Biotech companies typically work with multiple CROs and remote teams. Managing and delegating work remotely can be challenging for both small startups, and large biotechs. How can research teams manage workflow in a controlled, efficient manner? How can you ensure all teams are following the same data recording protocol? How can management limit the chance of repetition when working with multiple teams?

In this discussion, we will demonstrate how simple it can be to create, assign, and keep track of the workloads you have in your funnel. More importantly, you will see how our ELN tools will save you lost time and effort.

● Experimental work can be prioritized by project and team leaders. This reduces the need for meetings, emails and other ad hoc ways of communicating status. Tracking who prioritized which items and when they did it allows for accurate reporting of key project metrics.

● Integrated workflows enable real-time feedback to the user. On-screen notifications provide the scientist with information about the availability of equipment, sample preparation and instrument data. This streamlining greatly increases individual productivity. When these workflows are fully integrated, stepwise execution of a process can also be enforced without separate documentation or outside monitoring. For example, results cannot be entered for a sample until the sample preparation is properly documented and completed.

● Search results can also be informed by the context of experiments. The review and approval of experimental results being a built-in part of the experimental process makes it trivial to screen out results that have not yet been finalized, for example. But the user can also optionally include these data if they are of interest. In loosely integrated systems these simple kinds of queries can involve complex reports that are difficult to toggle between different data sets.

As the workforce is slowly being allowed to return to work, companies are still taking precautions to prevent any further virus outbreaks. Innate workflow management tools enable management teams to delegate tasks to their teams that are onsite more effectively.
