Will Willman, Global Med's Sr. Vice President of Sales and Marketing EU/ME/Asia, commented, "The Beaumont-sur-Oise Hospital Laboratory chose EdgeLab for several reasons: EdgeLab interfaces well with Inlog's EdgeTrack blood bank software (not available in the U.S.) which is already installed in the hospital and it has a wide range of features important to Beaumont-sur-Oise's laboratory operation. In addition, EdgeLab was recommended by other labs in the area, the software is user-friendly, and Beaumont-sur-Oise had a very positive experience with our project managers while installing EdgeTrack."
