LIMS Customer Satisfaction Survey

LIMSfinder is working to develop a comprehensive LIMS Buyer's Guide that will be kept up to date in as close to real time as possible.  The LIMS Customer Satisfaction Survey is the first in a series to help LIMS consumers find companies and products that fit their needs and to help LIMS companies know better how to serve that customer base.  We do not charge for this service and the results of these surveys are free and open to all who participate in the surveys.

If you already have a LIMS and are very satisfied, Tell us.

If you are not satisfied, Tell us.

The LIMS Customer Satisfaction survey is a mechanism to make your voice heard and to make an impact for the better.  You have nothing to lose and knowledge to gain.  Survey participants will receive the detailed survey report free of charge.
