Overall Satisfaction with IBM Clinical Development (ICD)

The software is utilized within specific departments for the design and management of clinical trial development. The cloud based format allows for instant shared access to data and information that forms the basis of the research the company carries out. Creating reports of findings is a simple process and the software on a whole is simple to learn.
  • Cloud based sharing of information
  • Trail Design
  • Trail Development
  • Menus can be confusing until you have spent time with the software.
  • A good internet connection is requiered.
  • Information is repeated.
  • Presented over all cost savings
  • Improved time management
  • Replaced other software previously in use.
IBM Clinical Trail offers an improvement on the above as it is considerably easier to navigate and has many more features. The side did seem faster however and could be used via an app which is useful in a busy environment. Both are around the same price bracket give or take.
Menus are easy to navigate/overall speed is good/ members of the team found the software easy and learned to use it relatively quickly. They are keen to keep using it whenever viable/overall it is a positive rating and the developer has scope to add further features in the future.
The software offers very good support and I would actually say that this element is better than alternative software that we had used in the past. There is always someone available to discuss any issues and help.

The software [IBM Clinical Development] is ideal if you are looking for a way to gather information on various trials and share [it] with other departments and members of your group. This can be done via the cloud which simplifies the whole process. The perfect platform to capture manage analyze and report date studies on multiple areas. The software, however, is less suited to a real time situation.
