Biovia CISPro

Transform Your Scientific Operations with BIOVIA CISPro and Adaptive

Science- and process-based organizations have traditionally managed biological and chemical materials, inventory, and related processes manually—first with paper and pen and then with multiple different spreadsheets. But in order for your organization to survive and thrive in this era, you’ve got to innovate products and reduce costs to globally and sustainably deliver a high-quality product. Isolated files and siloed bits of institutional knowledge don’t drive any of the best practices that spark innovation.

Adaptive can help your organization create an environment that makes your scientists, labs, and manufacturing processes more effective and efficient. With Dassault Systèmes BIOVIA and BIOVIA CISPro—built on their 3DEXPERIENCE platform—you get an efficient, centralized system that collects critical enterprise data, encourages collaboration, and enables cross-functional development efforts.

How BIOVIA and CISPro Can Revolutionize Your Labs

BIOVIA provides the tools your teams can use to simplify complex processes, collaborate effectively worldwide, and innovate more quickly. The CISPro system adds a chemical inventory management component to the basic BIOVIA software, thereby consolidating and streamlining your material management, ordering and purchasing, and compliance processes.

With BIOVIA CISPro:

  • Your lab scientists and workers can search, source, and request chemicals or supplies from an in-house stock or from external suppliers. And they can view full linked chemical data and safety data sheets (SDS).
  • Your purchasers and lab managers can manage complete material inventory logistics, including purchasing, receiving, dispensing, disposal, and compliance.
  • Your EHS professionals can track and monitor on-site chemicals, as well as report on regulatory actions and limits.

Of course, getting the most out of a chemical inventory management system goes beyond installing the software. That’s where Adaptive helps your teams implement operational best practices. Key practices start with basic compliance, everyone using the system as it is intended. Corporate culture must also adapt, to a point. While the system can be tailored to your organization’s needs and even to each specific lab’s needs, there must also be some compromise, some adjustment of your operations to the needs of the system.

In addition, the system should be easy to use and easy to train on, so that there are as few barriers to participation as possible. Automation and seamless integration with other enterprise systems can make operations significantly easier for your workers, so that the system complements and supplements the work done in your labs, but doesn’t replace it.

Organizations that implement BIOVIA CISPro have proven to save time and therefore money (see more in this CISPro cost infographic:

  • 80% of researchers rate real-time access in chemical inventory data to be their most beneficial capability
  • 50% less time per person spent on chemical and regulatory reporting
  • 25% less overall time spent on chemical inventory management

Adaptive Makes it Easy to Get Started

BIOVIA CISPro is available on-premise or as a cloud subscription, and Adaptive can help you determine which implementation will be most appropriate for your current and future needs. Once the software platform is running, Adaptive can also help you tailor group settings, vendor lists, and individual workflows for each lab in your organization.

How to Master the 3DEXPERIENCE Cloud Platform-Video Series

Learn how to use 3DEXPERIENCE on the cloud with our Exclusive Video Series

These short videos (about 2 minutes each) take you step by step from set up and adding users to sharing documents and working together on the cloud. Watch how James, along with his team members Ryan and Maria and supervisor Florian use the 3DEXPERIENCE platform to plan and manage design projects for their team. 

See the benefits of using a design platform like 3DEXPERIENCE first hand such as:

  • Accessing the right data, files and drawings in 3D
  • Collaborating and managing design project schedules and tasks across teams
  • Easily importing CAD data from other systems to leverage the entire toolset
  • Finding old part files or drawings for reuse that are buried in other databases
Watch Adaptive's 3DEXPERIENCE Video Series today.

The 3DEXPERIENCE platform supports the design and development of products digitally. The platform houses multiple applications within one software system seamlessly. As a user, Flo (from our video series), logs in only one interface yet can access all of the different facets of the 3DEXPERIENCE he has licenses to from that one platform (i.e. SIMULIA, CATIA). 

This platform, from Dassault Systèmes, allows users to collaborate in real-time on projects no matter their location providing a single version to work from. No more storing parts of the digital data from a project in multiple platforms that are locked away and difficult to find. 

Another important aspect of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform is that it is infinitely scalable. You can start with a basic functionality and then add to the platform as your business scales or bring in other teams to the product lifecycle.
