eClinicalOS® (eCOS). Where smart research goes to work.
All day, every day, all around the world.

In clinical research, time is money. Think “as much as $8 million in lost revenue for each day a trial is delayed.” If you could speed the research process while reducing frustration, pressure and inefficiency, you’d do it in a heartbeat. And that, conveniently enough, is about how long it takes to make a smart decision when selecting your next data management platform. When every minute of every day counts, you’ll count fewer and fewer of them when you put eCOS to work.

Learn more about the day in the life of eCOS in these organizations below.

A day in the life of an CRO.


9:23 a.m. You’re off an running with a new lead

You’re off an running with a new lead

You’ve got a team of expert study designers (the eCOS-certified kind), and they’re exactly what you need to give you the edge you need with a new prospect. Marketing support and training from eCOS make the RFP process a breeze, and you rest confident knowing you can meet an extremely ambitious (two-week) go-live schedule.


12:39 p.m. Your performance is center stage

he latest quarterly update reveals to your senior leadership that your study management is achieving entirely new levels of efficiency and profitability. Put simply, with eCOS, your study team is getting more done in less time, all while enjoying higher job satisfaction and lower turnover. Best of all, your clients notice the difference and give you more opportunities to expand your business.


4:20 p.m. You--and your client--win the day

Your client calls with the good news that an FDA Advisory Committee confirmed what you already knew: your study data--across sites, time zones and languages--answered every question about safety, efficacy and optimal use. With eCOS, you standardized processes and protocols that produced fewer errors and yet another new standard for excellence in study management.

A day in the life of an ARO.


9:23 a.m. Your work sets the pace

An all-hands budget meeting causes sweaty palms around the room--except yours. You’ve already made your contribution to the belt-tightening cause by choosing eCOS and its unique pay-as-you-go pricing. As you need new design, data capture and data management capabilities, you know you can turn them on and off to stay perfectly in sync with study funding cycles.


12:39 p.m. Your recognition has just begun

A luncheon presentation to colleagues gets exactly the response you wanted: Nods of approval and respect for the integrity of your research. And that’s no small feat, since your study involved multiple researchers on three continents and exceptionally demanding inclusion/exclusion criteria. As the principal investigator, you know that eCOS helped you manage every detail with the kind of precision that could withstand even the most rigorous peer scrutiny.


4:20 p.m. You help the next generation of researchers get going

You recruit new research assistants to ramp up for a study that’s just entering Phase III. Thankfully, the learning curve is flat: your team is already familiar with eCOS from earlier phases, so learning new functions and capabilities is easy work. The platform’s common user interface and intuitive design means adding new members to the team won’t mean adding new frustrations to your study management.

A day in the life of a Sponsor.


2:30 a.m. Your (much-welcomed) wake-up call

Your smartphone chimes, briefly stirring you awake. You glance down at an alert from your eCOS mobile app; your research colleagues in Singapore just helped your team reach a critical milestone in a multinational, multi-year study. As you silence your mobile, you turn back to sleep and rest easy knowing that your team’s productivity and efficiency have peaked just as your already-strained research budgets are beginning to bottom-out.


1:45 p.m. Your decision brings savings, stability and smiles

You discover IT loves eCOS: It’s providing the company with safe, secure, end-to-end capabilities, eliminating the need to string together disparate (or, worse yet, redundant) systems. Finance loves eCOS because its unique pay-as-you-go pricing model lets you pay for only the capabilities you need. R&D loves eCOS because there’s no wondering if it’s just a “flavor of the month”; it’s been trusted by eight of the top 10 pharmaceutical manufacturers and nine of the top 10 CROs. And Clinical Operations loves eCOS because its ease of use helps your researchers spend more time doing what they do best, and less time doing what they like least.


5:38 p.m. You “go big” (and then go home)

It’s another “big event.” Last year, it was the big round of financing; this year, it’s the big merger. So you need to scale up and build out--fast. Fortunately, eCOS has what you need to make it happen: The flexibility to import data from all your trials, the on-board translation functions to handle multilingual studies, and the intuitive design features to make launches a matter of days or weeks, not months.

