Tools for Clinical Trials Professionals

Software release is a one-stop solution for sponsors looking to streamline their clinical trials

Sierra Scientific Software (Emeryville, CA) has released a comprehensive eClinical trials package that enables sponsors to run a trial with a single system, rather than rely on multiple suppliers. The result is a single vendor delivering one integrated, fully interactive, Part 11-compliant solution that captures, archives, and reports on real-time information across the entire enterprise.


With the CRIS v8 Project View feature, integration of information across protocols, compound, regulatory application or indication is possible. The software is customizable since it supports data capture from many sources, from traditional double (or single) data entry, EDC, electronic upload through a variety of formats.

This package, developed through an alliance with Science Application International Corporation (SAIC), integrates with other enterprise applications such as finance and project management and supports all steps in a clinical trial process, including clinical trial management, clinical data management, safety reporting, and investigational materials tracking.
