Today's federally funded research programs are innovative and fast-paced. But the software they're using isn't.
That's because most laboratory safety, inventory, and reporting software simply doesn't meet federal security guidelines — which means it's not an option for government agencies.
Instead, they’re stuck with decades old software that does not improve and only becomes more obsolete as time goes on.
Getting information out of these outdated systems is like pulling teeth. Researchers spend too much time on tasks that take them away from their research, and EHS teams spend too much time on tasks that take them away from meaningfully improving safety. In some cases, these two groups may even be working from different sets of data!
In fact, our risk analyses show that EHS staff are forced to waste as much as 50% of their time on administrative tasks that software should be doing for them.
BioRAFT changes all that.
