Operations

Running an animal facility brings daily challenges. You have an obligation to serve your research community customers efficiently and effectively, but also to ensure the welfare of the animals, while motivating and retaining your staff, managing your operating budget and ensuring effective use of space.

Technology can help you meet these challenges by ensuring census accuracy, smoothing the daily workflow of your technicians, and by providing researchers and managers direct access to relevant detail and summary data. A carefully chosen system can promote efficient use of PI’s or departmental funds, allowing grants and budgets to stretch further. It can also help with compliance and accreditation reporting, allowing you to focus more of your time on your staff, your customers and the animals.
