How Allnex Provides its Scientists with Easy Access to Scholarly Research

Since 2014, Allnex has utilized RightFind Enterprise for literature management needs, making it easier for colleagues to find the chemical information they need, and allowing the information specialists to focus on high-priority requests that arise.

Fielding daily information requests from researchers around the globe is no small feat, but for the knowledge management department at Allnex, it happens every day.

Allnex, a specialty chemicals pioneer boasting 75 years of innovation, offers a broad portfolio of coating resins, additives and crosslinkers to global customers in areas like automotive, industrial metal, packaging and inks, and more.

John Schillemans, one of three information specialists who comprises the company’s knowledge management department, says, “Despite still having a physical library, the process for acquiring information on a digital scale has changed quite a bit in the 30 years I’ve been in this position.”

One of those key changes was the implementation of RightFind Enterprise back in 2014. Since then, Allnex has utilized RightFind Enterprise for literature management needs, making it easier for colleagues to find the chemical information they need, and allowing the information specialists to focus on high-priority requests that arise.
