CARY, NC -- (Marketwired) -- 06/11/14 -- Industry Standard Research (ISR) today announced the release of their "CRO Quality Benchmarking - Phase I Service Providers" report. This research, based on in-depth surveys collected from 113 pharmaceutical Phase I decision-makers, indicates that SGS Life Sciences out-performs customers' expectations across a number of critical delivery drivers.
"Loyalty in the clinical research services industry is extraordinarily difficult to achieve," explained Kevin Olson, CEO of Industry Standard Research. "The challenges associated with professional services industries and other highly regulated industries tend to lead to little differentiation among service providers.
