1 Technology As A Sales Tool: How Organizations Use Electronic Notebooks To Retain Customers And Increase Sales Robert D. Walla, Michael S. Zachowski, Richard P. Albert Astrix Technology Group 175 May Street Edison, NJ 08037

2 Abstract R&D Organizations spend millions of dollars annually on the implementation of new technology. The main focus to date has been to leverage technology within the company to increase the efficiency the organization. Many companies are now extending technology beyond the traditional product development pipeline to include their customers in an effort to increase customer loyalty and drive sales. Most of the information technology tools (data acquisition systems, LIMS, electronic laboratory notebooks) have been deployed within the R&D organization to eliminate manual data collection processes, share data across the enterprise and increase organizational efficiency. However, much of this data collection effort ceased when the new product or application was shipped to market. The next generation of data capture is to connect R&D organizations with their existing clients and prospects. The utilization of technology outside the traditional R&D organization into the customers environment provides valuable information to product development staff that was previously unavailable. It has been demonstrated that collection, interpretation and utilization of this customer centric data improves client service, promotes client retention and ultimately increases revenue. The use of electronic notebooks is ideally suited for this application and links the product development cycle to the customer.
