Seamless Access to Knowledge
Speeds up Discovery

At the heart of Boehringer Ingelheim’s research engine is the company’s Scientific Information Center, which is responsible for providing seamless access to scientific information. To advance its research and regulatory activities, Boehringer relies on the Article Galaxy platform to keep its 8,000 knowledge workers humming with a steady stream of scientific content.

About Boehringer Ingelheim

Quick Facts

Founded: 1885

Ingelheim am Rhein, Germany

Headcount: 50,000+ employees

Industry: Pharmaceutical

Company Overview

Boehringer Ingelheim, one of the world’s top 20 pharmaceutical companies, is known for its innovation across three business areas: human pharmaceuticals, animal health, and biopharmaceutical contract manufacturing.

Why Article Galaxy

Boehringer leverages Article Galaxy for fast, copyright-compliant access to thousands of articles every month. Key features include:

  • Lowest cost filters and duplicate alerts
  • Integrated search with 70+ databases
  • Usage analytics and reporting

The Challenge

Boehringer’s Scientific Information Center envisioned establishing a lean, centralized knowledge access system that would result in cost savings on a global scale. Previously, however, each of the company’s 145 global operational units (OPUs) had its own way of doing article procurement. And although the corporate library had a document delivery provider, the quality of service, pricing, and access to the content was not up to par. The Center was falling short of its vision.

The Solution

Powered by copyright-compliant document delivery services, Research Solutions’ Article Galaxy platform includes advanced filters.

The platform performs a double check of Boehringer’s holdings and subscriptions, as well as a check for Open Access availability. It also provides Boehringer with the usage analytics it needs to make smarter procurement decisions.

The company’s cost per article is much lower than before, and the savings become exponentially valuable as the volume of procurement continues to rise.
