The OPTIMAT System is installed on Windows Server 2008, 2012 or 2016 and is deployed as a remote application to desktop computers. Thin client access is provided through RDP/Terminal Services. The user is presented with a simple menu providing access to all of the OPTIMAT modules.
Background services are used to integrate with laboratory equipment and other systems (such as financial accounting systems and plant wide ERP systems).
All reporting is via ODBC database access. Database ‘views’ are provided, enabling custom report generation in either Excel or other report generation facilities. Standard reports in Excel are provided, the client can further customise the standard reports to meet specific user requirements.
Tools are provided for backing up the database.
Interfaces to other systems are developed as required. Examples include interfaces to Sun Accounts, Oracle Manufacturing Systems, bespoke SQL systems, SAP ERP and legacy mainframe systems. Integration may be via a simple exchange of text files or via direct database access to and from the OPTIMAT database.
Online conferencing is used for much of our implementation and training. This minimises travel time and cost and permits short, frequent meetings and focused training sessions arranged for client convenience.
