IntraLinks users will now be able to use the SAFE-BioPharma digital identity for signing documents. They can increase clinical trial efficiency by signing paperwork with a SAFE credential that provides additional security and speed, eliminating printing of hard copy casebooks and other documents.
Users will have the opportunity to upload and use their SAFE-BioPharma digital identities on the IntraLinks® platform, ensuring that their credentials are available anywhere via the Web. IntraLinks is also enabling documents signed with SAFE-BioPharma signatures to be stored and shared on its existing platform.
“Incorporating SAFE-BioPharma’s digital identity and signature standard into IntraLinks’ platform is very significant for our clients and the community who rely on IntraLinks to manage their clinical trial communication and document exchange,” said Alison Shurell, VP, life sciences product marketing, IntraLinks. “In addition to already being able to securely upload, receive, review and distribute documents on IntraLinks, sponsors, CROs and investigators will soon be able to eliminate the need to print out or physically store the numerous documents that require signatures during a clinical trial."
In addition to incorporating the digital signature into its platform, IntraLinks has joined the SAFE-BioPharma vendor partner community.
