About Novo Nordisk

Novo Nordisk is a global healthcare company, founded in 1923 and headquartered just outside Copenhagen, Denmark.

Their purpose is to drive change to defeat diabetes and other serious chronic diseases such as obesity, and rare blood and rare endocrine diseases.

Project background

Most trial sites are working with no more than a 3-month operating budget, which means that maintaining up-to-date financial records is essential. Difficulties and delays in payment processes may cause a growing workload and burden, and this is why Novo Nordisk LLC came to Flex Databases to find a solution and fix the existing situation.

Flex Databases offered Novo Nordisk to install a combination of CTMS modules – Subject Tracking & Invoicing and Investigators & Sites Management.

The accent was made on Subject Tracking & Invoicing since the module is tailored to proper full-stack grants management.
