CITC helps project managers spend less time managing teams and more time selecting the right compounds for synthesis. The project team can spend more time making compounds rather than manually entering data, administering, and reporting. It also helps to manage projects in chemistry, biology, analytical chemistry and purification, ADME, etc. in an efficient manner, which results in increased productivity, quick turnaround times, and faster decision-making for a drug discovery program.

Some of the uses and benefits of CITC include:

  • CITC helps in the On-boarding of NEW Collaborators and manages their Chemical Inventory and Compound.
  • It is useful in generating productivity metrics and reports with charts on a weekly basis, and also provides real-time scientific data for exchanges between researchers and collaborators.
  • CITC helps in Chemical management processes such as chemical register, search chemicals, low inventory list, current inventory, chemical transaction, chemical allocation, chemical consumption, link barcode etc.
  • CITC provides support in the live tracking of inward starting materials with transparency and visibility.
  • CITC helps make the feedback process easy and convenient by generating feedback from collaborators so they can share their valuable feedback and suggestions.
  • CITC helps provide greater transparency and collaboration by providing real-time project management support, which also leads to faster decision-making.
  • With CITC, collaborators can access various records of the chemistry experiments and reactions whenever required.
