ProQuest Acquires Pi2
ProQuest announced its acquisition of the U.K.-based Pi2, which provides information and literature management to biopharmaceutical companies. By aligning Pi2’s systems with the Dialog service, ProQuest can create a single solution for pharmacovigilance and streamline the drug safety workflow.
“ProQuest Dialog and Pi2 have an existing partnership and common customers, who have expressed interest in tighter integration between these tools,” says Tim Wahlberg, Dialog’s SVP and general manager.
To achieve this integration, pharmaceutical companies that use Dialog to monitor scientific literature for drug and therapy news can use Pi2’s Drug Safety Triager to automate the review, categorization, and indexing of their alert results. Their results flow into the Pi2 PinPoint Product Literature Database, which houses them in a customized repository.
