Information Management ::
This department deals exclusively with Information Services & Management and provides scientific, technical and business information for drug discovery and development.
In increasingly competitive markets, and with global operations, companies only succeed by staying ahead of the competition. The decision to enter to new markets and create new products is critical to the prosperity of business. Top quality information, in the right format and at the right time, is essential for decision making by senior management and for innovative Research and Development. It can help organizations identify real opportunities and reduce unnecessary risks.
Information Management initially started providing information services function to Clinical Research (then Medical Services) and Product Management division of Torrent Pharmaceuticals in early '90s as an isolated group. Later, the group started providing information services to other departments of Torrent Pharma and then converted to a functional department at Torrent R&D Center.
