Reporting requirements are becoming more and more stringent and complex, particularly as water quality laboratories move from paper-based and Excel macro- based systems toward enterprise-wide reporting and business intelligence systems. Water quality laboratories require more comprehensive, aggregated reports, and regulators are requiring more supporting data for validation and certification. HORIZON automates the production, validation and transmission of environmental and water quality reports. Unlike other LIMS vendors who might propose standalone or “snap on” report writers, or loosely integrated, third-party data warehousing and reporting solutions, HORIZON provides a single unified data source and reporting solution. This approach eliminates the need to learn a disparate technology, or to deploy and support yet another interface or database.
