Sanofi Selects BioClinica’s OnPoint as Enterprise CTMS
- Global Healthcare Leader Becomes the Latest Pharmaceutical Company to Choose BioClinicas Industry-Leading Clinical Trial Management System -
NEWTOWN, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- BioClinica (BIOC) ®, Inc., (NASDAQ: BIOC), a global provider of clinical trial management services, announced today that Sanofi , one of the worlds largest pharmaceutical companies, has selected BioClinicas OnPoint as the companys standard CTMS (Clinical Trial Management System). With this decision, Sanofi plans to utilize OnPoint CTMS for all clinical trial management activity.
Sanofi is the largest in a growing list of companies that includes other top ten pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers to embrace BioClinicas innovative clinical trial management system, making OnPoint the leading CTMS solution for forward-thinking companies.
BioClinica is extremely proud that Sanofi has chosen OnPoint CTMS, said Mark Weinstein, CEO of BioClinica. We look forward to helping fulfill the long-term vision of Sanofi through the use of embedded and transformational applications. This is further evidence that our eClinical solutions are not only leading from a technology perspective, but that our people, products and services are some of the best in the industry.
BioClinicas OnPoint CTMS improves clinical trial management by helping sponsors easily centralize and share trial data. OnPoints unique Office-Smart design will maximize Sanofis existing investment in Microsoft technologies by letting users access, update, and report on clinical trial data from within the familiar environment of Microsoft Office and SharePoint. Using SharePoint as a collaborative portal, OnPoints web services integration with other trial management products provides an end-to-end trial management solution. This approach lessons the financial impact of trial management, greatly enhances user adoption, and helps avoid the pitfalls of outdated, legacy CTMS products.
Providing an end-to-end clinical development platform that unifies the best available solutions is an important part of BioClinicas approach to trial management, said Peter Benton, President of BioClinicas eClinical Solutions. OnPoints ability to exchange information across multiple systems, including Sanofis choice of eTMF (Electronic Trial Master File), makes OnPoint the best choice for clinical trial management and demonstrates why BioClinica is the innovation leader in eClinical products.
I am confident that OnPoint is the right CTMS for Sanofi and will help bring new therapies and treatments to market faster, continued Mr. Benton. As part of Sanofis extensive evaluation process, we conducted a proof-of-concept implementation which demonstrated how OnPoint met Sanofis key business imperatives of collaboration, integration, and architectural openness.
As a Microsoft Gold partner, BioClinica has long been known for its industry-leading integration with Microsoft technology. BioClinica was recently awarded a Microsoft Life Sciences Innovation Award for creating the OnPoint CTMS Monitor Visit Report which makes it easier for clinical site monitors to enter essential study information with or without an internet connection. Andrea McGonigle, national managing director for Life Sciences at Microsoft Corporation, stated, BioClinica and Sanofi have both recognized the power of the Microsoft Platform and are using these technologies to build the future of how clinical trials will be run. The power of the Microsoft stack allows scalability and flexibility, and puts the information back in the users hands. Instead of monolithic database architectures, Sanofi will be empowered to liberate their clinical trial data and make faster decisions.
