Alliance provides improved project management tools and collaboration for clinical teams

SAN DIEGO and OAKLAND, Calif., Sept. 12, 2012 -- Trial By Fire Solutions, a web-based software firm serving the life science industry, has formed a strategic collaboration to integrate Projecis with its SimpleCTMS platform to gain efficiencies in information distribution and knowledge building. The partnership builds on the value that each individual service offering provides to clinical study management.

Projecis meets the unique needs of the clinical research industry by addressing how people and content are assigned and logged within the system, allowing for precise analytics, simplified process, and timely trial completion. SimpleCTMS provides a flexible planning and tracking application that is focused on the clinical trial workflow. 

The integration points between SimpleCTMS and Projecis will include milestones, news, calendars, action items and documents.  Study teams will benefit from the unique strengths of each application, and will further benefit from the information sharing and synchronization between applications.

"Projecis and SimpleCTMS share the goal of providing flexible, easy-to-use, affordable tools to study management teams," says Jon Cecchettini, Co-Founder and CTO of Trial By Fire Solutions. "Working together, Projecis and SimpleCTMS provide a fresh alternative to manual worksheet trackers that can benefit study teams of all sizes. With the team collaboration and communication features of Projecis along with the targeted study tracking features of a clinical trial management system (CTMS), clinical teams work smarter and more effectively."

The CEO of Projecis sees the collaboration as meeting the needs of the clinical research industry. "There's a need for project management tools that enable diverse clinical management teams to communicate, collaborate, measure progress and share project assets in real time, as evidenced by increased demand for our product in recent months," says Russ Holmes.
