WIRB-Copernicus Group has boosted its clinical trial management solutions business as it adds CTMS specialist Velos eResearch to its growing family.

The company will tap into Velos' internet platform solution, where it is able to streamline the management of institutional research by linking study status, patient enrollment, calendars, budgets, billing and electronic data capture by centralizing the management of research activities, the company said.

Under terms of the deal, Velos will continue to operate independently and will remain headquartered in Fremont, California.
