With their latest product innovations, IDBS is continuing to find new ways to help R&D organizations capture, manage, and gain insights from their scientific and operational R&D data. They are excited to announce the release of E-WorkBook version 10.5.0 for both their cloud and on-premise platforms.

To prepare for E-WorkBook 10.5.0, IDBS placed a focus on listening to their customers. A lot of the E-WorkBook 10.5.0 functionality comes as a result of customer feedback. The 10.5.0 release of E-WorkBook is part of IDBS’ continuous commitment to improve the best scientific informatics platform in the marketplace.

Join us as Stuart Ward, Director of Product and Solutions at IDBS dives into The E-WorkBook 10.5.0 feature release. They will show you how E-WorkBook users can mitigate risk with enhanced compliance features, plan work more efficiently, and gain even more insight into their research and operational data.

Analysts and business users can expect to learn about possible outcomes of new features and capabilities introduced to the platform.

Technical users can expect to learn about:

API developments, for example:

  • Extracting data from E-WorkBook in a machine-readable format and allowing the data to be inserted into corporate data lakes for subsequent investigation
  • Using the updated custom panel framework to create searchable workflows specific to the systems in your organization

Enhanced compliance, for example:

  • Using the new filter controls to enable faster QA reviews when viewing experiment and spreadsheet audit trails
  • Save time when migrating between systems and environments by importing/exporting inventory configurations

Simplifying user workflow, for example:

  • Registering multiple batches of chemistry compounds, each with their own registration ID and properties
  • Added inventory capability, to simplify user processes, that allows the printing of labels for locations, contents of locations, and from search results
  • Take advantage of the new inventory location browser to further simplify user workflows
  • Other capabilities, including simplifying deployment architecture and others not described above, that drive more productivity, efficiency, and risk mitigation
