eClinical technology company ClinPhone has secured a contract with Bayer Yakuhin, the Japanese affiliate of Bayer. ClinPhone has been named the company’s preferred supplier of randomization and trial supply management services, specifically using ClinPhone’s Interactive Voice Response System (IVRS) for a phase III trial in Japan. ClinPhone opened its Asia Pacific offices in Melbourne Australia in late 2006 and credits the move for helping land this new contract.
ClinPhone's director of business development for Asia Pacific expanded on the importance of having a physical presence in the region.
“This important project demonstrates our commitment to serving our clients in this region. The location of the offices in Melbourne means that ClinPhone is able to provide a more consultative service across the Asia Pacific. The availability of business, technical and operational expertise in Asian business hours will really complement our established 24/7 global service and enable us to focus on the needs of our customers as we continue to strengthen our presence in the region,” he stated.
