For both lab members and managers, iLab simplifies the procurement process and allows for greater transparency and efficiency.
- iLab provides managers with a single system to review and approve orders, analyze spending, and track budgets. Managers receive requests electronically, reducing the need for duplicate re-entry. They are also automatically notified of potential duplicate orders, saving money by eliminating unnecessary purchases.
- The iLab system links scientific metadata to products while also providing a user-friendly shopping cart experience, eliminating spending on the wrong products and improving the efficiency in selecting the right ones.
- Manage spending with real-time visibility. Using the iLab system, managers can analyze real-time spending, compare weekly and monthly budgets, and produce spending reports by grant, group or person. iLab helps managers to identify spending patterns down to end researchers before they become a problem.
