Electronic Test Request System built with Power Apps
A multinational pharmaceutical company responsible for collecting, labelling, shipping and result collection of test samples from various locations needed a system to bring everything under one digital solution that can automate the process of requesting a test and help to monitor and track the test request, as well as effectively notify on upcoming tasks where action is required.
