    Contentful

    Contentful is well suited for folks who want a simple, clean, easy-to-use interface for a JAVASCRIPT website. If you do not want a javascript website you should look [elsewhere].

    Orchard Harvest LIMS

    Harvest is well suited in a lab or a reference lab of about any size. You can customize the workflow with filters and permissions to ensure that the right people have the right abilities when they need them. I would say that it is not as great for locations that have multiple remote locations without great internet. Because of the underlying technologies, latency between client and server can cause havoc.

    Pros

    Contentful

    • Clean, modern interface (not clunky and outdated, like WordPress)
    • High degree of flexibility (I can structure data any way my clients need)
    • Enables headless frontend (i.e. I can build any frontend I want without having to change my CMS)
    Andrew Folts | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Orchard Harvest LIMS

    • Good for small labs
    • Good support
    • Configurable for your environment

    Cons

    Contentful

    • The new Contentful "branches" feature looked promising (it appears to mirror a git-like repository) but it requires the CLI, which isn't necessarily practical for teams that aren't current CLI users. It would be nice if the management of this feature were available via the UI (without that it causes more confusion than anything).
    • The Contentful data modeling method makes for a bit of an awkward SDK developer experience in some strongly typed languages like Java. Most things that you might need can be accomplished, but it feels like the experience could be smoother.
    • It would be nice if there were a way to migrate data between spaces (e.g. from your staging space to production).

    Orchard Harvest LIMS

    • User Interface - The software is like 25 years old, and it feels like it. They have added some buttons and links to try to make it easier, but it's not as flashy as the SaaS applications that are being built these days. It feels like there isn't a lot of time spent on refining the features, just adding more to it.
    • Archaic Architecture - The application use 4D for the database. This means that you can't use SQL for queries, latency is a huge issue and there isn't a hosted option. You have to have your own in-house server to run the server application.
    • Client is an Application - We have workstations dedicated to managing the interfaces. These workstations have to run the application as a program and can not run them as a service. This means that if you want to apply Windows updates it required manually closing and re-launching the application.
    • Data Mining - There are some basic reports, but they do not really allow you to build complex reports about the patients or work being performed.

    Alternatives Considered

    Contentful

    Contentful offers a great deal of features for a relatively low price. This is what ended up persuading us to purchase it. We also gathered that this was one of the more well-rated products out there, which was encouraging. It definitely stacks up well against its competitors.

    Orchard Harvest LIMS

    We were looking into changing to another LIS but they failed to get things done and we ended up staying with Orchard. We are now in the process of moving everything to Sequoia since we have grown so much as a lab. I don't have any other experience with another LIS to compare to.

    Return on Investment

    Contentful

    • Positive: faster changes and new associates can easily navigate without prior training/knowledge of CMS to make content updates
    • Negative: Our website manager/provider can keep certain abilities (like changing specific images) so they can charge a fee for making the change
    Nathaly Sierra | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Orchard Harvest LIMS

    • The support provided by Orchard Software for Harvest allows me to not have to worry as much about the system. I can grant them access to my system and trust them to work on the issue while I work on other issues.
    • The automation saves a lot of time for those in the lab. There have been a few times that the lab has been down for a couple of hours and having to catch up and enter the results from the instruments manually can take the rest of the day.
