Inova Launches Partner 3.5

The latest version of Partner allows business developers and scouts to spend less time populating the system and more time pursuing opportunities

Inova PartnerLyon, France – 27 January 2014: Inova Software, the leading provider of partner management software, today announced the release of Partner version 3.5. Partner is designed to support the full range of partnering activities in the life sciences and is already being used by 50% of the Top 20 pharma companies in addition to 30 midsize pharmas and biotechs. The focus of this latest update is to help business developers and R&D scouts spend less time searching for and compiling data and more time pursuing the best opportunities.

“Compliance is the reason partnering tools exist. In the Life Sciences, business developers are in the middle of an eco-system, bridging and connecting this eco-system is key to achieving compliance,” commented Gilles Toulemonde, Inova CEO and founder. “No other software provider can rival our expertise in partnering or our understanding of the life sciences’ unique needs, challenges and pain points. The updates in this release are focused on addressing key challenges faced by business development professionals today and on strengthening our connections within the life sciences industry.”

This new release features:

  • One click asset and company creation: For users of Thomson Cortellis, a new product, asset or company can be created by typing just three letters and clicking once. Users create a new product in the system using up-to-date, complete information faster than ever before.
  • Eliminate duplicate efforts: One of the greatest challenges for BD teams is eliminating duplicate projects and wasted time and effort. Thanks to a new Autocomplete feature, users creating a new object are immediately alerted to potential duplicates.
  • Find exactly what you’re looking for: Users of Thomson Cortellis have always been able to search the Thomson Cortellis database directly from the Partner application and import the relevant results. With this release, users can execute searches that are as precise or as broad as they want.
  • Create a new project in seconds: While importing objects from Thomson Cortellis, new in-licensing projects can be created in seconds from the imported object.
