Easy operation
Anyone, like us, who is familiar with professional lab routines, knows that even the most efficient system will find no acceptance if it ignores the habits and demands of its users. Therefore readyLIMS® is equipped with a web-enabled client with an individual graphical user interface (GUI). This solution combines the best of both worlds, the easy operation of a classical Windows application and the simplified access to the own database or connected devices.

Further advantages of an independent client:
- no commitment to a certain browser
- no additional plug-ins necessary
- no hidden downloads
- minimal periods of initial adjustment and training thanks to MS Office-oriented
   routines

Multilingualism and standards

There are no language barriers for scientific work – therefore readyLIMS® was designed to be used in an international environment. Several users can work in the same system using different languages. Navigation tree, menus, tabs and other controls are then displayed in the desired language. In the development of readyLIMS® the requirements in terms of I18N (Internationalization) and L10N (Localization) have also been taken into account so that preconditions to localize the system in accordance with our customers’ requirements are fulfilled.

Architecture
readyLIMS® follows the multi-tier-architecture principle. The logical separation of individual tiers significantly reduces maintenance costs and ensures a high-level horizontal and vertical
scalability of the system. readyLIMS® consists of the following three tiers:

Presentation tier (client tier):
- for the presentation of data, user inputs and user interfaces
- located on the user’s workstation

Logic tier (server tier):
- bundles the application logic
- contains all essential processing mechanisms

Data storage tier (data server tier):
- for saving and retrieving data

Extensions and further developments of functionalities are realized with the help of an external
report tool, web services and upgrades.