A day in the life of a Site.


8:22 a.m. You start the day in complete command.

The Monday morning commute was a nightmare, and you’ve got a client status call in eight minutes. But you’re calm, cool and collected because you know Site CTMS has your back. With a quick glance at its all-inclusive dashboard, you’re able to cull precisely the data you need to answer virtually any question you get. And that data is looking pretty darned good, too. Site CTMS shows you not only surpassed enrollment goals, but you’re running ahead on data collection and entry. Best of all, the budget is running right in line with the forecast Site CTMS helped you create. Not too bad for a Monday, you muse.


12:47 p.m. You negotiate with confidence and clarity.

Over a relaxing lunch at a favorite lunch spot, you think about the 50-plus-page contract in the morning mail. A year ago, something like that would have chained you to your desk for lunch battling indigestion from legalese and bad take-out. But you made a smart choice when you brought Site CTMS to your shop, and the business end of your operation has never run better. With readily available model contracts, financial guidance and industry best practices, Site CTMS has helped make contract negotiations about as smooth as the chocolate mousse that just arrived for dessert.


3:14 p.m. Your decision has made all the difference.

Colleagues around the table are nodding their heads in agreement: this year has been your organization’s strongest ever, thanks to Site CTMS. All reimbursable expenses captured and invoiced accurately, payments and billings made – and received – on time, recruitment speed and efficiency both on the increase – and the best news of all, turnover is at an all-time low. The money you saved with Site CTMS’s unique pay-as-you-go subscription model costs meant performance bonuses for all. It feels good to be the hero.


5:22 p.m. You celebrate winning yet another premier study.

You smile broadly knowing your days of watching from the sidelines are a thing of the past. With the power of Site CTMS behind you, leading sponsors and CROs count on you for first-rate performance that consistently exceeds expectations. A reputation as a high enroller that can manage virtually any size or type of trial is now your calling card, and word-of-mouth referrals have already filled this year’s pipeline. It’s time to toast your success.

Customer Testimonials

  • “Merge is undoubtedly one of best software vendors I have ever worked with. Not only do they have a great product, but every member of the team is skilled and experienced in their unique discipline and an absolute pleasure to work with. I can’t thank them enough for all their great work to date, and I look forward to many more years of successful collaboration.”

    - Project Systems Manager

  • "I have to admit, starting a new clinical trial with a perfect EDC system is still not that easy, but with the help of Merge eClinical we did it. The team was a great help, which made all this EDC work so much more simple for me and our team."

    -Director of Research

  • "I cannot believe what I just saw. You guys are highly organized, and I thought I was going to a simple EDC system today, not one this rich!"

    -New Customer on their first eClinicalOS study

  • "We are speaking about eClinicalOS for a few of our clients. We are going to be building an entire go-to-market strategy with this product. We had a great internal meeting and we all pushed hard for this solution, after our project managers were able to build a study without any programmers. Unbelievable!"

    -CRO Partner, seeing the efficiency of one person building an entire study

  • "Having spent the last 20 years working in the industry and with EDC systems since their start in the mid 1990s I am rarely impressed. However, having taken the time to work through the on line training I do think Merge has an EDC product with eClinicalOS that is going to differentiate itself in the market place as a low entry cost, full featured and easy to use EDC system."

    -EDC Consultant, charged with selecting tool of choice for various clients

  • "Thank you for the very rapid response! I am pleased with the capabilities you outlined already, and I am even more excited about the evolution of the product in the future."

    -Customer/Director of Data Management

  • "We did our site initiation today. And at first blush, they were really excited with the eClinicalOS. Everyone commented that the system looked pretty intuitive and was very user friendly."

    -New Customer / First eClinicalOS Study, conducting training with their Sites

  • "I am completely on-board with the eClinicalOS vision. In my past, I have been a DM, designer/software programmer for in-house DM systems, consultant, and now in management. I am a techie geek at heart so I am happy to see that someone else had the brainy idea to create a largely pre-programmed EDC system. Traditional costs for EDC scare folks away and they resort to paper. Kudos to your group for launching at this price-point."
