Advarra (formerly Forte Research System)
Advarra is well suited for monitoring the progress of the clinical trials for a research organization. It's biggest advantage is the fact that the participants details and accrual monitoring shows the progress of the clinical trial. OnCore provides the capability of creating and using study calendars and especially monitoring and tracking participants visits. OnCore may be less appropriate to use in regards to grants and funds tracking.

MasterControl
MasterControl Clinical Excellence would be great for short or long-term projects where regulatory approval flows are required. It would not be great as an Onboarding platform or learning management system as the user interface is not extremely intuitive nor is the design super user friendly or modern. It does do a few core things very well, which include storing documentation and managing streamlined approval processes.

MasterControl
  • When starting packets you get multiple emails daily while a packet is in progress, some emails come when it is not your turn to make any edits. Too many notifications.
  • It is sometimes difficult to see who has seen all levels of a document in a packet before you sign off. Everyone may not get a chance to view it.
  • Search function is good but simple searches can turn up too many unnecessary results.
