Singapore: Scale-up Systems, a leading provider of process development software to the pharmaceutical industry, entered into a multi-year agreement with ScienView, a fast-growing life science IT products and services company, to provide DynoChem software, training and process development support services to the Chinese pharmaceutical industry.
The motivation behind the agreement is to provide a dedicated local presence to help Chinese users to obtain maximum value from DynoChem's tools. The initial team in the Beijing and Shanghai offices will be led by Dr Jinjun Wang for training and technical support and will also be led by Mr Jack Ma on the business side.
According to scale-up systems CEO Dr Joe Hannon, "We have been looking for a partner in China that, like our company, specialises in working with and understands the needs of the pharma and life sciences industry. We are therefore delighted to be working with ScienView."
ScienView's VP of informatics services, Dr Zhen Wang, stated that, "Many of our clients are pharmaceutical, chemical or CRO companies, and they are delighted to know that DynoChem will be provided to them along with our top-quality support. With the rapidly increasing R&D investments in China, businesses here also face significant challenges on managing costs and reducing pollution. DynoChem is an excellent tool to help them achieve these goals and is complementary to our products and services."
Mr Jack Ma, business development manager, ScienView, added that, "As the founder of the Shanghai Scientific Informatics Salon, a technical networking forum for big pharma, CRO and chemical companies as well as academics, ScienView finds that scientists and engineers here are very interested in new techniques and tools that can be applied successfully to their work and can be effectively supported by a local team."
