The cure for digital denial in R&D laboratories

The self-test for digital denial is obviously a joke. We hope it made you smile.

Nonetheless, there is a serious side to it. it actually reflects many of the real concerns R&D laboratories have, to this day. Concerns that may delay their decision to abandon manual or semi-manual solutions – and go digital.

Some of the most common questions we get from new customers are:
Will we have to change the way we work?
And how do we overcome the resistance to change?

Well, ask yourself:
Are you working in the best possible way right now?
And do you have a choice?

Remember that many leading R&D laboratories – of all sizes, in every market, all around the world – have seemingly effortlessly, taken on digital technologies.

We know. Because we helped quite a few of them.

In case you still feel uncertain about your organization’s ability to digitally transform its operations, we put together a list of useful resources to help you make up your mind.

A cure for digital denial – if you will. Good luck.

5 essential reasons you need an Electronic Lab Notebook

An ELN means you can finally step away from your stacks of old paper notebooks. You will be able to create reports faster and analyze data with ease to free up time. A Cloud-based solution enables you to access it anywhere, at any time for full visibility and traceability of all data.

Infographic: The Cost of Data Errors

Research and development can be time-consuming and costly. As an example, the successful development of a new pharmaceutical drug takes about 10 years and costs $2.6 billion, on average. According to one study, poor data quality, redundant data and lost data is responsible for 15%-25% of companies operating budget.
