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