“Testing on the back-end server was great and the VPTN team were always available to support us in rolling out ARIN.”
“[ARIN‘s] real-time reporting is an important feature for us in particular for future funding of new instruments as well as justifying salaries and maintenance costs.”
“The ARIN team have been a pleasure to work with and have gone above and beyond in the level of customer service and support they provide in helping us set up the system for our facility.”
“Using ARIN has made it so much easier for my company to access the infrastructure at facilities, such as Flowcore, that we require for our business.”
“ARIN is a great investment utilised heavily by the RMIT Micro Nano Research Facility. Our facility contains a wide variety of multi-discipline equipment that are in high demand and the task of managing the booking and users requests is well organised by ARIN. The system serves as a global promotional tool for our equipment and services for all to see as well as cross communication and collaboration with other facilities and institutes. We are particularly impressed with the different reports the system can produce which has helped us immensely to plan strategically for expansion and fund applications. Thank you to the friendly and helpful ARIN team.”
For Facility Managers and Institutional Administrators, ARIN simplifies the scheduling, invoicing and reporting of their facility resources by reducing technical overheads, cost of audits and ongoing operational costs.
