Externalized Collaboration Suite

Accelrys has launched its Externalized Collaboration Suite, a software solution designed specifically to address the needs of life sciences organisations engaged in externalised network research.

According to the company, the suite is the only offering currently available that addresses the full range of externalisation needs, from technology transfer through networked collaboration to scientific informatics across all research data including experiments, chemical structures, assays and other test results. The result is a more holistic externalisation strategy for partnering pharmaceutical, contract research, biotechnology and academic organisations, as well as increased flexibility, reduced complexity and improved operational excellence in collaborative network research.

The Accelrys Externalized Collaboration Suite enables secure real-time, cloud-based access to results within research networks by both sponsor and partner organisations, enabling them to advance their parts of shared projects with maximum efficiency and speed. The suite comprises Accelrys HEOS, Contur ELN and the Accelrys Enterprise Platform.
