Overall, NREL needed a secure and more organized review process. SpringCM provided a FedRAMP authorized central repository.

Accelerating the review process for over 4,000 research pieces every year

NREL's scientists are committed to researching alternative energy for commercial purposes. Their research is then made public in over 4,000 publications every year.

The extensive peer review process for each article was slow and lacked visibility. Documents were getting lost in email, and since a new version of a document was created each time it was emailed, the wrong versions were often sent out. Overall, NREL needed a secure, more organized review process.
