Understanding the challenges of Product Literature Databases
Pi2 have unrivalled experience in designing, developing and maintaining Product Literature Databases (PLD). This has been accomplished through extensive partnership since Pi2’s first PLD in 2003, with both the owner/administrators of PLD's and their end-users. The Pi2 team understands the different uses to which literature is put by different user types and can tailor their applications to address specific departmental needs.
The need for a professional PLD
A good Product Literature Database can address a number of typical and undesirable consequences that may arise in the absence of a good PLD. Often information users search resources such as internet sites and mainstream biomedical databases in an ad hoc and inadequate manner, introducing a lack of precision into the search process, missing key information and wasting time sifting unnecessary references. Inefficiencies are created through multiple affiliates and departments repeating similar search literature tasks, sometimes creating their own local solutions. Significant efficiencies can be achieved by introducing a capable, central PLD, tailored specifically to the needs of diverse user groups.
Tuning the PLD to Users’ workflow
At the start of every project we survey your users' needs to identify the “angle” that your users find important when searching product literature. From this we develop a document capture policy and keyword indexing policy unique to your company. This results in high usage, cost-efficiency and user-effectiveness in carrying out their key tasks.
We know our users do not rely on product literature alone - they often need access to diverse information sources to complete tasks closely related to product literature. From our experience, these “Related Resources” are often in a number of different locations, often not instantly accessible to the user and disconnected from each other.
To address this, these important and frequently referred-to documents are linked to corresponding bibliographic references by the Pi2 PLD system, seamlessly connecting documents and related references. This is particularly useful when considering company documents which cite important articles that you would expect to find in your PLD. Bibliographic lists can be output by the system for example, for product monographs, medical letters, clinical studies.
The Complete Solution
Pi2 is organised to provide an A-Z suite of services around your product Literature Database or just the part you would like to outsource.
