For the past 150 years, Pfizer has pioneered the development of some of the industry's most innovative pharmaceutical products. In 2007, Pfizer applied this "Out of the box" thinking to a pilot program designed to enhance efficiency and knowledge management across project teams, and potentially speed time-to-market for new products. The pilot brought together the simple, intuitive user interface of the Microsoft Office OneNote 2007 note-taking program with the robust document management technology of Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007. As a result, pilot participants reported a significant decrease in the number of e-mail messages they send each day, and one group reported a 15 percent increase in efficiency.
