The platform can be used for new biotechs who are just starting to implement clinical research platforms or for companies who are looking for new systems. ClinPlus has all other systems too such as EDC, IWRS, and eTMF so a company can use one platform for all the systems. ClinPlus Clinical Trial Management System is cloud-based so it is useful for end users to access the system without logging into a company server.

ICD is a good tool for companies currently utilizing multiple software platforms to create and monitor clinical trial information. Due to the price, it is best suited for large pharmaceutical manufacturers with active pipelines and high R&D spend. ICD's value is more limited to smaller, more focused companies.

  • We cannot have multiple study accesses for a study in the studies supported by IBM clinical. eg. Coder and Data manager.
  • Though all the study-build related errors are flagged on the study-build page, some errors like incorrect dynamics applied, which eventually affects the subject PDF extraction, reports, etc.
  • When the study is imported from another IBM studies, certain attributes remain running in the background even if it seems to be disabled.

      IBM has many different functionalities as well as modules that can be used depending on what the sponsor wants. I like that they are optional so that when building a study, you can give the sponsor options if they want them or not. Many of the optional models I like to use (Training Tracking for example) as they make tracking Site training so much easier than sending training forms out

      ICD's support team is phenomenal. They are quick to answer or indicate that they need to research to provide an answer. There are some things that they cannot do which we can be annoying but we deal with it (visit windows). I have been very happy with the support team.

      Alternatives Considered

      DZS Software Solutions

      I still prefer using Medidta CTMS as the platform is laid out in a very intuitive way and it is also very easy to integrate all the data into other platforms. With Clin Plus CTMS the system is good but to utilize it to its full potential all the other platforms provided by Clin Plus needs to be purchased also

      It was easier to understand the usability of the software [ICD]. For our engineers [it] was easier to migrate our data, and fully set up everything. We found out that comparing other software[s], this one is safe, easy to use, has more functionalities, [and it's] easier to work with team members everywhere making clinical trials more efficient.
