Find out what prompted us to explore Researchstream from Evalueserve, a web-based platform for research and information team managers, which seeks to replace old workflow systems.


Benchmark information roles - Jinfo models of excellenceAs a manager of a research and information team, your work life would surely flow better if you had access to a systematic platform that could help you manage research projects and track time and staff productivity, along with your other workflow. Wouldn't it? 

As this is clearly the case, why haven't we seen an abundance of these platforms being designed, despite the digital age we live in? Why is there still a reliance on email or intranets?

Luckily, as part of our Research Focus, "Benchmark information roles - Jinfo models of excellence", Jinfo has discovered Researchstream - a new web-based collaborative platform from Evalueserve. Read our walkthrough to see how it could help you manage your busy research service.
