Next-generation cloud application enables study build in as little as 7 weeks

PLEASANTON, CA — June 21, 2018 — Veeva Systems (NYSE:VEEV) today announced that leading pharmaceutical companies and CROs are now using Veeva Vault EDC to improve data management in their clinical trials. Vault EDC provides a modern, flexible EDC solution to build studies faster and more effectively run trials. In just over a year since the product’s availability, 12 early adopters have initiated studies with Vault EDC, including a top 20 global pharmaceutical company. Multiple studies are already live and using Vault EDC across a wide range of therapeutic areas, including oncology, ophthalmology, medical device, and cardiovascular.

“The ability to effectively manage clinical data is essential as trials become more complex,” said Alison Liddy, SVP clinical risk and data management at ICON, who is running a trial on behalf of a customer leveraging Veeva Vault EDC. “Veeva Vault EDC gives us a next-generation EDC to collect patient data easier and with greater flexibility.”

Vault EDC is helping clinical data management teams accelerate their study design and start trials in as little as seven weeks. Studies are configured utilizing drag-and-drop tools instead of editing complicated lines of code, dramatically reducing time to build a study database. The advanced architecture and easy-to-use, intuitive interface of Vault EDC also deliver a simplified experience managing study changes without costly migrations or downtime.

“We recognize the critical importance that EDC system set-up, maintenance, and flexibility plays in data collection and decision-making during oncology trials,” said Robert Wittig, president at Trevie Research who is managing the International Myeloma Foundation’s ASCENT (Aggressive Smoldering Cure Evaluating Novel Rx Transplant) trial. “Veeva Vault EDC provides a modern, adaptive EDC cloud application that establishes a new era of innovation in clinical data management.”
