EISC Releases Its Latest Environmental Software

September 15, 1998

Las Vegas — Environmental Information Systems, Corporation (EISC) announces the release of the latest version of its environmental software, the Metals Analytical Review and Reporting System™ (MARRS). Specifically designed for metals testing, MARRS™ is a software system that performs automatic analytical review and reporting in any type of regulatory and client specific terms. It works to directly increase laboratory production, ensure data quality and integrity, reduce “re-work”, and eliminate backlog.

The latest version, MARRS 3.1, offers even greater flexibility than previous as a laboratory is now able to essentially “self-define” its own system. This is achieved through the user’s ability to manage the lab’s own reporting lists, qc criteria, truevalue lists and qualifier lists. Thus, a laboratory can adjust the system to report a variety of statement of work criteria such as: SW846, CLP, DOD, AFCEE, ILCO3.0, or any other client specific reporting. Moreover, an inorganic laboratory has the option of utilizing significant figures in non-clp reporting…establishing significant figures and significant digits on both a form and an element level.

The overall benefit of MARRS still remains its ability to substantially decrease turnaround time without jeopardizing data quality. Paul Banfer, Vice President and head of product development and implementation, states, “the increase in productivity we’ve witnessed has been tremendous – with previous turnaround (at the analytical review and reporting stages) in the production of a client package running anywhere from two to eight hours – being reduced to under 30 minutes. When you have that kind of impact on your company’s productivity – you can literally change the way you do business because the focus on backlog and the processing of the data is eliminated. There is more opportunity to work on other areas of your business, including the immediate increase in market potential created by this product.

In further discussing the software’s performance, Banfer points to its unique aspects, such as its dual module structure which provides both analytical review and client reporting capabilities within one system. He also notes that it is the only system that automatically performs the analytical review of an entire run, and does so within 90 seconds. Banfer further mentions that MARRS also offers the ability to generate any type of client specific reporting and is fully networkable within the laboratory. He states that ease of implementation is another key feature, explaining that this is minimal and will not impede your normal, daily laboratory production. In addition, Banfer believes that MARRS is a more preferred system because it combines data by direct connections and uploads from metals preparation, analytical instruments and client information from your LIMS. This alone increases productivity and data quality by significantly reducing the risk of human error (manual entry of data is still an option, if required).
