Developed by CKLO, Agendo is a web-based platform that delivers a comprehensive set of fit-for-purpose solutions to core facilities and research infrastructures. Being the product of years of experience in a research environment, it was designed to answer the needs of sharing and optimising expensive-to-acquire-and-to-run resources, either equipment, services and human. Agendo provides numerous features that facilitate resource management, including extensive booking rules and automation, project and requests managements and detailed billing. In addition, it was conceived to privilege communication and reporting, offering a set of communication channels (such as a chat tool, embedded social network and mailing lists), integrated reporting, issue tracking and targeted surveys. Importantly, in Agendo data is managed following the FAIR principles to promote reproducibility of science data. By integrating comprehensive workflows and a wide range of configurable options, Agendo manages to facilitate and enhance core facility management.
