OneNote and SharePoint to improve collaboration at Pfizer
Drug discovery teams at Pfizer are experiencing Microsoft One Note, synchronized with SharePoint, to make more efficient their collaboration in team management.
MS OneNote has been deployed for Pfizer to help drug discovery teams with collaboration. According the giant, first results are impressive in terms of productivity. OneNote is a kind of project notebook where researchers record and share notes and documents within an intuitive and simple-to-use interface. It is of course completely integrated with Office tools and synchronized with famous document libraries of SharePoint Server, which stays as the central repository. OneNote is now one of the 3 pilars of the KM system at Pfizer (2 others are Newsgator to collect info and Wiki to capitalize internal knowledge). End-users indicated that they feel to save 45 minutes a week with this new solution, which has a significant impact in company revenue. Have been reported also a decrease of emails exchange as well the volume of files stored on servers. Teams are shifting to a “culture of knowledge sharing”, the Holy Grail of KM workers, concluded a manager.
