FGK feedback

Martin Krauss, Managing Director of FGK Clinical Research
Why FGK decided to pick Flex Databases as a provider for CTMS and TMF modules?

After an extensive evaluation, FGK chose the CTMS system from Flex Databases. The system convinced with its clear structure and intuitive handling. Both the flexible module for managing the payment of investigators and the possibility for CRAs to work offline with the system are clear advantages. Last but not least, the cooperation with the competent Flex Databases team during the evaluation phase also influenced the purchase decision.

What do you expect to achieve with the implementation of Flex Databases?

„FGK expects to standardize and simplify the management of clinical trials across different phases and sponsors by using the CTMS system from Flex Databases and thus to further increase cost-effectiveness and quality.“
