Surrey Clinical Research Centre Signs a 5-Year Pact for OmniComm Systems' Promasys Software [Manufacturing Close - Up]
(Manufacturing Close - Up Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) OmniComm Systems, Inc. a provider of clinical data management solutions for clinical trials, announced the signing of a five year agreement for its Promasys investigator initiated trials (IITs) technology with Surrey Clinical Research Centre (Surrey CRC) at the University of Surrey, a UK based research center focused on the design and execution of Phase I and IIa trials in sleep, psychopharmacology, oncology, immunology and vaccines.
According to a release, after a thorough evaluation process of various commercially available technologies, Surrey CRC selected Promasys technology to manage its clinical research activities. Promasys ranked highest across all categories including ease of use, fast study build, data quality and integrity and volunteer recruitment. Promasys' versatility through its mobile technology and overall functionality, as well as its lower total cost-of- ownership, was also a significant factor in the decision.
"We look forward to working with OmniComm Promasys," states Carol Stillwell, head of data management, Surrey CRC. "Having worked with several commercial technologies over the past couple of years, we were impressed by the ease of operation of the Promasys system, and with the backing of an established company such as OmniComm feel that Promasys will go from strength to strength."
Promasys will be used by Surrey CRC to support both in-house and external studies including investigator initiated trials (IITs), National Health Service (NHS) studies, and industry sponsored trials.
"We are extremely proud to have Surrey CRC as our first Promasys customer in the UK," says Wolf Ondracek, senior vice president of Academic and Asian Markets and managing director, OmniComm Promasys. "Promasys software originates from an academic environment at a top class clinical pharmacology research centre very similar to Surrey CRC. So it is a very natural fit, and it will be a pleasure for us to work closely with Surrey CRC and support them in getting the most out of our software solution."
The Surrey CRC is a specialist clinical pharmacology unit housing 24 beds in a purpose-designed building, situated close to the Royal Surrey County Hospital.
OmniComm Systems is a strategic software solutions provider to the life sciences industry.
