of entry.
