Quanticate ranked in the top 20% for Innovation.
David Underwood, President and CEO for Quanticate, states, "Quanticate is honored to be recognized as a top tier organization and industry leader in the area of Innovation. Our company is focused on offering the best possible solutions now and looking at what our customers will need in the future. We believe that the development of technologies such as our innovative CliQ portal is part of the reason that customers have recognized us for this award. The CliQ portal has been developed in collaboration with our customers to offer intelligent workflows for clinical study management, store documents and enhance cross-study team communication together with the ability to store, visualize and analyze study, program or portfolio level clinical data."
Life Science Leader developed the annual CRO Leadership Awards in 2012 to honor the top performers based on leading industry research to better serve pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical executives in their CRO vetting process. Life Science Leader partnered with professional marketing research agency Nice Insight, who created a survey method that combines the surveying of thousands of industry executives with other key analyses to serve both partnering groups and facilitate better overall outsourcing collaborations.
On an annual basis, Nice Insight conducts a pharmaceutical and biotechnology survey, which is deployed to 40,000 outsourcing-facing biotech and pharma executives. For example, the total 2012 sample size was over 11,000. Outsourcing companies are rated on six different attributes -- Quality, Reliability, Productivity, Regulatory, Affordability, and Innovation. Leadership Award winners scored in the top 20% of all CROs for the previously mentioned categories.
"At Life Science Leader, we think having data-driven awards is more objective and valuable than having those awarded as a result of the nomination and voting process. The winners should be proud of these awards because they were determined by data gathered from customers," shared Rob Wright, Editor-in-Chief, Life Science Leader.
