Company Acquires the Assets of eClinical Provider to Drive Change in the Market Landscape
STAMFORD, CT – March 21, 2012 ArisGlobal, a leading provider of solutions to the life sciences industry, announces the acquisition of all assets of unithink, NV., a Belgium-based technology provider of an integrated eClinical application suite.
The newly-acquired platform seamlessly integrates electronic data capture (EDC), randomization, clinical trial supply and electronic patient reported outcomes (ePRO) technologies. This allows organizations to quickly and easily configure tools to meet their workflow and data management challenges.
“This eClinical suite will offer seamless integration between key clinical applications to significantly reduce R&D costs to all sponsors regardless of the phase of clinical trial,” explained Simon Sparkes, vice president, European operations with ArisGlobal. “In the past, a sponsor would have used multiple vendors to provide this same functionality.”
The newly acquired technology is currently being integrated with ArisGlobal’s existing clinical product offerings including agClinical (clinical trial management system (CTMS)), agEncoder (dictionary management), agXchange SIR (clinical safety reporting) and ARISg (pharmacovigilance and clinical safety management) to offer the industry the most powerful application suite for clinical trials available.
“Our strategic vision is to offer a fully-integrated suite of products that are also, individually, best-in-class. The unithink platform perfectly complements our existing product portfolio,” said John Cline, vice president, field operations at ArisGlobal. “Now there is a real alternative to the established big name providers. This acquisition changes the eClinical landscape.”
