Research in the Food & Beverage, Consumer Packaged Goods and Chemical industries drives product innovation, underpins intellectual property and must be carefully documented to support product claims, safeguard patents and secure corporate knowledge. While pharmaceutical scientists have widely adopted Electronic Lab Notebooks (ELNs) and even spearheaded their development, companies outside of Pharma are also adopting ELNs to improve collaboration, drive productivity and better protect IP.
In 2010, world famous food company HJ Heinz implemented an ELN across their North American R&D operations. They have migrated 200 scientists from tedious paper-based processes to a new ELN system supporting more innovative process and product development.
Heinz's successful ELN deployment is helping them bring products to market faster and respond more quickly to market trends. Heinz exemplifies how scientists outside Pharma can also improve knowledge sharing/re-use and cross-team collaboration through company-wide ELN implementations.
Key Learning Objectives:
• Critical business issues driving ELN adoption
• What capabilities to look for in an ELN
• Common implementation challenges
• What benefits to expect from an ELN implementation
