If you work in the pharmaceutical field, what does Jinfo's recent benchmarking research offer you?

The analysis of the research we recently launched for our Research Focus, "Benchmark information roles - optimise your structure" illustrates that those pharma companies who took part distinguished themselves from their counterparts in manufacturing and professional services in a number of important ways.

Join us at our August events, during which we'll explain what those differences are.

At the same time, our pharma participants had a number of characteristics in common with other industries. For example, their purchasing and licensing is pressured on both sides by budget reductions as well as fee increases. 

When we analysed the inputs from pharma companies gained through our benchmarking research and combined that analysis with our one-on-one consulting work with some of the premier pharma information teams globally, we were able to get a clear view into what the best pharma information teams do to establish, enact and communicate a clear vision for their contributions to the success of their organisations.

Find out what those three key insights are in our August pharma events.

The future of information strategy in the pharma industry demands fresh inspiration. Information managers interviewed for our benchmarking data cited sources like TedTalks, Harvard Business Review and the Pharma Documentation Ring (P-D-R) as great sources of inspiration. 

Jinfo is also a source of inspiration, as well as a practical resource for bridging the gap between "great idea" and the practicalities of here and now. If you haven't yet done so, contact us to secure your place at one of the events below. 


Join a pharma-focused walkthrough of Jinfo, including a short presentation on our benchmarking research and how you can use it now to lay the groundwork for 2018. We'll also highlight our articles, reports and webinars of interest to organisations in the pharmaceutical sector in areas from specialist content sources to patent databases and our research into discovery solutions.

This event is open to Jinfo customers and prospects: Monday 21st August, 16:00 - 16:30 (BST)
