"After converting from a different system, I was impressed by the configurability of the Confience LIMS software and the support we were able to receive from the Confience staff."

Jim Gerry
Castrol Lubricants

"With Confience LIMS, we document our laboratory tests reliably and in compliance with GxP: On the one hand, Confience also pays attention to maintaining the validated state, on the other hand, Confience LIMS is characterized by stable operation. Confience was able to set up the interface to our SAP S/4 HANA flexibly and provide it quickly. The cooperation with Confience was always cooperative and on an equal footing. Our contact persons had an open ear for questions and concerns, even at short notice."

Dr Karsten Brandenbusch
Head of Quality Control at Hevert-Arzneimittel

"We have been working successfully with Confience LIMS in the fields of radiochemistry and environmental analysis for over 20 years. The Confience LIMS systems were individually configured for our processes, adapted to changed structures (merger of laboratories from different offices) and are subject to regular revision to new requirements (e.g. mobile working)."
