Top 5 CRO Uses VISTA for Multi-National EDC Clinical Trial
VISTA, a web-based site assessment management service for electronic data
capture studies, adds new business with a top 5 Contract Research Organization
MEDIA, PA February 8, 2008 - Scientific Software Tools,

for clinical trials announced today that a top 5 CRO selected VISTA, a web-based
site assessment management service, for use in a multi-national Electronic Data
Capture (EDC) clinical trial.
Before an EDC clinical study begins, a site assessment is performed to ensure
that the technology infrastructure at the investigative sites meets the study
requirements. This is currently performed manually by contacting site personnel

about their computers. VISTA streamlines this process by automating the collection
of such information, thus shortening the process by up to 2 weeks. Using VISTA,
the necessary information is obtained within seconds to minutes and an automated
report is electronically delivered to all designated stakeholders.

manual site assessment processes."
"VISTA has consistently exceeded the expectations of our customers. We will
continue to improve and upgrade VISTA to provide a high-quality service that
enhances the site assessment experience for all stakeholders involved in a clinical
