Phase Forward, a provider of data management solutions for clinical trials and drug safety, and SGS have extended their multi-year, multi-million dollar clinical data management partnership.
The new pact reinforces the companies’ close working relationship and offers SGS’s customers the benefits of Phase Forward’s InForm Global Trial Management, Clarix Interactive Response Technology and Maaguzi Web-based electronic patient reported outcomes (ePRO) and late phase solutions, according to a Phase Forward statement.
The companies have worked together since 2002; SGS manages nearly 100 clinical trials and processes more than one million case report form (CRF) pages each year.
“Our customers are looking for an integrated eClinical solution comprising multiple systems,” said Luc Braeken, global director, Biometrics Services, SGS. “This agreement will allow us to respond to customer demand for this integrated solution with innovative product sets from a market leader. This solution is designed to meet the needs of even the most demanding clinical development professional, offering more effective ways to manage clinical operations, help ensure product safety and reduce time-to-market.”
“SGS has established a reputation as a leading provider of integrated solutions from preclinical activities, to phase one through four trials,” said Mike Davies, vice president, global CRO partnerships, Phase Forward. “We look forward to building on the success of our collaboration to date with the solutions that our acquisitions of Clarix and Maaguzi add to the equation.”
