Can you share a brief description of your business and your role?
I own a company called Terramor Technologies. We are a DEA Certified Cannabis Analytics Laboratory, which means that I test products and flower coming from all over the US for companies who want to be compliant with the regulations in their state. Each company receives a Certificate of Analysis after the samples are run through the Lab.
I am the owner and Chief Technician / Scientist : I manage all of it except for the finance, my Wife / business partner is the CFO.
What business problem were you trying to solve with RowShare?
I needed a way to track the samples I receive efficiently.
To process information, laboratories can use LIMS (Laboratory Information Management System). But these software companies are targeting mostly high-volume laboratories. LIMS programs can be around $600 – $1,000 per month . They also charge a lot for the implementation. Moreover, I tested a few of them. Some are very complicated, way beyond what I need.
I was trying to find an alternative to LIMS to avoid having all of the sample information in my lab notebook. I used to enter lots of the information manually. It took a lot of time and was less secure. I am still using my lab notebook to enter some information but I am considering extending my use of RowShare to stop using it entirely.
How did you hear about RowShare for the first time? Why did you choose RowShare over the alternatives ?
I found RowShare during an online search. I tried their solution and decided to go for it. I was amazed about what it is capable of. Lots of things in RowShare are not so different from a LIMS. It is a great alternative. It is a time saver and helps me avoid errors.
