Findings Software SAS develops and distributes laboratory informatics software solutions.


Findings Software was founded on July 1, 2013[2] by developers Alexander Griekspoor and Charles Parnot.[1] The company released a demo of its Mac-based Findings software on April 25, 2014, with plans of a version 1.0 of the software to follow soon after.[3] However, Parnot revealed a month later that the duo had been working on the framework for Findings five years before, but work on another project called Papers had taken their attention away from Findings. Version 1.0 of the software was released on May 22.[4] On August 18, the company announced a demo of Findings for iOS was available upon request.[5]

Findings is an electronic laboratory notebook (ELN) for Mac and iOS "that aims to replace the paper lab notebook still in use in most research labs."[6] The company stated it may consider creating a Windows version if demand is sufficient.[6]
