Meet the new Hivebench
At shazino, we are continuously looking for new ways to help you do your research. That’s why almost one year ago, we introduced Hivebench.
During the past year, we have been working to improve your experience on Hivebench, using continuous integration methods to deploy new versions several times a day, which allows us to be very reactive to your feedback.
A few months ago though, something became clear to us. Our interface was way too complicated, and it was more and more complicated
for our users to efficiently discover it and quickly master it.
So we decided to pivot and reboot the application.
Today, we happily deployed that new version in our cloud platform at hivebench.com.
While we’ve keeped some key points like:
- Sharing experiments with coworkers inside a notebook.
- Creating protocols and inserting them quickly inside an experiment.
- Signing experiments and asking coworkers to countersign them.
- Uploading images and files inside experiments.
We’ve also been focused on a few features like:
- A much cleaner and simple interface, focused on improving your daily work.
- PDF generated for signed/countersigned experiments are now signed electronically.
- A calendar page, allowing you to see all your experiments for the day and move them if necessary.
- The protocols are now splitted in two categories: protocols and recipes.
Our pricing model has quite changed too.
We have decided to make the cloud version of Hivebench free to use with some limits. All of your data on the cloud platform remains private of course.
However, by signing up for the “Open Science” plan on Hivebench, you commit towards doing your best to publish and share your experimental results to the scientific community.
If you need to go over those limits, don’t want or can’t share your experimental results with the scientific community, we invite you to get in touch with us for our in-house installation.
Of course, shipping this new version is not an end for us.
Like we have been doing for the past year of Hivebench being publicly released, we’re going to keep fixing bugs and implementing new features.
