Is Your Legacy ELN Holding You Back?

Info Sheet

Are you tired of your outdated technology? Do you want an ELN that’s intuitive to use? Would moving to the cloud make it easier for you to access and manage valuable data? It might be time for you to move away from your old R&D software…

Legacy ELNs are struggling to meet the needs of both chemists and biologists who frequently use different, siloed platforms for their work. Across R&D, the move is towards web-based applications, and for good reason – zero footprint deployment, with easy access from a browser interface from anywhere within an organization (and from your CROs). This provides researchers with a flexible system that can work with a wide variety of data types and experiments, to accurately capture data and provide strong evidence to support conclusions.
