Bayer: Leveraging insightful reporting for partnering excellence

Inova's story with Bayer began six years ago, when the German pharma company decided to merge six different Business Development & Licensing teams to form a single Bayer Partnering team. As the success of this partnering function is crucial to the organization, they decided to look for a software, so they could set up a single partnering process that would encourage synergy.

Cornelius Kurz
Cornelius KurzGlobal Project Manager BD&LBayer
"We had 3-4 solutions to choose from. The most critical features for us were user-friendliness, customizability, connectivity to Thomson Reuters’ Clarivate and insightful reporting. In the end, we decided Inova Software would be our best way forward."

How Ferring built its entire external technologies scouting process

Since 2015, Ferring has been using Inova Software as its unique partnering solution for managing all external opportunities, which led to the R&D, BD and Alliance Management teams working more in synergy. In 2016, the company decided to create a central function for scouting drug delivery technology, which was done previously in a more unstructured way.

"I wanted a solution for my Technology Scouting team that required minimal IT involvement. The BD and AM teams were already using Inova Software and happy with it. I am very glad we also chose Inova, it’s intuitive and easy-to-use."

How Roche and Genentech established one partnering solution with Inova

Inova Software has provided an end-to-end solution for partnering that was configurable for each team’s different needs.

Ology Bioservices scales up sales activities using Inova Software

From 2013 - 2017, Ology Bio underwent enormous growth. They changed their business model from a products and formulations company to a CDMO with a complete service offering focusing on vaccines and recombinant proteins/antibodies, and increased staff by over 40%. Through this expansion, their sales opportunities also grew rapidly. They were searching for new clients for their expanded services as well as partners for subcontracting work. At the same time, Ology Bio continued to offer licenses on their Vero Cell Vaccine technology platform, and needed to maintain relationships with potential licensees.

Leslie Molony
Leslie MolonyExecutive Director of Business Development at Ology Bioservices
"The CDMO sales cycle is a very long, relationship-dependent process. You meet the same person at different events as their project moves though clinical development. Inova Software helps you track everything in one place, so when your lead becomes a real opportunity, you have all the information you need. Thanks to Inova, we’re more efficient and productive. It’s a powerful solution for CDMOs."

Transgene was founded in 1979, making it a pioneer of the European biotech industry. A member of the Merieux group of companies, Transgene is dedicated to designing and developing targeted immunotherapies for the treatment of cancers and infectious diseases.

Hemanshu Shah

"We looked at a lot of CRMs, but didn’t have time for the heavy customization they required. We are very happy we chose Inova Software. It is intuitive, easy to use and fits our processes. Any biotech looking to scale up their partnerships will benefit from Inova."
