The Francis Crick Institute

To deliver life changing research and discoveries, The Francis Crick Institute has a strong dedication to reaching its goals with modern technology.

Since beginning our work with The Francis Crick Institute almost 10 years ago, we’ve built out a comprehensive, personalised roadmap to success following its core mission, ‘Discovery without boundaries’. The Francis Crick Institute wanted to explore the possibilities of Power Platform to improve the accessibility of reports and data across the whole organisation.

The simplicity and cost-effectiveness of building out its own solution is what the institute is looking for in a modern management platform, which is why it adopted Power Apps to build an app tailored to its unique needs.

Discovery without boundaries

Before the deployment of Power Platform, the institute found it challenging to communicate and share data between departments. With the rollout of Power Platform, it has created personalised apps across all areas to enable staff and students to fully focus on their roles, drive collaboration, and store data effectively.

“It’s critical when you’re on that kind of journey that you’ve got the right partners alongside you.” James Fleming, CIO, Francis Crick Institute

The fundamental mission of The Francis Crick Institute is to develop life changing research. Now, with the rollout of unique apps, the scientists at the institute store their data on a secure, accessible database and view research on an intuitive Power BI dashboard.

Opening up communication, simplicity, and accessibility, The Francis Crick Institute is able to ensure it’s getting the best out of what it does every time with our specialist guidance.

Through our partners and connections, The Francis Crick Institute has access to an invaluable amount of support from specialists, making the rollout of its new modern technology as smooth and accessible as possible. Scientists at The Francis Crick Institute now engage with research in a more effective way to drive impactful discoveries.
