SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - December 14, 2016) - PharPoint Research, a North Carolina-based Contract Research Organization (CRO), has committed to a contractual expansion in the number of clinical trials they will conduct with Medrio, a Software as a Service (SaaS) company providing electronic data capture (EDC) services to clinical trials. This agreement is a direct result of the growth of PharPoint Research, as evidenced by their recent Fast 50 award by the Triangle Business Journal.
The commitment between the two companies strengthens their partnership and reflects the value that PharPoint Research has placed in Medrio's services during this period of rapid growth. PharPoint Research views Medrio as one of the top EDCs for quick study build and high data quality, and therefore as conducive to the efficiency that PharPoint Research will require as it continues to emerge as an industry leader and one of the busiest CROs in the region. "With our growth, we continue to utilize Medrio as our primary tool for data capture," said Moya Hawkins, Director of Data Management at PharPoint Research. "Medrio helps us to facilitate a streamlined and rapid approach to study start-up while maintaining clean data throughout a study's lifecycle."
PharPoint Research and Medrio have enjoyed a mutually productive relationship for many years, beginning in 2010 when PharPoint put their first project in Medrio's EDC system. In 2013, PharPoint Research joined Medrio's Partner Program, through which Medrio provides extensive sales and marketing support, offers previews of upcoming product developments, facilitates new business opportunities for participating CROs, and more. PharPoint Research has found the Partner Program to be a valuable resource throughout the journey toward its current growth, and continues to take advantage of the program's benefits.
Of the increased use of Medrio by PharPoint Research in the coming year, Mike Novotny, founder and CEO of Medrio, said, "Nothing could be more rewarding than knowing that PharPoint Research has found the capabilities of our software, and the benefits of our partner program, to be so helpful during their explosive growth. We're honored that they've chosen to expand their business with us over the next year."
