“I am very excited about the partnership between HP and Kayentis,” says Tab Edwards, HP Market Development Consultant. “The combination of HP’s broad portfolio of hardware, software and services, along with the Kayentis Digital Pen and Paper-based solutions, makes for a powerful combination of innovative companies to address the strategic needs of our customers.”
The Digital Pen and Paper (DPP) market is expanding on a worldwide scale. According to Infotrends/CAP Ventures, more than 150 billion paper forms are used globally by enterprises on an annual basis. In many different markets, a lot of companies are still using paper and pen as their main interface to capture data. DPP offers is a high-tech solution adapted to an ancestral way of gathering information.
“HP was, alongside with Anoto, at the origin of the deployment of the Digital Pen and Paper technology, so it is logical that we developed over time special commercial and operational relationship” adds Guillaume Juge, General Manager of Kayentis. “There is a tremendous market potential for our solution. We are working today with international pharmaceutical laboratories, biotechs, CRO, for whom we deployed our solution in more than 50 clinical studies in 40 different countries (including emerging countries like India, Mexico, Tunisia...). This partnership with HP allows us to conquer the US and European Life Science market with solutions which cover our customer needs at each stage of the drug life cycle: R&D, Pre-Clinical, Clinical, Post-Market and Sales. “
“Our technology is particularly meaningful in the clinical research arena, as we are the first company with large global experience to offer what we call: ‘paper-based e-trials’,” says Philippe Berna, CEO of Kayentis. By sharing our expertise with the HP team we will provide our customers a full and globally validated solution including high-quality support and logistics. That partnership is definitely accelerating our international expansion in the USA and Europe.”
