Dataworks Development Releases Freezerworks Unlimited 6.0

MOUNTLAKE TERRACE, WA--(Marketwired - Oct 23, 2013) - Dataworks Development, Inc. announces the release of a major new upgrade, version 6.0, to its Freezerworks Unlimited freezer inventory and sample management software program.

Now in its 26st year, Dataworks Development first launched Freezerworks as an MS-DOS product for Freezer Inventory management in 1992. Since then, the program has undergone significant adaptations to meet the changing world of computer operating systems, from Microsoft Windows to Macintosh to web services, all the while filling a vital role in the growth of biobanking in the 21st century.

"From its earliest days, Freezerworks was designed for user configuration," said Cheryl Michels, President and Lead Developer of Dataworks Development. "We believe that we've played an important role in setting a standard for laboratory software, particularly in the burgeoning world of biobanking."

"Laboratory professionals today are calling for greater configurability in their software systems, and we feel this is in large part because they have come to both expect and appreciate it in Freezerworks," she continued. "Configuration for Freezerworks is not an afterthought to meet a market need. Rather, it is designed that way from the very core. It's in our DNA, if you will," Michels explained.

Expanded configurability in version 6.0 is most notable with improvements and greater capabilities in screen design and layout, as well as in adapting the shipping processes to the workflow of the lab, biobank, and repository. The report writer has also been redesigned to offer a more user friendly interface for developing and printing reports, while adding flexibility for subtotaling and inventory counts. Users can also bar code any data field on a report for quick and accurate accessing of sample records and data.

Options for searching and updating data have been more fully integrated into personalized "dashboards." Users can quickly locate and work with the samples or aliquots within their purview. On the dashboard, handy features allow for quick access of records through both simple and more advanced search criteria. Working within their search results, users can immediately print reports and labels, check aliquots in and out, export data to spreadsheets, prepare batches for shipping, batch update records, and more.

As with all versions of Freezerworks since 1992, Freezerworks Unlimited version 6.0 was developed and validated in accordance with FDA guidance documents and regulations for GxP.
