Custom Reports In Qualoupe (Video)

Written by

Qualoupe uses Crystal Reports® as the principal way to design and print reports. Installed systems are supplied with a selection of default Crystal Reports templates. This video shows how new reports are added to the system and how to launch reports from within Qualoupe.

Qualoupe LIMS users equipped with the secure web reporting module will be able to log into the application to access their LIMS data reports. The web reports are designed using Crystal Reports, which is the defacto standard for reports design, and is an affordable tool. Laboratories create large amounts of data related to the samples they are testing. Both internal departments and external organisations often need access to the data on a regular basis and web reporting is an ideal solution. Web reporting capabilities are especially attractive to contract laboratories that are testing samples from their clients. The clients of contract laboratories require all kinds of reports to help them analyse the data.

Qualoupe's Flexible Payment Options

Written by

We believe that we should be flexible in our approach to all aspects of our relationship with our customers; one of the key areas is how to pay for the preferred solution.

We provide payment options to suit all sizes of companies that offer our clients the choice to select which option suits their situation.

Whichever payment option you select you will get our full technology solution, which is in line with our company philosophy that we want all companies to have access to our technical solutions irrespective of their size and their wealth.


Outright Purchase

This is the traditional option, where a company can purchase our solution for a fixed price and in return we grant a perpetual licence to use our software. The only ongoing cost is for annual support which is 15% of the licence cost.


Leased Purchase

This in principle is similar to outright purchase but instead of one payment an agreement is taken out with a leasing company where monthly payments are made over a three year term and at the end of the term a perpetual licence is granted to allow the company to continue using the software.  The annual support for the term is usually built into the lease cost and as such at the end of the term the ongoing cost will be for annual support.


Rental Solution

This solution is ideal for smaller companies or those that wish to eliminate the risk and commitment associated with the previous options.

Qualoupe's User Interface

Written by

The users interact with a LIMS system via the user interface, it is their attitude to the design of the interface, essentially it’s  ‘ease of use’; plus the clarity and relevance of the information provided that determines their acceptance of the solution.

In designing Qualoupe the focus has been on providing an effective powerful tool for the laboratory and distancing the user from having to understand or see the underlying data structures, whilst delivering the information the user needs.

Getting users to embrace a business solution is one of the main factors that determines the success of the project. Qualoupe is designed to give the user a simple intuitive tool to drive adoption of the solution and deliver the benefits of a next generation Laboratory Information Management System.

What does the Qualoupe LIMS user interface deliver?

  • Web Based
  • Fully graphical interface.
  • User customisable.
  • A rich user information context.
  • Minimal mouse clicks.
  • On screen native querying.
  • Custom fields.
  • Un-cluttered screens using a Just Enough Information Model (JEIM)
  • Multilingual, throughout the application.
  • Third party application access from the user interface.
  • Micro formats, associated with fields can link to other systems or services.
  • The Self Learning Interface (SLI) monitors which data is commonly used by each user, to facilitate faster selection of records.

Qualoupe's Comprehensive Reporting

Written by

Comprehensive LIMS Reports

Reports are the valuable end result of all work carried out in a laboratory, with data used both internally and externally to monitor quality, workflow, KPIs, etc. …. Truly flexible reporting provided within the LIMS by Qualoupe from Two Fold Software Ltd enables data analysis which can highlight issues, maximise resources, inform management and drive growth.

User Customisable LIMS Query

An easy, intuitive print interface allows reports to be run within each application and the selection of data to populate each report is controlled by simple options; current record, selected records, and by query.

Certify LIMS Reports

A Certify option adds a unique report and version number to the printed report, and then saves a PDF of the report against the sample or batch: if the same report is run again the version number is incremented and a PDF created and saved, giving an audit trail of the run reports, which is extremely useful for such customer reports as COA’s (certificates of analysis).

Remotely Access LIMS Reports Via The Web

Increasingly laboratories wish to grant both internal departmental staff, and customers, the ability to run reports remotely through the web when needed, and without the cost of multiple LIMS licences.  Qualoupe’s Web Reporting Module utilises a secure login process to precisely enable this.  The reporting portal comes with ten concurrent user licences, allowing a significant number of customers to log in and out to run reports, thus greatly increasing the laboratory’s levels of service to its customers at a cost which, unlike many web reporting solutions, is affordable to all companies.

Increased LIMS Reporting Efficiency

The efficiencies created by Qualoupe’s reporting capabilities can significantly contribute to the cost justification of the overall Qualoupe LIMS.

“Since going live with Qualoupe we have benefited considerably from the reporting capabilities, our reports vary greatly in format dependent on the type of testing being carried out for each customer. Qualoupe was able to cater for this requirement straight from the box and as such has made significant time savings, 7 hours per week if not more.” – Steve Gardner, QTS Analytical Ltd.
