Electronic Data Capture (EDC) is currently a hot topic in the science and engineering sectors.
Driven forward by the explosive growth in mobile computing platforms and the continual improvement in connectivity, EDC offers a way of integrating data collection with existing corporate systems to enable rapid access to live data. This enables faster decision making and more active management of the data gathering and processing workflow.
EDC is already making a large impact in a number of key areas. The commercial world has been quick to embrace it and systems are widely used in retail, delivery and on-line ordering. Corporate companies are making large investments to keep their organizations competitive using EDC.
Manufacturing is also investing in EDC for active data collection within the workplace and the science and engineering sector is leaping forward with applications such as electronic lab notebooks and environmental data collection in remote locations.
The biggest investments and potential returns are currently being made in clinical trials data collection where more accurate data collection and faster data returns offer huge benefits, from more effective clinical trials to better patient management.
