The Francis Crick Institute is a unique partnership between six of the world’s most influential and respected scientific organisations:
Annie Kent, Finance Director at The Francis Crick Institute, said: “The Crick had three key themes that its chosen systems must deliver: usability (a highly intuitive user interface and efficiency tools), flexibility (ability to respond quickly to future changes), and integration (seamless working with other systems). Science Warehouse was carefully selected after a rigorous tender process and we are looking forward to its implementation supporting our scientists.’’
Dr David Hames, Chairman of Science Warehouse, commented: “The Crick has an exciting and ambitious vision of research excellence – with the scale and expertise to tackle the most challenging scientific questions underpinning health and disease. Science Warehouse is absolutely delighted to have been chosen by the Crick to help it achieve these inspiring goals.”
“Leading researchers are not interested in procurement – nor should they be. They need to get the equipment and reagents they need for their research as quickly as possible and with minimum hassle. As Science Warehouse has proven at many other leading research bodies, our solutions are data-rich, fast and intuitive – geared to delivering the information that researchers need quickly to their fingertips. That lets researchers focus on world-class research, not procurement.”
