Founded in 1987, Samarind has grown steadily to become one of the leading life sciences software houses in the UK.
On May 31, 2016 Samarind became part of the Instem organization, a leading provider of life science IT solutions. Since 1970, Instem has been committed to helping clients bring life enhancing products to market faster. Samarind will now have access to additional capabilities and reach through Instem as we look to further expand around the world.
Samarind’s professionally qualified and experienced workforce is based entirely in the UK and many staff members have been in the medicines and healthcare industry for more than 20 years.
Samarind is ISO 9001:2008 certified and its comprehensive Quality Management System ensures its entire software development process, including validation, are conducted according to GAMP5 best practices. Unlike many companies, we actually welcome customer audits – no matter how good you think your systems are, there is always more to learn and improvements that can be made.
Samarind developed the first version of its flagship product Samarind RMS for Windows in 2003. Since then it has undergone a number of major upgrades and now stands at version 4. In 2009, recognising both the increasing adoption of ‘Cloud’ based web applications and the cost barriers that often prevent smaller organisations from investing in complex database solutions, the company developed the Internet-based ‘RMS On Demand’ application. This new product quickly gained international recognition and went on to win the TOPRA Innovation Award in 2010.
Samarind is committed to the ongoing development of high quality, sophisticated, user-friendly and well-architected software solutions, backed by a level of customer service that is setting a new benchmark for customer satisfaction within the life sciences and software industries.
