In one year, seventeen new life science companies signed worldwide, including medtech, biotech and top 150 pharma companies 

In 2014, Inova signed 17 new life science customers, reinforcing Inova’s leading position in the market and confirming the industry’s need for dedicated partnering software. The new clients include medtech, biotech and top 150 pharmaceutical companies from the USA, Japan, China, India, South Korea, Singapore, Belgium and Italy. Nearly all of the new clients chose Inova’s cloud offer, which is hosted by Interoute at their datacenter in Geneva.

“We’re very proud to have set a new record for new clients. It’s clear that the industry likes what we’re doing and that our product responds to the needs of life science partnering professionals. For over 14 years, we’ve worked closely with our life science clients, developing expertise in partnering best practices. This expertise is reflected throughout our software, making it the most advanced partnering tool. In 2014, we specifically focused on making life easier for our users – reducing data entry, offering an easy, but expert reporting solution and making the application faster. We’re building on this momentum to make 2015 an even more exciting year, with new partnerships and new product launches on the horizon,” said Gilles Toulemonde, Inova CEO and founder.

Key milestones in 2014 included:

  • Better integration with Thomson Cortellis – Say goodbye to manual data entry! Thanks to the Thomson Cortellis connector, you can access Thomson Reuters structured content directly from within our software. In just one click, you can import, autocomplete or update your most critical information.

  • Reseller Partnership with ShareVault – Collaborate better with your partners. This partnership enables Inova to resell ShareVault’s secure document sharing and Virtual Data Room (VDR), the life science industry’s preferred virtual data room as selected by the Biotechnology Industry Organization (BIO).
  • SaaS Version Launched: Inova is in the cloud! To bring you the best performance and fastest speeds, we’ve created a hosted version of our partnering software. We’ve chosen Interoute as our hosting partner, whose best-in-breed data centers guarantee maximum security and performance.
