eTMF Market Expected to Grow Considerably Over the Next Three Years

Informing the pharmaceutical drug development, manufacturing and commercialization industry

CARY, NC--(Marketwired - October 18, 2016) - Industry Standard Research (ISR) today announced the release of a report titled "eTMF Market and Service Provider Dynamics." This report is designed to give eTMF software providers, CROs and pharmaceutical companies information on the current and future landscape of this fast-growing market.

"The uptake of commercial, built-for-purpose eTMF solutions is accelerating and we believe it is important to provide the industry with an independent assessment of the market and providers," said Andrew Schafer, President of Industry Standard Research. "Making informed purchase decisions means evaluating potential eTMF partners holistically. For this report, we went right to the source and interviewed actual users of eTMF systems at CROs and pharma companies to see how they make eTMF software decisions, which product attributes are most important in selecting an eTMF provider and which are most important in terms of user satisfaction. We then asked respondents to rate the performance of the eTMF providers they have used across a series of 21 product/service attributes."

This report provides a Consumer Reports-style analysis of 25 eTMF providers. Each was evaluated across 21 service quality attributes by respondents who have hands-on experience with the provider. ISR believes this report to be the most comprehensive assessment of quality in the eTMF space. In all, 225 service encounters were captured for this report.

For buyers of eTMF solutions, the report includes highly valuable information to help guide your selection process. For eTMF providers, this report offers a wealth of information to guide operational, marketing and competitive strategy. Schafer concluded by saying, "The increased adoption of eTMF systems will have a profound impact on the entire clinical development process. For example, this research finds that within three years more than ~50% of investigative sites will have access to a sponsor/CRO eTMF application, up from ~20% today."

The report includes data on 25 different eTMF providers, including: Arivis (Clireo), Biovia (QUMAS), CareLex, Covance, Database Integrations, EMC, Ennov, Forte Research, Freyr, MasterControl, Mayo Clinic, Montrium, NCGS, NextDocs, Oracle, Paragon Solutions, PharmaVigilant I-Vault, Phlexglobal, Safe-BioPharma, SterlingBio, SureClinical, TransPerfect Trial Interactive, Veeva Vault, Wingspan Technology, WIRB-Copernicus/ePharmaSolutions.
