A synopsis of timely and critical information for the independent laboratory industry, highlighting ACIL’s effort to protect and grow the market and educate regulators and consumers as to the value of independent testing.
“We religiously attend both the P2 meeting in April and the Annual Meeting in October. The quality of the speakers and the information we gather from these meetings is incredible. As an owner of an independent testing lab, I don’t know anywhere else I can receive this kind of education that aids me in growing my business.”
ACIL provides several opportunities each year to network with peers, agency stakeholders, customers and industry experts resulting in long-term business relationships that provide direct benefits to member companies. Some of these opportunities include:
“As members of ACIL we are able to network with vendors related to our industry. One of the vendors provides CMET Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS) software and after a thorough evaluation we felt that this software and provider was a good fit as a business partner. This software will allow us to provide better management of our field, laboratory, and equipment calibration schedules; data reporting and turn-around time; assistance with automated billing; and organization of personnel training, evaluation, and certification. We look forward to implementing this software across all ten of our CMET divisions. We may not have had this opportunity without capitalizing on the networking advantage ACIL provide.”
“There is no easier way to access leaders of the independent testing laboratory community than participating in ACIL. As president of a construction materials engineering and testing company, as well as former Chairman of ACIL, I appreciate every opportunity to meet with other testing laboratory owners, manufacturers, and suppliers. We are all part of the same industry and together we can create new technologies, new opportunities and increase profitability.”
Laboratory Support Services (Fee-for-Service Value)
“We have utilized the services of SESCO since their affiliation with ACIL. We see them as a significant benefit and offer the ability to consult on a wide variety of HR issues and policy matters, saving the expense in many cases of having to rely on outside consultants.”
Members enjoy many benefits through associations with other independent laboratories that help to emphasize their core competencies. For more details, read the ACIL Value Proposition.
