ScienceCloud Tasks: Engage with external partners via mobile phone

 

ScienceCloud Projects: Access, search and share project data

"Leading life sciences companies are looking for innovative, cloud-based collaborative research solutions that can address the needs of today's scientific workforce, who increasingly rely on social networking and mobile communication for productivity gains," said Matt Hahn, Ph.D., senior vice president and chief technology officer at Accelrys. "Our new mobile ScienceCloud offering is a game-changer, providing new task-based and project-based applications for the many mobile devices that are rapidly becoming ubiquitous in laboratories today."

With ScienceCloud Tasks, scientists using the industry-standard Accelrys Pipeline Pilot scientific authoring application and the Accelrys Mobile Collection can rapidly build and test mobile-ready protocols supporting key life science tasks and deploy them to mobile users in a networked organization. As well as working in the cloud, the application also works with local, on-premises Pipeline Pilot deployments, supporting mobile workflows in server-based environments. With ScienceCloud Tasks, protocol authors can leverage mobile functions including image capture, location services, chemistry sketching and audio/video/speech handling. Project teams can produce mobile-optimized charts and graphs scaled to particular mobile devices and assign specific tasks to particular members. ScienceCloud Tasks improves workflow efficiency and productivity by enabling mobile-enabled scientists and researchers to:

  • View status reports and project dashboards
  • Run scientific workflow tasks (upload images to Notebook, scan barcodes, perform chemical searches, etc.)
  • Share task results with other mobile users

ScienceCloud Projects allows collaborative teams to communicate around research projects via mobile devices. Mobile-enabled scientists can access and search real-time project data and engage in project-related conversations, anywhere and anytime, improving collaboration and accelerating innovation by enabling project teams to:

  • View project status and communicate results
  • Access, search and share project data
  • Post and read project-related social media-like updates
  • Receive instant notifications of new shared information

ScienceCloud Tasks and ScienceCloud Projects are part of an open and growing ecosystem of web and mobile applications developed by Accelrys and third-party software partners to address the current and future informatics needs of externalized drug discovery projects. ScienceCloud Tasks was developed in collaboration with Eidogen-Sertanty, one of ScienceCloud's early partners.

ScienceCloud Tasks and ScienceCloud Projects are available now as free downloads from the Apple® App StoreSM.

To learn more about ScienceCloud mobile enablement, register for the complimentary webinar entitled "Research Collaboration Going Mobile," scheduled for Tuesday, May 6, 2014, 8:00 AM - 9:00 AM PDT.
