VantagePoint – Smart Charts Edition is a customized version of VantagePoint, developed jointly by Search Technology and BizInt Solutions for use by BizInt Smart Charts customers.

VantagePoint – Smart Charts Edition offers BizInt Smart Charts users powerful features for normalizing and filtering data in multi-database reports. Used in conjunction with the BizInt Smart Charts Reference Rows utility, VantagePoint helps BizInt Smart Charts users create enhanced reports and visualizations from drug pipeline, clinical trials, patents and IP sequence reports.

BizInt Smart Charts customers can sign up for a free trial of VantagePoint - Smart Charts Edition.

With VantagePoint - Smart Charts Edition (VP-SCE) you can:

  • normalize terminology (company names, indications, etc.) across databases
  • filter data to include only information of interest in your report. For example, filter the Drug Development Phase table to extract the highest phase for a specific indication, or the Patent Family to only show selected authorities.
  • extract keywords and classifications from text
  • create standard visualizations including bubble charts and timelines, or custom visualizations especially designed for pharmaceutical analysts, including "piano" charts and launch timelines.

The Cookbook of Reports and Visualizations provides examples with step-by-step recipes showing how you can create compelling reports and visualizations with your own data.

About VantagePoint – Smart Charts Edition

VantagePoint – Smart Charts Edition is PC-based Windows software which is installed on each user's PC.

VantagePoint – Smart Charts Edition contains VantagePoint's core analytics suite including market-leading Data Cleanup, Thesaurus, Record Classifications, My Keywords, and interactive analytical visualizations. Data exchange between the two tools is simplified to make it easy to move data back and forth, allowing the user to concentrate on analysis and reporting, rather than managing data flow.

VantagePoint – Smart Charts Edition does not contain the import filters found in VantagePoint; data can only be imported from BizInt Smart Charts reports using the XML Smart Data Exchange format.

How does it work?

VantagePoint – Smart Charts Edition imports files exported by BizInt Smart Charts for Drug Pipelines, BizInt Smart Charts for Patents or BizInt Smart Charts Reference Rows, using a custom version of the new XML Smart Data Exchange format. BizInt Smart Charts users can apply data cleaning and user-managed thesaurus tools in VantagePoint and then export cleaned and normalized fields back to BizInt Smart Charts as new columns. BizInt Smart Charts users can also use VantagePoint tools to create powerful and interactive visualizations.
