Less admin work more time for research
Bookkit is Clustermarket’s easy-to-use lab management system. It helps organising equipment and service bookings from students, researchers and technicians within your laboratory and university.
The lab management system has been developed over the last two years with extensive user testing. The result is a software system with an intuitive interface that can be used anytime, anywhere.
We are able to implement Bookkit in your lab within 60 minutes (calculated with 12 users, 20 instruments) if you provide us with the relevant information. The implementation includes account setup, equipment upload and training of all users. Afterwards, we provide 24/7 customer support.
Reduced administrative work
Keeping an overview of bookings, cancellations, lab users, access rights, training, maintenance and recharges is challenging without a technical solution. Bookkit provides you with booking rules, user management and usage reports that reduces your daily admin work.
Additional Income (Optional)
Increase your facility’s commercial exposure and generating additional income, by promoting services and equipment access to companies and academics on Clustermarket’s marketplace. If you choose to allow external scientists to access your equipment themselves, you will be able to enforce training, safety inductions, technical guidance or other add-ons directly via the platform. This makes equipment sharing secure and convenient for everyone. Currently, you can offer your services and access to equipment to scientists at more than 550 organisations.
