We knew that many researchers were making the move from paper to EDC, but were having challenges finding systems with the right features at the right price.
Madison, WI (PRWEB) June 18, 2013
Forte Research Systems, Inc., developer of specialized clinical research management software, announced their newest product offering, an electronic data capture (EDC) system catering to researchers with tight budgets and a desire to get started quickly. With the right balance of sophistication, ease-of-use, and affordability, Overture EDC is ideal for researchers in the academic setting that need a system powerful enough to handle today’s complex clinical research protocols.
“We knew that many researchers were making the move from paper to EDC, but were having challenges finding systems with the right features at the right price,” said Srini Kalluri, Founder, President, CEO and Chief Customer Officer at Forte Research Systems. “We had powerful EDC functionality as part of our OnCore eClinical solution that was successfully meeting the needs of large academic research organizations and cancer centers. So, we knew we could offer a stand-alone system that would excel in this setting.”
Forte has over a dozen years of experience developing software for clinical research sites that have collectively used these systems to manage over 20,000 clinical trials. Leveraging this experience, Forte has designed an EDC system that draws on the insights of its customer community. Some system highlights include:
- Hosted software, which can be set up and used with just a web browser and internet access, making it easy to get up and running quickly.
- Available to license on a per-trial basis, so you pay only for what you need.
- Sophisticated forms designer with drag-and-drop functionality allows for forms that are easy to design, preview, and use for data capture.
“With Overture EDC, research staff can set up electronic case report forms in a matter of hours, without needing to know any programming language. This puts the focus back on the trial instead of on the technology to support it,” said Kalluri.
