Linical is a global contract research organization (CRO) that provides expertise to pharmaceutical and biotech companies to help them bring drug therapies from the development stage through the clinical trial and regulatory approval processes. The company, which was founded in 2005 and is headquartered in Japan, focuses the bulk of its work on oncology, infectious disease, and CNS research.
As pharmaceutical and biotech companies scale, there eventually comes a time when managing processes like documentation using paper-based, home-grown systems becomes impossible. This is precisely the position Linical found itself in a few years ago when it merged with fellow CRO Accelovance to grow its global footprint.
As it happened, Accelovance had the foresight to implement and use Qualio as an enterprise quality management system (eQMS). After the unification took place, Linical examined Qualio themselves, liked what they saw, and decided to implement the solution across the entire organization. In particular, Linical was looking for an eQMS that was easy to use, easy to maintain, familiar to the market and cost-effective. Qualio checked all the boxes. At this time, Linicial has more than 950 global users on Qualio, and more users are added as the company continues to scale.
