Clinical Software Solutions Organization Announces the Release of Version 2.1 of their ClinPlus Clinical Trials Management System (CTMS)

October 5, 2012

Bound Brook, NJ – October 5, 2012 – DZS Software Solutions (DZS), a provider of software products that support several aspects in the performance of clinical trials, today announced the official release of ClinPlus CTMS Version 2.1.  This release builds on an already robust and flexible system with about 45 specific enhancements that are a direct result of user input.

Some of the most significant enhancements include:

– Microsoft SharePoint® Integration.  This new feature will add the ability to define SharePoint Sites and use these sites to browse and download documents.  This enables organizations to maintain their investment in SharePoint without needing to replicate copies of documents in CTMS.   Alternately, documents may be linked to a local network file or uploaded to the CTMS database.

– Custom Fields.  Invariably, users will want to capture information that is not included in the standard CTMS product but is specific to their organization or individual project requirements.  This enhancement allows the users to create custom fields on nearly all global and project tables.  These fields may be of any type (date, text, checkbox, dropdown, etc.) and can be used exactly like standard fields when defining custom reports (sorting, grouping, etc.).

– Vendor Costs.  There are several new features that have been added to enable users to track costs and payments to vendors.  This enables users to view the entire scope of the trial management costs from within the CTMS system.

– Site Pass-Thru Costs. This enhancement enables users to track Site Pass-Thru costs in addition to Subject-related costs for visits and events to get a full view of all Site costs for a clinical trial. The Pass-Thru Costs can be included in Budget Templates and Site Budgets, or can be added to a Site as a non-budgeted cost.

 Subject Event SAEs.  Users can now assign a payment amount for each Serious Adverse Event reported by a Site.  Like other Site costs in the CTMS system, the amount of the payment can be set in the Site Budget for each Site.

– Download to ZIP.  Provides the ability to download all site documents for a selected site to an easy to email ZIP file.
