E-WorkBook 10: All the Power You'd Expect from E-WorkBook, Now on the Web

At IDBS, our sights are firmly set on enabling collaboration, helping research and development (R&D) organizations gain greater insight from their data and getting their products to market quicker. So we asked ourselves how we could make this simpler. With E-WorkBook 10, not only will you have the power and performance you’ve come to expect from E-WorkBook, you’ll also discover the simplicity and ease of use that comes from an intuitively designed interface, and the flexibility and mobility that comes from our web-based spreadsheet technology.


One of the most groundbreaking features of E-WorkBook 10 is the ability to make use of our spreadsheet technology via the web client. This makes the technology more accessible to many more users and lets them work in a more mobile way, when and how they want, and using different platforms. Aside from accessibility and mobility, we’ve also put a lot of effort into looking at how people use our software day-today and making everything in the spreadsheet environment simpler and more intuitive to use.

With our spreadsheet technology now available on the web client, we believe that E-Work- Book 10 will revolutionize the way users relate to our technology. The opportunities created for collaborative working across departments, geographies and between third-parties are boundless. The intuitive and simple interface cuts down on complexity and training costs while deployment of the web client makes installation much easier. Its supporting infrastructure also allows for greater flexibility and scalability to meet your future resource needs. We believe it represents the future of research and development (R&D) data management.

“Today’s labs are asking for so much more and we’re aligning our software with where the science is taking our customers. We’ve invested significant R&D into E-WorkBook 10 to deliver game-changing enhancements to our proven technology,” said Scott Weiss, Director of Product Strategy at IDBS. “Our customers are already impressed with our depth of functionality and now we’ve added an intuitive and simple interface to enable them to work faster and with increased flexibility through the browser. It means researchers can spend less time searching for things and more time doing science with advanced data insight.”

Available now, E-WorkBook 10 is based on a heritage of rich user-centric enterprise software. This major step forward in the E-WorkBook journey offers a tried and tested solution, unlike some of the more niche software currently on the market. Existing users of E-WorkBook can add the browser-based functionality at any time. Total cost of ownership is reduced as the browser-based software enables central changes which can be deployed across the organization with minimum installation.

Changing the Rules

It has been over 40 months since President Obama signed the Leahy-Smith America Invents Act (AIA) into law in September 2011, climaxing years of feverish legislative wrangling. AIA was heralded as a game-changer, the dawning of an equitable intellectual property (IP) regimen that rewarded research scientists and innovators beset by ineffectual patent processes and procedures.
