Integrated as part of the TEAMS system, the TEAMS Sample Exchange network enables consultancies that don’t have an in-house laboratory to outsource their sample analysis without the extra admin.
Laboratories that use TEAMS can download the sample details from the surveyor onto their TEAMS system, ready for analysis. Once the samples have been analysed, the TEAMS Sample Exchange network automatically returns the results, classifications and PDF bulk to the original consultancy electronically.
TEAMS Sample Exchange can also be utilised by laboratories themselves. TEAMS Sample Exchange offers laboratories the option of outsourcing work or accepting work from other Laboratories which use TEAMS.
Frequently asked questions - FAQs
The lab - The receiving lab has no admin involved in setting up the samples for analysis, and no admin involved in issuing of the sample certificate afterwards.
The consultancy - The sending consultancy has no admin involved in getting their results and PDFs back into their system once the lab has completed the work.
If you have specific requirements for material descriptions (classifications), TEAMS Sample Exchange will automatically cater for these.
When the lab performing the analysis indicates the type of material, a second dropdown list will appear displaying a list of client specific material descriptions from the original consultant. This is automatically drawn from the original consultant when the samples are "checked out".
The labs own material description opinion is still shown on the certificate, but the consultant receiving the data back from the lab with also receive material descriptions they are familiar with also.
You can expect to find your results and certificates delivered back to your TEAMS server in as little as 15 minutes after the lab has completed analysis.
These results require no admin involvement, and will update your survey reports and findings automatically.
