CARY, N.C., June 16 /PRNewswire/ -- iAdvantage Software, Inc., a leading provider of enterprise-wide solutions for managing development and pre-clinical life science studies, today announced that Springborn, a full-service Contract Research Organization, headquartered in Wareham, Massachusetts, is deploying the eStudy(TM) hosted solution to manage its global environmental testing.
At the end of 2007 Springborn, a Smithers Group company, was faced with a good problem; it had achieved significant growth and had steady study back-log. "In addition to expanding our staff and resources to manage our growth, we realized that we could operate more efficiently by investing in technology," commented Susan Shepherd, Springborn's Director of Ecotoxicology. After careful due diligence and pilot testing, Springborn chose to implement eStudy. "Although the investment is significant, we strongly believe the invested capital and time will add value to our customers. Our clients recognize the value-add of the data back-up and security provided to them with eStudy hosted at Cegedim Dendrite. With eStudy, reports that previously required 6-8 weeks to generate can now be delivered in as little as 6-8 hours after study completion," said Shepherd.
eStudy is an enterprise solution Springborn can implement throughout its organization to manage multiple study types from protocol to report. With eStudy, flexibility and control is placed in the hands of the design scientist. eStudy guides study design scientists through a step-by-step scientific research process to design their study, data collection templates, queries, report templates, and report tables. An electronic laboratory notebook (ELN) is dynamically created for each experiment identified within the study. "eStudy will continually grow with Springborn, easily adapt to new study-types and interface with 3rd party instruments and tools," stated Diana Michelotti, Director of Marketing and Sales for iAdvantage.
