LINEA System teams up with Trial By Fire in fully-integrated partnership


PARSIPPANY, NJ and OAKLAND, CA - LINEA System, LLC and Trial By Fire Solutions, LLC have begun a partnership to offer their clinical trial solutions, AcceleTrial™ and SimpleTrials, respectively, as a fully integrated solution. This partnership will allow sponsors to take advantage of AcceleTrial™’s study start-up benefits to select and activate the right sites, and of SimpleTrial’s robust clinical trial management system (CTMS) capabilities.

LINEA System’s Study Start-Up System (SSUS) provides access to a built-in global database of over one hundred thousand objectively-ranked investigators and sites as well as an intuitive and automated workflow to ensure study start-up progresses efficiently. SimpleTrials provides end-to-end study management functionality, including eTMF, electronic visit reports, and site payments, fully validated and available as the industry’s first on-demand subscription based CTMS offering.

“Having LINEA System as a partner enables our clients to more effectively identify and qualify sites based on specific criteria” said Nancy Cecchettini, Co-founder and Chief Product Officer of Trial by Fire Solutions. “For more than a decade, we have provided comprehensive CTMS functionality to manage study start-up through closeout and this partnership will enable our clients to quickly move through the site selection and document completion aspects of their studies with one end-to-end service.”

The synthesis of LINEA Systems’ and SimpleTrials’ technologies will result in a more seamless execution of clinical trials from beginning to end. When a trial is optimized and proceeds efficiently, vital medicines reach patients who need them most.

“The current climate demands that clinical teams approach trials in an advanced way, considering all the hurdles to speed availability of critical treatments to patients” said Kathleen Colatrella, Founder and President of LINEA System. “I’m excited to begin the partnership with SimpleTrials and share the value of an SSMS with more clinical teams, and ultimately, make an impact on how trials are conducted.”

Colatrella and Cecchettini are excited to launch their partnership at such a time when efficiency and accuracy of clinical trials are more crucial than ever.
