I am looking for information about software solutions your organizations may be currently using, or have used in the past, to track the workflow for contractually required research deliverables like reports, data submissions, and presentations. Ideally the system would work with our legacy systems, for example our system for managing research funds to be able to track time to be charged to particular funds, and will provide the ability to assign due dates and report out to assigned authors and project managers. This particular system would be to replace two home grown systems that are 20+ years old (one still based off of an Access ’97 database).
I would also like to know if you are using the systems to help capture these deliverables for a separate records repositories or if you are using one solution for all activities.
While we are a R&D center at the University of North Dakota specializing in energy and environmental research, I would be interested in hearing what other sectors with similar basic requirements for document tracking and workflow are doing as well. You may contact me directly at rflynn@….
