StudyManager Evolve(TM) Gaining Momentum in Chinese Market

Published: Aug 19, 2011

Seattle, WA – Aug. 18, 2011 - StudyManager, a leading provider of integrated clinical trial management software (CTMS) and electronic data capture (EDC) solutions, today announced that GCP ClinPlus Ltd., a well-established clinical research organization (CRO) in China, and Chongqing Jiachen Biotechnology have deployed StudyManager’s Evolve software to manage their latest clinical studies.

Both deployments represent significant milestones for StudyManager, which began its expansion into China in early 2009. Demand for StudyManager Evolve, the company’s sponsor/CRO-focused product, has gained traction internationally following the success of numerous clinical trials and increased market share in the U.S.

Evolve Gains Momentum as CROs in China Seek Integrated Study Management Tools

“With the increasing demand for EDC in the Chinese market, Evolve attracts more and more interest from Chinese CROs, especially with its ability to support Chinese language,” said Feng Cheng, Director, Asia Pacific Business Development at StudyManager. “We are happy that Evolve plays a very important role in GCP ClinPlus’ studies, of which there have been five using Evolve deployed over the past 18 months. It has been exciting to work with the GCP ClinPlus team – this is a milestone achievement for both companies.”

“We spent more than a year evaluating EDC systems that include both U.S. and Chinese vendors’ products,” said Dr. Ivan Zhai, CEO of GCP ClinPlus Ltd. “We selected Evolve as our EDC system because it is a simple, easy-to-use system that our sites are excited to use, with minimal user training. This should improve data entry compliance and data quality right from the start, while maintaining happy site users.”

Flexible, Cost-Effective, Easy to Use

Chongqing Jiachen Biotechnology Ltd. found Evolve to be flexible and easy to use – an ideal solution for managing data on behalf of the small- to mid-size biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies for which Chongqing Jiachen manages clinical trials.

“StudyManager Evolve is a product that meets our clinical trial needs,” said Joy Jin, Study Director, Chongqing Jiachen. “Most important, Evolve is U.S. FDA 21 CFR Part 11 compliant and therefore meets our global filing needs for a new hepatitis B treatment drug. StudyManager was willing to work with us to make this an affordable solution for a Chinese pharmaceutical company like Chongqing Jiachen. It's very clear that StudyManager understands the needs of its clients.”

Enhance Efficiency and Boost Productivity through Centralized Study Management

Evolve's web-based interface integrates clinical trial management and electronic data capture tools. These features are highly scalable, and can be used together seamlessly or independently. Evolve enables users to create a single, centralized and secure location for key study information, simplifying study operations and enhancing team efficiency.
