TestAmerica Provides Industry Leading Risk Management Capabilities


TestAmerica, the largest laboratory network and leader in environmental testing, announced today the completion of its investment program in fully redundant systems and procedures to serve clients during disasters affecting their sites and TestAmerica lab locations. In this major risk reduction program for clients, TestAmerica has invested to combine the industry’s only fully networked single Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) with a state-of-the-art end user data interface, ‘TotalAccess’, remote Project Management access for nationwide support and a completely redundant systems infrastructure for power and operational disruptions. Collectively, these actions materially reduce the risk for clients and safeguard against potential disruption of service during emergencies.

“With these investments for a single LIMS system, hot back-up and TotalAccess, TestAmerica can assure clients that in a disaster, their data remains secure, accessible and supported by Project Managers in multiple locations with multiple points of redundancy. When Hurricane Sandy hit the New York area, our systems remained operational, our clients had access to their data, and our Project Managers working remotely across our network could assist those at our New Jersey facility,” said James E. Hyman, CEO of TestAmerica.

TestAmerica’s client risk management program of a single and integrated LIMS with backup and redundancy has the capability to handle thousands of client projects and reports 24/7. TotalAccess, TestAmerica’s state-of-the-art, online data delivery software system enables clients to securely access their records for current projects and over five years of historical data. In addition, with the industry’s largest network of over 50 Account Managers, over 90 service locations, and 200 Project and Client Service Managers, TestAmerica can handle multiple projects and provide access anywhere at any time to manage client data and deliver reports even under emergency conditions.
