ReDA Open Day 2015

ReDA Open Day 2015

The 2015 delegates were a healthy mix of seasoned ReDA clients and those who were relatively new to the system – which made for an excellent networking opportunity for everyone involved.

The format was rather different from the previous year – with a far greater emphasis on the product itself and how to get the most from its exciting new features.

The day began with an introduction to the whole Infonetica product portfolio from Infonetica Commercial Director Martin Fox.

He spoke specifically about –

  • Ethics Review Manager
  • Tissue Auditor
  • Whitehall Training, and of course,
  • ReDA.

Dean Reeves then took over with an essential guide to what’s new about the totally revamped user interface – ReDA3. The new version is already being successfully used by several customers and is being rolled out over the next few months to the remainder.

The keynote speaker was Lucy Parker, Head of Research Governance at St George's, University of London and St George's University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, who is already a power user of ReDA3. She gave an excellent talk, outlining the way St Georges uses ReDA and bringing a fresh perspective to the possibilities of ReDA3.

This year we held interactive sessions in which the delegates could individually raise what they wanted from the day and even rank the development pipeline in terms of how the items would affect the way they use the system. The ReDA team will feed this back into the development roadmap to help ensure ReDA keeps developing in the way customers really need.

As usual, the day finished with a lively Q&A session.

Thanks again to all who attended – we hope to see you next year.
