Life Sciences

Perficient’s life sciences team has extensive experience in the implementation and integration of the most widely used and highly sought-after clinical and pharmacovigilance software applications. Our services and industry tools enable sponsors and research organizations to get their systems up and running quickly. The results are faster time to value, low and predictable costs, and a better fit for each customer's business.


We focus on applications in four areas, which is why the life sciences practice consists of four complementary divisions. Each division is led by an industry expert who has an in-depth understanding of clinical and safety applications and the problems they help solve. They are seasoned professionals and are our clients' trusted advisors. In addition, each division has a dedicated team of application specialists with decades of combined experience in their respective areas of expertise. 


We also specialize in the implementation of the leading digital signature solution for the life sciences industry, which can be implemented as a stand-alone application or integrated with various clinical trial software applications.


Our experts helps life sciences organizations select, implement, use, and maintain a variety of clinical and pharmacovigilance applications. We can efficiently and cost-effectively assist with software licensing, implementations (on-premises or via private cloud hosting), integrations, migrations, and upgrades. The strategic consulting services we offer enable organizations to streamline business operations.

Perficient takes pride in establishing long-lasting relationships with our clients. Our team’s breadth of technological capabilities and industry experience means quality, flexibility, and value for your organization.

Strategic Partnerships

In support of the services we offer to the life sciences industry, we have developed strategic partnerships with software vendors who understand the unique needs of the industry and who deliver solutions that consistently live up to our rigorous standards.


Our partnership with Oracle extends back to our roots. Our long-standing relationship with their life sciences division has allowed us to develop deep expertise in their solutions, including implementations, integrations, licensing, and even hosting.

Our partnership with ARX grew out of first being their client. We selected their CoSign digital signature solution for internal use within the life sciences team, but quickly realized that CoSign was the one of the best solutions for the industry as a whole.
