Autoscribe Informatics Announces LIMS Distributor in West Africa

Promatics Technologies Nigeria becomes Autoscribe’s West African Distributor

Autoscribe Informatics is delighted to announce that it has appointed Promatics Technologies Nigeria as our distributor in Nigeria to sell, configure and support the Matrix family of Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) products. Based in Abuja, Nigeria, Promatics Technologies provides a range of technology services and consulting solutions, including healthcare and clinical systems, to clients across the region.

Steve Boother, Managing Director at Autoscribe Informatics, said “in order to grow our market in West Africa we needed to find a distributor that knew laboratories and appreciated the power that software/informatics solutions can bring. Its software system knowledge and location in one of Africa’s most modern and fastest growing economies makes Promatics Technologies Nigeria an ideal choice.”

Matrix Gemini LIMS is particularly suitable to this market because of its unique ability to be configured, with no changes to underlying software code, for a wide range of industries. This feature provides the ability to modify screen designs, terminology, reports, workflows and more, within the LIMS to quickly meet user requirements. This allows Promatics Technologies Nigeria to tailor LIMS solutions to the exact needs of individual laboratories in their local markets.

Promatics Technologies Nigeria has two offices in Nigeria, Abuja and Lagos, and a third in Ghana. Nigeria is the largest trading nation in Africa ($445M in 2019) and is also the most populous with 206 million (2020) people providing an ideal location from which to expand LIMS business across West Africa.

Matrix Gemini provides us a user-friendly LIMS solution that we can quickly adapt to meet the needs of our clients and provides great growth opportunities here in Nigeria and across West Africa.”
