Bound Brook, NJ, September 16, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- DZS Software Solutions, Inc., developers of the ClinPlus brand of products, and a technology and services leader focused on global clinical trial solutions, announced today they have entered into an agreement with PhotoThera, Inc, of Carlsbad, CA to provide Clinical Trial Management Software (CTMS) for their upcoming pivotal clinical trial involving transcranial laser therapy (TLT).
PhotoThera selected DZS‘s new web-based CTMS after an extensive RFP process involving over 10 different CTMS solution providers. “After reviewing a variety of competitive CTMS systems, DZS’s ClinPlus CTMS emerged as the most logical fit for our needs and budget”, said Cindy Croissant, PhotoThera’s Director of Clinical Operations. “One of the main reasons we decided on DZS, was the fact that we found the intuitive design of the system to be easy to navigate, which we felt eventually would translate into less training time and less potential for errors and frustration among the system users. We were also impressed with the simple elegance of the system, the attention to detail, and DZS’s commitment to configure and deliver a product to meet our unique requirements,” added Ms. Croissant.
The ClinPlus CTMS improves site productivity by eliminating redundant systems and existing manual tasks and helps enforce PhotoThera’s adherence to trial procedures and regulatory compliance. The system also helps provide a real-time trial financial and recruitment picture with immediate access to data about patient recruitment, site payments and supply inventory.
The ClinPlus CTMS will enable PhotoThera Clinical Research and Engineering professionals to be proactive rather than reactive, and control and manage trials in ways not possible when only spreadsheets or manual processes are used. The system also alerts users of out-of-window patient visits, late monitoring visit reports, documents due to expire, and other unresolved monitoring issues. And because the system is web-based, all that’s needed is an internet connection and a computer. This allows users around the world to access data immediately and make changes as needed, preventing frustration and errors which commonly happen when one user makes and distributes all changes. As a hosted solution ClinPlus CTMS offers low start-up costs of between $50.-120./month per user, with very few IT implementation issues, robust data security, and unmatched levels of efficiency. And, by improving overall efficiency, ClinPlus CTMS helps reduce overall product timelines and the ability to meet trial deadlines.
