SAN DIEGO, Aug. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Tekton Research, a clinical research site based in Austin, Texas recently began using the Projecis collaboration platform to manage Phase 1 4 clinical research studies.
Tekton Research Chief Executive Officer Kip McKenzie says his team reviewed various project management and collaboration tools and found Projecis to be a sophisticated program well suited to clinical research. The team also needed one platform to streamline communications, monitor project milestones, and organize data to be searchable and accessible at any time by the entire research team.
"What won the team over was how Projecis could help our high-volume research sites manage multiple research programs at once, and have conversations with the research team, in an organized way," says McKenzie. "We see Projecis as a tool that will replace some of our current server files and communications applications, and enable our team to better communicate project objectives and outcomes with all program stakeholders."
Projecis Chief Executive Officer Russ Holmes says the platform is designed for organizations such as Tekton Research that need to communicate with multiple audiences such as staff, clients and consultants in a way that keeps the project objectives in the forefront and controls data flow.
"As Tekton Research continues to grow attracting more clients, investigators, and patients it needs a way to communicate and ensure milestones are reached," says Holmes. "Projecis will enable Tekton to better manage its studies and continually improve processes based on historical data from each research study."
Projecis (pro-jek-sis) enables project stakeholders to connect teams, organize data, and disseminate information for better business decision-making. Project team members can access files, imported data, milestones, tasks, assignments, issues, and news, which can be professional or webcam video updates. This secure, web-based platform allows for enhanced communications features including VoIP calling, embedded conference center, integration with corporate email and calendar, and private chat with intercom. Team knowledge is maintained with real-time commenting for group discussions, posted content and assignment status updates. Project management tools are also available including Gantt charts, resource views, task percent complete and project health. www.projecis.com. Twitter: @Projecis. Facebook: Projecis.
