BioPharm Systems' Clinical Trial Management System Accelerator Turning One

ASCEND Earns High Marks From Users as Demand Rises

SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwire - June 9, 2010) -  BioPharm Systems, a leading provider of clinical trial, data, and safety solutions, is preparing to celebrate the one-year anniversary of ASCEND, its clinical trial management system (CTMS) accelerator. ASCEND is a pre-configured and enhanced version of Oracle's Siebel Clinical application, designed to make this world-class system affordable for small and mid-sized life sciences organizations. The company's CTMS accelerator significantly reduces implementation costs and timeframes, and includes robust capabilities found on many companies' wish lists.

"After implementing Siebel Clinical at multiple large-scale global organizations, I began to notice a pattern of requested functionality," said Parambir Singh, Vice President of Clinical Trial Management Solutions, BioPharm Systems. "It occurred to me that, if we could develop this functionality once and package it, we could make a robust CTMS attainable for small-scale organizations -- the very companies BioPharm has been committed to since its inception."

BioPharm Systems already has several biotechnology, pharmaceutical, and clinical research organizations using ASCEND and numerous others in the midst of their implementations. Current ASCEND users are continuously impressed with the product's functionality and value.

"We needed an efficient tool to help us centrally access information and proactively make better business decisions," said Roxane Aubray, Director, Clinical Operations, Axcan Pharma. "Selecting ASCEND as our solution answered our challenges and much more. The users love the interface as it's easy to understand. Furthermore, our external partners found the application to be much more convivial compared to other past experiences. ASCEND helped eliminate administrative paper follow-ups, redundancies, duplicate efforts, and allowed us to streamline our overall processes. We were very pleased with the support from BioPharm, our implementation partner. They gave good counsel and understood our business requirements very well."

The company also recently formed an ASCEND user group, which allows current users to exchange best practices and suggest improvements for future versions.
