Bringing ‘All Digital’ to Your Lab

Interested in learning about the transition from paper to digital in the lab? Download our white paper.

Key Points:

  • Life science labs across academia, industry and government are producing, storing, analyzing and sharing a massive amount of digital data.
  • Yet, many researchers still rely on paper lab notebooks that don’t have the capacity, formatting or sharing capabilities to accommodate or integrate digital data.
  • An all-digital approach using an electronic lab notebook (ELN) can solve these issues through improved searchability, time-saving functionality, decreased data entry errors, and more.
  • eLabJournal is an intuitive, flexible, all-in-one ELN that improves lab efficiency when documenting, organizing, searching, and archiving data, samples, and protocols.

A Smart Social Media Strategy

As buyers grow more skeptical of sales messaging and social media ads get more expensive, savvy retailers are embracing an affordable, surer path to consumer trust: influencer marketing.

Creators and influencers are viewed as relatable and aspirational. They are closer to customers than almost anyone, say Deloitte researchers, enabling brands to move, sway and sell at the speed of culture.

And companies are sponsoring influencers for a fraction of what they are paying for ads. Great deal? Let’s discuss.

How effective is influencer marketing, really? What are the risks, and how can retailers reduce them and boost their chances of success? We answer those questions in this resource, arming you with what you need to know to kickstart an influencer marketing experiment — your first steps toward a profitable program.

What’s Next in Collabs?

Similarly, as the industry matures, it will continue to become easier for brands to get the most out of these important relationships. For example, Afluencer offers both free and premium plans for brands to get started, and provides tools to guide brands in their approach, regardless of budget. As with other marketing channels, what it all comes down to is determining a brand’s campaign goals and choosing the right path -- and the right people -- to make it happen.

How will influencer marketing continue to shift? In an industry that is notoriously difficult to predict (who would have thought a man skateboarding while drinking Ocean Spray would be the pandemic’s viral hit?), here are a few areas brands should pay attention to in the year ahead.

Self-Awareness: The Key to Becoming a Complete Leader

Leaders lead, managers manage, supervisors supervise.

More Importantly, they lead others, manage others, and supervise others.

But when was the last time they supervised or managed themselves? Is that even an area of concern for them? Or have they grown so accustomed to observing others that they had forgotten that the fundamental trait of being an effective leader is to be aware of their own behaviors?

Are they aware of how their behaviors are affecting team cohesion, productivity, engagement and more importantly, organizational goals?

Semiconductor Cost Reduction Strategies

For emerging semiconductor chip companies, the primary goal is to get products sold and out of the door. However, as chip companies scale, everyone’s attention turns very quickly to lowering costs. It becomes critically important that Operations and Finance work together to achieve strategic goals and to manage costs effectively. To do that, some advance planning can have a significant impact.

Along with a talented financial executive from one of Tensoft’s fabless semiconductor customers, Tensoft CEO Bob Scarborough co-wrote a white paper tackling this topic several years ago. It was published in the Global Semiconductor Alliance’s “Forum” magazine in 2009, under the title “Semiconductor Cost Reduction Strategies.” Some recent discussions with customers and prospective customers re-affirmed the importance of this topic to both Operations and Finance teams.
