NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – IDBS said this week the Boehringer Ingelheim is using IDBS' E-WorkBook Suite to help streamline and improve its research and development efforts.
The pharma firm has deployed the solution in its North American offices with the next roll-out planned for Germany, IDBS said. Eventually, it will be used by 2,400 users globally. The suite will help researchers at Boehringer Ingelheim capture, record, search, retrieve, and share data more efficiently. The E-Workbook will also be integrated with existing infrastructure such as laboratory information management systems to enable a more centralized and highly configurable data flow.
Boehringer Ingelheim selected E-Workbook because, among other reasons, it "enables us to derive value from our data across all of our domains including research, development, and animal health," Thomas Reith, head of IT research & development and medicine at the pharma company, said in a statement. IDBS "exceeded our expectations during the pilot program and we can now retire multiple in-house solutions to support our future growth on a global basis."
The financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
