London/ Boston: March 18th 2016: Symplectic, a provider of world-leading research information management software and services, today announces a major new addition to its flagship product, Elements. The new module will allow Symplectic’s clients to design, share and report on internal & external research assessments, streamlining what were traditionally time-intensive, paper-based activities.
Designed with the researcher in mind, the new module repurposes data the system has previously captured on their behalf, either from public, private or licenced data sources. This removes the need for the repetitive manual form-filling common in other researcher assessment and faculty reporting systems.
Jonathan Breeze, CEO, Symplectic said:
“All of our institutional and funder clients are being asked to demonstrate the quality and impact of their research. Our new Assessment module has been designed so that those questions can be answered without increasing administrative burden on researchers. We’re confident our clients around the world will make great use of our latest functionality.”
Alongside the Assessment Module, the latest version of Elements also includes a completely redesigned user interface, offering an intuitive experience to researchers and faculty. Key interface enhancements include:
- Simplified system navigation
- Greater visibility of the researcher profile
- A new carousel with direct links to a prioritised list of tasks
For current users, the full release notes for v5.0 will be available soon on the Support Site.
We’ll be releasing more information in the weeks to come, including video demonstrations and a deeper look into the Assessment Module. Stay tuned!
