For laboratory administrators, scheduling labs, whether research or clinical, can be a daunting task. In the past, lab scheduling was a manual process that involved a significant amount of time and energy to keep it up-to-date. Fortunately, automated lab scheduling software has evolved significantly over the years, making it easier than ever for labs to manage their resources and optimize productivity. Let’s take a look at how automated processes scheduling software has changed over time.

The Development of Automated Scheduling Software

In the early days of automated laboratory scheduling software, users could only create static schedules with limited features for managing resources and personnel. As technology advanced and new programming languages became available, developers began adding more features such as automatic notifications and reminders when schedules changed. This allowed laboratories to quickly update their staff on any changes in real-time without having to manually inform everyone involved.

Modern Automation Features

Today’s automated laboratory scheduling software offers an impressive suite of features that make it easier than ever to manage resources and personnel. These features include drag-and-drop functions for quickly creating schedules; customizable views that allow users to customize how they view the schedule; powerful reporting tools; and integration with other systems such as LIMS (lab information management systems), sample tracking and data handling and scoring software. Additionally, some modern automation tools also offer smart algorithms that can suggest optimal staffing plans based on historical data or current trends in the industry or even workflow management.
