SAINT LOUIS (April 3, 2019) – Perficient, Inc. (NASDAQ: PRFT) (“Perficient”), the leading digital transformation consulting firm serving Global 2000® and other large enterprise customers throughout North America, today announced it has successfully implemented Oracle’s Siebel Clinical Trial Management System (CTMS) in the Oracle Cloud for one of the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies. The Siebel CTMS implementation, which is the biggest to date in the Oracle Cloud, provides the infrastructure needed to facilitate several hundred clinical trials each year and bring new medicines to market faster.
With the increased complexity of clinical trial studies, and the push to accelerate trial results, life sciences organizations need to modernize their clinical and safety systems. Migrating applications to the cloud helps standardize and optimize clinical study processes, shorten cycle times, and support patient recruitment and participation.
The pharmaceutical company worked with Perficient’s seasoned clinical trial operations solutions team to migrate from a homegrown, on-premises system, to an enhanced Siebel CTMS cloud solution. The successful Siebel CTMS implementation has enabled the company to efficiently manage and monitor the operational aspects of more than 300 global studies. It has experienced reduced clinical trial related costs, increased trial management consistency, streamlined clinical trial management, and improved clinical research productivity.
“Oracle’s Siebel CTMS is critical to the central management of clinical trials,” said Mike Grossman, general manager, Life Sciences at Perficient. “Our client is the largest company leveraging Siebel CTMS in the Oracle Cloud, and we are thrilled to be the partner of choice. We’ve delivered a cloud solution that contained complex integrations and enhancements in a short amount of time, and we look forward to demonstrating this innovative implementation during Oracle Health Sciences Connect.”
