 Alert to the future implications of the internet as far back as 1996 when ELab was being initially developed as the world's first web browser-based LIMS, LabLynx was already envisioning a cloud-hosted industry. So we were always perfectly poised for when technology became sufficient and businesses began to see its value.

- Scalability: Expanding (and contracting) operations to suit conditions is considerably easier when you don't own your own servers, employ IT infrastructure personnel, etc. That makes businesses more efficient and thus more viable, even in the face of unfavorable circumstances or difficult economic environments.
- Coordination: When data are in the cloud, they can be accessed simultaneously from anywhere, and versions of files are easily controlled. Timestamps are consistent.
- Geographic Irrelevance: Increasingly, companies minimize time and costs of commuting and traveling by working from home and/or communicating via Skype, GoTo Meeting or similar video-conferencing programs. The cloud supports this since apps are available any time, from anywhere. Additionally, collaboration is made simple, from anywhere on the planet.
- Cost: Obviously, the costs of maintaining its own complex IT network can be significant for any business, and this has meant that for a long time smaller organizations have been at a disadvantage. With the cloud, economies of scale mean that any size lab, agency or project can enjoy the benefits of the latest technology without the overhead.
- Smooth Operations: Built-in redundancy, fail-over, updates and backups mean that operations are rarely disrupted, and that means greater productivity.
