Clintrax to Use Acorn Applications' "TrialCTA" Cloud-Based Tracking Solution for Transparent and Accelerated Clinical Trial Agreement Negotiations

RALEIGH, N.C., March 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Acorn Applications, LLC, a developer of cloud-based analytic clinical research solutions, announced today that Clintrax Global, a clinical trial contract negotiation company, has selected TrialCTA as its new global contract management software solution.

TrialCTA, Acorn Applications' lead product, is a cloud-based Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) application that helps Clinical Research Organizations (CRO's), medical device, and pharmaceutical companies manage and track the complex, global clinical trial contracts associated with clinical research studies.  The application combines an intuitive workflow with a flexible rules engine to manage, track and accelerate clinical research study site contracts. In addition, TrialCTA is built upon Acorn Applications' advanced technology that provides built-in integration capability with any external system including Document Management, EDC, CTMS or IVR, allowing seamless incorporation of contract negotiation data into the overall clinical trial site initiation process.

"We chose TrialCTA because it is the only system on the market specifically designed for the Clinical Trial Agreement (CTA) lifecycle, which greatly enhances our global service offering," said Brandon Evans, CEO of Clintrax Global, Inc. "This system enables us to provide real-time, accurate reporting and transparency to our clients. TrialCTA is fully customizable, giving us the ability to cater to the different tracking and reporting needs for each client. More importantly, its flexible notification system ensures that no agreement is lost or neglected. Both of our companies are very excited to embark on this mutually beneficial relationship."

Gordon Jones, CEO of Acorn Applications, stated, "Clintrax Global's business is clinical study contracting, so we're extremely proud to have been selected to assist them. Study sponsors are demanding real-time transparency and faster study startup, so we designed TrialCTA from the ground up to specifically meet the tracking needs of Clinical Trial Agreements."

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach. Real-time adjustments to improve revenues, reduce costs, or mitigate risk rely on applications that minimize latency on a variety of data sources. Jack Norris reviews best practices to show how companies develop, deploy, and dynamically update these applications and how this data-first...
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
