DZS /ClinPlus® Partners with APT to manage their Clients' clinical information systems environment via WebtrialZ Services
Posted on Tue, Apr 20, 2010

Strategic Alliance between DZS/and APT will facilitate Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) delivery of their recently launched ClinPlus Clinical Trial Management Systems (CTMS) and future Electronic Data Capture (EDC)  and Medical Coding applications in a fully validated 21 CFR Part 11 compliant manner.

Bound Brook, NJ - April 19, 2010 - DZS Software Solutions, Inc. and APT Information Technology Consultants of Allentown, PA have formed a strategic alliance for APT to provide clinical information systems management and hosting services via their WebtrialZ offering to enable software delivery as a service (SaaS) for DZS's recently released, web-based clinical trial management software as well as their future EDC and Coding solutions.  Both companies plan on demonstrating their solutions at the upcoming ACRP Global Conference in Tampa, FL, April 23rd - 27th.  (DZS Booth #529 and APT Booth #229)

SaaS-enabled technologies have gained increased popularity of late because they can be implemented without IT department support, don't require significant up-front capital investment, and eliminate the need for installed servers and the associated maintenance costs. All that's required is an internet connection and browser. Until recently, skeptics have been reluctant to adopt SaaS technology in part because of security concerns. However, using APT's WebtrialZ Services, software applications can be deployed rapidly with the assurance that the data is safe, secure and managed to a level that will meet the 21 CFR Part 11 standards and the most rigorous Pharmaceutical Sponsor audit. APT has extensive experience managing and documenting clinical information systems with services that include the creation and management of IQ/OQ documents for the servers, software and associated equipment, and an established change-management process used to facilitate and document any system changes.

The availability of ClinPlus CTMS in a SaaS delivery model is also an extremely important and timely development for many emerging Life Science organizations struggling with the challenges of improving clinical trial productivity while at the same time reducing expenses.  "The appeal of this delivery model is its immediate availability to Life Science companies of all sizes, and its ability to accommodate a wide range of the requirements needed to quickly and effectively deploy the software and get clinical studies up and running in weeks and not months," said Bob Borysko, DZS's VP of Product Development.  "By improving global user accessibility and communications, tremendous efficiencies and time-savings can be realized, manual operations can be reduced and redundant data and tasks can be completely eliminated."
